Wow — Iowa brought some semi-surprises.

I wasn’t so much shocked as disappointed in the Republican results; Iowa is known to have a strong evangelical Christian base, and therefore, voted with the Baptist preacher. What did really surprise me was their endorsement of Obama. The media are calling it a "desire for change," which gave the young, relative newcomer the nod.

New Hampshire will be a new day. Historically, the state has been more concerned with fiscal than social issues, so I’m guessing that the results will be somewhat different.

However, I found a neat electoral map with each state’s electoral votes and primary dates.  Enjoy.

    More importantly, New Hampshire’s is an open primary. This will be the first test of the independent vote.

    a quick excerpt, “there’s no denying that both Republicans and Democrats in Iowa chose the two most faith-fueled candidates.”
