Sanders overtakes Clinton in latest poll, Trump still top GOP contender

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders leading Hillary Clinton in Iowa for the first time in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Two months ago, Sanders trailed Clinton in Iowa by 21 percentage points.

But the new survey gives Sanders a 41 percent to 40 percent edge over the former secretary of state. Vice President Joe Biden, who is contemplating a run for president, placed third at 12 percent.

Meanwhile, on the Republican side, Donald Trump is still sitting high atop the pack.

In the new CNN/ORC poll, 51 percent of GOP voters say Trump is most likely to win the Republican nomination.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson jumped 10 points to 19 percent, with Jeb Bush trailing in third place with 9 percent.
