    I think Santorum wins the Caucus because the Evangelicals coalese around him.

    Ron Paul comes in Second.

    Romney comes in third, but the MSM will claim he won even though he'll get less votes than he did in 2008.

    Gingrich comes in fourth, and then concentrates on SC.

    Perry comes in fifth. May drop out.

    Bachmann comes in sixth, and will drop out.

    Huntsman comes in last... stays in until NH.

    Paul wins and by a lot... Polling does not show indys nor Dems voting for Paul. No Democrat Primary meaning lots will vote this round.

    Mitt second because the media loves him.

    Santorum third, but around 12% I think his "support" is fabricated.

    After that who cares.

    Overall this Race very well might be Paul VS Mitt. No one else has the money or the organization.

    My question, too. Who I think will win and who I want to win are two different people.

    I hear that nearly 50% of the caucus goers are not yet commited to somebody or are willing to change their minds. So, who the hell knows?

    That said, I'm guessing Romney, Paul, and Santorum in that order. Close race though, I wouldn't be surprised if somebody else sneaks into the top 3 or the order changes.
