Michele Bachmann will win by a small margin
Ron Paul will come in second or third. He is an expert at getting people to vote in straw polls
Mitt Romney will do better than most people think.
Herman Cain will place in the top 6, but it will not be enough to give him the momentum he needs to raise his profile and much needed cash
Pawlenty really hurt himself the other night and he fill finish very poorly and will be dropping out of the race before the real vote is cast
Gingrich will finish close to the bottom, he won't be too far behind Pawlenty in calling it a day
Huntsman won't even register
Rick Perry will have a very good showing even though he is a write in
Sarah Palin will do remarkably well for someone who has not announced her candidacy
Santorum I think will do better than originally predicted, he had a good showing at the debate last night, he is also beloved by social conservatives for his strong and outspoken voice for the voiceless on abortion
McCotter may actually have a bit of an impact in the poll. He has a wonderful dry sense of humor and is a Midwesterner Some votes of his are suspect, but overall a good solid conservative
I read in the paper today what the candidates are serving in their tents - i.e Cain is serving Godfather Pizza of course, Bachmann is doing B-B-Q and Funnel Cake, Paul wouldn't announce what he was serving, but the funniest part is that almost every candidate is having Mike Huckabee playing his bass. He will be making the rounds for the party tomorrow in Ames - I suppose he need to fill his one hour show on Fox
Who do you think will win?
