Straw Poll Date Announced

The Republican Party of Iowa announced this morning that the Presidential Straw Poll will be held on August 11, 2007 at the traditional location in Ames.

The straw poll will be the first marker of the 08ers organizational strength and popularity.

Less than 9 months away...

Mitt needs to win this big. Looking through old threads and posts, it would appear that will not be a problem because he has the "best talent on the ground." I would therefore expect that Mitt & Co. MUST win the straw poll comfortably to prove that consensus thought here at the cooler.

blah blah blah McCainiac bullshit expectations game.

McCain is at 30% in the polls nationally and Mitt is around 9%. Who would you say really has the pressure to win in Ames? McCain is supposedly the juggernaut frontrunner in everyones eyes so lets see it.

This is the same anon who has posted this crap on every thread here and over at Krusty. Is it Larson or Roederer?

Boo-hoo, cancer man. Can't you see through all that smoke you are blowing. The CC has always said those national polls are nothing more than name identification and not a sign of organizational strength (see past posts). If that is true, then all the posts saying Mitt has the best organization in Iowa should prove true. I am sure Doug Gross will lead you to victory in August. He had better deliver the straw poll in a big way, or Mitt's little adventure away from the Bay State surely will come crashing down.
