The important Iowa vote
    The Republican caucus vote in Iowa can sometimes make or break a candidate's bid for his or her party’s presidential nomination.  While it’s not the end-all for candidates, the vote gives an indication of who the front-runners are in the early stages of the campaign.

    The Iowa Caucus is tentatively scheduled for February 1, 2016, so there is still plenty of campaigning ahead for the presidential wannabes.
    Here is the latest poll, conducted last week by KBUR Radio of Burlington, Iowa:
    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker – 18%.
    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush – 12%.
    Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul – 10%.
    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee – 10%.
    Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio – 9%.
    Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz – 8%.
    Billionaire Donald Trump – 7%.
    Retired Neurosurgeon Ben Carson – 5%.
    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie – 5%.
    Former PA U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum – 4%.
    Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry – 4%.
    Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina – 3%.
