Townhall | January 1, 2008 | Hugh Hewitt
That's CNN's latest Iowa poll. Details:
The battle for the GOP presidential nomination is also tied at the top. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has the backing of 31 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers, while 28 percent support former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Taking into account the survey's sampling error of 5 percentage points in the GOP race, it's a statistical dead heat between Romney and Huckabee.
Former Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee places third in the poll at 13 percent with Sen. John McCain of Arizona 3 points back. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is at 8 percent, as is Rep. Ron Paul of Texas.
