2 winners tonight: the Republican Party and Joe Biden

Biden was probably going to finish 4th or even 5th, and the resulting narrative would have been devastating.

Meanwhile, the Republican Party must be positively giddy. The Democratic Party looks incompetent and conspiracy theories will lead to people not trusting the process.

15. Anecdotal, but

 

based on what I saw at my precinct tonight and what I'm hearing from some others, I'm thinking people are going to be shocked at Biden's results. I also think that Klobuchar will do better than expected. But from what I'm hearing in my area is that Pete is doing very well.

My precinct ended up with 3 delegates for Pete, 3 for Klobuchar, 2 for Warren, and Sanders just barely achieved viability after the second alignment and got 1. Biden got none. There were only 4 people in the Biden camp at the first alignment - not viable. I think 3 of those 4 went to Klobuchar.

In a neighboring precinct, I'm told that Pete had nearly half of all the people in attendance at the first alignment.

Iowa City is the most liberal spot in Iowa, and I heard that one precinct down there was all about Sanders and Warren.

Again, just personal stories, but from some of the talk I'm hearing, I don't think Biden is going to be in the top 3.

19. No, sorry, I wasn't very clear.

 

Iowa City is the most liberal. I saw something online about that precinct. I am not from there. I am from a red county in the northeast corner of Iowa. In fact, our county chair even stated tonight that our county runs about 22% Democratic and 45% Republican. The other anecdotes I mentioned were from my county and the neighboring county (which is a bit more liberal than mine).

24. There are well over 1000 sites

 

And with polls with different leaders, and everyone so close to 15%, each candidate will fail to make viability in many locations.

Remember election day 2004 when everyone was hyped up believing exit polls, line lengths, and other eye witness reports - certain that Bush was going down? The truth is in the big picture, which is obscured at this point. The only remotely useful information we have are the entrance polls, which suggest a very tight race.

We are Jon Snow - out in the cold knowing nothing

55. Based on campaign statements

 

Buttigeig declared victory.
Sanders is contesting that declaration
Warren said she is running close with Pete and Bernie
Klobuchar said she's running close w/ Biden

To me that reads as follows:
Buttigeig
Sanders
Warren
Biden
Klobuchar

Nothing scientific, just sort of logic and decoding their statements.

38. Is the media talking about Biden failing to finish in the top 3? No. Because...

 

...we still don't have the results. And at this point hardly anyone will give a shit about the results. Biden, I'm sure, is quite pleased that the only narrative coming out of Iowa is that Iowa was a shitshow, that the results - if we ever get any - can't be trusted, and it's off to New Hampshire. No headlines today about Biden performing poorly. No headlines about Sanders or Buttigieg winning.

Biden and the Republican Party are both smiling from ear to ear.

It would have made all the sense in the world for her to choose him though. Frankly I can't imagine she wouldn't have offered it.

Reagan chose Bush after a nasty race. And he did give her the prime cabinet post, she might have actually preferred that as it allowed her to achieve things on her own and leave in the 2nd term to focus on running and the option of distancing herself from the administration if necessary.

40. Of course caucuses should be banned. Of course we shouldn't start with 2 of the whitest states.

 

But narrative matters. Headlines about Biden finishing 4th or 5th, as opposed to headlines all about the shitshow, would have been very damaging. Next thing you know, he's finishing a distant 3rd or 4th in New Hampshire. Then a poor showing in Nevada. Then people in South Carolina start to abandon ship. Everyone is reminded of how poorly Biden's past attempts have gone. It's a snowball effect.

Actually, it could still happen, but the shitshow helps spare Biden to a large extent. Instead of a primetime announcement on election night, we've had nothing but reports about the screwups. Now we're finally getting results, but it's not clear how many will actually care about or trust the results.

31. There's a good point to that.

 

Joe’s strategy has been to tread water until SC and Super Tuesday when he can run up big totals in the delegate-rich south.

Last night’s debacle means that if Bernie wins and Joe does poorly, Bernie doesn’t get all the great PR and “BERNIE WINS BIG” headlines because the news will have already moved onto the SOTU, followed by the impeachment vote on Wednesday, followed by the New Hampshire debates.

34. What the republicans didn't win anything. It just shows that they are desperate.

39. I don't know about that. We already have Trump's campaign manager

 

saying last night that if they can't even run a caucus how can they be expected to run this country.

42. Yep, and anything that undermines faith in the process benefits Trump and the GOP.

51. The caucus system is a sham, and discriminates against those with mobility issues, and those

 

who cannot spend several hours in a caucus hall

56. I would like to see official results.

 

I think Bloomberg is looking the best. If Bernie comes in first, it will be questioned. But this is Iowa, is it really that big?
