An Iowa Poll recently showed national Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney (a.k.a. Flopsy Mopsy) and Michele Bachmann (a.k.a. Krazy) leading among the state’s likely GOTP caucus-goers.
The poll, conducted for The Des Moines Register showed Flopsy Mopsy, with support from 23 percent in Iowa. Krazy, who officially launched her campaign in Iowa on Monday, has support from 22 percent.
The results were based on telephone interviews with 400 likely Republican Iowa caucus-goers from June 19 to 22. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points. Which of course means Krazy could conceivably actually be leading in Iowa by 3 or 4 points.
Flopsy has said he’s not planning to run a scaled-down Iowa campaign, compared to the $10-million losing effort he waged in the 2008 caucuses, and that basically equates that he’s not planning to win there, and thus he’s writing it off. Considering how close Krazy is in the poll that might not be a bad idea.
All that aside, how does someone like Krazy even figure in polls? How? She figures because that’s where the GOTP has gone to, somewhere down a long dark rabbit hole to the Mad Hater’s Tea Party.
