2nd by less than 200 votes.

The poor media is going to have a tough time ignoring that.

I expected Bachman and Paul to come in first and second. Bachman probably gained a lot of votes because Iowa is her home state. So the fact that Paul came so close to winning is telling. Not to discredit Bachman of course, but an interesting point to make I think.

Also interesting is that both Paul and Bachman are members of the house, not governors. The last time a sitting member of the house won the presidency was in 1880 with James Garfield. I think it is time we elect another congressman as president.

Pawlenty in third? That is a surprise to me, but it was a distant third. Newt is finished...he lost to write ins. That proves his campaign is over.

Iowa straw polls. Paul came in second.

So I guess we can figure she loses the primaries like the other nutters who won the straw poll

Looks like it's going to be Romney, Paul, Bachman, and Perry down the stretch.

I think it pretty much puts an end to any hopes Pawlenty may have had as well.

Carl Cameron being very favorable and respectful in his words about Paul, calling him a real contender now.

Personally I believe this is completely pointless. Its like being voted most likely to succeed in high school. Its great but means absolutely nothing.

Hopefully this leaves a bad taste in the mouths of those who simply want to parrot the "unelectable" nonsense, because they seem to be stuck in 2008.

Well like clockwork grandpa murked u comes in to discredit the poll.

I think it's better that he got a close 2nd, because the media still has to take it seriously.

History shows that Paul now has a 50/50 chance to win Iowa.

Tissue for what moron? I dont have a leg in this, nor does anyone else. The only thing this will help with is their ability to get contributions. I dont dislike any of the candidates nor have I decided who I like the most so bite me.
