      Great article for us on IowaCaucus.com!All about how Ron is leading Iowa, consistently.

      http://iowacaucus.com/2011/10/20/wha...t-you-measure/

      A snippet, but the whole thing is really good:

      Herman Cain may be the flavor-of-the-month in the 2012 Republican presidential nomination race, but Texas Rep. Ron Paul is the one candidate who consistently polls in double-digits in Iowa, has received more itemized individual contributions from Iowans than any other candidate in the field, and has more endorsements from the state’s GOP central committee than any other candidate in the race, according to none other than Gov. Terry Branstad.

      There are three ways of looking at the Q3 picture. The amount of "Money Raised" is a good indicator of support. The amount of "Cash on Hand" shows the liquid spending potential going forward. The amount of "Cash on Hand minus Debt" shows the bottom-line financial situation. Perry and Romney are (not surprisingly) 1st & 2nd in all categories. Ron Paul is a solid 3rd in all the calculation methods. I should also note, Bachman is above Cain in all the categories. Everyone else looks somewhat grim.
      Below I assembled the breakdown for all ten candidates, ranked in order using the three categories mentioned above. I figured it would be good to have this all in one place.
      [edit: I added "Money Spent" - just for fun. RP's spending is second to
      only Romney. This is logical since RP doesn't get the free media time. That's what BTO is all about, after all.]
