At present, Trump’s closest competitors, senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, both poll at 21 percent. In December, Cruz’s popularity stood at 18 percent, while Rubio had 13 percent of likely voter support.
On Monday evening, Cruz won the Republican caucus in Iowa, coming ahead of Trump with 3.3 percent of the caucus votes.
Trump accused the Cruz of voter fraud and said he would probably file a lawsuit regarding the results of the Iowa caucus.
Cruz dismissed accusations characterizing the complaint as yet another of Trump’s tantrums.
