It is what it is. The Iowa Poll. Just floating the turd in the proverbial punch bowl...

Mitt Romney leads Obama 46 percent to 44 percent.

Either way we all lose.

If they have Gingrich in last place, it tells me he is their real threat. I trust nothing this election, nothing or anyone, only my instincts, and the person I have chosen for my vote. I know beyond any doubt that Gingrich can lead us out of this four long year nightmare. Their manipulation of him has been epic, tells me all I need to know.

I don’t believe it either. Obama hasn’t even started. There is a sleeping machine...

I believe it. Remember, Iowa was soaked in a solid month of unanswered Newt-hatred from the Romney campaign, and the caucus results showed that the bumpkins clearly swallowed it down. No reason they should start thinking for themselves now, when the press no longer cares what they think.

“Either way we all lose. “

Yep. Even soros says there’s not much difference. I wonder if he will contribute equally to both campaigns.

I find this poll believable. Despite 0bama winning in 08, I think that was partially due to Iowans being overly nice, and being somewhat sheltered from the "real world". I think many favoring 0bama, were simply out of white guilt.

I think this time around, enough will flip after they have seen the incompetency out of 0bama. One thing that helps 0 is that the economy isn't really that bad here, relative to other areas of the country. The farm business is booming, and we have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.

I have a married couple friends, nice income, Catholic. They both voted for 0 in 08. I asked them why. "Because Bush sucks." I am getting the feeling they won't be repeating the mistake.

Rick Santorum beats Obama 48-44.

Works for me!

I like Newt. He has done a lot of good things for our country. I would be content with him as Rick’s VP. Newt might still turn things around, but it is starting to get rather unlikely. Whether he does or not, the refusal of some of his supporters to face reality is amazing. You would think from some of the comments that Newt has won every primary and caucus and is leading nationally, whereas he has only won one state and is trailing badly now.

Interesting to watch, but sad.

"Readers Digest"? "Condensed Version"....really?

EVERYBODY has a poll nowadays, but mostly they use them to try and frustrate the right so they'll stay home on election day.

It's like when Tokyo Rose used to try and destroy the fighting spirit of the troops back in the big one...it's propaganda to prop up the most dismal failure in United States History...barack obama.

Polls are polls and the election is the election...ignore the MSM and get to work supporting a GOP candidate.

Yeah, really. Lampooning the "Gannett link-only copyright rule". Apparently, my humor eluded you.

Was this a preference poll or an electability poll? If it was an electability poll, I think that makes sense. And yes, the mud effect yet lingers...but is dissipating...

Sad, I agree. It's like telling a little girl that she isn't getting a pony for her birthday and she thinks you're lying to her so she'll be even more surprised when you give her a pony...

No, you're not getting a pony.

LOL Paul wins.

It looks like Newt took one for the team in his battle with Mr. Goldman-Sachs.

I tell people like that that Bush wasn’t running and besides that no matter how bad you think Bush was Obama is vastly worse and anyone with one eye open and half a brain should have seen that, if you thought then or now that Obama is an improvement over Bush you are an idiot.
