Posted: Updated:

For the first time this election season, a new poll has Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump not in the lead.

Dr. Ben Carson is now taking the edge over Donald Trump according to a new Quinnipiac Poll released today. Carson takes the lead with 28% support among likely Iowa Republican Caucus participants, compared to Trump's 20%. Sen. Marco Rubio has the next highest amount of support at 13%, and Sen. Ted Cruz has 10% support.

Sen. Rand Paul is at 6% support, and Carly Fiorina and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are at 5% each. No other candidate tops 3% support, and 3% of likely caucus-goers are still undecided.

Quinnipiac polled 574 likely Iowa caucus-goers between October 14-October 20. The margin of error is +/- 3.4 percentage points.
