Nasty, Personal, GOP Civil War Breaks Out as Trump and Cruz Slug it Out in Iowa

From Yahoo News:

Des Moines (United States) (AFP) – One might be forgiven for forgetting that there are 12 Republicans still in the White House race — for now, it’s a two-man show.

The battle between billionaire frontrunner Donald Trump and maverick Senator Ted Cruz is the main event for conservatives, who are torn with nine days to go before the Iowa caucus.

The two candidates are dominating the polls ahead of the February 1 caucus in the small heartland state, the first to vote in the US presidential nominations process, and both are due to make appearances here Saturday.

The latest opinion poll, conducted by CNN among likely Republican voters, shows Trump with 37 percent support to 26 percent for Cruz. Florida Senator Marco Rubio follows with 14 percent. The margin of error is six percentage points.

At the start of January, several polls had Cruz in first place.

Just a few months ago, in September, the 69-year-old real estate tycoon Trump and the 45-year-old Texas senator joined forces for a rally against Washington’s nuclear deal with Iran. They refused to attack each other until just recently.

But Trump now calls his chief rival “a nasty guy” and a hypocrite for slamming New York values while taking money from donors in the Big Apple.

The two men are vying for support from the same people: the voters farthest to the right of the political spectrum — the target for the primaries.
