Hillary stable in Iowa

The most damaging thing to confront the Hillary campaign over the last month was the perception her numbers had sagged in Iowa. In truth, she'd never been ahead by more than a few points. Rasmussen is one of the most reliable independent pollsters and has conducted a number of recent polls in the state and finds Hillary's numbers virtually unchanged over the last month.
    The latest Rasmussen Reports poll of the Iowa Democratic Caucus finds that Hillary Clinton is supported by 29% of Likely Caucus Participants. That’s up two points from two weeks ago and identical to her level of support a month ago.

    Barack Obama enjoys 26% support in the most recent poll. He was at 25% two weeks ago and 24% a month ago.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone poll finds John Edwards at 22%, down a bit from 24% two weeks ago and from 25% a month ago. Edwards now trails Clinton by seven percentage points. He trailed by three to four points in the earlier Rasmussen Reports surveys.
