Iowa Votes

Well, after a runup that seems to start shortly after I was born, we will finally get the first votes cast today in Iowa. It will be a while before we know what happens. I will post updates as events warrant.

This election cycle defies prediction, but I’ll make one anyway. Clinton narrowly edges Sanders, something like 49-45. Trump wins Iowa but with a smaller margin than expected. Something like Trump 25, Cruz 22, Rubio 17. He will then say something outrageous so that the media will give him free campaign ads talk about it until New Hampshire.

We might see one or two candidates drop out after Iowa, but I suspect most of them will hang on until New Hampshire and possibly South Carolina.

    Way to go, Cruz!

    Great job as well to Rubio. I like Cruz, but man, Rubio impresses me so much, in so many ways. Glad he had a good showing tonight. Right up there with Trump. Impressive.

    Looks like the final calls is Cruz wins, Trump second, Rubio a close third.  I’m glad Rubio did well.  He’s one of the few in the field I can vote for.

    Looks like Clinton will hold onto Iowa but BARELY.  Less than a 1% lead with 93% in.  I never thought I’d cheering for a socialist crackpot, but here we are.

    Uh Oh, the Mullah is not happy with Hal’s level of commitment to “The Cause”. Praying 3 times a day to the warming god is not enough, the mullah wants 5 and will invoke the strict apostasy laws in an attempt to separate Hal from his head. All other issues are subordinate to the clarion cries of mother earth pleading ,”Save me, oh wise one”.

    It’s KP duty for you, Hal, and just be glad that the NKVD does not put you and your family in a gulag.
