For the first time, presidential hopeful, Sen. Ted Cruz has taken a lead over Donald Trump in Iowa, according to a Des Moines Register poll.

via CBS News:

Cruz is now the number one choice for 31 percent of likely Iowa GOP caucus goers, up 21 points from the last time the poll was taken. This is the biggest leap in five caucus cycles, the newspaper’s records show.

Trump trails Cruz at 21 percent, with Carson at 13 percent, Marco Rubio at 10 percent and Jeb Bush at 6 percent. Carson faced the biggest decline, losing 15 percent and falling from front-runner to third place.

Rather than merely downplaying the poll, Trump took to Twitter to call the Des Moines Register’s poll ‘biased.’

While Trump has made some very good points on the campaign trail, his propensity to go overboard with his obnoxious knee-jerk statements will hopefully (ultimately?) be his downfall.
