There are only two houses sporting presidential candidate lawnsigns in this small town of about 6000 residents.
Both signs are for Ron Paul.
One might assume that such tiny anecdotal evidence suggests a wide divide in the support for Paul and the other candidates -- with nary a lawnsign proclaiming support for any of the others, but you would be forgiven for not coming to that conclusion, especially if you made your assessment based on coverage in the main street media or as more and more people refer to it -- the corporate media.
The results from Iowa show Paul garnered 10% of the vote and came in fifth on the Republican side. But as Bill Moyers indicated in his interviews with Kathleen Jamieson (Director of the Anneberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania Anneberg School for Communication), Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul, you would not be faulted for thinking that Paul and Kucinich had dropped out of the race for their respective parties' nominations.
