All eyes are on Iowa right now and the Iowa Straw Poll to be held on Saturday. The Iowa Straw Poll has always been a crucial bellwether for the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses. It can turn a candidate into an instant contender – or crush any hope of future success with a poor showing.
This year, the Iowa Straw Poll is more important than ever.
Right now, columnists, TV pundits, talk radio hosts, and national media commentators are all looking to the Iowa Straw Poll to see which candidate or candidates have what it takes to take on Mitt Romney and win.
With Ron Paul’s record of never toeing the establishment line, he is the last candidate they want to acknowledge as a top contender.
