An Iowa-sized yawn

Iowa

Apparently, this (figure 1) is final for state delegate equivalents. The Associated Press has apparently not provided final results for the popular vote; that page still indicates results for one precinct shy of 100 percent.[1]

If there are no requests to recanvass or recount, Buttigieg would be the winner of the Iowa caucuses. Though Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir told CNN Sunday night that the Sanders campaign plans to ask for a partial recanvass of the results on Monday.

“You can expect us to be asking the Iowa Democratic party for a recanvass of the discrepancies that we have identified and found tor them. We’ll be searching for and identifying even more. It’s been handled incompetently from our perspective, and we’ll be asking them to take a look at some of these obvious discrepancies that have affected our count and I think after it is all said and done, it should be the case that we have the same number of national delegates as Pete Buttigieg,” Shakir said.

According to the Iowa Democratic Party, he will claim 14 delegates. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will receive 12, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren will get eight, former Vice President Joe Biden will receive six, and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar will get one.[3]

It doesn’t seem like this is getting a lot of coverage. I think probably everyone holds these results in low esteem.

There is a new blog post, written before the results above, entitled, “The Democrats don’t need ‘election interference’.”
