Obama Now Leads Iowa Poll
November 20, 2007, 10:36 AM
It remains a three-person race for Iowa's precinct caucuses, although Obama's lead over Edwards was beyond the margin of sampling error. The poll also asked Iowans whether they're more interested in new direction or experience, with new direction now favored by 55 percent compared to 33 percent who prefer experience.
Barack Obama, 30 percent
Hillary Clinton, 26 percent
John Edwards, 22 percent
Bill Richardson, 11 percent
Among the "new direction" voters, 43 percent favor Obama and 17 percent back Clinton.
Richardson was in fourth place, and no other Democrat received more than five percent support.
The ABC News/Washington Post telephone poll of 500 adults likely to participate in the caucuses was conducted Nov. 14-18. The poll had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
