Billionaire Businessman Donald Trump has widened his lead in the race for the republican nomination for President of the United States.

The latest numbers come with just sixty days until the Iowa Caucuses.

The poll’s analysis has bad news for Retired Pediatric Neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who one month ago was essentially tied with Trump.

Carson now sits at number three in the nationwide poll, with 16-percent. That’s down 7-percentage points from a month ago.

The only candidates to place at 5-percent or higher are Trump, Carson, Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz and Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. All other contenders are currently bottom-feeding for a small fraction for votes in the hope of re-igniting their respective campaigns, which at this point in the race is bleak.
