2. Yes

 

And there should be a national primary, some states voting ahead of others is not equitable.

3. of course it is, and has been for a while

 

Democrats in Iowa are considerably more liberal, more affluent, and more white than the Democratic electorate at large. And the caucus system is patently unfair. For that state, using that system, to have so much (alleged) influence is absurd.

5. Ideally the first states to vote would be the swingers.

 

let everyone see who has the strongest chance of taking it home right out the starting gate.

6. Of course it is!

 

It is an unrepresentative state and an anti-democratic process.

8. Yes, indeed it is.

 

This is the last presidential election year where Iowa will even pretend to matter.
