Ron Paul Will Win The Iowa Caucus
Ryan Shaw | January 2, 2012
"My prediction is that Ron Paul will come away with the win in Iowa.
Every day Iowa has a change of heart in the polls—showing surges for Mitt Romney one day and Rick Santorum the next. The one and only candidate that has consistently polled favorably throughout the past few weeks is Ron Paul. Mr. Paul has the base support in Iowa that will come out and support him with their vote no matter what. That is important, and no other candidate can say that. What's more is that the voter turnout for the Republican caucus in Iowa is extremely low—and that is music to Mr. Paul's ears.
In 2008, then Republican candidate for president Mike Huckabee won Iowa with only 40,000 votes. Only 118,696 total votes were cast. This helps Ron Paul's chances at victory. His support in Iowa is energized, unflinching, and quite large. Paul has consistently polled in the 20% in every poll during the past few weeks, which puts him neck to neck with Mitt Romney, who is also polling around the 20% range. What puts Paul above Romney however is the support he has among Independent and Democratic voters that are fed up with the status quo. So Ron Paul has some support among Independents and Democrats—so what? This is a Republican caucus after all, why should non-Republicans matter?"
