The Big Takeaway From Iowa: 75% of Republicans Don't Want Mitt RomneySubmitted by paulus08 on Wed, 01/04/2012 - 11:33
Another good read from buiseness insider! :)
"Mitt Romney won 25.19 percent of the vote in Iowa in 2008 -and lost that contest by 9 points.
Since then, Mitt Romney spent millions of dollars. He got better at debating. He annihilated Rick Perry. The SuperPAC aligned to Romney took out a surging Newt Gingrich with negative ads. And Romney focused his energy on attacking Barack Obama.
All that got him was 25 percent of the vote. Almost exactly the 2008 result he had in Iowa. He lost the nomination then. This isn't exactly the start to 2012 Team Romney was expecting."
