Republican Candidates

For the record (few are looking here for news), a CNN poll has Donald Trump on top in Iowa at 22 percent. He is seen as the best one able to handle the economy, best on illegal immigration and terrorism, as having the best chance of winning the general election and, by a wide margin, the candidate most likely to change the way things work in Washington. Apparently many are associating reserve with ineptitude.

Ben Carson is second on the CNN poll, at 14 percent. He has been described as saying that abortion is the number one killer of blacks.
