|Iowans Caucusing in 2012|
The 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections start Monday night, February 1, in the midwestern state of Iowa, which will hold Democratic and Republican caucuses.
A caucus is not an election. It is a gathering of people who express their preference for a presidential candidate by appointing individuals to county and statewide conventions. The first Primary, or actual election with a ballot, will be held in the New England State of New Hampshire on Tuesday, February 8.
Here are my predictions for the winner of the Iowa Caucuses as of today. I may revise my predictions next weekend. Only a very narrow margin separates the first and second place candidate projections.
Please note that I have not been able to keep up my publishing schedule here due to personal issues.
Winner of Iowa Democratic Caucus
Projected Winner: Hillary Clinton
Second Place: Bernie Sanders
Winner of Iowa Republican Caucus
Projected Winner: Donald Trump
Second Place: Ted Cruz
