    In four days of polling, Romney leads at 24 percent, Paul has 22 percent and Rick Santorum, 15 percent.

    But if the final two days of polling stand alone, the order reshuffles: Santorum elbows out Paul for second.

    “Few saw this bombshell coming,” GOP strategist David Polyansky said. “In an already unpredictable race this is another stunning turn of political fortune.”

    What makes Santorum’s growth spurt particularly striking is his last-second rise: He averaged 10 points after the first two nights of polling, but doubled that during the second two nights. Looking just at the final day of polling, he was just one point down from Romney’s 23 percent on Friday.

    Paul has marched higher in every Iowa Poll, but his momentum may have stalled last week. His support eroded from 29 percent on the first day of polling to 16 percent the last.

    As for the rest of the field, over the four days of polling, Newt Gingrich is at 12 percent, Rick Perry, 11 percent, and Michele Bachmann, 7 percent. Their support remained relatively steady over the four days.

    Intra-state poll from those I know in Iowa have Paul ahead of romney by 1% - santorum in third.
  3. Rick is playing the race card at the last minute.

    We don't have much longer to wait. We'll know in less than 48 hours probably. Then the next round of arguing for the NH vote. :D
