Iowa Caucus Results Delayed

Hmmmm… Did they hire some officials from crucial Waukesha County?

“The integrity of the results is paramount. We have experienced a delay in the results due to quality checks and the fact that the IDP is reporting out three data sets for the first time. What we know right now is that around 25% of precincts have reported, and early data indicates turnout is on pace for 2016.”

About the three numbers: Iowa Democrats are releasing more information about caucus results than usual this year. There are three sets of numbers we’re expecting:

  • State delegates won: Each precinct sends delegates to county conventions, who then send delegates to the state convention. The “state delegate equivalents” — the number that’ll be the focus tonight — are the estimated number of delegates candidates have won to the state convention based on their results in each precinct.

  • The first alignment: The state Democratic Party will release the total number of people at each precinct that lined up with each candidate at the start of the caucuses.

  • The second alignment: Then, after realignment — the process where those who fall short of 15% are eliminated, with their supporters either choosing a different candidate to back or going home — the state party will release those raw vote totals as well.

    Typical Democrats. Can’t even run a caucus but want to run your healthcare.
    But the GOP caucus ran smoothly.

    Or the city of Milwaukee, which will burn this summer.

  3. Merlin

    Excuse me, comrade. Got a light?

  4. dad29

    Given what’s going to happen in November……..

    Who CARES???

    If you missed the dead tree this morning, today’s lead story was about how “cool” it was that Marquette University hosted a satellite caucus that counts last night for the 7 Iowan Democrats (both students and non-students) who happened to be in Milwaukee last night.  Left wholly unexplored is how many, if any, of those 7 (as well as the president of the Marquette chapter of the College Democrats, who, as a Washington State native, was not eligible to caucus) are also registered to vote in Wisconsin.

    jjf, Leroy, are you still proud of your party?   Shitshow in the midwest!

  7. jjf

    Jason, what are you proud of about yourself?

  8. Jason

    >Jason, what are you proud of about yourself?

    I’m always proud when I don’t have to resort to Deflecting!   Have a good day!

  9. Merlin

    Why is it taking so long to screw Bernie out of his delegates?

  10. jjf

    Jason, the party of personal responsibility…  wants me to be responsible for someone in Iowa?

  11. dad29

    are also registered to vote in Wisconsin.

    They could vote in both places, even if they drive.  It’s the (D) way.

  12. Merlin

    CNN is reporting this afternoon that the Biden campaign may seek a court injunction to stop this afternoon’s planned partial release of the Iowa Caucus results.

    Even if it’s fake news it’s pretty entertaining. It is CNN after all.

    Slow/China/Ukraine Joe wants his money back. Executives for Shadow are tied up in Nevada and have been unavailable for comment.

  13. Jason

    >wants me to be responsible for someone in Iowa?

    Stop projecting dumbass… what I asked was if you’re proud of your stupid donk party… not that you were responsible.   However now that you bring it up, your Party is an end amalgamation of it’s dumb supporters… like you.



  14. Jason

    >Executives for Shadow are tied up in Nevada and have been unavailable for comment.


    Also a subsidiary (well distanced today) of ACRONYM, and both companies are related to former Clinton and Obama staffers.  Also some rumors that BootyGig has a receipt for some $40k worth of SMS advertising from Shadow Inc in the past two months.   Not saying there’s anything shady… but sure isn’t a good way to “Shine a light of transparency”… but rather a shadow of a doubt.    The “Russian Trolls” that are attacking us according to Schiff couldn’t make up stuff this shitshow.  So entertaining.

  15. Le Roi du Nord


    You bet.

    So what if there was a tech error in a Midwestern state primary? The main event is in November, not February.  It is nowhere near the screw-up caused by hanging chads in FL that resulted in the disaster that was bush/cheney.

    You proud of that?

  16. jjf

    Next up, Jason calls me a “poopyhead.”

  17. Le Roi du Nord


    Probably. He has a limited vocabulary.

  18. Mar

    So sad that Le Roi and jjf lack the integrity to say their party screwed up royally. And the national party is just as responsible because they failed to catch Iowa’s stupid errors.
    Just pathetic.

  19. Le Roi du Nord


    For such a highly educated person you sure make a lot of assumptions.  Sure the caucus results were screwed up.  No denying that. But come November do you think it will matter?

  20. Kevin Scheunemann

    This fighting freak show will burn Milwaukee, especially if DNC restores superdelegates to screw the communists out of nomination.

    Awful. Just awful.

  21. Mar

    Le Roi, this issues matters as much as the Trump impeachment.
    In both cases, come next week, who will care?
    So, you are right about that.

  22. Le Roi du Nord


    Don’t you think that comparing the Iowa caucus to trumps impeachment is a stretch?  trump will be forever known as one of 3 US presidents who had articles of impeachment filed against them.  Forever is a long time.

    But I am glad you agree with me.

  23. Kevin Scheunemann


    Since Democrats have destroyed Constitution and lowered impeachment bar so low, every president from here on in may be impeached if president’s party does not hold the House.

    You should be disgusted by Pelosi and shifty Schiff by what they have done.

  24. Le Roi du Nord


    Could you give a factual example?  Or are you just making stuff up again?

  25. Kevin Scheunemann


    On which issue? You are so blind to facts in your liberalism, hard to know which one I need to articulate fitst.

    If we are talking impeachment standard, all you have to read is liberal lawyer for Trump, Mr. Dershowitz, who liberals dragged through the muck despite fact he is a liberal…just a liberal with an actual conscience… against evil revolution.

    When will you speak against liberal evil treason with any conscience you may have?

  26. dad29

    come November do you think it will matter?

    Nope.  The only question will be whether Trump wins 48 or 49 States.

  27. Jason

    >Probably. He has a limited vocabulary.
    Now who’s making stuff up.  Actually, I took your advice to heart and am talking down to the the little minded folks.  I still have some work to do as you’re clearly not comprehending the big boy words yet.


  28. jjf

    Come on, Jason, step up your game and start talking about panties like Dad29!

  29. Jason

    >forever known as one of 3 US presidents who had articles of impeachment filed against them.  Forever is a long time.


    And forever known for being acquitted .  I bet Pelosi doesn’t have enough Acquittal pens. How many millions did she waste again?

  30. Jason

    I guess Leroy thinks this comment of mine is too Childish and Immature as well.   Oh, wait, it definitely falls into the category of what I fixed in his comment.  Hows that hot cup of Acquittal tasting this morning?  Good to the last drop!

  31. Kevin Scheunemann

    The only time Nord takes a moral stand is in his arrogance—who should be excluded from the debate because he is the only adult,and just so smart.

  32. jjf

    There you go, Jason, changing the subject.  I thought you were against that.

    Anyone care to read some criticism of Iowa from the left?

  33. Merlin

    Now the DNC is asking Iowa to recanvass.
