UIowa Poll shows Clinton and Obama leading most of the Republicans Among Republicans

 Clinton and Obama leading most of the Republicans, From Iowa Republicans

A new University of Iowa poll shows "Don't Know" leading Iowa Republicans with 35 percent.  Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is in first place among actual candidates with 22 percent, followed by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani at 10 percent.  Arizona Senator John McCain, a one-time front-runner, is at 2 percent.  Even Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton have more support from Iowa Republicans.
"Republicans appear to be punishing both Giuliani and McCain for their unwillingness to compete in the Aug. 11 Straw Poll," said political science professor David Redlawsk in a press release announcing the results.  Complete results here.
"For Giuliani I don't think the game's over, though he has dropped a lot and is well behind Romney," Redlawsk told Iowa Independent. "For McCain it is a different story -- I am fairly confident he's done in Iowa.  Iowa Republicans never really liked him very much, and now they have more reason to go elsewhere. But for any Republican who isn't Romney, it is currently an uphill road."
