Iowa Caucus Poll

CBS has Hillary ahead of Bernie by 3% --> http://2016iowacaucus.com/hillary-retakes-lead-over-sanders-cbs-newsyougov-poll/

BUT there is also an online poll on that page for folks who find the website and vote --> he's beating her by 15% there (go vote!!)

This is going to come down to turn-out, y'all.

Hoping the millennials come through for us.

1. Putting aside the online poll

 

3% is not a very wide margin. It very well may come out to which group of supporters really wants it that day.

2. More stats -

Sample: 1342 Registered Voters
Conducted: October 15-22, 2015
Margin of Error: ±4.8%

So it's within the margin of error. We need turn-out for Bernie and I think we can accomplish that the same way we did w/Obama - internet presence. Reddit, Twitter etc.

3. Bernie's campaign needs to spend some money educating the

Millennials about how to work a caucus.

Just showing up isn't going to help, from what I understand. I admit that I don't know much about caucusing and I'm not a Millennial. But, I figure that if I don't, and I've been voting for many, many years, then they probably know less.

4. In Texas in 2008 Caucus meant

changing your status to democrat (which I did -I had never before declared for either party), and showing up to sign your name (which I did) - and then I stayed late to count signatures because I had been named co-precinct chair (by the actual precinct chair who wanted some help).

It was a great experience and I encourage you to get involved locally (hey, I even went door to door for Obama here in TX!)

5. Oh - I am involved locally, but my state doesn't have a caucus.

Ours is pretty simple: it's an open primary. Easy to vote in IF you register to vote (and, as a Southern state, yes, the GOP has tried to restrict who can vote with IDs, etc.)

I was just relaying that I thought educating new voters about how and when and where to caucus or primary is key. Many of Bernie's supporters are new to voting.
