Well, yet another polling outfit shows the race in Iowa quite a bit closer than yesterday’s poll. Today’s ARG has Romney at 27%, Huckabee 19%, Rudy 16%, McCain 14%, and Thompson 8%. (The same poll shows Thompson polling poorly in SC and NH as well.) Well, which to believe? One clue is that Romney is spending three days in Iowa this week, perhaps a sign he does not see this state as secure quite yet. David Yepsen picks up on the Huckabee momentum. While I may not share his enthusiasm for Huckabee’s candidacy I do think he is shaking up the race there and could do so in South Carolina as well. As for Thompson, this suggests that neither NH nor Iowa are on the “really trying” list but would fourth or fifth place finishes in these states knock him out of the first tier and give rise to the “he’s only a regional candidate” meme?
