Mainstream media pundits are now saying Cruz could best Trump, in Iowa. What should we infer?

Taking a quote out of context with the caveat that the entire item is worth at least a quick look:

Just as important, let’s remember who won the last two Iowa caucuses: Santorum in 2012 and Huckabee in 2008. So even if Carson or, less likely, Trump were to finish first in Iowa, it would not necessarily mean he was headed to Cleveland to be the GOP nominee. Remember, Ronald Reagan lost the Iowa Republican caucuses in 1980.

My, but a Cruz win in Iowa would put the gentleman in illustrious company. Right?

Well, at least the quote does credit Iowa in 1980. Give our southern neighbors credit where it is due.
