The overinfluence of the media

From the details in yesterday's PPP Iowa poll:

Saturday vs Sunday, Who do you think will win Iowa?

The only changes were
Romney from 23 to 26%
Santorum from 8% to 11%
Not sure from 31% to 25%

Saturday vs Sunday, Who runs the strongest campaigns?
The only changes were
Santorum from 11% to 16%
Not sure from 32% to 27%

I don't see how the typical voter can form such an opinion about these two questions without being heavily influenced by the media.
