In the US, presidential candidates are chosen by political parties via primary elections, caucuses or state conventions and a national convention. Since 1860, either the Republican or the Democratic party candidate has won the election, although there have been third-party candidates from time to time that influenced the outcome of the election to varying degrees. In recent years, the nomination has been decided by primaries and caucuses prior to the national convention.

That was a great game. England won the match.

In the 2012 Iowa Caucuses, Mitt Romney was the victor with 25% of the total voters, or 30,015 votes. However, he only won by 8 votes! Rick Santorum came in a close second with 30,007 votes, or 25% of the total voters as well. Ron Paul was also not too far behind with 22% of the votes, or 26,219 total. In fourth place was Newt Gingrich with 14% of the votes, or 16,251. In fifth place was Rick Perry with 11% of the votes, or 12,604 votes. In sixth place was Michele Bachmann with 5% of the votes, or 6,073 votes. She later announced that she was dropping her candidacy as a result of the Iowa Caucuses. In seventh place came Jon Huntsman who got less than 1% of the votes, a total of 745. However, this was expected because Huntsman did not campaign in Iowa.

The Iowa caucus is an electoral event in which residents of the U.S. state of Iowa elect delegates to the county convention to which their precinct belongs in a caucus. There are 99 counties in Iowa and thus 99 conventions. These county conventions then select delegates for both Iowa's Congressional District Convention and the State Convention, which eventually choose the delegates for the presidential nominating conventions (the national conventions). The Iowa caucus is noteworthy for the amount of media attention it receives during U.S. presidential election years: Since 1972, the Iowa caucus has been the first major electoral event of the nominating process for President of the United States. Although only about one percent of the nation's delegates are chosen by the Iowa state convention, the initial caucus has served as an early indication of which candidates for President might win the nomination of their political party at that party's national convention. The caucuses are closely followed by the media and can be an important factor in determining who remains in the race and who drops out. However, the only non-incumbent candidate to win his party's caucus and go on to win the general election was George W. Bush in 2000. Neither Reagan nor Clinton won prior to their first terms. No incumbent President has run opposed in his own party's caucus since Jimmy Carter in 1980. There is a debate over the effectiveness and usefulness of caucuses in Iowa. One criticism is that the caucuses, especially the Democratic caucus, are a step backwards from the right to a secret ballot. Democratic caucus participants (though not Republicans, whose caucuses vote by secret ballot) must publicly state their opinion and vote, leading to natural problems such as peer pressure from fellow neighbors and embarrassment over who his/her real pick might be. Another criticism is that the Iowa caucus lasts two hours, preventing people who must work, who are sick, or must take care of their children from casting their vote. Absentee voting is also barred, so soldiers who come from Iowa, but must serve in the military lose their vote. Additionally, the representation of the caucus has been questioned due to traditionally low turnout. Others question the permanent feature of having caucuses in certain states, while perpetually ignoring the rest of the country. I hope this helped.
