Political Shtuff [Dec. 30th, 2011|10:11 am]
It looks to me that Romney is going to clearly take Iowa. I've thought he would for a week or so but now it seems to be solid. I think he's going to actually have a win by a fair margin, as voters may poll for other candidates but, when it comes time, will go with the solid competitor. He's got a strong image.

What will happen to the field after Iowa? I think that if Romney takes the state, he'll remain on top. I think it'll be very hard for others to get the momentum since Romney has been pretty solid on poll numbers, not swinging up and down like everyone else.

Then it'll be a drawn out and painful race with Obama. (Hopefully Obama can take him. At this point, if I have to guess, I'd predict a narrow Obama win unless we see another serious drop in the economy.)

In a way, I kind of hope Ron Paul wins Iowa, just because it would be a spectacular upset and result in some very interesting debates/discussions/whinging/railing. (And it looks like our own raving loony canidadates are well down in the numbers, so none of the other "interesting" ones will take it.)

Gonna be quite the political parade. :P

Romney has a pretty impressive ability to put his foot in his mouth. He's also a raving sycopath, who will tell you anything you want to hear to get him elected. No real positions, just follows the winds of fortune. Scary in it's own right.

That said though, if the last 4 years have demonstrated anything, it's that Obama is no different from any other suit in Washington.
