First thoughts on the Iowa primary.

    OK, with [96%] of the vote in we can maybe start to look at the results and get some meaningful data out of them.  Apologies if any of this sounds loopy: the cold that took over the rest of my family last week finally hit me, so anything weird that I say is the medication.  Also… you’ll note that I avoided being rude about the | Read More »

CNN says Paul, Romney, and Santorum are in the top tier.The Washington Post’s Fix tweets that the 2012 evangelical crowd is about the same as 2008.Anecdotally from several caucuses, and anecdotally only, I’m hearing the Occupiers showed up for Ron Paul.

    What if Santorum Wins?

    Thirty minutes from the start of the Hawkeye Caucii, let’s ponder Nate Silver’s analysis. I can confirm from the ground that most everyone thinks Mitt Romney is going to win, but there are a heck of a lot of engaged evangelicals on the ground today doing last minute work to help Santorum and also to stop Romney.If Santorum wins, a lot of people will be | Read More »

    Santorum Did Not Expect This

    I’m at the Santorum event tonight in Iowa. Nate Silver at the New York Times says we should not be surprised by a Santorum win, and I would not be surprised by a Santorum win. It is very possible based on the strength of evangelicals showing up across Iowa today to organize and get to the caucuses tonight..These people really, really do not want Mitt | Read More »

    The Huntsman Buzz In Iowa

    I think it was a big mistake for Huntsman to write off Iowa. Today I am convinced of it. Every time the subject come up with Iowans I encounter, not to mention other conservatives here for the Hawkeye Caucii, they lament what might have been Jon Huntsman.While I have issues with his record as Governor, it is much more conservative than Mitt Romney’s and he | Read More »

    Its time to Unite!

    I say whoever comes out ahead in the evangelical group needs to be the one to unite us all. If its Romney, so be it, but today Iowa will decide and I say that today is also the day that most of us should decide.  Divide and conquer was Napolean’s strategy and we’re doing it to ourselves!  Obama couldn’t have done it better himself.
