Will There Be an Iowa Straw Poll?

National Journal: "Every four years, presidential hopefuls flock to the Iowa State University campus in August to court a small handful of Iowans for the storied Ames straw poll. But if they got their own ballot, some of those candidates might vote to scrap the whole exercise. As would-be 2016 entrants head to Iowa ... and presidential jockeying begins in earnest, Hawkeye State Republicans are genuinely unsure about what will happen to their famed event by the time next August rolls around. Most expect to see big changes at the very least, and potentially no straw poll at all."
