CNN Iowa Insiders Survey: Two out of three think Romney will win

Washington (CNN) - Almost two-thirds of Iowa's Republican political pros predict that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will win the state's caucuses on Tuesday, but his campaign's margin for error over Texas Rep. Ron Paul is slim.

As the candidates dashed around the state making their closing arguments to a volatile caucus electorate, CNN surveyed 64 Iowa GOP insiders - including state legislators, local elected and party officials, senior advisers to Republican Gov. Terry Branstad, business and conservative interest group leaders, veterans of previous caucus campaigns, and a variety of other party activists - to assess the shape of the GOP race.

    So, this is the prediction of Iowa insiders and NOT Iowa caucus goers. I am sorry, things are not going to turn out this way. Romney is not going to win it!

    I have difficulties to get the logic in this prediction. If more than 40% still say they can change their mind. How can it be two thirds (insiders) think Romney can win? Will they change their mind in favor of Romney?? This is quite impossible and give no weight to the insider's prediction.

    Who are the anonymous "insiders"? Corporations? Koch Brothers? Karl Rove?

    Who are they? Why is everything aboout "anonymous sources"? I want to know who is making the statements that get put on the air over and over and over. Not just rumors. I want facts from reliable, known sources.
