Well, Ron Paul came in fifth in the Iowa Caucus-he got a little fewer votes than John McCain, and he actually got almost 4 times the votes that Rudy Giuliani did, even though Giuliani raised almost six times as much money as Ron Paul did! http://politics.nytimes.com/election-guide/2008/results/states/IA.html Go, Ron Paul, GO! And actually, in most Iowa counties, he came in third, and in quite a few he came in second-not really a bad showing, when it gets down to it. And kudos to the New York Times for not going out of their way to ignore him, like a lot of the media is doing. They also have a very interesting layout/profile on him http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/p/ron_paul/index.html Take a look at the final results on that first link, and especially the county-by-county map. Very interesting. And Dennis Kucinich didn't get a single vote, so it doesn't look good for him. Of course, Iowa is mainly a Republican state, but the caucus is still a pretty good measurement of how much support both party's candidates have.
