 If you think one vote can`t make a difference, don`t tell that to anyone involved with this week`s Iowa caucuses2. I`m Carl Azuz. Thanks for spending part of your Thursday with CNN Student News.

 
Eight votes -- that was the difference between first and second place for the Republican presidential candidates on Tuesday. Officials think it could be the closest finish ever in an Iowa Republican presidential contest. 
 
These were the top three candidates. Starting from the left, you have former governor Mitt3 Romney, and in the center, former senator Rick Santorum. Both of them got about 25 percent of the vote. But Romney had those eight additional votes, so he is the winner. U.S. Representative Ron Paul, on the right,came in third with 21 percent. 
 
The reactions to the Iowa results started coming in yesterday. Senator John McCain, who was the Republican Party`s presidential nominee4 four years ago endorsed5 Mitt Romney. 
 
U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann, who came in sixth place in Iowa, announced that she`s suspending her campaign. It`s not unusual to see some of the candidates who finish lower in these early contests drop out of the race for the White House.
 
Next up is New Hampshire, which holds its primary next Tuesday. But before we move forward, here`s a look back at Tuesday`s coverage6 of the Iowa caucuses as the night unfolded.
 
No one knows what will happen within the next few hours. One of these seven Republicans could take a step closer to the White House. Others may be forced to drop out of the race after Iowans have their say.
 
Right down here at the end of the hall is where this process really begins and ends. This is a check-in table. As you can see, there are people signing their names and addresses, what have you, and if their name isn't on the list,but if they want to participate in the caucus1, they can simply sign up, register as a Republican, and then they're eligible7 to do so.
 
What you`re looking at right now is the votes being tabulated8, those on each piece of paper is the name of one of the candidates.
 
Here`s a Ron Paul.
 
You can make a projection9, a projection of sorts, not necessarily the kind of projection we normally make. But CNN now projects who will come in third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh. We can`t project who comes in first or second, because you saw how close it is between Santorum and Romney.
 
Mitt Romney is 13 votes ahead of Rick Santorum, 13 votes separate Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, 27,830 to 27,817, 92 percent of the precincts have reported. How close is this? I don`t think it could get much closer.
 
John, one vote separating these two guys as we speak right now.
 
As we speak, and we wait for the final vote to come in.
 
Congratulations, Mitt Romney, winner of the 2012 Iowa caucuses. Congratulations, Senator Santorum, for a very close second place finish. Excellent race here. And congratulations, Congressman10 Paul and all the other candidates in the 2012 Iowa caucuses.
 
Anderson, take a look--the most important number we have right now is the bottom of the screen, 100 percent. That`s what we were waiting for, 100 percent of the precincts have now officially reported the Iowa caucuses. And take a look at this: Mitt Romney -- you see that check. He`s the winner, 30,015 votes; Rick Santorum, second,30,007 votes.Mitt Romney wins by a grand total of eight votes.
