Results of Iowa
« on: January 04, 2012, 04:10:21 am »
So, Romney won by 8 points over Santorum but it was a close race. Perry dropped. Bachmann didn't. Gingrich is staying to personally spite Romney.

A friend told me that there isn't much of a chance of Romney swaying the conservative religious vote because of his religion and that it might end up splitting the conservative base. But I'm not too familiar with it all.

Anyways, what's more important is kicking those loons out of the House and Senate.

Wait is that points or votes?

Ironbite-cause I'm getting a lot of stories that conflict.

Yeah. His Mormonism and perceived liberalism are both flaws in his campaign.

Santorum is just the remainder before the GOP is forced to support Romney. You can't even Google his fucking name and he doesn't have the money to continue.

Santorum is not going to win the nomination. There were two factors to his close second-place win: 1. Nearly every Republican candidate has had one week with frontrunner status. Santorum just got lucky: his frontrunner week was the same week as the actual election. 2. The Iowa caucuses lean heavily towards the evangelical candidate (Mike Huckabee won here in 2008).

Romney may have not always been polling as #1, but he has consistently maintained a steady footing in the polls. He will be the Republican nominee, with Ron Paul as a potential spoiler.

I disagree. As everyone knows, the Republican party has been searching for an alternative to Romney. Every time a front-runner collapses, their supporters jump to the next non-Romney.

Romney will likely win New Hampshire, given that he's focused there rather than Iowa. But Perry and Bachmann will likely drop out soon, and their supporters will probably shift to Santorum. Not to mention you'll have Gingrich going after Romney.

I actually think Santorum will be the nominee. And then Obama will crush him in the general election.

EDIT: This just in: Bachmann's out.

Peh, Bachmann's been out, she just didn't know it.

I slipped over to Fox early this morning...like around 3am and they were already whining the race was too close to call and started bashing Romney.
Amazing. I'm sure if Romney had less votes they wouldn't have even bothered to do a recount, let alone two

Romney's going to win New Hampshire because New Hampshire, weird little state that it is, actually finds evangelism a turn-off. And he used to be governor of Massachusetts, which is close enough to make him "one of our own." No idea about the southern states like VA, though. Maybe Perry or Santorum?

And Perry's still in, actually:

What in God's name is Perry still doing in this race?

He's pure Republican Id - he's got basically everything a Republican would want, minus the votes he lost by being an idiot on Youtube. And for some people that's actually a bonus. So he might think he still has the race.

NOM is apparently taking credit for Ron Paul not finishing on top.
