EDWARDS, GIULIANI LEAD LATEST IOWA POLL
Democrat John Edwards and Republican Rudy Giuliani sit atop their respective parties in an Iowa presidential preference poll released last night by Strategic Vision.
Edwards tops the Democrats at 25%, while Barack Obama is second at 17%, favorite-son Tom Vilsack is third at 16% and Hillary Clinton rounds out the top tier at 15%. No one else is even close to double digits.
On the GOP side, Giuliani leads John McCain 25% to 21%. Newt Gingrich is next at 13%, followed by Mitt Romney at 8% and Chuck Hagel at 7%.
Clinton will be in Des Moines this weekend - her first trip to the state in quite some time.
Des Moines Register political columnist David Yepsen has some advice for the New York Senator - come by a little more often and expect to do a lot of one-on-one campaigning.
