Fix Fans' Iowa Predictions Revisited

With the New Hampshire primaries less than 24 hours away, we (or, more accurately politics producer Sarah Lovenheim) finally waded through all of The Fix community's predictions -- 230+ -- regarding last Thursday's Iowa caucuses.

Remember that we asked for the correct order of finish (with percentages) and a potential story line coming out of Iowa. Below you'll find the winners.

If your name (or washingtonpost.com handle) made the list below, make sure to e-mail me at chris DOT cillizza AT washingtonpost.com and let me know where you want your official Fix t-shirt sent. The t-shirts are being ordered as I type!

Based on the responses we've received prior polls closing in Iowa, Terrymitchell came closest in predicting the Republican results. Her (or his) prediction:

Huckabee: 31 percent
Romney: 27 percent
Thompson: 13 percent

On the Democratic side, more of you correctly guessed the line-up of Barack Obama (Iowa's Democratic winner - 38 percent), John Edwards (29.8 percent), and Hillary Clinton (29.5 percent).

Of your poll predictions, though, only a few nailed the percentages for the big three. "Paulb" came closest:

Obama: 38 percent
Edwards: 30 percent
Clinton: 30 percent

And what about your storyline predictions? Which of them held up after the results came in? Sadly, not many... The two below are among the handful that came closest:

AndyR3: "Hope Floats: Obama wins big!"

boldbooks: "Romney becomes butt of late night jokes for spending so much money and not being able to pull out a win."

Didn't win? There's always tomorrow -- literally. We'll be back tomorrow morning soliciting your New Hampshire predictions.
