Iowa Dems Release Final Tally From Caucuses


The Iowa Democratic Party has finally released 100-percent of the results from Monday's caucuses. The final tally shows Pete Buttigieg narrowly leading Bernie Sanders. As expected, they’re trailed by Elizabeth Warren in third, Joe Biden in fourth and Amy Klobuchar in fifth.

Officials say the were delayed for days because of a coding error in an app used for reporting results. And while the Democratic National Committee has called for a recanvass of the results because of the inconsistencies, Senator Sanders doesn’t see a need.

In fact, he says he’s the one who’s enjoying a "decisive victory." Pointing to his 6,000-vote lead in raw popular votes in the first alignment, he’s downplaying results that show a tiny lead for Buttigieg. They’re separated by one-tenth of a percentage point.

What’s this all mean going into the New Hampshire Primary? Sanders continues to lead a tracking poll less than a week before the New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary. He’s first with 25-percent support in the WBZ/Boston Globe/Suffolk University poll. Buttigieg has moved up to second with 19-percent, while former Vice President Joe Biden is down three points to 12-percent and third place and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is fourth at 11-percent.

The New Hampshire primary is next Tuesday – and tonight, the candidates will face off. The candidates already mentioned will be joined by Senator Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang and Tom Steyer.
