Romney’s Iowa Surge
by

Marc Ambinder reports:

In an internal poll, ex-MA Gov. Mitt Romney holds a whopping 17 point lead over the rest of the Republican field, further evidence to Romney’s senior staff that his organizational prowess and early support in Iowa scared challengers John McCain and Rudy Giuliani away.

The poll, conducted by Romney’s pollster and distributed to top campaign officials last week, shows Romney with 29 percent, followed by Giuliani and “Undecided” with 12 percent each. Fred Thompson receives 10 percent in Romney’s poll. McCain receives 9 percent.

This is more incremental evidence that Romney’s strategy of focusing in on the early states is starting to reap dividends, and it reinforces the view among Romney boosters that once people get to know him better, they like what they see. I remain bearish on his long term prospects, especially with Fred Thompson entering in the race, but just thought it would be worthwhile to pass on information that contradicts my view point.
