In Iowa, at least. Via Jonathan Martin, I see this fresh University of Iowa poll showing gains for Romney in the Hawkeye state. Among likely caucus goers, McCain is at 21 percent, Rudy is at 20 percent, and Romney is at 17 percent. For a long time I have been skeptical of the Romney hype because none of it has translated into support in the polls. Here we have a poll in an important state where Romney has a strong organization and has put a lot of effort, and he’s clearly in the top three. This doesn’t change my overall skepticism of the Romney candidacy, but it is a data point that bolsters the case of those predicting a Romney surge once people get to know him and start paying more attention. At the Corner, Kathryn Jean Lopez is giddy: “that’s MoMITTum. There may be more where that came from.”
