Big news on its own, but even bigger since it was taken before Romney’s second debate win. Considering the fact that Giuliani and McCain are both slipping, and Fred Thompson is failing to gain much more momentum, Romney may poll much higher come the next poll. When 22% are undecided, good debate performances can go a long way. The poll:
Mitt Romney — 19%
Rudy Giuliani — 18%
John McCain — 18%
Fred Thompson — 9%
Close, but it is Romney’s first lead in Iowa – a good sign for his campaign.
