As of yesterday Mitt Romney won the Iowa Caucus by 8 votes with Rick Santorum coming in second and Ron Paul third at 3,788 votes less than Rick. Michelle Bachmann dropped out after rating 6th place in the caucus. Romney held steady at the 25% he had since February, no more, no less. 75% of the electors were scattered among the other 6 candidates.

             Rick Santorum and Michelle Bachmann were the most conservative of the Republican candidates going into the caucus with Herman Cain, the third conservative at the outset of this political season, garnering 58 write-in votes.


            Rick is the remaining conservative going forward. I expect the conservatives now have a clear choice for the Republican Presidential nominee and I expect the other 54% will coalesce behind Rick Santorum going forward. Those states that have open primaries will probably trend towards Romney who the Democrats will continue promoting because he is the easiest Republican candidate to beat. He is most like BO.


            I am happy the msm and establishment Republicans' ploy to infuse confusion into these Republican primaries has suffered a severe setback. I expect they won’t recover from this result. My only fear is that Rick could cave under the personal attacks from the Democrats(progressives). I do hope I am wrong on that fear.
