The latest polling from Rasmussen Reports:
[A] national telephone survey of likely Iowa Republican caucus-goers shows Gingrich with 32% followed by former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at 19%. Georgia businessman Herman Cain, who led in Iowa last month, drops to third with 13% of the vote. Texas Congressman Ron Paul draws 10% of the vote in Iowa, while Texas Governor Rick Perry and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann each grab six percent (6%).
In re which, two questions:
1) Can this last?
2) Does it matter? (In Iowa, Mike Murphy argued pretty compellingly on this week’s podcast, Mitt Romney need only finish ahead of Rick Perry.)
