NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Today is the last big push before the Iowa caucuses tomorrow, and the latest poll shows there could be a surprise winner.
Right now, more Iowans are leaning toward Rick Santorum.
The latest Des Moines register polls have Santorum virtually tied with Mitt Romney.
Santorum's late surge prompted opponents to pounce.
Texas governor Rick Perry blasted Santorum's record on spending, saying, "He's a serial earmarker, and matter of fact, stood up as late as yesterday and said he was proud of all those earmarks."
Four out of ten Iowans still say they could still change their minds.
Seven candidates are criss-crossing the state in 24 separate events ahead of Tuesday's caucuses.
