Businessman Herman Cain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are nearly tied for first place in Iowa, the first-in-the-nation caucus state, according to a newly released poll by the Des Moines Register newspaper.

Cain edged out Romney 23 percent to 22 percent in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, reflecting a surge of 13 percentage points for Cain since the newspaper’s last poll in late June. Meanwhile, onetime Iowa favorite Michele Bachmann, a U.S. representative from Minnesota, plunged from 22 percent in June to just 8 percent in the new survey.

The poll, taken Oct. 23 to 26, puts Rep. Ron Paul of Texas in third place with 12 percent, Bachmann in fourth place, and has former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Gov. Rick Perry tied for fifth place at 7 percent. Former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania got 5 percent and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, just 1 percent.
