Romney by eight votes

Instead of white smoke, Iowa is belching thick fog. Mitt Romney has won by, erm, eight votes. At least so we think, the Republicans say that it has to wait until ‘Certified Form E’ will be returned by all the Iowa counties, which will take two weeks, so this gossamer majority may well vanish.

Already some votes have been lost, others miscounted, so I doubt Romney will be doing much of a victory dance today.
