Open Thread: Bachmann and Romney Tied in Iowa Caucus Poll

With Michele Bachmann formally launching her presidential bid today in her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa, the Des Moines Register polled Iowa voters on which GOP candidate they are supporting in 2012 and found an almost even split between Mitt Romney and Bachmann.

Bachmann came in with 22% compared to Romney's 23%, while other GOP candidates polled at 12 to 20% lower rates.

Check out complete poll results after the break, and let us know what you think in the comments.

The race now lacks a frontrunner with a virtual dead heat between Bachmann and Romney, and also has a number of dedicated and substantial blocs supporting other GOP candidates.

Do you think the race will come down to Romney versus Bachmann? Or do you think another GOP candidate can still win the nomination?
