Enter the White House 2012 Iowa Straw Poll Prediction Contest.

Win a WH12 mug!

Bookmark and Share    The only predictions on the Iowa Straw Poll that White House 2012 has offered are those of WH12 guest contributor Steve Deace.  I tend to have faith in Steve’s prognostication which was as follows:
  1. Michele Bachmann (21%)
  2. Ron Paul (18%)
  3. Tim Pawlenty (15%)
  4. Rick Santorum (13%)
  5. Herman Cain (9%)
  6. Mitt Romney (8%)
  7. Rick Perry (7%)
  8. Newt Gingrich (4%)
  9. Sarah Palin (3%)
  10. Thaddeus McCotter (1%)
  11. Jon Huntsman (1%)

However I see the numbers being just a touch different:

  1. Michele Bachmann (21%)
  2. Ron Paul (18%)
  3. Tim Pawlenty (15%)
  4. Rick Santorum (14%)
  5. Mitt Romney (9%)
  6. Herman Cain (7%)
  7. Rick Perry (6%)
  8. Newt Gingrich (4%)
  9. Sarah Palin (4%)
  10. Thaddeus McCotter (1%)
  11. Jon Huntsman (1%)

The main differneces being that Romney does better than expected and comes in a head of Herman Cain, and Sarah Palin does a touch better than expected.

But White House 2012 wants to know your predictions.

So I ask you to copy and paste the list of candidates above and replace those candidate totals with your own predictions, then paste those rsults in the comment section of this blog.  But to make things a but more interesting and to avoid any ties, we also ask that include the names of any of the candidates who you believe will drop out of the race within the next two weeks as a result of their poor showing in the Starw Poll.  I predict that Herman Cain will drop out. 

The winner which will be determined in two weeks, will receive the following excusive White House 2012 mug.

Predictions must be submitted no later than 6:00 pm (est).
