Poll: Trump Takes Second Place in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nationwide

Washington, DC

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to climb the polls — this time in Iowa.

The numbers come from a new Quinnipiac University poll. Trump barely trails former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in New Hampshire, and he is trailing Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in Iowa.

“Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker continues to lead the Republican field in the Hawkeye state with 18 percent, while Ben Carson tied with Trump for second. Walker has yet to announce he is running for president, but is expected to launch his campaign this month,” CNN reported.

The recent poll data shows Trump has sky rocketed in several polls since announcing his White House bid just two weeks ago.

“Now at 10 percent in the Quinnipiac poll, a Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics poll that came two weeks before his announcement — and gave Walker the lead with a similar 17 percent— had Trump checking with just four percent of support. And he is now registering as second nationwide — behind Bush — in a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday,” CNN noted.
