Dang. Looks like Newtmentum has picked up a lot of steam:
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Iowa Republican caucus-goers shows Gingrich with 32% followed by former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at 19%. Georgia businessman Herman Cain, who led in Iowa last month, drops to third with 13% of the vote. Texas Congressman Ron Paul draws 10% of the vote in Iowa, while Texas Governor Rick Perry and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann each grab six percent (6%).
As most of us suspected, Cain is down quite a bit and Perry, for some reason, just can’t get out of the hole in Iowa even though he is spending a large amount of time there. I feel like I’m being “backed into” my candidate. I really want a strong conservative to win and while Newt has had his problems, at this point he’s looking like the one that people want. At least in Iowa.
