According to UsaToday.com Donald Trump appeared to be in command a week ago on the heels of the San Bernardino shooting, but the turn toward Cruz was swift and decisive. A week ago, Trump received 20 first-place votes from our panel and Cruz got three. This week, on the strength of great poll numbers in Iowa, Cruz took 17 first-place votes and Trump took only 9. Marco Rubio got the remaining first-place ballots.

However, the UsaToday experts added to say that Cruz is now better positioned in the critical early-voting states. The other major movement in our Power Rankings this week: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie surges to fourth place, the highest he has ever placed in our survey.
