BLITZER'S BLOG: Political turbulence in Iowa

(CNN) - I’m just back from a couple days in Iowa where I had a chance to sit down with Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. I also spoke with Iowans who are planning on attending Tuesday night’s caucuses. Here are some impressions:

Romney is confident about his chances of winning in Iowa and then in New Hampshire. His campaign’s internal polling is looking good. He’s getting nice crowds on his Iowa bus tour. Things seem to be moving in the right direction for his campaign.

    Ron Paul is good, but his view scare me. Mitt Romney may be front-runner, but will not win to Obama. This idiot is for Corporate Greed, Oil, Lobby, Rich. o.k, It is highly improbable for him to win. More so, Mitt Romney lost to Kennedy in 1994. Shipped Jobs overseas, caused this mess. Obama2012.

    “He’s getting nice crowds on his Iowa bus tour.” Wolf Really

    2008 Obama and Hillary drew thousands of people in their meeting compare to 2008 Romney not even close. Only Ron Paul is doing better

    Past one year media was saying republicans are more enthusiasm than democrats where is that enthusiasm gone now ?

    are there ANY minorities in Iowa or have they been told not to come out since the GOP isn't interested in them anyway?
