Iowa Democratic Party Flipped Delegates to Clinton

submit to reddit

In the Iowa Democratic party’s chaotic attempt to report caucus results on Monday night, the results in at least one precinct were unilaterally changed by the party as it attempted to deal with the culmination of a rushed and imperfect process overseeing the first-in-the-nation nominating contest.

In Grinnell Ward 1, the precinct where elite liberal arts college Grinnell College is located, 19 delegates were awarded to Bernie Sanders and seven were awarded to Hillary Clinton on caucus night. However, the 19 delegates were awarded to Bernie Sanders and seven were awarded to Hillary Clinton on caucus night on the night and did not notify precinct secretary J Pablo Silva that they had done so. Silva only discovered that this happened the next day, when checking the precinct results in other parts of the county.

The shift of one delegate at a county convention level would not have significantly affected the ultimate outcome of the caucus, but rather, it raises questions about the Iowa Democratic party’s management of caucus night.

    I seen the tally looked like a bunch of BS. 100K R voted and only1400 D voted.
    What people don’t get is how the caucus works. NOT LIKE A PRIMARY STATE!
    It’s just a straw vote. Being active in another caucus state, most people just want to know the vote totals and leave. They wont stick around for the most important part, electing delegates for the county convention. Usually the most energized will stick it out, go to the county convention, where the most energized vote for delegates to the state convention. And ditto to the national convention.
    Case in point. In 2012 Rick Santorum won the straw in MN by a landslide!
    Yet to the National Convention Ron Paul had all but one delegate that could change his or her vote on the 2nd vote for nomination at the national convention.
    All it is, is a bunch of hype!
    You don’t know how many delegates till after the
