With the Iowa caucuses just a couple of weeks away, we thought it would be fun to host the 2012 GOP Nomination Elimination Match.

Round 1 of the tournament featured all 7 GOP Presidential candidates facing off in an 8 seed tournament with “None of the Above” being seeded in the 8 slot. It is a single elimination tournament. (Click here to download a printable tournament bracket so you can play at home!)

In Round 1, #1 seed Newt Gingrich defeated #8 seed “None of the Above” with 57% to 43%. #4 seed Bachmann defeated #5 seed Perry with 60% to 40%. #2 seed Romney beat #7 seed Huntsman with 58% to 42%. And in the upset match-up, #6 seed Santorum defeated the #3 seeded Ron Paul with 55% to 45%.

Voting for Round 2 begins today and concludes on Wednesday, December 28. On that day, we will announce Round 2 winners and begin the Championship round of voting.

We chose the seeds using the Real Clear Politics average of nationwide polls to determine who would be seeded #1 through #7. We chose the #1 seed as the current leader in the polls as of December 15.
