One is an outlier, two a trend. Donald Trump’s hegemony in the GOP presidential polls has been cracked this week in the socially conservative state of Iowa. A day after Dr. Ben Carson took an eight-point lead over Donald Trump in a Quinnipiac survey, a Bloomberg/Des Moines Register poll out on Friday has Carson up by nine percentage points over Trump. Carson is at 28 percent support in the Hawkeye State in the new poll, while Trump is at 19 percent. Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz…

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Will Iowa voters be getting trashed again by Donald Trump today? (Or by one of his interns?) We saw the unprecedented action of a Trump apology yesterday, after he re-tweeted a tweet from one of his interns who wrote, “#BenCarson is now leading in the #polls in #Iowa… Too much #Monsanto in the #corn creates issues in the brain? @realDonaldTrump #GOP“ That came after the first poll since mid-July where Trump wasn’t leading — in this case, a Quinnipiac survey that has Ben Carson up relatively big — 8 points — over…

It’s not surprising that Donald Trump has touched upon the third rail of 9/11 politics by mentioning the inconvenient fact that George W.

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Just in time for the Sunday morning shows, the Jeb Bush campaign on Saturday night is taking a shot at Donald Trump’s abilities to be the next commander in chief. On Friday, Bush told Charlie Rose that he didn’t know if Trump had the right stuff to keep America safe. But a new web video released by the Bush camp on Saturday night shows that in fact, Bush has little confidence that Trump knows what he’s talking about at all when it comes…

in 2017/Top Headlines by

The latest poll out of Iowa is not good news for the two Florida Republicans competing in the GOP presidential primary contest.

Real estate mogul Donald Trump continues to lead in this survey with 23 precent support.
