A new Gallup national panel survey of 1,008 adults (conducted 12/0 through 12/13) finds:
- 67% of Americans would view Barack Obama winning the Iowa caucus as "a sign that he will seriously challenge Hillary Clinton for the nomination;" 31% would view it as a "temporary victory."
- 70% would view Hillary Clinton losing the Iowa caucus as a temporary setback; 28% would view it as "a sign that her campaign is in serious trouble."
- 71% would view Rudy Giuliani losing both the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary as a sign that his campaign is in serious trouble; 28% would view it as a temporary setback.
"Respondents were drawn from Gallup's household panel, which was originally recruited through random selection methods. The final sample is weighted so it is representative of U.S. adults nationwide."
