Why Richardson is Gaining in Iowa

If there was any doubt why Bill Richardson is gaining in Iowa, this should make it all clear.

Republican polling firm, Strategic Vision, has just released a poll of likely Iowa caucus voters. And here's the question that shows why Governor Richardson is gaining on the other candidates in Iowa.

6. Do you favor a withdrawal of all United States military from Iraq within the next six months? (Democrats Only)
Yes 83%
No 6%
Undecided 11%

The question might have been phrased, "Do you support Bill Richardson's plan for ending the war in Iraq?" because getting our troops out within the next 6 months is exactly what Governor Richardson is calling for, and he's the only candidate pushing that position. And apparently 83% of likely Democratic caucus-goers in Iowa like that position.

His position on the war in Iraq is a key reason, Governor Richardson has moved up to third in Iowa.
