Cain, Romney finish at top of Des Moines Register poll

Font Size:

Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain has taken the lead in the race to win the Iowa Caucuses, according to a Des Moines Register poll published Saturday.

Cain finished with 23 percent, narrowly beating former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney who finished with 22 percent. The two are essentially tied however, as Cain’s one point lead falls within the poll’s +/-4.9 percentage point margin of error.

Cain’s finish shows a significant gain of support in Iowa, as he scored just 10 percent in the Register’s first poll held in June. Romney’s support relatively stayed the same.
