The National Journal asked top GOP leaders in D.C. who they prefer to win Iowa: Donald Trump or Ted Cruz? The answer?

Donald J. Trump:

It’s the $64,000 question for establishment-minded Republicans: Would they rather see Ted Cruz or Donald Trump win the Iowa caucuses, assuming none of the more moderate candidates prevail?

In an informal survey of senior GOP strategists, the clear winner was Trump. Their arguments were reasoned but underscored: a) how they’re still underestimating Trump; and b) how much they personally hate Cruz to the point where emotion is trumping strategy.

H/T: Erick Erickson.
