Republican Party Candidates in Four-Way Dead Heat

• www.bloomberg.com

Herman Cain, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are in a dead heat as the top choices for Iowans likely to attend the Jan. 3 Republican presidential caucuses.

A Bloomberg News poll shows Cain at 20 percent, Paul at 19 percent, Romney at 18 percent and Gingrich at 17 percent among the likely attendees with the caucuses that start the nominating contests seven weeks away.

Economic issues such as jobs, taxes and government spending are driving voter sentiment, rather than such social issues as abortion and gay marriage, the poll finds. Only about a quarter of likely caucus-goers say social or constitutional issues are more important to them, compared with 71 percent who say fiscal concerns.

The poll reflects the race’s fluidity, with 60 percent of respondents saying they still could be persuaded to back someone other than their top choice, and 10 percent undecided. Paul’s support is more solidified than his rivals, while Cain’s is softer. All of the major contenders have issue challenges to address.

Iowans are just having some fun with Ron Paul. Bloomberg.com is seeing to it that

Ron Paul is in a so-called four-way dead hit – meaning candidates with dead chances except Romney of getting nominated as official GOP candidate for president..

This headline has an adrenalin effect on a handful of people in Ron Paul’s dream-world. As if they have just taken an Amphetamine booster, they are now chanting "Go Ron … Ron Paul 2012! He can win!

In the next coming Republican Caucuses, Ron Paul is NOT going anywhere. As usual, he will soon drop out.

He can only win the GOP nomination or the election for president when the proverbial crow turns white.

But the rest of the potential candidates might have better voting machine hackers.
