Iowa Surge: Obama-Romney Tied; Romney Gains Seven Points

Proving Mitt Romney’s momentum in the swing states is real, a new American Research Group (ARG) poll found Romney and President Obama tied at 48% in Iowa in a D+1 poll. 

Last month, before Romney dominated Obama in their first presidential debate, Obama led by 7 points in the ARG poll of Iowa, a state Obama won by nearly 10 points in 2008.

Romney leads by 4 points among independents in the new poll, which surveyed 600 likely voters October 11-14 and has a margin of error of +/- 3.5%.

Obama leads in the RCP average in Iowa by 2.7 points, but the momentum is swinging to Romney, and this poll is another example of that.
