HawkeyeGOP: Rudy, Rudy, Rudy!

Excerpted from this post at HawkeyeGOP

According to the Des Moines Register, a recent Victory Enterprises poll shows Rudy Giuliani as the clear leader among likely caucus goers. This result is especially interesting in that Giuliani is a pro-choice candidate while the common wisdom says that Republican caucus goers in Iowa are largely pro-life.

This should alarm Iowa social conservatives, like Steve Scheffler's Iowa Christian Alliance, who are already concerned about the dearth of first-tier candidates with unequivocal pro-life records. The prominence of pro-choice candidates like McCain, Giuliani and Pataki there is cause for concern. Added to uncertainty about Romney's position, pro-life Republicans in Iowa may be faced with difficult choices.
