CNN poll released this morning suggests that Carly Fiorina is dramatically losing support after a surge of positive reviews following the last Republican debate.

Trump still leads the field with 27 percent while Ben Carson experienced an eight point boost to 22 percent.

Fiorina is now only polling at four percent, down from her 15 percent showing in the same poll in September. She is now tied with Chris Christie and Ted Cruz who also polled at about four percent.

Trump and Carson are tied at 23 percent support among registered Republican women, while Fiorina is at six percent.

According to CNN, Fiorina has dropped 11 points among women and 12 points among men, and also fallen 18 points among independents since its previous poll in September.

Much of Fiorina’s support is driven by her debate performances. The last CNN poll of the field was conducted in September shortly after the CNN debate in California. The next Republican presidential debate will be held on October 28.

Here are the full results:

Trump 27
Carson 22
Bush 8
Rubio 8
Huckabee 5
Paul 5
Christie 4
Cruz 4
Fiorina 4
Kasich 3
Santorum 2
Graham 1

The CNN/ORC Poll was conducted by telephone October 14-17 among a random national sample of 1,028 adults. Results among the 465 registered voters who say they are Republicans or independents who lean toward the Republican Party have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
