    Who was the big winner of the Iowa Caucus?

    On the Democratic Side, I think Bernie Sanders and his supporters are extremely happy that they hung right in there with Hillary. With O'Malley dropping out, he could actually "Win," but it was a virtual tie.

    On the Republican side, the easy answer is Cruz as he cruises past the Donald, but I think Marco Rubio is the big winner. He was just a few points down from Cruz and just behind Trump.

    However, the big loser is Trump, and that's good for America.

    We the people are the losers, because these candidates are all pathetic, and none of them will change the US for the better.

    Let history be your guide, and it is clear that we got here, and here is dismal and getting darker, by using the traditional selection of the candidates and two political parties that at best create gridlock, and at worse all a president to do their job of legislating laws.

      I don't understand your comment as the second "paragraph" is a very scattered run-on sentence. And I don't think all of the candidates are pathetic, I think there a quite a few good candidates, but there are a few that are scary. #TheDonald

      Your failure to comprehend my comment is truly on your side. All should be Allow, and I didn't realize that this was a grammar question.

      @brad No one cares if your grammar is bad but your sentences aren't even coherent; they sound like a drunk child wrote them. For the sake of constructive discourse I'll assume you meant: "Partisan politics cause gridlock that a president cannot fix."

    Pretty much what you said. Sanders was a big winner, even if he came up short a few points. Not quite a David and Goliath story, in that Hillary also lost out the last time she ran, but sort of...
    As for Ted Cruz, a few months ago, no one thought he had a chance in hell of winning anything---but he did, by having a very organized and efficiently run campaign. So in my mind, Cruz is a big winner, whereas Rubio is where most people thought he would be.
    So....lets see what happens in New Hampshire, where the demographics are quite different.

      Frankly, NO ONE wants Hillary & Bernie Sanders would be a WORSE president than Obama.

      The progressives can't get enough of Clinton & Sanders. I wouldn't vote for either one, but some go for the promise of  a social order that is supposedly fair. You and I know what socialism does to nations, and it ain't pretty.

      Actually, you are wrong, Savvy.  Hilary won Iowa.

      Yes, I know she won, but I think of Sanders as the big winner because he held his own. Also, at least Sanders is authentic, unlike Hillary, who is a liar and who has a black soul.

      I would argue that A LOT of people want Hillary and a lot of people want Bernie. If the younger generation (my generation) actually goes out and votes, Bernie would win in a landslide, against anyone. But sadly, we tend not to vote.

    Yes, I think Rubio is the BIG winner.  I caucused for him.  In my precinct the results were: Cruz 64, Trump 60, Rubio 88.  The rest were single digits.

      How does 88 place someone in 3rd place? Did you mean 58? The whole caucus thing is confusing as it is. Lol.

      yves...because those are the numbers in ONE precinct.  smile  Then they total all districts.
      David....Is it fun & exciting to caucus??

      I think Rubio is far far far better than Trump or Cruz. I would consider myself on the left, but I don't like to actually label myself as republican or democrat as I will vote for who I agree with the most. But the idea of Cruz or Trump is scary.

      To clarify, Rubio was a landslide first place winner in my precinct.  They announced Rubio at 88 AFTER they gave the tally for Cruz and Trump, so I did the same.

      I see. Thanks for clarifying, Paula and David.
