DES MOINES, Jan 31: Months into their White House campaigns, US presidential candidates Sunday made a final frenzied push to persuade voters before Iowa kicks off the nomination process.
Democrat Hillary Clinton, fearful of a 2008 repeat when she was beaten to the punch in Iowa by an upstart Barack Obama, was leaving nothing to chance, stumping in the heartland this weekend as her main rival Senator Bernie Sanders did the same, seeking to deny her yet another shot at history.
She leads Sanders 45 percent to 42 percent in the survey.
Republican Donald Trump and his nearest rival Ted Cruz meanwhile made unmasked appeals to Iowa's evangelical conservatives so important in the first-in-the-nation contest on Monday.
The same poll gave Trump a bigger lead over his Republican
rivals: The billionaire businessman had the support of 28 percent of voters, followed by Cruz at 23 percent, and Rubio with 15 percent.     ?AFP
