Fickle Iowans and a consistent message give Santorum a chance to win

By Chris Moody

ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa — In the final hours before Iowans make their choice for the Republican presidential nominee, Rick Santorum has been making some of his final stops here in Iowa’s rural, conservative northwest corner. As he makes the last push to the finish, Santorum is clearly hoping to put himself over the top with a region full of his most fervent supporters.

Even though he has invested more of his time in the state–hosting more than 350 town halls, at least one in each of Iowa’s 99 counties–than any of his competitors, Iowa voters are only coming around to the Santorum cause. The final Des Moines Register poll taken before the caucuses showed Santorum trailing Romney and Ron Paul, but rising fast. There are several reasons why Santorum is just now beginning to resonate here.
