Iowa Caucus Results 9 PM

Here are the results from the Iowa Democrat Party website:

SENATOR BARACK OBAMA : 37.53%
SENATOR JOHN EDWARDS : 29.88%
SENATOR HILLARY CLINTON : 29.38%
GOVERNOR BILL RICHARDSON : 2.11%
SENATOR JOE BIDEN : 0.95%
UNCOMMITTED : 0.13%
SENATOR CHRIS DODD : 0.02%
PRECINCTS REPORTING: 1732 OF 1781
(PERCENTAGES ARE STATE DELEGATE EQUIVALENTS.)


According to the Iowa GOP website, Romney took the eastern and western counties in the state while Huckabee took everything in between. In the Huckabee counties, the pattern was fairly consistent with Huckabee taking first place followed by Romney in second and Thompson a distant third. The counties won by Romney were far less consistent with Huckabee, Paul, McCain, and Thompson frequently swapping places. As the night wanes, Huckabee's lead expands. No other candidate has taken first place in a county, and there are only a few left to report.

I'm having a hard time finding total numbers for the Republicans, but with 1,168 of 1,781 precincts reporting, Huckabee has 25,776 to Romney's 18,925.

According to Fox News it's Huckabee at 38%, Romney at 23%, Thompson at 14%, McCain at 12%.

Ron Paul won Jefferson County, home of the Maharishi University. They had bumper stickers "Levitate for Paul".

Look at the map-the media template is ridiculous. Huck had a huge margin in Polk County, where there are virtually no rural evangelical women, yet the media template describes Huck's supporters as primarily "rural evangelical women".

Huck dominated Iowa's economic center, Polk County and the Golden Circle that surrounds it. Huck dominated because he knows what we know, everything good for Principal or Wells Fargo isn't necessarily good for the rest of us.

Also, Huck had prominent local pols like Bob Brownell (Supervisor) and David Oman (big time deal broker) out working for him also.

The national media has this one way wrong.
