Oops I meant to put the ones from this year.

Apologies to President Dole. And I guess to Presidents Harkin, Gephardt and Muskie.

5. Hmmm
So you are saying President Dole would have been worse than President HW Bush ... President Harkin would have been worse than President Clinton ... Gephardt would have fared worse than Gov. Dukakis, and Muskie in 1972 would have done even worse than McGovern nationwide? Interesting point you try to make, but don't think I would agree with your opinion - but you are entitled to it if you want to bash on the process or the state of Iowa.

10. 1988?
It's just Wikipedia, but still:
"Bush unexpectedly came in third in the Iowa caucus (that he had won back in 1980), behind winner Dole and Robertson."

So the polls were correct.

"Once the multiple-state primaries such as Super Tuesday began, Bush's organizational strength and fundraising lead were impossible for the other candidates to match, and the nomination was his."
