The news media will report that Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum came out on top of the Iowa Caucuses last night. They pay attention to the raw vote count coming in last night as the caucuses were ending, but they fail to mention the fact that 3 men tied for first place last night in the delegate count which are the numbers that matter the most in winning the Republican nomination.

Look past the raw vote total and you will see the number of delagates awarded to each of the candidates. Paul, Romney, and Santorum each got 7 delegates from last night caucuses.
Also pay attention to the 3 unpledged RNC delegates. If Ron Paul's strategy payed off last night his supporters who stuck around to be elected delegates to the conventions at the county and state levels could be the 3 unpledged delegates to Tampa for the National Convention.
Don't let the national media twist the story around and pass the word around that Ron Paul was one of the winners last night in the Iowa Caucuses!
