Posted on 01/03/2012 11:27:04 PM PST by therightliveswithus
According to Karl Rove, now speaking on Fox News, a high-ranking official in the Republican party has declared that Mitt Romney has won the Iowa Caucus by exactly 14 votes.
Update- Fox News has confirmed that a second source has verified this report and that Mitt Romney has indeed won.
Enjoy your Pyrrhic Victory, Mitt.
Not shocking, convenient how they “found” a lot of ballots at the end for Romney.
Enjoy your Pyrrhic Victory, Rove.
Mitt outspent rick 100 to 1, or there about. The party can not afford Mitt if it takes 100 to 1 to win by 14 votes.
That means Mitt might need 100 BILLION to beat Obama.
The Republican Party disgusts me.
hey! Fu%k you Karl!
Gotta love it when Mitts down by 4 when every precinct is counted but one in the late hours of the night and then they find those votes and he wins by 14. Probably the number of wives Joseph Smith had...haha
On the other hand, Santorum practically lived in Iowa for the past year, and went to all 99 precincts. Romney only came into Iowa for the last two weeks and blitzed it. Did pretty good for a two week heavy duty effort as opposed to Santorum who took up for all ostensible purposes, residency in Iowa. Santorum fought a good fight though, considering. I liked his speech he gave tonite. It was heartwarming.
There are more than 1700 precincts.
Born and raised in Iowa!
Right, Mitt “won!”
So if anyone else drops out, who gets their votes? Mitt? Not no, but hell no!
Mitt has a percentage problem — 25% maximum support gets Mitt nothing; by week’s end, Santorum will surpass any lead Mitt thinks he gained from this “win” in Iowa.
You might want to wait for the official results. Jus’ sayin’/
The magnificent Karl Rove strikes again.
States should have ‘real elections’ with ONLY party members voting. These caucuses are just stupid, IMO.
Also, party members should have been members of the party for 3 months to be eligible to vote. No dems would be registering as republicans to show up and vote on the same day. This should have been done THREE YEARS ago after seeing what happened with McAmnesty. Now, here we are at it again....
Santorum was the big victor tonight. He has major momentum on his side. Romney didn’t do any better than his polling numbers. He didn’t win over any converts.
You know how he won by secret voting.
This is what is called a virtual tie. Should Romney prevail in a virtual tie, the headline will be that Romney won. Should Santorum prevail in a virtual tie, the headline will be that it was a virtual tie.
The liberal media and the Democrats love Mitt — for now — the way they loved McCain four years ago. They very much want him to be the nominee because they know he is not electable.
Yep. Rove had on his smug little smirk.
Go Rick Santorum!
