Huckabee Wins Iowa Caucus

Our readers have asked for some coverage of the US Primaries and that is what they are going to get. In the Republican Iowa caucus the best candidate which is Mike Huckabee (right), won! Huckabee won 34.3% of the vote while second placed Mitt Romney won 25.3% of the vote. The other so-called main candidates did not do so well. John McCain came 4th with 13.1% and Rudy Giuliani came 6th (last) with a pathetic 3.5% of the vote.

A candidate can not win the nomination with a good result in Iowa but they can lose it with a bad result and Giuliani looks like he has lost his chance to become the Republican Presidential candidate. The Iowa result is good news for true Conservatives because the contest's two right-wing candidates, Huckabee and Romney came 1st and 2nd. I personally prefer Mike Huckabee to win the Republican Presidential nomination because he is the best right-wing candidate and Romney is a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints - that's Mormon to you and I.

As for the Democrat caucus, Barack Obama won with 37.6% of the vote and favourite Hillary Clinton came 3rd with 29.5% of the vote. On reflection I think this is a good result for conservatives because if Obama does win the Democratic Presidential nomination there is no-way that the electorate of the United States will elect him whereas if Clinton wins the nomination she just might win the Presidential Election in November.
