Didn't they pick Obama in '08 and '12?

Obama is not someone I would call a winner. He might be the worst president the US has ever had.

This needs to be higher up. Statistically, this is meaningless. So much for logic.

With Micro$oft counting the votes in Iowa, I wouldn't put this race to rest yet. What I'm saying is the whole fucking thing is suspect.

Nope. There's already direct evidence of vote tampering against Sanders in IA. The fact is that it doesn't matter who we vote for. The one "they" want, as in the one who will "play ball" is going to be the one in office.

Example: W. He did not win the popular vote...yet still got the presidency, after a recorded phone call between him and Gore had him saying "well, my daddy tells me that even though you got the popular, I'm still gonna win."

We. Do. Not. Live. In. A. Democracy.

I actually welcome it. There will be some massive election fraud against Bernie. I hope the Bernie supporters call it out. Ron Paul got schlonged by the rigged election process and nothing has changed since then.

"Schlonged"? Seriously? Cruz won one state that should have gone to him in a landslide by the skin of his teeth, and it's a state that always picks losers. The delegates are pretty much a tie. The media is buried so far up Rubio's ass right now, it's as if he won and Cruz wasn't even on the ballot. All in all, Cruz blew his load on one state and was still underwhelming.

There was a grand total of 6000 votes between Cruz and Trump and One whole delegate. Statistically insignificant.

Downvoats for stating facts?! Must be a lot of people afraid that the result was truly even throughout the top tier candidates, and that Trump is far from out of it.

I'm not too worried, he did pretty well in the state that Cruz bet the farm on. Something is very fucky about Rubio though.

Still, fuck Cruz.

The establishment voters wait around to see which of their candidates to rally behind. They chose Rubio.

The vote totals in the Iowa caucus are embarrassingly low every time. The media should probably stop reporting the results. We let 2k people wield too much influence.

Trump will win NH, but he won't win the nomination.

Cruz and Rubio just proved themselves viable. Trump will never get the 50% of the delegates he needs. The convention will be brokered and they'll send him straight to hell giving the nomination to Rubio.

The end.

That's why you don't piss off over half the party with childish namecalling. More people dislike him than like him and you can't win a nomination from that possition.

Trump has big support in North East and he did well as a New Yorker in Iowa... I don't underestimate him. Either way he has made the history books.

Republicans hold 31 state legislatures to the Dem's 11.

In 23 of those, Republicans also hold the governor's office. 7 for the Dems.

So in almost half of all states, both houses of the legislature as well as the governor's office are held by Republicans. The Dems can say that for fewer than a third as many states as the Republicans can.

Republicans hold both the Senate and House in the Federal government.

They're doing just fine.

Cruz won by a less than stellar margin in his strongest state. It won't be until New Hampshire that we see how he fares in less evangelical places, but it's all but guaranteed it'll be less well than how he did in Iowa; this could easily gimp him once we start hitting the winner-take-all states.

Rubio is off to a good start and we're not in his strongholds just yet, so he could easily do better. However, while he's apt to get the support of any establishment packmates who drop out, he's the only one with delegates so far; he'd have to rely on their voters flocking to him in future contests, which isn't guaranteed.

Carson and Paul haven't yet proven themselves major contenders, but by placing at all they're giving signs they could pick up enough delegates between them for an upset via strategic dropout.

Incorrect. Iowa awards delegates in proportion to how the candidates do in the caucus. Cruz has 6, Rubio and Trump each have 5.

I'm not sure that a 3.3% lead counts as getting "schlonged," but I'd still say that Trump the favorite at this point. Polls from Iowa have shown it to be close for months now, with Trump and Cruz alternating in the lead. I expect that New Hampshire will come out strongly in favor of Trump as polls show him as having a much more significant lead there. I do think that as establishment Republicans drop out of the race Rubio, not Trump nor Cruz, will gain their votes.

Trump also has a huge lead in SC and florida. Iowa has been neck and neck since the beginning. But rubio getting so many votes worries me a bit.

Rubio just got endorsed by a senator from SC.

He's the real opponent, Cruz is gonzo.

It did surprise me. Both Rubio and Sanders did significantly better in the caucus than previous polls, which just goes to show that polls are not the be all end all that the media makes them out to be.
