As I write, these are the results from Iowa:
Clinton 667 votes
Sanders 656 votes
That's with almost 95% reporting. For the GOP:
Cruz 50,794 votes
Trump 44.561 votes
Rubio 42,294 votes
These votes will change a bit, but it's the numbers that fascinate me. Essentially the fate of the candidates for the Presidency is "winnowed" by about 200,000 people for the GOP, and less than 1500 for the Democrats. These results will remove some candidates, and give some others bragging rights and "Big Mo." Maybe.
What each party does with the results of these caucuses is another matter. Winners and losers are entirely in the eye of the beholders, and their spin doctors. Will this break the election "wide open" for some candidate?
Really, why the hell should it?
The total vote is the population of a not so major metropolitan area. Or, put another way, about 38% of the population of Wyoming.
All I'm sayin'.....
