The 2012 Iowa caucus for the GOP presidential candidate has ended and the result is currently being counted, which will come from all the 1,774 precincts throughout the Hawkeye State.

As noted at US news sites on Tuesday, January 3, 2012, Americans started to vote for the GOP presidential candidate in the 2012 election to run against President Barack Obama.

According to reports, all the precincts were closed at 7 p.m. (CT) that day, as the seven Republican hopefuls ended their months of campaign vying for the GOP presidential nomination.

As of this writing, the top three Republican presidential candidates include U.S. Representative Ron Paul, Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum.

Based on the initial unofficial counted votes gathered by CNN live from 22 percent of all the votes, Paul had 6,240 votes, Romney had 6,297 votes, and Santorum had 6,256 votes, all close at 23%.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had 13%, Texas Governor Rick Perry had 10%, Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann had only 6%, while former Utah governor Jon Huntsman had 1%.

Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain suspended his 2012 presidential candidacy last December 3 due to controversies related to women, but strongly denied all the allegations against him.

Later, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney had a close tie, as Ron Paul trailed a bit behind; with the 2012 Iowa caucus final result expected to be announced within hours only.
