Iowa caucuses: The Fix prediction contest!

at 11:40 AM ET, 01/03/2012

The Iowa caucuses are here! Between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. eastern time, Iowans will gather across the state to pick the man (or woman) that they believe represents Republicans’ best chance to knock off President Obama next November.

But before Iowans tell us what they think, we want to hear what you think. In the comments section below, offer your prediction on who will claim the top three spots — with percentages! — in tonight’s voting. As a tie-breaker, offer your prediction on what the overall turnout for the Republican caucuses will be.

All predictions are due by 8 p.m. eastern time and must be submitted in the Fix comments section to be eligible to win. The prize? An official Fix t-shirt, of course! (Not to mention the untold rewards of having your name mentioned in a Fix post.)

Need to study up before making your prediction? We’ve got the 6 counties to keep an eye on, an Iowa caucus primer, what the latest polls are telling us and even the Iowa political tweeters to follow!

Happy predicting!
