In its latest Iowa poll, American Research Group
reports that dark horse candidate Ron Paul has roared to a statistical dead heat with Rudi Giuliani, one of the front-runner GOP candidates.
Paul jumped 150% ahead from 4% to 10%, which, with a 4% margin of error for the poll, put him in a statistical dead heat with Rudi Giuliani, who pulled 14% in the poll.
Paul, technically, with that 4% margin of error was within range of John McCain, as well, who pulled 17% in the poll.
Mitt Romney pulled 21% and Mike Huckabee pulled 23%.
The GOP presidential primary in Iowa is seeing jumps and drops in polls that are all over the place. With Iowa's unique caucus system, Ron Paul's incredibly passionate supporters may make the difference for Paul, giving him a showing that catapults him into New Hampshire with a bump that could force the mainstream media to stop treating him like a kook and start treating him like a serious contender-- exactly as they've done with Mike Huckabee.
