The poll questioned 906 registered Republicans and has a 3-point margin of error.

In recent weeks, Carson has made significant in-roads on Trump’s dominance in the race. A CBS News/New York Times poll also released Tuesday shows Carson edging out the outspoken billionaire for first place nationwide.

Carson leads Trump, 26 percent to his 22 percent, in to that survey. Carson recently surged past Trump to take the lead in the early-voting state of Iowa. 

Trump has responded by gradually turning up the heat against Carson despite their past warmth on the campaign trail.

“Some of these polls coming out, I don’t quite get it,” he said Tuesday of Carson’s appeal on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
