In Iowa, Bachmann, Romney Lead



With less than a week away from the Ames Straw Poll, a new poll shows Michele Bachmann leading in Iowa with 22 percent support among likely caucus goers.

Mitt Romney is in second with 21 percent, according to the Rasmussen Reports poll. He’s followed by Ron Paul (16 percent), Rick Perry (12 percent), Tim Pawlenty (11 percent), Newt Gingrich (5 percent), Herman Cain (4 percent), and Jon Huntsman (2 percent).

But the race remains fluid: only 28 percent of caucus goers are sure they won’t switch to another candidate at some point before the caucuses.
