Ron Paul #2 -- Iowa GOP Power Rankings

The Republican field hasn’t significantly shifted in terms of rankings placement since our last edition, which belies the fact that individual percentages for candidates continue to shift dramatically. What can be said with a reasonable amount of certainty is that there is no clear and current GOP frontrunner in Iowa.

The predictions and opinions reprinted below are provided by a group of state panelists comprised of academics, grassroots activists, political reporters and consultants. While unscientific, the rankings were proven to be a valuable source of insights into the 2008 Iowa ground game on both the Republican and Democratic sides of aisle. Panelists are not asked to provide their picks if the caucuses were held tonight, but to draw on their own perspectives and knowledge of the caucus process to say who has built the best organization, has momentum or spark and is likely to exit caucus night with a victory.

That being said, if the caucuses were held today, this is how the panel believes the night would end:

In the article it mentions

In the article it mentions that the Paul campaign isnt doing much to reach out to more voters in order to appeal to a wider base. They best do this if they have a chance of winning Iowa, which I think can happen.

Very false

The campaign is. In fact I just got call on my cell phone two nights ago to help do phone banking to reach out to potential voters.

I think this is not enought

We have to do something. Like have all supporters from neighboring states help in campaigning on weekends in Iowa. I focusing on Iowa is our best bet.
