Donald Trump has a narrow lead on Ted Cruz as the first contest of the 2016 GOP Presidential primary process is now just days away.

According to the Des Moines Register:

“Businessman Donald Trump and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz are in a dead heat in Iowa in a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday as the final days approach for the Feb. 1 Iowa caucuses

The statewide survey of likely Iowa caucus participants shows a two-man race with Trump at 31 percent and Cruz at 29 percent. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is at 13 percent with no other candidate above 7 percent. The difference between the two front-runners is within the poll’s margin of error.

This is virtually unchanged from results of a January 11 survey by Quinnipiac University showing Trump at 31 percent, with 29 percent for Cruz and 15 percent for Rubio.

“One week before the caucuses gather, the question is which candidate has the best field organization. If the events of the last two weeks haven’t moved the needle, one wonders what would change it in the next six days,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.”
