Trump garners 34 percent support in the Fox News poll released Friday, with Cruz at 20 percent.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) ranks third with 11 percent, followed by retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson at 8 percent. Former Forida Gov. Jeb Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich tie for fifth with 4 percent apiece.

The poll also found that Cruz and Trump are the most popular second choice for likely Republican primary voters. Cruz is the second choice for 22 percent, while Trump is for 13 percent.

The survey found that voters are unconcerned with questions about Cruz’s eligibility for the presidency.

Only 10 percent say the fact that Cruz was born in Canada makes it less likely they'll vote for him, while 88 percent said it would not affect their choice.

And 61 percent say he is natural-born American, with 27 disagreeing.

Cruz and Trump are battling for a lead in the early-voting state of Iowa, just 10 days away from the caucuses.

While Trump has double-digit leads in most national polls, he is ahead of Cruz by just 2.6 percent in Iowa, according to a RealClearPolitics average of polls.
