The latest Iowa Poll shows Herman Cain and Mitt Romney in a dead heat among Republicans likely to vote in January’s nominating caucuses there. Back among the also-rans – and significantly so – is Michele Bachmann, an Iowa native who’s campaigned heavily in the state and is counting on it to propel her forward during the primary season.

Cain and Romney were statistically tied among the 400 likely Republican caucus goers interviewed by phone with 23 percent and 22 percent of the vote respectively and a margin of error just under 5 percent.

Ron Paul came in third with 12 percent with the rest of the candidates in single digits: Bachmann 8 percent, Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich with 7 percent each, Rick Santorum with 5 percent, and Jon Huntsman with 1 percent.
