The winners? In this order – Romney (25%), Santorum (25%), Paul (22%), perhaps Gingrich (14%).
The others? If they couldn’t put a blip on the screen in Iowa, they aren’t going to do it anywhere.
Actually, if you look at the numbers of REPUBLICANS that voted for them, Santorum won.
According to exit polls, 18% of Romney’s vote was crossover and 48% of Paul’s was crossover.
In Iowa, one can change parties the day of the caucus, and change back the next day.
Of course, Santorum isn’t a great pick either…..
Maybe Perry will bounce back.
As I heard someone say the other day: Why do we keep letting Outsiders pick our candidates?
In New York State, a person can vote in a primary only if a major election has passed since they changed their party.
But IOWA gets to winnow the Conservative field…..?!!?!
