IN IOWA ALL THAT MATTER IS RELIGION AND ORGANIZATION:

Evangelical Vote Points to Donald Trump's First Drop in Iowa (Maggie Haberman, 10/23/15, NY Times)

It is only a single poll, and it will require other surveys to make clear whether the numbers are trending away from Mr. Trump. But the state's Republican base includes a large number of evangelical voters, a group Mr. Trump has had difficulty courting.

"Here is a reason Trump is not doing as well in Iowa as he is in New Hampshire: New Hampshire is more secular," said the Republican strategist Alex Castellanos. "Carson, the moral outsider, beats Trump, the secular, business outsider."

Neither can withstand scrutiny of the former and Mr. Carson doesn't have the latter.
