Poll: Cain and Romney tied in Iowa

Can you feel the Cain-mentum?

Via the Des Moines Register:

Cain has surged 13 percentage points since the first Iowa Poll of the caucus cycle, conducted in late June. His rise has come despite spending little time in Iowa recently, campaigning here just once since the Aug. 13 Iowa straw poll, where he placed fifth.

Likewise, Romney has campaigned in Iowa just three times this year, but he retains a core network of supporters from his near-constant presence in the state during his first presidential bid four years ago.

Apparently the less time GOP actually candidates spend in Iowa, the more Iowans like them.
