Yet here is a VERY important reminder about looking ahead to the general election: It was at this time exactly four years ago that Washington and President Obama were rocked by the debt-ceiling crisis. Remember that? Indeed, in our NBC-Marist poll of Oct. 2011, Obama’s approval rating in the Hawkeye State was at 42%, and his approval in New Hampshire was even worse – at 38%. And guess what: Obama ended up winning both states in the 2012 general election pretty easily, it turns out.
Now, the caucus in Iowa is the all-important kickoff to election season, followed closely by the first primary in New Hampshire. And New Hampshire is arguably equally important, as it either affirms the frontrunner decided in Iowa or tempers the results of the first event with a different outcome.

I know Bernie looks exciting and all, but I still kind of think he's going to turn out like the Democrat version Ron Paul.
I wonder how Ron Paul did in Iowa and New Hampshire compared to the other candidates at that time?
