Republicans gear up for Iowa caucus

Voters sense party is not cohesive enough to take the electoral victory they believe is theirs for the taking.

     

    Prominent US republicans running for president are preparing for the caucus in Iowa, traditionally the first state to hold polls for deciding who the party nominee will be.

    With the current state of the economy, the republicans believe this is an election they can win. But whether they can present a candidate that the voters believe in is the question.
