Some Republicans have complained about the Iowa Straw Poll last summer...turnout, technical problems (which delayed results). They've also complained about some of the rhetoric (i.e. trashtalking) of certain President campaigns, particularly John McCain and Mitt Romney.
Even "glass half full" Republicans seem to realize the momentum is not with their party in this Presidential election year right now and they may have their work cut out in changing that. Will these changes change that?
