If the Iowa Polls Don't Change ...


Dick Morris describes a scenario that could force Fred Thompson to drop out of the presidential race after Iowa and New Hampshire vote.

Thompson is banking on a Southern strategy, but what if he finishes a poor third in Iowa behind Mike Huckabee, and Mitt Romney wins Iowa and then New Hampshire?

"Republicans would likely panic about the idea of a Mormon candidate and worry about his prospects," Morris writes, "making Huckabee and either Rudy or McCain viable as alternatives. Thompson will be forced out, having lost his position as the socially conservative answer to Rudy."
