Iowa: Cain 37, Romney 27, Paul 12, Gingrich 8
Hot Air ^ | OCTOBER 20, 2011 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Remember when Iowa was going to be a battle between Perry and Bachmann for the conservative vote? He’s now at 5.9 percent, she’s at 3.9 percent. They’re barely ahead of Newt Gingrich — combined.

Cain by 10 with the caucuses just 75 or so days away. Unless he’s taken major damage over this week’s abortion kerfuffle, which I doubt, I don’t see why he can’t be this cycle’s Huckabee.

Interesting that Cain leads by far among those who identify as Strong GOP -and- very high among those as Not Strong GOP.

Karl Rove told Greta tonight that Newt spent all day in a museum in Chicago looking at dinosaur bones. He said he _should_ be in Iowa pressin’ the flesh. Like my bro Rick Perry should be.

"Newt spent all day in a museum"

It is hard to figure Newt. It is almost as if he is shooting for Secretary of State in sombody else's administration.

Yet Romney still treats Perry as his main rival.

I used to have a tremendous amount of respect for Karl Rove, until I realized that he had passed over to the dark side.

Bingo. My guess is Newt would take any cabinet position offered. He’s a politician at heart.

Cain lost me in the last 24 hours with his waffle talk.

9-9-9 is now 9-0-9, which is the same old stuff we've gotten from politicians forever.

His lack of a strong opinion on abortion makes me wonder if he isn't as big a compromiser as Romney.

It's so sad there are no real men in this race.

Rick Perry should be all over the media -- on interview shows, talk radio, Sunday round-table shows, etc., just speaking his mind, letting the voters get to know him, his take on the issues, his in-depth policy prescriptions, and his guiding philosophies.

Since when has any politician suggested those below the poverty line pay 9%?

Cain’s plan has them still paying 9% in sales tax, just not the 1.35% income tax they would have to pay. (9 - 7.65% payroll tax = 1.35%)

Yep, and if not he’ll take speaking and TV appearances for 10X what he used to get paid for them. Mama needs new ice!

Still don’t understand why Romney is still up in the numbers?

What do you mean lack of strong opinion on abortion? He said he’s personally pro-life, but doesn’t see it as the government’s role to tell people what to do.

This strikes me as being a bit like a road race, or tour stage. We had an early breakaway with Bachmann and Pawlenty, then the pack came together. On some early hills a pretender named Trump tried to make a show, but got dropped straight away.

Romney is in the leader's jersey, but, he is in the peloton riding ahead of the chaos to avoid the crashes- yet not willing to send his team to the front this early.

Then we had an attack from Perry, but he was run down and is going backwards. Cain was in that chase group, drafting up until now and is staying at the front. The attacks are coming again and it is like a break away attempt that goes too soon and can't hold on.

It looks like he's gone too soon and may not have the support to take it home.

With all of the teams lining up and marking the favorites, might it be Noot who is looking for the right wheel and the open lane to jump out and take it all?
