Walker's lead shrinking in new Iowa caucus poll

Posted: Updated:

Other candidates are beginning to chip away at Scott Walker's lead among likely Republican caucus voters in Iowa.

A new Quinnipiac University poll released today shows Wisconsin's governor with 18 percent support.  That's down from 25 percent in a February poll and 21 percent in May.

Behind Walker are Donald Trump and Ben Carson at 10 percent each, Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Rand Paul with 9 percent, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 8 percent and then Sen. Marco Rubio with 7.  Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a former Iowa caucus winner, has 5 percent support.

No one else polled above 4 percent.

Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll says, "Those who thought the Republican race in the Iowa caucuses might begin to clarify itself better think again.  As even more candidates toss their hats into the ring, the race has gotten even more muddled."
