Watching the news each night on all the networks, it amazes me how Romney can even be ahead. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it appears he's trying to buy the presidency along with negative ads. He can't convince me, he has nothing to do with the ads running in Iowa. Romney gets on the airways and puts on this show of flag waving and really saying little. I don't like Gingrich but he at least was ahead in Iowa, before the negative ads, on pure Debate issues that he commanded for the most part. Romney appears to be big business, outbuy your competitors and you will win? What are your thoughts?
" Romney appears to be big business, outbuy your competitors and you will win?"
Yep, corporate politician. Gingrich isn't that much different, other than he doesn't have the coin to spend like Romney does. But Gingrich has some serious ethics issues.
Unfortunately that's the way politics works thanks to the Supreme Court which removed virtually all limits on campaign spending by corporations and "super pacs." However, IMHO, Romney is far preferable to Gingrich who has serious character and policy issues.
Is Romney even ahead? Ron Paul doesn't seem to be accepted by the establishment. Main stream media has lost their credibility with a lot of people whether they like it or not.
Thank Fox's Chris Wallace for the latest example stating that if Ron Paul wins Iowa "It doesn't count"
Mike, Don't they all have serious ethical issues? lol
The ultra conservative Republicans have an unfortunate disproportionate influence on the selection of their party's nominee. The opinions of Iowa Republicans turn off moderate and independent voters in many states. They are not at all representative of US voters as a whole.

Iowa did not clarify the GOP nomination at all, except for perhaps it indicates that Romney will ultimately win the GOP nomination. Romney will be 2 for 2 after New Hampshire next Tuesday. After that, who knows? Romney will be going into states in the south where he is far...

Do you think there's still a chance that someone other than Romney or Gingrich will emerge and become the Republican nominee. Both Romney and Gingrich both have good, but not spectacular levels of support, and there is a sense that neither one of them quite fits the bill, in terms of what the party...

In light of the latest developments in the republican primaries i'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I don't see a path for Romney to win the nomination, I think after florida Gingrich runs away with it.

With a slight victory in the Iowa Caucus, is Mitt Romney set to be the Republican nominee?

Is it time for Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich to drop out of the Republican race?Are the GOP candidates doing more harm to their party by constantly fighting with each other and is it time for Paul, Santorum and Gingrich to drop out?
