Ridiculously close, Romney might be inching away.

Oh boy, here's comes some astute analysis from one Sarah Palin. :roll:

Just hope Mittens finishes no higher than 3rd place. :pray

Palin. I could have gone a few more months without hearing her thoughts. Over to CNN I go!

BTW, glad to see you back at HA the past couple days, Goalieman.

Mitt is probably wishing he had skipped Iowa. At least he could have maintained his dignity.

Strr-ikke Two!

Also don't have a horse in this race (and even if I did, as it stands right now I wouldn't even get to vote for him in VA), so am praying for all my HA friends who do. May God bless you all with His grace, clarity, and loving-kindness tonight.

Romney still in second y'all. Hardly behind Santo. The college counties haven't been counted yet, so we could see Paul jump here in a bit.

All the commentators' references to 4 years ago and Huckabee makes me miss him even more...

I don't have TV, so I am not hearing all the comments, but can I just go an have a good cry? I'm pulling for Santorum, but I really, really, really miss Huckabee, and would rather have him over anyone else.

My little report from Story County (Ames) - and I live close to the ISU campus

Speakers for Newt, Ron P, and Perry with his speaker from TX.
No speakers for Santorum, Bachman or Romney which was a big surprise.

More attendees this caucus and much more organized than 4 years ago.

Results:

Paul - 41
Gingrich - 9
Santorum - 6
Perry - 5
Romney - 5
Huntsman - 3
Bachman - 1

After all the talk of Occupy Iowa showing up I was relieved that everyone was civil and polite. There were 10 observers and media with us- one from Germany.

Friends and neighbors on my street were Huckabee supporters 4 years ago and Gingrich supporters this time around.

One of my neighbors and I will be delegates to the county convention.

Why thank you! :)

As unthrilled as I am about this gang of GOP candidates, the election bug always bites me.

Paul is letting me down here, must push Mittens down to 3rd place!

I'm very happy the Paul faction is denied a win.

Does the winner take all or are the delegates divied up by percentage? I know this year the primary states are divied up until after April.

Newt just gave a shout out to Santorum for running a positive campaign.

What I read into Newt concession: If I'm going down, I'm taking Mitt Romney with me.

Anyone else get the feeling during that speech that Newt isn't too fond of Romney? :lol:

Great speech by Gingrich, makes me want to say "Go Newt Go"!

If the only thing Newt is able to accomplish in this campaign is to sink the fraud ship Romney, then I say well done, sir!
