DMR Poll shows (another) statistical dead heat

The just-releated Des Moines Register Iowa Poll shows a statistical dead heat between Herman Cain at 23 percent and Mitt Romney at 22 percent.  The poll has a margin of error of +/- 4.9 percent.

Ron Paul has secured the third spot in the poll with 12 percent and Michele Bachmann, who was in the statistical dead heat position with Romney early this summer in the paper’s June poll, has fallen back to fourth place, with 8 percent support in this poll, which was taken Oct. 23-26.  Newt Gingrich & Rick Perry are tied for fifth.  Rick Santorum — the candidate who has spent the most time in Iowa — was in seventh, with five percent. Jon Huntsman — the candidate who has spent the least time here (his only visit was in August to participate in the FOX News debate in Ames) — got 1 percent.
