Paul maintains his lead - Public Policy Polling

Quote:
The last week and a half has brought little change in the standings for the Iowa Republican caucus: Ron Paul continues to lead Mitt Romney by a modest margin, 24-20. Newt Gingrich is in 3rd at 13% followed by Michele Bachmann at 11%, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum at 10%, Jon Huntsman at 4%, and Buddy Roemer at 2%.
Full results here.

Quote:
Iowa Republicans support Romney over Paul 22-20. But Dems/indys planning to vote prefer Paul 39-12
Quote:
Among voters whose minds are totally made up Paul's lead over Romney expands to 28-21
Quote:
Romney up 34-12 with seniors...but Paul up 35-11 with voters under 45
Quote:
Remarkable parallel between Paul 2012 and Obama 2008 in Iowa- changing the electorate to pull an upset
Quote:
Gingrich in Iowa over the last month: 27% to 22% to 14% to 13%. Now quite unpopular at 37/54 fav
Quote:
Romney winning the Fox News primary in Iowa but trails Paul 38-13 among voters who don't watch it
Quote:
Romney's big problem continues to be inability to hold onto 2008 voters...only 48% supporting him again
Quote:
Romney's favorability numbers below water in Iowa now at 44/47, down 12 pts compared to last week
Quote:
Emerging sense in Iowa that Paul can/will win- 29% think he's likely winner, 15% say Romney
Quote:
26% of Iowa voters think Paul has run strongest campaign in the state, only 5% say that of Romney
Quote:
Incredibly fragmented Evangelical vote in Iowa- 6 candidates between 12-21%. Lessens its influence
The smears are only helping.

I don't know why people keep dismissing Paul as if he's done after January. This is going to be a Romney vs Paul race through March.

There is one problem for Ron Paul with this...the Iowa Causus only admits Republicans.

I agree with others, and I am also concern with Ron Paul winning the Iowa caucus. The published letters of his are disturbing, and with what Gingrich pointed out in a CNN interview ( Ron Pauls publishing), his campaign could be a disaster for our society.

There has not been any reporting of a large number of new Republicans in Iowa up to this point. How many new Republican voters do you think are going to turn out on election day to register? Sounds far fetched to me.

The way Iowa is set up, why waste the time, when you can do it on the spot.
