Monmouth University poll released Monday showed the real-estate magnate garnering his highest support yet, 27 percentage points ahead of his nearest competitor, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Trump led Cruz 41-14 percent, Jeb Bush’s tally just 3 percent, the former Florida governor is faring only marginally better in state-by-state polls.

Bush enters Tuesday night’s GOP primary debate in fifth place in many national polls, a drop that began in July, only a month after Bush formally launched his candidacy.

The CNN/ORC poll which found Trump ahead in Iowa is the oldest in the Iowa polls, with interviews conducted between November 28 and December 6.
