A new national poll shows that no candidate has emerged as the front-runner among the Republican presidential candidates, but retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson holds a narrow lead at the head of the pack.
Monmouth University’s national survey released Monday shows Carson receiving support from 11 percent of Republican voters, followed by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at 10 percent, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tied at 9 percent.
Patrick Murray, director of Monmouth’s polling institute, noted that the results fail to show a top tier, much less a clear frontrunner.
Carson and Rubio gained the most ground — four percentage points — since Monmouth’s last poll in April, while Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, and Bush lost the most.
