Early Returns From Des Moines

A friend who lives in an upscale precinct in Des Moines texts:

There are no Occupiers here, but around 200 people plus some French reporters. Must be a slow news day in Paris.

And, later:

Votes are in:

Romney 69
Gingrich 16
Paul 16
Santorum 16
Bachmann 5
Huntsman 4
Perry 3

This is just one precinct out of many; are those returns typical? Probably not–our friend notes that Huckabee didn’t do well in his precinct four years ago–but I, for one, hope they turn out to be.
