Hotline Sort: All Iowa, All the Time

December 27, 2011
4) After Gingrich (along with Rick Perry and others) failed to make the ballot in Virginia, The Hotline's Dan Roem noted that there is no write-in option, per state law. Team Gingrich wants the law changed in time for the former speaker to mount a write-in bid, but the Richmond Times-Dispatch notes that "appears virtually impossible, for practical as well as political reasons." 3) According to a Boston Globe poll released on Sunday, Mitt Romney is still in a commanding position in New Hampshire, with 39 percent support. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, is gaining -- though still well behind -- with 17 percent support. Gingrich is also at 17 percent in the survey. 2) It looks like it's Democrat vs. Democrat in the Garden State, where Rep. Steve Rothman will reportedly challenge Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. Last week, a newly approved congressional map placed Rothman in the District of Republican Rep. Scott Garrett. Overall, the map is a significant victory for Republicans, who had previously thought they might lose a seat. 1) Romney is making a late push in the Hawkeye State with a week left to go until the Caucuses. He released a new Iowa ad on Monday, and is taking a three-day bus tour through the state starting on Wednesday. Polling shows a three-way race between Paul, Gingrich and Romney, with many votes still up for grabs. How much will the second-tier conservative candidates -- Perry, Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann -- eat into Gingrich's support? If they pull away enough, Romney could be a very happy candidate come Jan. 3. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, the 2008 winner, sums it up to the New York Times: "If the evangelical vote is splintered and Ron Paul's people aren't going anywhere, Mitt Romney could end up winning the Iowa caucuses as a result. It would not put me on the floor if that happened."
