The ‘Magic Number’ That Could Decide Trump vs. Cruz in Iowa

Des Moines, Iowa — 135,000.

That’s the “magic number” to watch Monday night as Republican caucus-goers gather around the Hawkeye State to choose their presidential nominee, according to data collected and analyzed by numerous GOP campaign officials.

    The “Iowa Caucuses” circus is just a feeble attempt at humour by bored farmers etc trying to get past the “nothing interesting ever happens here if you disregard frostbite” winter low point.

    • I find it all mystifying.

        National Review has devolved into a bunch of old ladies reading their tea leaves.

          WFB must be spinning in his grave. Just awful. You could see it coming with the removal of M Steyn.

        -It would seem that Jeri Ryan, who played Seven of NIne on Voyager really is part of the Borg.
        -Kenyan-born until he wasn’t.
        -I guess Jack Ryan didn’t go to the right kind of sex club.
        -Obama is alleged to have frequented gay sex clubs in Chicago and that is hard to prove because his gay lovers have had a nasty habit of dying.

          Donald Young from Rev Wright’s church is one of them
          “Man’s Country”
          “Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel were members of the same bathhouse in Chicago.”

          Just last pm, CKWX “News” (yeah, right) 1130 radio in Vancouver referred to “conspiracy theories” about Obama being Kenyan-born. That’s one hell of a “conspiracy theory” that includes the Anointed One Himself for most of his life.

            O probably was born in Hawaii.. used Kenya born story for tuition aid for Harvard
            O was a citizen of Indonesia which would make him ineligible for POTUS
