Mitt Romney can’t get traction in Iowa, Newt Gingrich has started to slip there, Rick Perry surged in the summer but then slumped, Michele Bachmann won the state’s straw poll only to later plunge in the polls, and Herman Cain suspended his campaign.
But someone’s got to win this thing and, more and more, signs in the Hawkeye State suggest that someone could be Ron Paul.
