donald trump may be the front-runner, but he's likely in for a fight with ted cruz. dianne gallagher is here with a preview. heading into tonight's republican debate, donald trump has a huge lead, at least in the national polls. he has crossed the 40-percent mark in a national poll from monmouth university. that's more than the next three competitors combined. the polling began last thursday, just days after trump announced his plan to temporarily ban muslims from entering the u-s. it's a move that may have gotten backlash, but as we've seen with trump before, that just strengthens his support. take a look at this poll from abc news, suggesting nearly 60-percent of republicans back the proposal. it's no surprise to the billionaire businessman. (donald trump/(r) presidential candidate) "i have many friends that are muslims, and i will tell you, they are so happy that i did this." coming up fast on trump is texas senator ted cruz. a pair of polls shows him leading trump among iowa republicans. (rep steve king/(r) iowa) "i would say that they're not
voters, the primary voters, and the iowa caucus-goers, so what matters in this, it's about the nomination." if cruz does get the nomination, many critics say he's too conservative to win in the general election. (jeffrey toobin/legal analyst) "he is someone who believes, to the core of his being, that republicans fail when they move to the center." meanwhile, the rest of contenders will use the debate stage to try to win back some of their lost momentum. and former v-p candidate sarah palin is weighing in on tonight's debate. she spoke with c-n-n's jake tapper at a "politics on tap" event at the double barrel roadhouse in las vegas. she doesn't plan to endorse any time soon, but said donald trump and ted cruz are win-win options. ((sarah palin/ fmr. alaska governor) "what a nice problem to have it came down to cruz and trump. what a good problem for voters to have, because we know that, as you say, they are both strong and very decisive and someone who would take the initiative.
