After Utah votes in June there will have been 2,265 delegates won in the Republican Primary season.
So far (after Iowa) 28 have been won, a whopping 1.24% of the total. By all sane points of view this race is a million miles from being over and yet Michele Bachmann has withdrawn indicating that the "people of Iowa have spoken clearly". Well sure, but they are the only ones for crying out loud.
Rick Perry seemed on the verge of doing the same thing, but decided to give it the old college try and stick around at least through South Carolina.
So why do the people of Iowa (apparently) speak so clearly for the rest of the country?
In the entrance polls before the caucus we learned that an amazing 46% of the voters decided on who to vote for within just a few days of the caucus and over 1/3 of that vote went to Santorum, so in other words... he got very, very lucky. How could so many voters in Iowa have just made up their minds? Are you kidding me? These candidates have lived in your state for the last six months and half of you woke up on Tuesday, flipped a coin and voted for Santorum, unreal. Sheeple, yes sheeple.
In South Carolina, Rick Santorum was getting 4% (at best) in any poll before Iowa voted. In two polls after Iowa he is averaging 22%, that is meteoric and can only be explained by one thing... yup, you guessed it, sheeple.
Oh, nevermind, just go back to grazing.
