CNN Poll: Santorum Surges To Third In Iowa

The fall of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich in Iowa has created an all out fight for the state between former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX). A new CNN poll shows Romney leading the state by three points with 25 percent of likely Iowa GOP caucus-goers to Paul’s 22 percent.

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who has campaigned in the state for months only to see little traction in public polls, surged to third place in the CNN numbers with 16 percent. Gingrich follows with 14, Texas Gov. Rick Perry with 11, and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) with nine. Former Ambassador and Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman sees one percent.
