South Carolina’s Nikki Haley is leading in the polls ahead of the third GOP debate on November 8.
“If you saw the polls today in Iowa, I am now in second place in Iowa … I’ve got one more fella I’ve got to catch up to,” Ms Haley told reporters at a press conference.
Former president Donald Trump led the poll, with 43 per cent of GOP caucusgoers saying they would vote for him, and Ms Haley had the support of 16 per cent, 10 per cent higher than she had in the same poll in August.
Mr Trump said Ms Haley said she would never run against him and called her “bird brain”.
Republican candidates hoping to qualify for the third GOP debate next week are required to receive at least four per cent in two national polls or four per cent in one national poll and four per cent in two early states.
