I don't know the rules and regulations of the party, but I wonder... does the party have the option to deny the nomination to the candidate who wins their primary? Are they legally bound to put the winning candidate forward? I don't think they are. I think it's up to their discretion.


Thing is, if they don't, the party loses the support of its registered party members.

In any case, the Republican Party is NOT obligated to support whoever wins tonight. Remember this is just a caucus to see who gets on the primary ballot. It's not the primary. But there has been SO much fuss over this that people are assuming it's a primary.


Iowa doesn't have a primary...they only have a Caucus.

Some of Iowa's delegates to the GOP convention will be indirectly selected tonight...tonight the precinct delegates are elected, they go to the county convention and elect a county delegate, they go to the congressional district convention and elect a district delegate, they go to the state convention and elect a portion of Iowa's states delegates. The remainder of Iowa's states delegates are assigned by Iowa GOP party leaders.

This is the only "vote" Iowa voters have before the general election...there is no primary after this.

Thank you!

You know, this is the first time I've actually examined the voting process more closely. In my local and state and national elections, I look up the candidates and make a decision and then pretty much ignore the rest of the hoopla. Since none of this actually affects the town where I live, it's very interesting to see it in sort of an abstract way.

Hmm. Haven't seen anything much on Buddy Roemer, either.

Watching CNN today has made me realize how much I despise the mainstream media. They are so incredibly biased it just annoys me. FoxNews is even worse, and C-Span I can't watch without getting sleepy -___-

Ooops! My bad! We can tell that I haven't paid much attention to how things work in other states!

It doesn't help that every state does it differently and try to make it as confusing as possible.

Even within the same state...the Dems and Reps do it differently sometimes.

I wish they all just had primaries...this caucus stuff is just silly.

Top tier are Romney Paul & Santorum, no surprise.

I'm keeping an eye on the CSPAN feed and I feel my eyes getting heavier.

Every good show needs some entertainment, and the Huffington Post (AOL) election page is just... well, hard to beat for the entertainment value (right this way, folks!)

So we have "Santorum breaks down crying", and "Santorum head butts camera" (sounds amusing) along with Pat Robertson's "God told me who the next president would be."

Pass the popcorn!

What's up with all these old people at the caucuses? I had expected more younger people. Crud, that's good news for Romney

Let's hope it was just a bunch of young Ron Paul voters running late!!!!

If CNN is admitting the entrance poll as Ron Paul being 'tied' for first, I believe Ron Paul has a chance to upset. This may get interesting.
