Newt Gingrich in the lead in Iowa over GOP primary presidential candidates in a Des Moines Register poll of likely GOP caucusgoers:
Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich has carved out a clear lead in what’s become a three-candidate race in Iowa, according to The Des Moines Register’s new Iowa Poll.
Texas Rep. Ron Paul has risen into second place, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has slid to third with just over a month before the Iowa caucuses kick off voting in the presidential nominating process.
Gingrich has support from 25 percent of likely Republican caucusgoers, Paul is at 18 percent and Romney at 16 percent.
Look for Herman Cain’s 8% to now move to other candidates now that Cain has has left the race. More from Hot Air, including the forcast that most of Cain’s support will break for Newt and push his support up to 30%.
