Who do you think will win the Iowa Caucuses in both parties?
Looks like the Democratic race in IA will come down to Clinton, Obama, and Edwards.
Looks like the GOP race in IA will come down to Huckabee and Romney.
MY PREDICTIONS FOR IOWA CAUCUSES:
1st Place: John Edwards (probably like 30%)
2nd Place: Hillary Clinton (probably like 27%)
3rd Place: Barack Obama (probably like 25%)
Joe Biden finishes 4th with probably around 8%
1st Place: Mitt Romney (probably like 28%)
2nd Place: Mike Huckabee (probably like 26%)
3rd Place: John McCain (probably like 18%)
4th Place: Rudy Giuliani (probably like 10%)
Who do you think will win the nominations?
Looks like Obama or Hillary are gonna win the Dem nomination.
Looks like the GOP race is much more open with Romney, Rudy, and McCain having the best shot (maybe Huckabee).
MY PREDICTIONS FOR THE NOMINATIONS:
Democrats: Hillary Clinton (aided by Edwards' win in IA and Obama's 3rd place finish there-- Obama and Hillary are the only ones that can run well beyond IA, so an Edwards victory in IA would damage Obama in later states, giving Hillary the edge and the nomination)
Republicans: Unsure (John McCain and Rudy Giuliani-- McCain 3rd place finish in IA could boost him to win over Romney in NH and maybe in MI, giving him monentum into SC and FL and Super Tuesday; most of the delegates vote in bigger more pro-Rudy states and he remains competitive in MI and NH, bringing a muddled race into FL and Super Tuesday where he would run the table and get the nomination).
Huckabee wins Iowa ahead of Romney by 5%. McCain wins NH over Romney by at least 4%.
I would proably agree on Edwards coming out of no where and winning Iowa, with Obama, not Hildog in a close second. Then I would say Hildog squeezes out a close one in NH, with Obama finishing second (3-5% ahead?)
I'll let you know my final predictions on January 9th...
Yea I think Publius has it right here... romney loses Iowa to Huckabee and thus loses momentum as well as New Hampshire (to McCain)
in my official hub, i picked huck to beat mitt though.
but boy was i wrong on the democrats caucus results though... looks like obama might defeat hillary.
mccain wins the GOP though i think and has a good shot at beating back obama in november, but it will be tough. i wouldnt be surprised if obama beats mccain-- voters seem to be looking for something fresh and mccain being a veteran senator might not seem fresh enough for voters come election day. though obama's experience or lack thereof will hurt him especially against someone with the respected experience of john mccain.
by the way, i think you can tell who i'm voting for.
mccain-huckabee all the way to the White House.
Any leading candidate straight from the religious right isn't going to win. The last thing the Republicans need is a baptist minister as the leading man on a Presidential ticket. Also, do you really think McCain would be VP? I doubt it. This is his last political hora.
who would be McCain's VP then?
also huckabee's not campaigning anymore as a baptist minster, but as an effective governor of arkansas.
I'm still ok with Huckabee as a VP, I just think it would be a mistake for him to be the Presidential nomination.

Will Obama go 2 for 2? Probably not, but possible. Hillary probably, but closer than the experts think.McCain or Mit? Huckabee will make it tighter than most think even though it is NH. McCain & Mit split the top vote, so Huckabee will be a close 3rd.

It was a bad new/ good news scene for me yesterday. I find out the famous Obama girl didn't even bother to vote on Super Tuesday, but in finding this out I found a gem showing why we should get Hucklebee into the White House. You won't even remember Obama girl after Huckabee Girl.this link...

Can Mitt Romney beat Barack Obama in the next presidential election?Given that Romney is the front-runner, perhaps it's worth pondering.

While I normally love presidential politics, I feel somewhat...blah, I guess about this year's pool of candidates. Hillary would be interesting, except that she's been around since I was a teenager. McCain, ditto.I propose that we have a boxing tournament.Obama v. Edwards for the...

What does everybody think about John McCain choice of Sarah Pahlin as his Vice Presidential pick?My feeling is that she might be a bit too parochial with too little experience. That my feeling. However, I admit I don't know much about her right now. Does anyone? Perhaps upon learning more about...

In a recent poll, Romney edges out Obama in 2012. What really surprised me is that Huckabee and Obama are almost tied in the poll. Palin didn't fair as well. I hope she takes this to heart! Did you read what Mama Bush said about Palin? "She seems happy in Alaska - I hope she stays...
