A new post-debate Insider Advantage poll of likely Georgia primary voters finds Donald Trump leading with 33 percent and Sen. Ted Cruz closing to within 10 points of the Donald with 23 percent. All the other candidates were in single digits:

  • Trump: 33%
  • Cruz: 23%
  • Rubio: 8%
  • Bush: 7%
  • Carson: 7%
  • Christie: 4%
  • Fiorina: 4%
  • Kasich: 4%
  • Paul: 4%
  • Huckabee: 3%
  • Santorum: 0%
  • Undecided: 3%

According to analysis by Insider Advantage Founder Matt Towery, the debates continue to have an impact on voters. Of those who watched the Fox Business Network debate, 35 percent said Trump won the debate and  20% said Cruz won the contest. The survey was conducted Sunday, January 17, 2016 and has a margin of error of 3.5%.

This a big move by Cruz. Before this poll the Real Clear Politics Average for the Georgia Republican Presidential Primary had Trump leading Cruz by 23 points. The Georgia primary is one of 12 to be held on March 1.
