Thursday, January 5th, 2012 430 views

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney beat former senator Rick Santor­um (Pa.) in the Iowa caucuses by just eight votes, a sign of a splintered and increasingly fractious field as the GOP presidential race moves to New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida.

The former Massachusetts governor emerged victorious over former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn.) by a razor-thin margin of just eight votes. The final results, announced early Wednesday by the Iowa GOP, showed Romney had 30,015 votes to 30,007 for Santorum.

Despite the victory, Romney was unable to garner 25% percent of the vote. With 99.5% of precincts reporting, Romney won 24.6% to Santorum’s 24.5%. In all, more than 122,000 straw ballots were cast, a record for Iowa Republicans.

Seven predicted Mitt Romney would are available, first, 5 picked Rick Santorum, one picked one picked Ron Paul and Gary Johnson. They justify Their predictions below.

JONATHAN BERNSTEIN

Predicted winner: Rick Santorum

The polling is subject to such uncertainty that picking a winner from Santorum, Ron Paul and Mitt Romney is just guesswork. But I like playing long shots, so I’ll do that here — keeping in mind that which order those three finish in (if they do take the top spots) is not nearly as important as how high-profile Republicans react to the results.

RICHARD COHEN

Predicted winner: Mitt Romney

In June, Romney had 23 percent of the Republican caucus vote, according to the Des Moines Register poll. In October, he had 22 percent; in November, 16; and last week, 24. Using my patented and quite secret algorithm, Romney has averaged 21.5 percent, which should be enough right there to win the caucus. But he has improved his numbers since November, and because some people will not admit to pollsters that they will vote for the non-fiery, non-ideological and distinctly non-eccentric Romney, he will undoubtedly do better than his numbers suggest. He’s the clear winner.
