A new NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll shows Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson pretty much neck and neck in the current race for the GOP White House nomination.
Trump comes in with 21% of those polled with Carson right there at 20% – a virtual dead heat when you take in the margin of error.
Carly Fiorina and Sen. Marco Rubio coming in tied with 11% each on the heels of strong performances at the second GOP debate.
In the race for the Democratic nod, Hillary Clinton (42%) still leads Sen. Bernie Sanders (35%) by 7 points IF you factor in a possible Vice-President Joe Biden (17%) run. Remove Biden from the picture and her support jumps to 53% versus Sanders 38% – a 15 point lead.
