Gingrich Holds Lead in Iowa, Romney Slips

The new Des Moines Register Iowa Poll shows Newt Gingrich has "carved out a clear lead" in the GOP presidential race with 25%, followed by Ron Paul at 18% and Mitt Romney at 16%.

The rest of the field: Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain at 8%, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum at 6% and Jon Huntsman at 2%.

One notable finding: "The results show Gingrich's ascendancy has the potential to grow, pollster J. Ann Selzer said. More respondents choose Gingrich as their second choice than any other candidate. Together, 43% of likely caucusgoers pick him as first or second."
