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.

–“Intel Corp. is poised to unveil its latest line of microchips, which are already receiving glowing reviews.

According to the Wall Street Journal’s web site, “The company’s latest chips, being formally announced Monday…were built with new manufacturing materials. Intel is building transistors in the chips out of a material called hafnium instead of silicon dioxide, a mainstay of the industry since the 1960s.”

The senior vice president and general manage of Intel’s mobility group is heralding the advance as one of the largest in 40 years.

The Reuters web site further elaborates on the new chips. “Known by the project name Penryn (the first family of 45-nanometer chips in the world), the chips hold little in the way of fundamental design advances but are an important step in continuing the industry’s track record of delivering chips that get smaller and faster every two years or so… Penryn is the ‘tick’ in Intel’s ‘tick-tock’ strategy of shrinking an existing chip design to a smaller size, then following up the next year with an all-new blueprint, known as a microarchitecture.”

With these chips, Intel looks to decrease chip size while increasing its speed. They will be sold under Intel’s Xeon and Core 2 brands and will be able to run software up to 15 percent faster.

The Reuters web site also talked about what this will mean for the future of the company. “It cements Intel’s manufacturing lead over rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc (AMD.N: Quote, Profile, Research), which only started making chips on 65 nanometers earlier this year but plans to try to roll out 45 nanometer technology in 2008.””
