I had no clue what this was in relation to so I headed to Google.

Oh my God. Not sure the Republicans have hit this level of incompetence recently.

I'm so disillusioned bu US politics by now that it feels like the Republicans can do almost anything now and win.
It doesn't seem to matter how many tax breaks they give to the rich and large companies or how many benefits for average people they cut to pay for them anyone who argues against them will face the barrage of being called socialist or communist and being told that they hate America and want to turn it into Venezuela.

It's sad to see the country turn so hard right and be conned into voting for people who have zero interest in helping anyone but themselves.
Anyone who thinks Trump gives a gooseberry fool about them is sadly mistaken as Trump doesn't even give a gooseberry fool about his own kids let alone an average voter in some random US town.

Well clearly he's fond of Ivanka.

Chaos seems a bit of an over reaction to what is just a delayed result announcement. It's not ideal but don't see why it will make any difference in the long run. Petty in fighting amongst the Democrats and failure to get to get the vote out is why Trump will win in November. That and America being a hard right hyper capitalist gooseberry fool hole.

Yeah if Sanders doesn't get the nom now, the BernieBros won't vote Dem due to these "underhanded shenanigans"

Iowa is in no way representative of the country as a whole. I hope this debacle destroys their reputation and the ridiculous, unwarranted, outsized importance people place on its minuscule 40 delegates.

Just seen a section about this on C4 news, and I'm blown away by the actual pronunciation of Buttigieg. :lol:

I've been saying it "butty-geeg" whenever I've read it up to now.

Nice normal democracy.

Sanders is ahead in votes but down on delegates.

I wonder if Biden might be toast.

Bye bye Sleepy Joe! After all that he falls flat on his face. Brilliant.

The worry is that his supporters, if and when he drops out, split heavily in favour of Warren. I'm really disappointed that she did not drop first as Bernie would have crush it if went. Of course, I think Sanders support is under represented here as the Iowa is very white and he will probably poll higher in more diverse states so hopefully this is just the start.

Was Bloomberg to late to get in to the Primary, or is he just that crap?

I think it'd be good if him and Pete went head to head as we could create a literney of bread based puns.

He missed the entry date for the first 3 races.

Just looked at the polls and Biden seems to be first with Bernie second. Be introducing to see how things play out.

He won't drop out until Super Tuesday, this time next month. If he falls flat there, then we can be reasonably assured that he's done.
