Lewyn Addresses America

A little politics, a little urbanism- I also blog 100 percent on urbanism at and

Iowa results in: Paul finished third, Romney wins, Santorum behind by 8 votes.  I got Santorum surge right, but Romney’s mass media superiority and general air of electability gave him a little more oomph than I thought he had.

I don’t see where Mitt loses now.  He already has NH in bag I suspect since he was already leading there before Iowa’s good news.  Then comes SC, where Gingrich and Santorum try a last stand.  Of course SC is a pretty right-wing state.  But it is also a state that supports front runners (see, e.g., Dole 1996, McCain 2008) even if they are not the most right-wing candidate.

Romney could carry off a fifty-state sweep!
