Guest: Barry Casselman, The Prairie Editor, joins me for a look back at Iowa’s vote………the polls were wrong……….a sequence of polls had Mr Trump beating Senator Cruz from 3-7 points….in fact the RCP average had Trump up by 4……on the Democrat side, the Sanders-Clinton vote was a tie……there were 6 coin flips to decide delegates……..overall, Cruz had a big night because of a superb organization……Trump underperformed because he had no organization…………Rubio turned on lots of voters in the last 72 hours……they are now off to New Hampshire and that’s a totally different landscape…….Kasich is doing well in NH and could be in the final 4…….we will see next week……….and other election 2016 stories……..Click to listen:
