    ...according to the latest RCP poll spread of only 2 points, too close to call...

    Ron Paul has climbed no doubt due to his trim the cost of government & avoid war rhetoric. I was surprised that Newt Gingrich lost traction so fast with the Iowan constituency. I mean he dropped 5/6 points like overnight. Despite being the superior orator & debater Mitt Romney seems to be losing momentum in Iowa though not by much.
    In New Hampshire Romney is having a field day as the hapless Gingrich & Paul are languishing waaaaaaaay back in a distant 2nd/3rd place...

    In the big picture it's Gingrich by a massacre, so far...

    ...with Romney holding a distant 2nd place & Paul knocked out of contention down in the single digits. The surprise in the big picture is that Bachmann has run over the lack luster Perry & looks to be about to run over Ron Paul as well. To muddy up the waters even more, despite Gingrich showing a major lead nationally... Romney is the only candidate currently that has a realistic chance of taking out president Obama...

    ...with president Obama having only a +1.8 spread lead over Romney... too close to call. I don't understand this at all as the GOP candidates seem to be jumping up & down the scale like farts on a hot skillet. I don't think the GOP constituency has a dreaming idea of what, who or why their even voting for??? Maybe it's due to the independents that are polled? I dunno what do you think about the candidates riding the up & down yo-yo from week to week... maybe a constituency gone bananas???

    It won't split when it comes to the general.

    Obama is toast.
