Well, I can spend the evening watching a bunch of overhyped has-beens hilariously fight for victory in a contest no one cares about, or I can watch the Michigan-Virginia Tech game.

With Santorum surging from behind, this could be a messy finish.

Nihilist's Guide to Reticent Entropy: I've been saying the Iowa caucus-- and indeed, all the hype about the 2012 election-- is ridiculously pointless.


Then this must be the most pointless post in Fark history.

It's a Republican caucus.

so much lose for all those people who really though Newt had a chance.

Great at debates and speachifying, but at some point reality catches up to you.

hmmm, where did that happen before?

what_now: There was an early Santorum surge, but it looks like Ron Paul is now coming from behind.


I figured they probably switch off who comes from behind. You know, for variety.

Iowa takes center stage
hoping to soon turn the page.
They raise a ruckus
running their caucus
with ideas from the stone age.

Your mistake is in assuming that the Republican base is interested in Sanity. They're interesting in comforting and familiar rhetoric from White Christians like themselves, and he's just not zesty enough.
 
2012-01-03 09:25:28 PM  
at 18.2% it's still Ron Paul on top with Santorum over Romney.

Also, 2 more people voted for Cain. He must have relatives in Iowa

If you add all the ain't Romney votes (minus Ron Paul and Huntsman) you get 53% of the GOP doesn't like Romney.

Huntsman has literally never set foot in Iowa. He's been very explicit in saying that he believes that Iowa doesn't matter.
 
2012-01-03 09:26:03 PM  

DamnYankees: How would it be a Romney win if he came in third?


Because the big thing that Romney had to do is prevent one of the other marginally credible candidates (i.e., Perry or Gingrich) from placing in the top 3. Ron Paul is insane and will not be the GOP nominee. Rick Santorum is 2012's Mike Huckabee and will not be the GOP nominee.

Therefore, Romney wins.

In fairness, you can't just "pretend" to be crazy, like Romney is doing. I need to be genuinely, authentically, pants on head retarded.

ok, so Romney won.

He's only worried about Newt.
 
2012-01-03 09:26:29 PM  
Oh, and I also want to point out to the moronic college-age kids that Ron Paul has no chance to win the Presidency, and even if he did, he cannot and will not legalize marijuana.

His whole states' rights thing is about supporting his neo-confederate agenda. He's against the Civil Rights Act. He's a creationist. He published a racist newsletter for many years, and only disavowed it after it was brought to light during his last Presidential run.

He's not the cool guy that will make weed legal. He's a Texas fundamentalist, isolationist, anti-semitic, racist jackass who wants to make the world safe for people like himself.

And I can't believe so many people fall for his act.
 
2012-01-03 09:26:31 PM  
I am sure it has been said but I find it farking hilarious that Santorum is a front-runner now. Go Repubs!

bugontherug: a) The straw poll is not the caucus. The caucus has a long, established history, and its effects are well known.



and that history is it can make losers but not winners. Besides this year its more f'd up than ever

Do either of the other two have the campaign staff/funding to contest larger states like FL? Santorm can be written off as the Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul can be dismissed as RON PAUL. That leaves you with Romney as the only choice and winner.

It could get pretty interesting in South Carolina, though, if Romney pulls 3rd here. He'll most certainly win NH but there is a LOT of anti-Romney rhetoric in SC.
 
2012-01-03 09:27:45 PM  
Looks like Santorum is squeezing out after being pinched between Paul and Romney in a three-way.

Didn't Romney basically swear off Iowa? Coming in a close 3rd in a state he didn't really campaign in would be a good sign for him.
 
2012-01-03 09:28:12 PM  

dameron: Shaggy_C: Why? He has a 20-point margin in New Hampshire. He doesn't need to place above third in Iowa. He's already won in that respect.

He has a 20 point lead in New Hampshire now, but if say two of the second tier evangelical motards drop out, say Perry and Bachmann, much of their support will go to "Not Romney"


The Talibangelicals have had a hard time getting a foothold in NH, which, while red, is traditionally libertarian instead of theocratic. Romney and RON PAUL. Even if Perry and Bachmann drop out, there won't be enough voters moving to Hunstman, Frothy, or Gangrenegrich to make any of them a threat. Only if they move to RON PAUL would there be a chance of Romney losing in NH.

That means a majority of the party doesn't like Romney, and he still hasn't been hit yet on his liberal stances.

Let me clarify: I don't mean that all college-age kids are morons, but that the moronic ones support Ron Paul because they think he's on their side and will legalize marijuana.

It does amaze me he is called a libertarian.

If I can't take away women's reproductive rights, how can I protect liberty?

He'll ban federal court review over all abortion laws.

at 22% Ron Paul is still in the lead, but he is losing his grip on Santorum. RomneyCare is still in 3rd.

1 more person voted for Cain.
