It's about to get real.

I default to 538, and it's already set up with all the polling you need. Granted, a lot can happen in a short amount of time to turn things around.


Iowa up first on February 3rd. I'll admit I still don't really understand Iowa Caucuses, even with 538's detailed and interactive explanation, but as of now it's looking like Biden has the best chance of winning based on polling.

538 is giving "no one" a 1 in 6 chance today, which is pretty good odds. We banking on Giant Meteor? I hope so.


also Sanders and Biden are tied in Iowa now

Sanders now in the lead in Iowa polling!

(he's actually projected to win in 3 out of 4 states who hold early primaries, though it's still early in the game for the remaining 3)


I'm so ready to get this ball rolling and come out with some clear front runners,
phase out the candidates who are muddying the waters

What we're seeing in the "chaos" of the Iowa clown show is good reason never to let the Dems design any voting systems. The true nature of the beast is shining thru like a beacon.
