Rick Santorum (Will Probably) Win Iowa Caucus

(So what you’re saying is they’ll never be totally sure if Santorum is #1 or #2? – promoted by ProgressiveCowgirl)

A two-week recount and certification of the Iowa caucus has, for the time being, rendered Rick Santorum the winner. From the Washington Times:

After a two-week recount the state GOP, which runs the caucuses, announced the certified results – but said it could not declare a winner because there are still too many errors which will never be resolved.

Still, the news could dent the air of inevitability after Mr. Romney had seemed to go two-for-two in the first two contests.

As of Jan. 4, the party said Mr. Romney had 30,015 votes and Mr. Santorum was eight behind.

Now the party says the tally stands at 29,839 for Mr. Santorum, and 29,805 for Mr. Romney.

I posted a story on Jan. 7th outlining the reasons why Santorum might win; voting discrepancies in several counties between local party officials and the state GOP website. It now appears that Santorum will be victorious. And with James Dobson’s endorsement… it looks like he has the primaries in the bag.

I hate to say I told ya so…

    Per the Des Moines Register, “there are too many holes” in the certified totals to know for certain who won.”

    Holy Crap!  Honest to goodness VOTER FRAUD.  Gosh, and it is in the GOP caucus!

    Where is Gessler when you need him?  Where is GOoP??

    Idiots.

    Did those voters show a proper photo ID?

    goes on radio to say Santorum definite winner.  Then in news conference basically says since 8 precincts can’t be certified there’s nothing they can do but leave it to the pundits to decide. Besides having demographics not at all typical of the nation as a whole, they apparently can’t keep track of close races and don’t much care that they can’t. How about ending the ridiculous practice letting Iowa hang on to anachronistic first place position? New Hampshire may also have nothing to do with national demos but at least they seem competent.

    The whole Iowa caucus process is worthless. A year of crap from the media a the clown car inhabitants. Finalizing with a system that does not matter because it can’t even count the miniscule number of votes cast.

    A stunning joke on America.
