Bleeding Heartland: Richardson Moves Ahead of Obama in Iowa

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

The Richardson campaign sent an email out this afternoon with this
surprising bit of information from internal polling they have doneā€¦
The Governor has rocketed up 10% among likely Iowa caucus goers in
just three months, and now stands at 13%. No other Democratic
candidate has made gains anywhere close to that over the same time
period. In fact, amongst the likeliest caucus goers (those who
attended the 2004 caucuses, voted in the 2006 primary and are definite
to attend next year's caucus) the Governor has overtaken Senator Obama
for 3rd place. Richardson has been moving for the past few months in
Iowa. It just shows what a couple million dollar of good, creative TV
ads can do. What is surprising about this, however, is that Obama's
numbers are falling in Iowa. He has been traveling the state, doing
smaller events, yet he isn't moving up in the polls. The Richardson
campaign is also saying they will outraise John Edwards this quarter.
If they do and if they are ahead of Obama in Iowa, I think it would
mark that Richardson has officially entered the 2nd-tier and is
knocking on the door of first-tier status.
