Cain, Romney Lead in Iowa

A new Des Moines Register Iowa poll shows Herman Cain and Mitt Romney leading the GOP presidential race.

Cain edges Romney, 23% to 22%, with Ron Paul at 12%, Michele Bachmann at 8%, Newt Gingrich at 7%, Rick Perry at 7%, Rick Santorum at 5% and Jon Huntsman at 1%.

Cain has surged 13 points since the first Iowa Poll of the caucus cycle, conducted in late June. His rise has come despite spending little time in Iowa recently, campaigning just once in the state since the August 13 Iowa straw poll.

The Iowa caucuses are scheduled for January 3.
