The Texas lawmaker had the support of 24 percent of those surveyed,
followed by Mitt Romney at 18 percent,
Rick Perry at 16 percent,
Gingrich at 13 percent,
Michele Bachmann at 10 percent,
Jon Huntsman at 4 percent,
and Rick Santorum at 3 percent.
Gingrich led the field with 27 percent in the same poll one week ago.
how did Huntsman get 3%... :? :shock: :???:
This is the second poll released on Monday to show that Gingrich’s support in Iowa has evaporated.
According to a Public Policy Poll, Gingrich fell from first place to third place. Paul leads that poll by a margin of 23 percent to 20 percent over Romney. Gingrich polled at 14 percent in Iowa, according to PPP, down from 27 percent only two weeks ago.
Gingrich has also been pounded in the national polls over the last two weeks.
Since Gingrich’s surprising rise in the polls, he’s become the focus of attack ads from his GOP rivals, who have also slammed him in debates over his personal life — Gingrich has been married three times — and over his ties to government-backed mortgage giant Freddie Mac.
in most years I would say the large delegate liberal states would erode Pauls' lead.. but with the proportional states and the moving of some liberal states to late it is going to be an interesting years and more will depend on who drops out and who their supporters change to then the early state wins..
in the past several liberal states often voted before large conservative states giving the moderate the edge.. (more the reason Bush or McCain won then the conservative voters will)
I would personally like to see the states that are proportionally more conservative get to vote first.. but the party elites would have a fit..
