Gingrich Holds Solid Lead in Iowa

The latest Public Policy Polling survey in Iowa finds Newt Gingrich leading the Republican presidential field with 27%, followed by Ron Paul at 18%, Mitt Romney at 16%, Michele Bachmann at 13%, Rick Perry at 9%, Rick Santorum at 6% and Jon Huntsman at 4%.

Key finding: Gingrich has gained 19% since early October while Paul is up 8% and Bachmann is up 5%. Romney has dropped 6% since then with the other candidates mostly standing in place.

These results mirror the results of the Des Moines Register and NBC News-Marist polls released over the weekend.

New Iowa polls from ABC News-Washington Post and CBS News-New York Times are scheduled to be released in the morning.
