The latest CBS News/YouGov poll has Trump and Carson tied at 27 points each. But if you dig deeper, it becomes clear Trump has a huge and growing Iowa problem. When Iowa GOP voters were asked if they would be satisfied or dissatisfied if a given candidate became the nominee, 56 percent of Iowa Republicans said they’d be dissatisfied if Trump were the nominee.

Iowans are dissatisfied with a lot of the candidates; candidates whom a majority of Iowans reject include Chris Christie (61 percent), Rand Paul (58 percent), Jeb Bush (57 percent), and John Kasich (53 percent).

By contrast only 20 percent would be dissatisfied with Dr. Carson as the nominee. while 61 percent say they’d be satisfied.

Others with relatively low dissatisfaction rates include Rubio (27 percent), Cruz (30 percent) and Fiorina (32 percent).
