Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has overtaken businessman Donald Trump in the latest poll as the top pick of Republican primary voters to be the party’s presidential nominee. A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds Carson ahead of Trump 29% to 23%.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz rank third and fourth as the top pick of 11% and 10% of Republican primary voters, respectively after strong performances in last week’s debate.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is at 8% with no other Republican garners more than 3% support.

November has two GOP debates scheduled: November 10 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and again on November 15 in Nevada.

The rest of the field: 3%: Carly Fiorina, Chris Christie, John Kasich, Mike Huckabee. Rand Paul is at 2% and the following list didn’t register a full percentage point: Bobby Jindal, Lindsey Graham, Rick Santorum and Jim Gilmore.

The Journal/NBC News survey of 400 Republican primary voters, conducted Oct. 25-29 with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.

A CBS/New York Times poll released last week also found Carson ahead of Trump with Trump ahead in recent polls in Iowa and New Hampshire, albeit by a very small margin.
