    The situation in Iowa is very rough for the democrats as their app failed on the night of the Caucasus. “The Iowa Democratic Party said Monday night that results from the state’s first-in-the-nation caucus were indefinitely delayed due to ‘quality checks’ and ‘inconsistencies’ in some reporting.” AP News. On the Republican side, incumbent President Donald Trump won the Republican caucus with 97% of the vote. Iowa GOP

    Both sides criticize the reporting failure and the caucus model in general:

    “At a moment when public faith in American institutions is declining, what could be more fitting than a colossal screw-up in counting the votes for the very first election of the new presidential election cycle?”

    The left are frustrated at the entire point of the caucuses, let alone this debacle.

    “The caucuses — especially in this cursed year — demand hours of commitment. This limits the number, and kind, of people who can attend, despite Iowa Democrats allowing satellite caucuses this year. Many people who work at night still cannot attend. People who care for children or other relatives cannot attend. People who have other commitments cannot attend. Those who cannot attend tend to be lower income, of course, and those people are supposedly the base of the Democratic Party. It’s madness to effectively exclude them from the caucus process… It’s time for a change.”

    “For six months, some of President Trump’s most implacable foes have invested great hope in two Republicans — former Rep. Joe Walsh and former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld — who are challenging the president for the GOP nomination. Could they do some damage to Trump’s re-election prospects? Tonight, in Iowa, that hope was put to a first test. It failed… 

    “Trump won 97.16 percent of the vote, to Walsh’s 1.08 percent and Weld’s 1.27 percent. Others — write-ins of various people — totaled 0.47 percent. It was [a] striking show of strength for the president. Beyond that, turnout was high for a year in which an incumbent president is assured of re-nomination… The last time there was a non-competitive GOP caucus, that is, a caucus with an incumbent president, was in 2004, when President George W. Bush was in the White House. That year, about 8,000 Republicans showed up for what were essentially meaningless caucuses. This year, the turnout was 32,004.”
    Byron York, Washington Examiner

    “Only one candidate was truly able to declare himself victor on Monday night. ‘Big WIN for us in Iowa tonight. Thank you!’, tweeted President Trump.” Matt McDonald, Spectator USA
