Politically Speaking: Can McCain win Iowa?

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

John McCain is wrapping his Cedar Rapids campaign stop, in which he
brought vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin this morning. McCain
talked about a host of issues, but yesterday in Sioux City State Sen.
Steve Warnstadt and the Iowa Democratic Party held a press conference
as a preemptive strike. Warnstadt noted McCain's opposition to ethanol
incentives for an industry that's greatly impacted the Iowa economy,
saying it's something voters need to remember. Polls have shown McCain
trailing in Iowa, and this weekend we'll release a Journal/Lee Poll
conducted through yesterday of 600 likely Iowa voters. As McCain-Palin
fight to win Iowa's seven electoral votes, it's worth noting that he
didn't win any of the 14 Northwest Iowa counties in the January Iowa
caucuses, Republicans favored other men at the time.
