GOP front-runner Donald Trump has bumped Ted Cruz from the lead in Iowa just a month before the first-in-the-nation caucuses, according to a new online poll.

{mosads}Trump, with 39 percent, has a 5-point lead among likely Republican caucus-goers over Cruz, a CBS News “Battleground Tracker” poll released Sunday morning shows. Marco Rubio is in third place, with 13 percent.

Pollsters found that Trump cut into Cruz’s support among Tea Partiers and evangelicals in Iowa, CBS said.

The New Hampshire race is unchanged, according to the new poll, with Trump holding a wide lead over Cruz and Rubio. John Kasich is now in fourth place, however, replacing Gov. Chris Christie.

Trump also still holds a double-digit lead in South Carolina, CBS found.

The online polling firm YouGov conducted the poll for CBS. It has a 7.2 percent margin of error in Iowa, 6.8 percent margin of error in New Hampshire and 5.7 percent margin of error in South Carolina.
