in the January 3, 2012 Iowa Caucuses:
Romney--Romney is the presumed front-runner. Not
expected to win the Iowa Caucus, but that may not
impede him as he appears to be the strongest
anti-Obama candidate. Ran for the Republican
nomination in 2008.
Gingrich--Former Speaker of the House. His
candidacy has risen in the run-up to the Iowa Caucus,
largely feeding off of the impending fall of Herman
Cain. Many feel that his personal baggage, including a
well-known affair and the manner in which he divorced
his former wife, will hurt him with many social
do well in libertarian-minded New Hampshire. Ran for
the Republican nomination in 2008.
Cain--Was the surprise front-runner for several
weeks until accusations of sexual harassment and an
alleged adulterous affair caused Herman Cain to
suspend his campaign on Dec. 3, 2011.
Bachmann--Representative from Minnesota,
Bachmann has firm conservative credentials, but
miscues and gaffes have hurt her campaign. May still
do well in the Iowa caucuses.
Jon Huntsman--Former Utah governor and U.S.
Ambassador to China. Considered a real longshot, given
his lack of strong conservative credentials.
Santorum--Former Pennsylvania Senator,
Santorum is a strong religious conservative, but has
failed to make much headway in this campaign.
