Nikki Haley has surpassed Ron DeSantis to grab the lead in a new poll in Iowa; both candidates are trailing Trump.

"WASHINGTON," the There are only a few days left until the Iowa caucuses, and a new survey reveals that Nikki Haley is currently leading Ron DeSantis in the state of Iowa.

However, a Suffolk University poll of 500 prospective Republican caucusgoers on Jan. 6-10 showed the former South Carolina and Florida governors trailing Donald Trump. The Suffolk survey shows 54% of people choose the former president, who has led the race.

A survey conducted at the same time revealed that twenty percent of respondents indicated that they would back Haley, thirteen percent would back DeSantis, and six percent would back businessman Vivek Ramaswamy.

According to the study, Haley is doing quite well with independents who lean toward the moderate and liberal sides of the political spectrum, with 42% of support, whereas Trump only received 31%.

Several surveys have showed that DeSantis and Haley are competing with one another for the second place spot in Iowa. In some cases, the governor of Florida has been selected as the winner over Haley, while in other cases, both candidates have been tied for second place behind Trump.

Haley has also gained ground in New Hampshire, the first primary state. The Saint Anselm College Survey Center said Thursday that 31% of prospective Republican primary voters would support her and 45% Trump.

However, Hillary must still work hard to get Trump's Republican nomination. With Chris Christie out of the race, Haley may gain support, according to some observers.
