Poll Shows Candidates In Dead Heat

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - The latest poll of Iowa's likely Republican caucus-goers provides more evidence of a race headed toward a photo finish, with Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and a surging Rick Santorum running within two percentage points of each other.

The automated poll conducted by the Democratic Party-affiliated firm Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows Ron Paul at 20 percent, Mitt Romney at 19 percent and Rick Santorum at 18 percent on a survey for which PPP reports a margin of error for each candidate of +/- 2.7 percent. Running farther back are Newt Gingrich at 14 percent, Rick Perry at 10 percent, Michele Bachmann at 8 percent, Jon Huntsman at 4 percent and Buddy Roemer at 2 percent. PPP interviewed 1,340 likely Republican caucus goers on December 31 and January 1.

Like other recent polls, PPP shows strong momentum for Rick Santorum, who gained 8 percentage points in the last week. PPP also finds evidence that Santorum still has room to grow: His personal rating -- 60 percent favorable, 30 percent unfavorable -- currently stands as the strongest of the field, and voters choosing other candidates pick Santorum most often as their second choice (14 percent choose Santorum as their second choice versus 11 percent for Romney and 8 percent for Paul).

PPP's results and trends are mostly consistent with those on a half-dozen other polls released in the last week. HuffPost Pollster's chart, based on all public polls in Iowa, currently shows Mitt Romney leading with 22.5 percent, Ron Paul in second but fading slightly to 19.1 percent, Rick Santorum rising fast to 17.1 percent, and Newt Gingrich still falling and now at 12.9 percent. click here to read more
