A new CNN/Time poll of Iowa voters shows a close race between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
Romney leads Republican candidates in Iowa with 25 percent, with Paul a close second with 22 percent of voters backing him.
Rick Santorum, the only candidate who can boat that he has visited every county in Iowa, made a huge jump to third place with 16 percent of the vote. One-time frontrunner Newt Gingrich dropped to fourth place.
The Iowa caucus will be held January 3, kicking off the Republican primary season.
