The Iowa Caucus completely imploded Monday night after hours of complicated roll-calls and confusing procedures, with Democratic Party officials refusing to release the results they claim are completely “accurate.”
“The Iowa Democratic Party (IDP) still has not reported official vote totals in the critical Iowa Caucuses as of early Tuesday morning, in a largely unexplained and unprecedented delay that has raised questions about the legitimacy of the contest — and Democratic campaign officials are livid,” reports Fox News.
“We found inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results,” the IDP said in a statement near midnight. “In addition to the tech systems being used to tabulate results, we are also using photos of results and a paper trail to validate that all results match and ensure that we have confidence and accuracy in the numbers we report. This is simply a reporting issue. The app did not go down and this is not a hack or an intrusion. The underlying data and paper trail is sound and will simply take time to further report the results.”
Multiple candidates -including Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, and Pete Buttigieg- declared victory without the results.
The Democrat Caucus is an unmitigated disaster. Nothing works, just like they ran the Country. Remember the 5 Billion Dollar Obamacare Website, that should have cost 2% of that. The only person that can claim a very big victory in Iowa last night is “Trump”.

President Trump mocked the disaster on social media; writing “The Democrat Caucus is an unmitigated disaster. Nothing works, just like they ran the Country. Remember the 5 Billion Dollar Obamacare Website, that should have cost 2% of that. The only person that can claim a very big victory in Iowa last night is Trump.”

INSIDERS: Joe Biden in Serious Danger of ‘Crippling Defeat’ in Iowa Caucus
Democratic insiders are raising serious concerns that former Vice President Joe Biden is in danger of a “humiliating defeat” in the upcoming Iowa caucus; further damaging his perception as the frontrunner for his party’s nomination.
“With fewer than 100 days until the Feb. 3 caucuses, Biden is failing to spend the time with small groups of voters and party officials that Iowans expect and his campaign’s outreach has been largely ineffective, according to 11 senior Democrats in the state. They worry that could send Biden to a crippling loss behind Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg, who have highly organized campaigns in Iowa, said the Democrats, most of whom spoke on condition of anonymity to speak candidly about the campaign,” reports Yahoo News.
“I think it’s fair to say if action isn’t taken soon, you’re going to find that a person who was 7 or 14 points behind Biden will be breathing down his neck or actually ahead of him,” said Kurt Meyer, chairman of the Mitchell County Democratic Party. “There’s still time because the caucuses are not on Oct. 27, but action needs to be taken.”
A humiliating defeat in Iowa would not likely end the former Vice President’s 2020 campaign, but would seriously damage his public perception going into future races.
“The baseline here is we feel really good about what we’re doing,” said Pete Kavanaugh, Biden’s deputy campaign manager. “We’re laser-focused on two things: Recruiting volunteers and precinct captains and talking to voters.”

Project Veritas released another explosive undercover exposé of Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign last week; showing two more field organizers calling for “violence against property” and dismissing the horrors of the Soviet Union’s brutal gulag prison system.
“A Lot of Those People Who Do That Kind of Work, are…Their Politics Fall Well Outside of the American Sort of Norm. So, They’re Marxist-Leninists, They’re Anarchists, They’re These Types of Folks, and um, and They Have More of a Mind for Direct Action, for Engaging in Politics Outside of the Electoral System,” said one field organizer.
“A Lot of the Stories We’re Told in the United States About, You Know, the Gulags and the Persecution of the Kulaks and Things Like That are Exaggerated…We Certainly Don’t Have, uh, a Straight Perspective on That Stuff Here in America,” he added.
“In a new video released today by Project Veritas Action Fund (PVA), two South Carolina Field Organizers for the Sanders Campaign, Mason Baird and Daniel Taylor, are secretly recorded admitting that the Sanders campaign attracts ‘truly radical people.’ They are also recorded brushing off the human rights atrocities committed by the Soviet Union and planning violence as a back-up plan depending on the outcome of Sanders’ election effort,” writes Project Veritas.
