Everyone knew it had to happen eventually.
The political truce between GOP presidential rivals Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump ended this week, in a combination of leaked closed door barbs and poll numbers that show Cruz pulling within range of and even surpassing Trump in some polls.
New numbers from a Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics poll show Cruz ahead of Trump in Iowa by 10 points. But new national polling from NBC/WSJ shows that while Iowa may be shifting, nationally Trump still remains on top — leading the field with 30 percent. But Cruz’s rise extends to this poll as well — he’s at 24 percent and in second place, with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in third with 21 percent.
