WASHINGTON — An NBC News/Marist poll confirmed Friday an earlier survey’s finding that Mitt Romney is the front-runner ahead of Tuesday’s Iowa caucuses in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
Twenty-three percent of likely caucus-goers in the Midwestern state favored the former Massachusetts governor to challenge President Barack Obama in November’s presidential election.
Libertarian congressman Ron Paul was second at 21%, followed by former senator Rick Santorum at 15% and Texas Governor Rick Perry at 14%, the telephone poll of 425 people on Tuesday and Wednesday indicated.
But 41% of likely voters in the survey said they believed Paul, with his libertarian and isolationist messages, would be unacceptable as the Republican nominee. National Post
