According to a new poll by Wisconsin Public Radio, Dr. Ben Carson is leading in the Badger State with 20 percent support, with Trump and Sen. Marco Rubio tied for second at 18 percent.

Carson, the former neurosurgeon, polls the best when pitted one-on-one against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders, who are the front-runners for the Democratic nomination.

Following up the trio atop the GOP field are Sen. Ted Cruz with 10 percent support, and Carly Fiorina, who draws 8 percent backing.
