Iowa Caucuses

Iowa Caucuses

An analysis of the outcome of the first caucuses in the Republican presidential nominee race.

After months of rallies and debates, the Republican presidential nominee season finally gets underway. We'll have an analysis of the outcome of the Iowa caucuses - the first contest in the race, and traditionally a high intensity battleground. Our panel of experts will assess what the outcome will mean for the nominee hopefuls. Will Mitt Romney break through his glass ceiling of 25% or will Ron Paul or Rick Santorum steal victory?
