In the wake of Romney's win in the Iowa staw-poll, the competition has gone into overdrive trying to diminish the results, (despite wishing that they had some results for others to diminish). Charlie Cook's latest column (via email, sorry) gives what I think is a "fair and balanced" assessment.
The latest poll from out in Iowa shows Romney expanding his lead in that state. Real Clear Politics has the details as follows:
On the Republican side, Mitt Romney surges into a strong lead while Thompson continues to rise and Giuliani and McCain slide:
Romney 25 (+9 vs last poll May 14-16)
F. Thompson 14 (+5)
Giuliani 13 (-4)
McCain 10 (-8)
Gingrich 6 (nc)
Undecided 22 (nc)
