Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney enjoy an early advantage among likely Iowa caucus-goers, a poll of Iowa Republicans found Wednesday.
Huckabee would win the Iowa caucuses and Romney would place second, if caucuses including all the potential Republican presidential candidates in the contest were held today, according to a Neighborhood Research survey released Wednesday.
Romney and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (Ga.), meanwhile, would have an edge in a narrower field of candidates, the poll found.
Neighborhood Research completed 319 surveys of Iowa Republicans who said their chances of participating in the 2012 GOP caucus were “definite” or “very likely.” The theoretical margin of error is +/- 5.5% in 95% of cases.The full story is here.
