US Presidential Race: Iowa Caucus Results, February 1, 2016


Final UPDATE:  Hillary Has Problems, Bernie Has Big Mo, Trump Will Win New Hampshire, South Carolina (video above)
  • Trump received more votes than any Republican presidential candidate in Iowa history other than Cruz. Cruz won it. Ted Cruz winning Iowa is not an upset. As we've said all along, Iowa is Cruz's homefield advantage. But he did a damn great job closing. (Joe Scarborough)
  • Bernie Sanders has pulled off the remarkable feat of the night. He has drawn even with Clinton and is within inches of victory. (Joe Scarborough); It's not clear that we'll ever know with absolute certainty who actually finished 1st among Ds in Iowa, and not sure it matters. (David AxelrodUPDATE: “Clinton won with 700.47 state delegate equivalents, or 49.84 percent. Sanders finished in second place with 696.92 ... or 49.59 percent.”
