Iowans aren't the only ones picking a presidential candidate today. Drudgians, too. The Drudge Report is conducting its own GOP "caucuses" online, and Ron Paul's Internet-friendly supporters aren't letting him down. He leads the pack as of this afternoon with 29%, ahead of Mitt Romney (25%) and Rick Santorum (18%). Inconsequential? Sure. But 200,000 people had voted as of 3:25pm, compared to the approximately 120,000 people who participated in Iowa's 2008 caucuses, notes Fast Company. Click here for a guide to the goings-on in Iowa.
