Poll: Scott Walker Now Leads By Double Digits In Iowa



Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) sits atop the GOP field in Iowa, according to a pair of Iowa presidential polls released Tuesday.

Walker took 21 percent of voters in a survey from the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, a 1-percentage-point lead over Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

That ranking also held in a Loras College poll, although about twice as many voters in that poll were undecided. Walker led the field with 12.6 percent, followed by 10 percent for Rubio and 9.6 percent for Bush. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who won the state’s 2008 caucuses and is expected to announce his bid next week, took fourth with 8.6 percent.

In the PPP survey, the Wisconsin governor is leading both the subset of voters that are calling for the most electable candidate, as well as those who want the most conservative candidate. Those two ideologies have split the Republican electorate at times, but both seem to be coalescing around Walker for the time being, according to both polls.
