2008 - Preseason Over, Season starts today

Game 1 starts today, in Iowa. The polls are close over there right now, but they don't matter anymore. Only the election results matter. Iowa's first, then Wyoming, then New Hampshire. We're up the 15th. The real question is how much will the momentum affect the rest of the primaries/Caucuses/Conventions? That's the big question. I think much of it depends on if there is a blowout or a major upset.

Tonight at 7PM Iowa time,(8PM here) the caucuses begin.

Previous results in Iowa:
04 Dem - John Kerry 38%, John Edwards 32%, Howard Dean 18%, Richard Gephardt 11%, Dennis Kucinich 1%
04 GOP - George W Bush unopposed.

00 Dem - Al Gore 63%, Bill Bradley 37%
00 GOP - GW Bush 41%, Steve Forbes 30%, Alan Keyes 14%, Gary Bauer 9%, John McCain 5%, Orrin Hatch 1%

96 Dem - Bill Clinton unopposed
96 GOP - Bob Dole 26%, Pat Buchanan 23%, Lamar Alexander 18%, Steve Forbes 10%, Phil Gramm 9%, Alan Keyes 7%, Richard Lugar 4%, Morry Taylor 1%
