Century of the Common Iowan: New Poll Shows Obama in Third... Among Iowa Republicans

Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan

There was a new poll released yesterday by the University of Iowa. The
poll is interesting to take a look at because it breaks down caucus
goers based on how likely they will attend the caucuses. However, the
most shocking finding in the poll comes from the question about
presidential preference that included candidates from both parties...
'Obama actually finished third as the preferred general election
candidate of registered Republicans, at 6.7 percent, behind Romney
(21.8 percent), and Giuliani (10 percent), but ahead of Thompson (5.2
percent) and McCain (1.8 percent).' Another interesting thing to note
is that the results among the least likely caucus goers in Iowa are
pretty similar to the national poll numbers. From Open Left... 'I am
struck by how similar the "least likely" caucus goers in Iowa seem to
break along roughly the same lines as national polls.'
