The Democrat race in Iowa: Neck and neck…and neck

The lefty blogs are buzzing over the latest Lee Enterprises Iowa caucus poll showing a virtual dead heat among the top three Dem candidates:

A new Iowa caucus poll from Lee Enterprises newspapers shows the Democratic race is a virtual three-way tie, with John Edwards rising to tie Barack Obama for the lead and Hillary Clinton rising to just one point behind.

…There is plenty of room for shifts in the final days before the Jan. 3 caucuses, with 19 percent of Democrats and 31 percent of Republicans saying they are likely or very likely to change their minds.

Edwards, a former U.S. senator from North Carolina, has gained 5 points from the Lee Enterprises poll two weeks ago, while Clinton, a U.S. senator from New York, has gained 4 points. Obama, a U.S. senator from Illinois has seen his support drop 4 points. Richardson, the governor of New Mexico, has lost 2 points. The support for Biden, Dodd and Kucinich was unchanged.

Don’t worry, Denny K. The Pizza Hut ad referencing your UFO quip isn’t going to make a dent.

Are you all surprised at Obama’s four-point drop? Will he drag Oprah around for some last-minute vote-scraping? Or perhaps he’ll emulate Hillary and go mute?

As for Silky Pony, he’s ramping up his faux populist rhetoric, lambasting greed, and assailing “special interests”–while benefiting from gobs of special interest funding by a Mellon-backed 527.

Maybe he’ll throw another hypocritical hissy-fit attacking Fox News. That’s always good for a few, stray nutroots votes.
