The Obama campaign’s current line is that its firewall states are intact and Romney’s decision to campaign in them amounts to a “Hail Mary.” Rasmussen’s latest poll suggests that one of Obama’s firewall states is engulfed in flames.

Iowa remains neck-and-neck in the closing days of Election 2012, with Mitt Romney now showing a one-point lead.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Iowa Voters finds the Republican challenger with 49% support, while President Obama earns 48% of the vote. Two percent (2%) like someone else in the race, and one percent (1%) is undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The MOE is 4.5 points, so obviously Iowa is too close to call. But just as obviously, it’s very much up for grabs and Romney swept up the endorsements of all six of the state’s major newspapers over the weekend. When you’re on the ten yard line, it’s not really a Hail Mary, is it?

Update: Here’s Romney’s newest ad running in Iowa.
