NBC Poll: Mitt Romney, Ron Paul Nearly Even In Iowa
KHQ.COM - Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul are running neck-and-neck in Iowa, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum is surging and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich collapsing just four days before the state's Jan. 3 caucuses, according to a new NBC News-Marist poll.
Romney drew the support of 23 percent of likely caucus-goers in Iowa – identified based on interest, chance of voting and past participation – ahead of Paul, at 21 percent.
They are followed by Santorum at 15 percent, Texas Gov. Rick Perry at 14 percent, Gingrich at 13 percent and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann at 6 percent.
The poll numbers, which are similar to those published in a recent CNN/Time survey,
represent a reversal of fortune for Gingrich, as well as an improvement
for Santorum and (to a lesser extent) Perry. The NBC-Marist poll
conducted in late November had Gingrich in the lead among likely
caucus-goers at 28 percent, Romney and Paul tied at 19 percent, Perry at
10 percent, Bachmann at 7 percent and Santorum at 6 percent. click here to read more
