Romney Leads in Iowa

A new We Ask America poll in Iowa shows Mitt Romney leading the GOP field with 24%, followed by Rick Santorum at 17%, Ron Paul at 14%, Newt Gingrich at 13%, Michele Bachman at 12%, Rick Perry at 10% and Jon Huntsman at 4%.

"While many in the media seem to be focusing on the move up the food chain by former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum and the falling numbers for the last flavor-of-the-day Ron Paul, Romney seems finally to be breaking through as Iowa Republicans get closer to Caucus Day. Perhaps more important is the fact that 39% of all poll participants believe that Romney will ultimately be the flag carrier for the GOP in the fall."
