Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum received 34 votes more than former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney in this month's Iowa caucuses, the Des Moines Register reported Thursday.
The totals reported just after the Jan. 3 ballots had given Romney a narrow, eight-vote win over Santorum. It gave an early boost to Romney's bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

I think we could re-count who knows how many times and who knows what the outcome might end up? It probably doesn't make one bit of a difference in the end. Romney was never expected to do anything in Iowa.

According to the party they are simply going to call it a tie. That is probably the best thing so we can all get on with the rest of the campaigning.

When Romney "won" by 8 votes it was a win.

Now that Santorum "won" by 34 it is a tie.

Why is that?

I want to know, why 8 precincts in Iowa will NEVER be reported???

What is up with that?
Are those the 8 Precincts Ron Paul dominated?

an iowa caucus, where they allow cross party voting, is really irrelevant to the general election.

who knows what factors went into play in that caucus?

i wish they had the nominating process done nationally in one day and then the media would not have time to "spin" towards a particular candidate-as they are doing now with gingrich. (oooh, it's all gingrich winning the debates and rising in the polls now....."the conservative choice" --according to our esteemed media pundits)

keep in mind gingrich is the man who said that he would rather see obama win the election than ron paul-and that should tell americans something!

fiscal conservatives better wake the heck up, or they are going to wind up with another 4 years of financial disaster-IF this country can even handle trillions of dollars of misappropriated spending-like we are seeing now.

don't forget that the pension funds are being RAIDED right now to continue just this level of spending (what about when more spending is requested, and more interest payments?)

Do you have to ask?

This whole election has been choreographed in advance and each participant is playing their assigned part, except for Ron Paul. He won't play the game and that's why he's the target from all sides and the paid media..

So what? It is still a TIE. The number of delegates awarded will not change over a few votes. Eight precincts cannot be recounted so this is a waste of time.
