On Wednesday, former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum hit a milestone when he visited the last of the 99 Iowa counties. He is the only Republican presidential candidate to have held meetings in all of the state’s districts.
Unfortunately for him, his efforts do no appear to have paid off. According to the latest Des Moines Register’s poll, Mr. Santorum only gets the backing of 5 percent of those intending to vote in the caucuses. This compares with 23 percent for Herman Cain, who only visited Iowa once, 22 percent for Mitt Romney, who set foot in the Hawkeye State a mere three times since the beginning of the year, and a disappointing 8 percent for Michele Bachmann, who initially pledged to focus her campaign on this state.
