Wall Street Journal reporter, Laura Meckler Reports:

“A new poll of Iowa Republicans released yesterday by Rasmussen Reports Inc., a polling firm, put Messrs. Huckabee and Romney neck and neck, with 28% favoring Mr. Huckabee and 25% favoring Mr. Romney. Mr. Giuliani, the national front-runner, is seen as too socially liberal for Iowans and received 12% support in the poll. Former Sen. Fred Thompson had 11% support and other candidates were in the single digits.

This is the first major Iowa poll since July that hasn’t shown Mr. Romney in the lead, according to Real Clear Politics, a Web site that tracks voter surveys. The poll of 839 likely Republican caucus-goers had a margin of error of 3.5%.

Mr. Huckabee’s surge is remarkable given how much he has been outspent. Mr. Romney has spent at least $3.5 million on television ads that have been running since February, according to independent estimates. Mr. Huckabee went on the air for the first time last week.”

…”His campaign staff is growing but still tiny by presidential standards, with just 14 paid workers and a handful of full-time volunteers. Field directors who have carved up the state are still working to recruit county chairs and precinct captains. Boone County, north of Des Moines, has 16 precincts, but so far just four have captains for Mr. Huckabee.
