Buttigieg holds lead in delayed Iowa Caucus with Sanders second


Buttigieg, who is leading the caucuses on 26.9 percent, is a Harvard and Oxford-educated Afghanistan war veteran and served as a mayor of his hometown of South Bend for two terms until January 2020. Amy Klobuchar, who just days ago polled in single digits. The campaigns for Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg have both used Shadow. The party had promised the new app would also mean quicker results, but instead the hours dragged on with nothing to report.

He will leave New Hampshire briefly on Wednesday to raise money in NY. In 2016, only 15.7% of Iowa's voting-eligible population took part in the caucus.

The other 2020 candidates scheduled to appear at the forum in person or by video are Democrats Deval Patrick, Michael Bennet, Andrew Yang and Tom Steyer and Republican William Weld. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), and Sen.

It was a clumsy start to voting.

The uncertainty enraged Democrats anxious it would only strengthen Trump's bid for re-election and prompted some Democratic candidates' campaigns to question whether the results would be legitimate.

But the complete lack of transparency from Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price about when we'll know full results has convinced many people that you can, undermining our ability to encourage people to feel confident participating in future elections.

"And the process of proving that begins here in New Hampshire as we make our way on to states like Nevada, South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states as well", Buttigieg said of the forthcoming contests.

In spite of growing frustrations, Iowa remains a powerful first step in securing the presidential nomination, particularly for Democrats.

Trump took a swipe at the Democrats, 11 of whom are contenders in the state-by-state battle to face him in November. "Was it frustrating? Yes", says Christopher Krebs, who runs the DHS cybersecurity agency that works on election security.

"The failure that was experienced in Iowa really demonstrates the fragility of the election process, and really how little it takes to sow public and candidate distrust in the results". Shadow Inc. also released an apology this afternoon. Romney went on to be the nominee. Buttigieg, a 38-year-old former municipal official, represents the more moderate wing of the Democratic Party. After what happened, I feel like I've betrayed the trust these people put in me, and I'm deeply anxious about keeping them engaged in our political process come November. "And the Iowa Democratic Party needs to check that data, check it again, check it a third time, check it a fourth time, because it's important to get it right", Biden campaign senior adviser Symone Sanders told reporters.

The discrepancy between the final popular vote and state delegates is explained by higher apportionment of state delegates where caucus attendance was relatively low.

"I think Iowa is a dumpster fire", said Dick Harpootlian, a SC state senator and longtime Biden supporter, who served as an Iowa precinct captain for Biden on Monday.

Prior to the caucuses in Iowa - traditionally the first state to vote in presidential primaries - the state party had kept silent about the creator of the data-reporting app, which came under scrutiny after a chaotic delay in the announcement of the results. It said it had verified the accuracy of the collected data and said the problem was not a result of "a hack or an intrusion".

Some local officials reported having trouble using the mobile app to report results from schools, community centres and other locations.
