UTICIA, N.Y., Jan. 17 (UPI) -- It's a tight four-way race in Iowa, where caucuses will choose Monday who they want to be the Democratic nominee for president.
Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, Missouri Rep. Richard Gephardt and North Carolina Sen. John Edward were all within 4 percentage points of each other and within the margin of error of the latest Zogby poll, John Zogby said Saturday. All other Democratic contenders have three points or less in Iowa.
"Edwards had his best night ever, and Dean had a solid night. Kerry had his slowest night in a while, and this was not Gephardt's finest hour. Dean leads among younger voters, independents, and liberals," Zogby said.
"Gephardt continues to lead among older voters and those with less than a college education. Edwards is strongest in the central region of Iowa and among college educated. Kerry is strongest among 50-64 year-olds, men, and those who earn the highest incomes."
The telephone poll of 503 likely caucus voters statewide over a three-day period occurred Jan. 14 to Jan. 16 and has a margin of error of plus/minus 4.5 percentage points.
