New Iowa Poll Indicates Romney, Paul in Tight Race, Santorum Surging

Posted By on Fri, Dec 30, 2011 at 10:14 AM

With the Iowa Caucus just four days away and charges and counter-charges flying about, one of the final polls leading up to the first-in-the-nation presidential contest has former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Congressman Ron Paul running neck-and-neck in Iowa, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum surging, and former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich collapsing.

According to the new NBC News-Marist poll, Romney garnered 23 percent of likely Iowa voters, just ahead of Paul, who drew 21 percent. Santorum followed with 15 percent, Texas Gov. Rick Perry had 14 percent, Gingrich had 13 percent and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann had 6 percent.

A similar poll by NBC-Marist in late November had Gingrich leading the pack with 28 percent.

Another poll by Rasmussen, which was published on Thursday, also had Romney in the lead over Paul, but only by 1 percent. In order, they were followed by Santorum, Gingrich, Perry and Bachmann.
