A Des Moines Register poll of likely Iowa Caucus-goers suggests the candidates who are leading in national polls are not leading here. Among the Republicans, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney topped the Des Moines Register’s "Iowa Poll" with 30 percent, followed by Arizona Senator John McCain at 18 percent and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani with 17 percent. None of the other GOP candidates registered above 10 percent.
Among the Democrats, former North Carolina Senator John Edwards has the support of 29 percent of the folks polled by the Des Moines Register. Illinois Senator Barack Obama had 23 percent and New York Senator Hillary Clinton had 21 percent. New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson was fourth at 10 percent. The Register also asked voters to name their top concern. Terrorism was the top concern among Republicans. Democrats said their top concern was Iraq.
