Expectations Grow for Romney Victory in Iowa

Politico reports that Mitt Romney "has carefully tempered expectations in Iowa all year, visiting only a handful of times and saving the bulk of his television spending for the final weeks of the race. But as a crowd of conservative opponents keep the anti-Romney vote divided, his odds of a victory in the state that humbled him four years ago have never been better."

Wall Street Journal: "Mitt Romney isn't about to predict victory in Iowa, the state that tripped him up four years ago. But he and his usually staid campaign are taking on a swagger not seen all year."

Washington Post: "With a week to go before voters provide the answer that Romney didn't, the former Massachusetts governor appears to have about the same level of support as four years ago -- only this time that could be enough to win Tuesday's contest and put him on a path to quickly lock up the Republican presidential nomination."

Los Angeles Times: "After a campaign effort that has defied convention and angered top Iowa Republicans, Mitt Romney is well-positioned to emerge as a big winner in Tuesday's presidential caucuses."
