Two polls this week found Donald Trump trailing Ben Carson in Iowa, site of the first contest in the 2016 race. The second survey, out Friday, showed Carson with a solid 9-point lead, 28 percent to 19 percent, over Trump. An earlier Quinnipiac poll showed Carson leading Trump in Iowa by 8 points.
In typical style, the braggadocious billionaire dismissed the results of the Quinnipiac poll in interviews and on Twitter, where he retweeted a supporter's comments saying "#BenCarson is now leading in the #polls in #Iowa. Too much #Monsanto in the #corn creates issues in the brain?"
