Edwards Pulls To Three-Way Tie In Iowa
December 20, 2007, 10:20 AM
The Democratic race is a virtual three-way tie among Clinton, Obama and Edwards. Clinton is most trusted to handle the issues Iowa Democrats name as their top three: Iraq, health care and the economy. Clinton leads among women, Obama is tops with younger voters, and Edwards' best groups include union members.
Among Republicans, the economy is named as the key issue affecting their choice, and Romney leads Huckabee by 11 percentage points as most trusted to handle it. The only issue Huckabee is most trusted on is abortion, reflecting his strong support from evangelicals. Romney has a 10-point lead over Huckabee among non-evangelical voters.
The CNN-Opinion Research Corp. poll was conducted Dec. 14-18. It included telephone interviews with 359 Republicans likely to vote in the Iowa caucuses, with a margin of sampling error of plus or minus five percentage points; and 543 likely Democratic voters, with a margin of sampling error of plus or minus four points.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, 30 percent
Barack Obama, 28 percent
John Edwards, 26 percent
Bill Richardson, 7 percent
Mike Huckabee, 33 percent
Mitt Romney, 25 percent
Rudy Giuliani, 11 percent
John McCain, 9 percent
Fred Thompson, 9 percent
Ron Paul, 6 percent
