Post-Debate GOP Presidential Race Polls

Post-Debate Poll (NBC) 
Trump 23% 
Cruz 13% 
Carson 11% 
Fiorina 8% 
Rubio 8% 
Bush 7% 
Walker 7%
Via a Facebook post and confirmed here.  Meanwhile another post-debate poll produces somewhat different results, with Bush polling stronger, and polling Cruz and Fiorina weaker:
Trump leads the Republican field with 32 percent of the vote, up 7 percentage points over last week’s Morning Consult tracking poll. Trump’s nearest GOP rival, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, clocked in at 11 percent.No other Republican contender reaches double digits – retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson sits in third place at 9 percent, followed by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) at 6 percent.
A Reuters-Ipsos poll with a dubious +/- 6.7% margin of error has Trump unchanged at 24%, followed by Bush at 12% (down 5%), and no other candidate with more than 8%.  The Reuters poll shows Fiorina leaping from 1% to 6% support.

Meanwhile, a post-debate poll of Iowa potential caucus-goers by Public Policy Polling found:
Trump taking 19 percent support in Iowa, the first-in-the-nation caucus state.  Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Ben Carson are tied for second place at 12 percent support each, followed by Jeb Bush at 11 percent, businesswoman Carly Fiorina at 10 percent and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 9 percent.
Overall, great news for Democrats, if true.  Republicans are currently doubling down on crazy and that isn't going to help them in the general election.

BTW, it is a good thing that debates influence polls. That is how democracy is supposed to work.
