In It to Win It

Romney spox tells media conference call ex-MA Guv’s strategy is to win the Iowa caucuses.

Gitcho: “We want to win wherever our name is on the ballot and we’re going to be in Iowa enough to show that Mitt Romney is going to be the best candidate to take on President Obama… As for a strategy, our strategy is to win there.

Romney can survive a loss in Iowa at this point. But the campaign's very skillful managing of expectations there can come undone in a hurry. His Hawkeye State ceiling is probably no higher than 35% — and it might be significantly lower. If Romney is seen as playing in Iowa and loses, his path becomes much harder.
