Iowa poll: Obama, Huckabee lead

The final Des Moines Register poll is out. Republicans:

  • Mike Huckabee -- 32 percent
  • Mitt Romney -- 26
  • John McCain -- 13
  • Ron Paul -- 9
  • Fred Thompson -- 9
  • Rudy Giuliani -- 5

Democrats:

  • Barack Obama -- 32 percent
  • Hillary Clinton -- 25
  • John Edwards -- 24
  • Bill Richardson -- 6
  • Joe Biden -- 4
  • Chris Dodd -- 2

More on the poll here and here.

UPDATE: Comparing the results with the last Register poll, conducted at the end of November, the biggest shifts in support are:

  • Giuliani -8 points
  • McCain +6

Huckabee (+3) and Romney (+2) are in about the same relative position as they were a month ago. Obama (+4) improved his relative standing compared with Edwards (+1) and Clinton (unchanged), but these shifts could all be a function of the error margins (+/-4.4 points in November, +/-3.5 points now).
