Gingrich Implodes in Iowa

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Iowa finds Ron Paul has taken the lead in the GOP presidential race with 23%, followed by Mitt Romney at 20%, Newt Gingrich at 14%, Rick Santorum at 10%, Michele Bachmann at 10%, Rick Perry at 10% and Jon Huntsman at 4%.

Key findings: "Gingrich has now seen a big drop in his Iowa standing two weeks in a row. His share of the vote has gone from 27% to 22% to 14%. And there's been a large drop in his personal favorability numbers as well from +31 (62/31) to +12 (52/40) to now -1 (46/47). Negative ads over the last few weeks have really chipped away at Gingrich's image as being a strong conservative -- now only 36% of voters believe that he has 'strong principles,' while 43% think he does not."
