Ugh.
I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

It's not really all that surprising. Iowa is populated with many Evangelical Christians, he's going to have a much more difficult time in New Hampshire.

Just curious, anyone over the age of 35 on this board EVER been polled, either in person, or on the telephone, or in the infamous neighborhood greasy spoon???? I haven't. Who the f*** are these people? What would the political landscape be like without the "pollsters". (...just me, idealizing in a "dream" world).

Do you live in Iowa? How about New Hampshire? If not, your opinion wouldn't matter anyway.

I'm over 35 and yes, I have taken a political poll by telephone. I always try to give market researchers and Gallop poll people my time because I know they deal with so much rejection everyday. mom

...Just a rhetorical Q, IHeart...just wondering how accurate these polls are and just how many people they base their "statistical data" on? Hundreds, thousands, etc...? Like any "statistics", they are rife for "spin".

I almost always take the time to do telephone polls. The callers have terrible jobs and probably get hung up on constantly, so unless I'm in the middle of something important, I'll answer their questions.
Now living in DC. I really have to change my name on the board.

I really hope he is the Republican candidate. And then, we can see where 'we' truly stand.

The small percentage that actually takes the time to vote, that is.

I still think he's an indication of NOTHING I can wrap my head around.

Liberal scare tactic used with "great success" in 1980, 1984, 1988, 2000, and 2004...

"""Have your abortions now, ladies!"""

I think we've found the quote for idiot of the week.
If Tom DeLay is The Hammer, then I proclaim a new title for the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi: The Briber. Nancy Pelosi had to bribe her members with spinach to get their votes.

JAG said it, but I read in USA today that Iowa is 40% evangelical christians. It's not an accurate barometer of where he stands nationally.
Also, the article mentioned that his buzz far surpasses his cdampaign $$.
....but the world goes 'round

Methinks the Iowans have been in the cornfield a mite too long.
