Breaking down the vote tally from Iowa

In the closest-ever Iowa caucus, Mitt Romney beats Rick Santorum by just 8 votes, with Ron Paul at a close third. CNN's John King breaks down the GOP vote tally in Iowa with the Magic Wall. Do YOU think Senator Santorum can muster the ground-game in other early voting states to be a serious contender?

    John,
    You are really hung-up on the number of votes Romney got in 2008 versus this year. However you forget to mention that there were fewer candidates then than now. The extra candidates diluted overall numbers to all candidates and I suspect this is what really is the cause for the similar numbers and not the fact that Romney has not gained any ground in Iowa.
