Top-tier GOP candidates Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul walk a tight-rope in Iowa.
According to a a Public Policy Poll former Speaker Newt Gingrich is in leading Texas Rep. Ron Paul by a single digit — 22 to 21.
The PPP draws similarities between Paul and former Senator Obama in regards to polling numbers: “There are a lot of parallels … he’s doing well with new voters, young voters, and non-Republican voters”
The report also noted:
“Paul’s supporters are considerably more committed to him than Gingrich’s are. 77% of current Paul voters say they’re definitely going to vote for him, compared to only 54% for Gingrich. Romney has much more solid support than Gingrich as well, 67% of his voters saying they’re with him for the long haul. Among only voters who say their mind’s totally made up, 29% support Paul to 21% for Gingrich, 18% for Romney, and 11% for Bachmann.”
The Ron Paul 2012 Campaign has gained an astounding amount of ground over the past months — the libertarian-leaning Republican has seen only an increase of support since his campaign began.
