Does an endorsement from the NY Times, or from any newspaper, for that matter, ever really help much?

I tried to be a sarcasm tag in there but the forum software ate it.

Fox is slobbering all over Rubio. They could at least try to be discrete about it. I guess they're desperate.

NPR said that the Iowa caucus is less indicative of who will win the republican nominee than the democrats.

Iowa got it wrong the last two times for republicans.

Hillary gets a non-victory. I like it.

In six precincts the vote was decided by the toss of a coin - all going to Mrs Clinton, according to the Des Moines Register.

Clinton's day-after spin: A win is a win, regardless of the margin or method of victory. To use a sports analogy, the hope all along was to get a "split" on the "away" court (Iowa and New Hampshire) before heading "home" (South Carolina).

(I think Bernie's done after he wins New Hampshire.)

1,400 folks decided the Democratic side. FOURTEEN HUNDRED.

The Clintons are great at spinning. Bill lost the first 4 primaries in 1992 primaries, including both Iowa and NH, and that cemented his status as the front runner and winner for Super Tuesday.

But yeah, Bern prob wins NH by 20 or 25 and then loses big in SC and falls too far behind on Super Tuesday this year.

It's no secret that Sanders has basically no support among black voters, who make up something like a third of Democrats. Ironically Clinton will win because of their support, just like she lost because they gave it to Obama back in 2008.

You mean Clinton's margin of victory? Because just over 170,000 people participated in the caucus.

Crazy to see that 60% of Iowa Republicans voted for a black or hispanic candidate.

They should. Anyone else but Rubio will, in the long-term, hurt the party. Cruz is an asshole and no one will work with him. He'll lose the primary (although I would love it if he faced Clinton and she was arrested and he was ruled ineligible). Trump will make the party even whiter.

Trump vs Hillary - it's a toss up for the black vote. I think Trump could win the majority of it.

I'm voting for Cruz, because he mirrors what I would do if I became president (the people would have to really beg me to serve) and he knows how the America hating open border commies think . . .

but I think Rubio is going to get the nomination.
