Newsweek Poll Puts Obama Ahead in Iowa

Baltimore Sun's The Swamp reports:

Barack Obama's presidential campaign has been telling people not to pay too much attention to the polls lately, but now they're emailing all their supporters with news of the latest survey.

In Iowa, Obama is actually leading Democratic rivals Hillary Clinton and John Edwards among likely caucus-goers, according to a new Newsweek poll. Obama scores 28 percent in that poll while Clinton gets 24 percent and Edwards has 22 percent.

The overall numbers -- not specifically among voters who say they're "likely" to go to the caucuses -- are more favorable to Clinton. The poll also suggests that Clinton's supporters may be more solidly in her camp than are backers of the other Democrats, with a larger proportion of Clinton voters characterizing their support as "strong."
