The newest numbers from the BEST public pollster in Iowa, Ann Selzer, who conducts the Des Moines Register poll.

Obama: 28 Huckabee: 29
Clinton: 25 Romney: 24
Edwards: 23 Giuliani: 13

** Clinton loses 12 pts among union households; running roughly equal with Obama among women (he leads within the subset margin). But 7 in 10 women are not choosing Clinton.
** Clinton most presidential, knowledgeable and ego-driven
** Obama most principled, likeable
** Huckabee shoots up among self-described born agains
** Romney seen as most presidential

** The margin of error is +/- 4.4%, so Obama technically does not lead outside the margin of error. Huckabee does.
