Rick Santorum, 29,908 votes. 25%. Mitt Romney, 29,874 votes. 25%. Ron Paul, 26, 097 votes. 21%. Newt Gingrich, 16,161 votes. 13%. ...
RINOS and CINOS on Fox News and talk radio say that Romneys's numbers are consistent. They are consistent... consistently stagnant.
The 2 stories emerging from the 2012 Iowa Caucus: Santorum doing as well as he did and Ron Paul surging from 10% in 2008 to 21% in 2012, even though the numbers of votes cast in 2008 and 2012 are close to the same.
Again, Romney numbers are consistent. Consistently stagnant, that is.
Romney = John McDole.
I bet he’s a nice guy, in fact I am sure he is. I’d bet he is a plenty competent manager and would make an entirely average president. I would be delighted to have him beat 0bama. I just don’t think he’ll be able to.
What say you?
Santorum and Paul did well. I wish them both the best of luck.
Like Hannity has said, any GOP candidate is infinitely better than Obama, and I will add this: either Santorum or Paul are better than Romney, although I wish things had turned out differently for Perry.
After four years and tens of millions, Willard can’t get one more stinkin’ per cent.
After four years and tens of millions, Willard cant get one more stinkin per cent.Yes, and if only the GOP activist base were united in support of a single conservative figure we could banish Willard to the ignominy of complete obscurity without the rigours of a long and painful series of primary contests.
And that is exactly why Romney is done! He has managed to oscillate around the 25% mark, and what that means is that once some candidates drop out (let's say Bachman, Perry and Huntsman) their votes will go to the people remaining in the race. I find it difficult to believe that most of those votes will go to Romney, and also doubt they would go to Paul. Which means either Santorum or Gingrich. Romney is done! The moment it shifts from a 7 person race to a 4 person race is the moment Romney starts to run out of mojo.
Nor did he lose a percent - apparently you can't fix stupid!
Actually, Romney had 25.2% in 2008 in the Iowa caucus, and per CNN, Romney has 24.6% in the 2012 Iowa Caucus.
Yep, Romney is stupid, and he can’t be fixed either. :)
Mike Huckabee 40,841 34.4%
Mitt Romney 29,949 25.2% ..Yep, Mr. Liberal stuck on 25!
"Vote Count Error? Did Rick Santorum Really Win the Iowa Caucuses?
DES MOINES, Iowa - Edward True, 28, of Moulton, said he helped count the votes
and jotted the results down on a piece of paper to post to his Facebook page.
He said when he checked to make sure the Republican Party of Iowa
got the count right, he said he was shocked to find they hadnt.
When Mitt Romney won Iowa by eight votes and Ive got a
20-vote discrepancy here, that right there says Rick Santorum won Iowa, True said. Not Mitt Romney.
"Several UNREPORTED news reports have it that Romney
did not win the Iowa Caucuses.
Barring any objective, verifiable proof that shows more than 12 votes mistakenly
being credited to Santorum, Romney lost."
