4. Tom Tancredo - 1961 votes - 13.7%
Heh. This is a strong showing for a "fringe" candidate, but it won't do Tancredo any good. He still won't get the nomination, because he's too far to the right, and he's also a terrible public speaker. And he isn't a viable potential running-mate for whoever does win the nomination, for those same exact reasons. This fairly strong showing is just a way for Iowans to voice their disgust with illegal immigration. And, seeing as how Iowa is pretty damn far away of the Mexican border, I believe this is a strong indication that illegal immigration will continue to be a very important issue throughout the remainder of this campaign.
5. Ron Paul - 1305 votes - 9.1%
Wow. He's not polling under 1% anymore, now is he? Everyone is just going to have to come to terms with the fact that Ron Paul really does have a significant base of support, as evidenced by his impressive fund-raising and his strong online presence. He won't win the nomination, of course, but I do expect him to be the last candidate to concede, and to give one helluva interesting speech at the GOP Convention (assuming they let him come within 100 meters of a microphone).
6. Tommy Thompson - 1,009 votes - 7.3%
You gotta feel bad for Tommy, the other Thompson. Here's a guy who was elected Governor of Wisconsin (a state that borders Iowa) four times, and made it a point to visit every single one of Iowa's 99 counties. But he still came in sixth. He had recently declared that he would drop out of the race if he didn't come in first or second. Well, he didn't, so goodbye Tommy. Maybe if you're lucky, the next President will be a fellow Republican, and he'll offer you the ambassadorship to Angola or something.
