DES MOINES, IA – A lack of results in the Iowa caucuses didn’t stop the upper tier of the Democratic presidential candidates from pre-emptively declaring a strong finish and moving on to New Hampshire.

As the political world waited Monday night for hard numbers in the state that kicks off the presidential nominating calendar –  the Iowa Democratic Party was dealing with a debacle – saying they had found “inconsistencies in the reporting” of the results from caucus precincts across the state.

IOWA VOTE TOTALS DELAYED AMID ‘INCONSISTENCIES’

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign took aim at the pending results – questioning the veracity of the eventual final numbers. And Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign released their own incomplete numbers early Tuesday morning  – which showed Sanders leading his rivals.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar of neighboring Minnesota was the first of the White House contenders to come out and tout her momentum coming out of Iowa.

“We are feeling good tonight,” she emphasized. “We know one thing, we are punching above our weight.”

“All I can say is we are here and we are strong,” stressed Klobuchar – who needed a strong finish in Iowa to boost her bid for the Democratic nomination. “We are now ready to head to New Hampshire”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts started her speech by noting “it’s too close to call.”

But the progressive senator who’s seen her poll numbers decline the past couple of months declared that “tonight we are one step closer to winning the fight for the America we imagine is possible.”

And the senator spotlighted that “we are built for the long haul.”

Pete Buttigieg – who also needed a strong finish in Iowa to help propel his campaign – went a step further than his rivals – by declaring victory.

“So we don’t know the results. But we know. By the time it’s all said and done, you have shocked, the nation,” the former South Bend, Indiana mayor told his supporters. “Because by all indications. We are going on to New Hampshire victorious.”

Biden emphasized in his speech that “it looks like it’s going to be a long night but I’m feeling good!”

“From our indication, it’s going to be close and we’re going to walk out of here with our share of delegates. We don’t know exactly what it is yet, but we feel good about where we are. So it’s on to New Hampshire, Nevada, South Carolina and beyond. We’re in this for the long haul,” the former vice president stressed.

But Biden raised concerns with the pending results, saying “the Iowa Democratic Party’s working to get this result, to get them straight,  and I want to make sure they’re very careful in their deliberations.”

Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield went a step further, warning on Twitter that “the integrity of the process is critical, and there were flaws in the reporting systems tonight that should raise serious concerns for voters.”

And a fundraising email seemed to downplay the eventual Iowa results, reminding supporters to  “remember it’s not about tonight, but about the whole campaign. And I need your help to do it.

Political pundits suggested that the Biden campaign – worried that the final results will be disappointing for the former vice president – were pre-emptively downplaying the eventual numbers and questioning their veracity.

Sanders – considered to be in the lead in Iowa according to the final public opinion surveys – told supporters that “I imagine, I have a strong feeling at some point the results will be announced and when those results are announced, I have a good feeling we’re going to be doing very, very well here in Iowa.”

A couple of hours after the populist senator from Vermont spoke, his campaign released internal reporting numbers which they said represented the results from nearly 40 percent of the caucus precincts in Iowa.

“We recognize that this does not replace the full data from the Iowa Democratic Party, but we believe firmly that our supporters worked too hard for too long to have the results of that work delayed,” senior adviser Jeff Weaver said.

Fox News Voter Analysis Survey:  The Iowa Democratic Caucuses

Westlake Legal Group image Fox News Voter Analysis Survey:  The Iowa Democratic Caucuses fox-news/politics/elections/presidential-primaries fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox news fnc/politics fnc article Andrew Schwartz 177b6df2-b4e5-5552-a33b-c6da4127eba1

As the Iowa Democratic Party continues to count the results of the first-in-the-nation caucus, the Fox News Voter Analysis – a poll of nearly 3,000 likely caucus-goers – provides important insight into voters’ views as they headed to caucus sites across the state. These results represent voters’ initial candidate preferences, and the state’s complicated caucus system means the final results may well differ from this data.

The survey revealed that eight-in-ten attendees were angry at the Trump administration and most of the rest were dissatisfied. On that, at least, Iowa’s Democrats could agree.

On other fundamental debates, however, caucus-goers were deeply split. Twice as many voters were looking for a candidate who would fundamentally change the political system than one who would restore things to the way they were before Trump.

More Important In Deciding Caucus Support~A Candidate Who Will:

Restore Political System      33%

Change Political System       67%

These “restore” voters went heavily for Joe Biden (37 percent) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (20 percent), while fundamental change voters preferred Sen. Bernie Sanders (26 percent) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (22 percent). Mayor Pete Buttigieg was able to bridge some of this divide, garnering 14 percent from restore voters and 17 percent from change voters.

CAMPAIGNS WANT EXPLANATION AFTER DELAYS 

There were also clear ideological divisions – very liberal attendees went for Sanders and Warren, while moderate or conservative participants split their vote three ways, between Biden, Buttigieg, and Klobuchar.

Very Liberal

Sanders     41%

Warren      32%

Buttigieg   10%

Biden       7%

Moderates/Conservatives

Biden       25%

Buttigieg   19%

Klobuchar   19%

Warren      10%

These divisions may play a role through the primary season and even into the general election. A majority of Sanders supporters said they would be dissatisfied if Biden, Buttigieg, or Klobuchar was the eventual nominee.

The reverse is also true – majorities of Klobuchar and Buttigieg supporters (and nearly half of Biden voters) would be unhappy if Sanders is the nominee.

This may bode well for Warren – the only leading candidate who would be satisfactory to a majority of each of the other candidates’ supporters.

Iowa caucus-goers were clearly focused on electability: nearly nine-in-ten said it was very important their nominee could beat Trump. And yet, they had some doubts about which candidate – or which traits – would give them the best chance in November.

Over four-in-ten thought the Democrats would have a harder time against Trump if they nominated a woman (45 percent) or someone over age 75 (46 percent). There was even more skepticism about a gay nominee (57 percent) or one with strongly liberal views (58 percent). Of course, those characteristics describe each of the leading contenders.

Nominating a candidate with strong leadership was nearly as important to caucus-goers as electability. Caring about people like you, working across party lines, having the best policy ideas, and having the right experience were lesser priorities.

QUALSDEM20

“Very” Important Democratic Nominee –

Can Beat Trump?                     88%

Is A Strong Leader?                 85%

Cares About People?                 76%

Has The Best Policy Ideas?          66%

Will Work Across Party Lines?       61%

Candidate Strengths

Sanders’ strong showing was driven by younger, very liberal Iowans in urban and suburban areas. He also performed well among those who have known who they would support all along and first-time caucus-goers.

Sanders’ Strengths

Young Attendees               46%

Very Liberal                  41%

First-Time Attendees          21%

LGBT Attendees                44%

Long-Time Supporters          41%

Biden’s strengths are, in many ways, the opposite of Sanders’. He performed best among seniors, rural areas, and the caucus’s more moderate or conservative attendees. Men without a college degree were also a source of strength for the former vice president.

Biden’s Strengths

Seniors                             30%

Moderates/Conservatives             25%

Small Town/Rural                    21%        

Men Without A College Degree        25%

Warren provided stiff competition for Sanders among very liberal voters. She also did well with women (particularly younger women) and college graduates. Better than two-in-ten first-time caucus-goers went for the Massachusetts senator.

Warren’s Strengths

Women                   22%

Women Under Age 45      27%

College Degree          22%

Very Liberal            32%

First-Time Attendees    21%

Buttigieg – the first gay major-party presidential candidate – won 15 percent of LGBT caucus-goers, finishing second (to Sanders) with that group. The South Bend mayor’s best demographic groups included moderate/conservatives, those who feel the economy is fair to most Americans, and attendees who saw foreign policy as the most important issue facing the country.

Buttigieg’s Strengths

Moderates/Conservatives       19%

Economy Fair                  24%

Top Issue: Foreign Policy     24%

Klobuchar performed best among many of Biden’s best groups, including seniors, and moderate/conservative attendees. But where Biden was strong among noncollege men, some of Klobuchar’s strongest support came from women and college graduates.

Klobuchar’s Strengths

Women                   15%

Seniors                 21%

College Degree          17%

Moderates/Conservatives 19%

Ground Game

Voter contact has long been a key feature of the Iowa primary, as campaigns invest time and money in building strong voter contact operations. This year, more than three-quarters of attendees had been contacted by the Sanders campaign either in person or by telephone. Warren and Buttigieg’s campaign operations were nearly as effective, and even Biden and Klobuchar’s operations contacted roughly half of the attendees. 

Yes, Contacted By Campaign

Sanders?    76%

Warren?     68%

Buttigieg?  68%

Biden?      56%

Klobuchar?  46%

All that voter contact led to a host of first-time participants. These first-timers preferred Sanders, Warren, and Buttigieg.

First-Time Attendees

Sanders     21%

Warren      21%

Buttigieg   18%

Yang        12%

Biden       11%

Health care was the top issue for caucus-goers, followed closely by climate change. The economy and jobs trailed far behind, despite the fact that fully 86 percent felt the country’s economic system is unfair to most Americans.

Most Important Issue

Health Care            37%

Climate Change          31%

Economy/Jobs            12%

Foreign Policy          8%

Taxes                   4%

On health care, nearly nine-in-ten participants favored changing the health care system to provide a public option – similar to the approach championed by Biden, Buttigieg, and Klobuchar. Seven-in-ten backed a Sanders- or Warren-style single-payer approach.

Nearly two-thirds of attendees supported both approaches to health care reform, while a quarter supported the public option while opposing single payer. These “public option only” voters opted for the more moderate candidates: 29 percent for Biden, 25 percent for Buttigieg, and 22 percent for Klobuchar.

Views On Health Care Policy Proposals

Favor Single Payer & Govt. Run            63%

Favor Single Payer, Oppose Govt. Run      7%

Oppose Single Payer, Favor Govt. Run      25%

Oppose Single Payer & Govt. Run           4%

The small number of attendees who supported single payer and opposed the public option broke heavily for Sanders (68 percent).

On other policy issues, caucus-goers generally went green: 87 percent supported taxing the use of carbon-based fuels and 76 percent favored marijuana legalization.

The Fox News Voter Analysis, conducted in partnership with the Associated Press, provides a comprehensive look at voting behavior, opinions and preferences as America votes.  The Iowa survey is based on surveys of the Iowa electorate conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago the week before the caucus, concluding as polls closed.  Interviews were conducted in English or Spanish.  The survey is based on interviews with a random sample of registered voters drawn from the state voter file.  The margin of sampling error for the 2,829 voters is estimated to be plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.  Full methodology statement here: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/fox-news-2020-voter-analysis-full-methodology-statement

Infections from coronavirus exceed 20K as China vows new measures to prevent spread

Coronavirus infection numbers have surpassed 20,000 on Tuesday, prompting President Xi Jinping to announce a “people’s war of prevention of the epidemic” while addressing China’s elite Politburo.

Xi said on Monday that China must race against time to limit the spread of the virus and said those who neglect their duties will be punished, according to state broadcaster CCTV. Experts believe the highly transmissible disease will become a pandemic as infected numbers continue to increase in China and countries around the world.

There are now 11 confirmed cases in the U.S.

As of Tuesday morning, there are six in California, one in Arizona, one in Washington state, one in Massachusetts and two in Illinois. No deaths have been reported in the U.S. and 99 percent of cases still remain in China.

Three more people were announced to have been infected in California on Sunday.

“I understand that people are concerned, but based on what we know today, the risk to [the] general public remains low,” said Dr. Sara Cody, Santa Clara County’s health officer. “A second case is not unexpected. With our large population and the amount of travel to China for both personal and business reasons, we will likely see more cases.”

The U.S. announced Sunday that Americans who traveled to China within the last 14 days would be sent to designated airports for enhanced screenings. Foreign nationals who recently went to China would be denied entry, other than the immediate family of American citizens and permanent residents.

CDC WORKS TO PROVIDE CORONAVIRUS TESTING CAPABILITIES ACROSS US

China’s Foreign Ministry said on Monday that the U.S. hasn’t given the country any substantive help in its fight against the coronavirus outbreak. They added the U.S. was contributing to the international panic surrounding the illness, according to a report by Reuters.

Three people in New York City are also being tested for the coronavirus after they made recent trips to mainland China, according to the state’s department of public health.

“We are continuing to work closely with our partners at the CDC, State, and federal government as the coronavirus situation evolves,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot. “If you have traveled to the area affected by the outbreak in the last 14 days and feel unwell, call your doctor or visit a clinic, and you will be cared for.”

AS TAIWAN DEALS WITH 10 CORONAVIRUS CASES, CHINA ‘UNBLOCKS’ COMMUNICATIONS CHANNELS

Test results conducted by the CDC will take roughly 36-48 hours to determine if the three people in New York City were infected with the virus.

Weeks after China announced the outbreak of the coronavirus, the international community has increased measures to prevent a widespread epidemic.

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak a global emergency as it spreads to countries outside of China and the number of infected patients continues to grow.

Countries around the globe have increased travel restrictions to the infected mainland China and Hubei province — with the U.S. State Department increasing its advisory to level 4: “Do Not Travel.”

STATE DEPARTMENT, CITING CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, RAISES CHINA TRAVEL ADVISORY: ‘DO NOT TRAVEL’

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have advised travelers to avoid all nonessential travel to the country.

Coronavirus has now infected and killed more people in China than were sickened during the SARS outbreak in the early 2000s.

Here are the latest figures.

How many have been infected or have died?

The death toll from the virus increased to 425 on Tuesday, with a total of 20,438 infected — an increase of 15 percent in those killed and infected from the previous day.

The SARS outbreak had killed 349 people in mainland China back in 2002 and 2003 — with 744 deaths and 8,096 infections globally, according to the CDC.

The first death outside of China was recorded in the Philippines on Sunday. The 44-year-old Chinese man from Wuhan was hospitalized last week with a fever, cough and sore throat, and died after developing severe pneumonia, according to the Philippines health department.

Hong Kong reported its first death on Tuesday in a 39-year-old man who traveled from Wuhan.

The WHO said the number of cases will keep growing as tests are pending on thousands of suspected cases.

Where is the virus?

Roughly 99 percent of new cases have appeared in China with the vast majority of the cases in Hubei province and its provincial capital, Wuhan — the epicenter of the virus.

About 150 cases have been reported in at least 25 countries globally.

The United Kingdom announced on Friday it has two cases of the virus, who are reportedly members of the same family.

Differences between coronavirus and the flu?

The flu has estimated to have killed roughly 10,000 to 25,000 people with nearly 19 to 26 million infected in the U.S. between October 1, 2019, and January 25, 2020, according to the CDC. Coronavirus has impacted a far lesser number, although it’s not yet clear how many have been infected or how widespread it is.

There have also been reports it can be spread without symptoms showing up. In respiratory illnesses, people with the most symptoms are the most contagious, the agency said. Children and those over 65 are the most likely to get sick from the flu, the CDC added.

HOW IS CORONAVIRUS TRANSMITTED?

Unlike the coronavirus, there’s a seasonal vaccine for the flu. People over six months out are advised by the agency to get it during annual vaccination, with certain rare exceptions, such as severe allergies to the shot.

No vaccine has been developed for coronavirus as of yet, which makes it dangerous in that respect.

How did it start?

Chinese scientists believe the virus may have originated in bats. A study by the Wuhan Institute of Virology said that genome sequences from seven patients tested were identical to the bat coronavirus.

How does it transmit?

It’s believed the normal coronavirus can be transmitted most commonly through respiratory droplets in the air, as well as close contact with an infected person or touching areas contaminated with the virus before washing. The digestive tract may also transmit the disease, according to scientists from the Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University and the Wuhan Institute of Virology of the Chinses Academy of Science. They recently discovered “virus genetic material” in feces samples and rectal swabs from some patients, Chinese state media reported.

What are the current travel restrictions?

The U.S. declared the coronavirus a public health emergency on Friday with Trump signing an order barring entry to foreign nationals who recently were in China, other than the immediate family of American citizens and permanent residents.

CHINA SLAMS TRUMP’S CORONAVIRUS TRAVEL LIMITS: ‘NOT A GESTURE OF GOODWILL’

Officials at the CDC have advised travelers to avoid all nonessential travel to the country. The U.S. State Department raised its China travel advisory to “Level 4: Do Not Travel.” The U.S. expanded the screening of travelers arriving from Wuhan from five to 20 airports.

“Those currently in China should consider departing using commercial means. The Department of State has requested that all non-essential U.S. government personnel defer travel to China in light of the novel coronavirus,” The advisory said.

Vietnam stopped all flights to and from China.

Japan, Singapore, Indonesia, New Zealand, and Australia all have similar policies to the U.S. on restricting non-citizens.

Mongolia and Singapore have shut their borders.

Singapore said it would ban travelers from China’s Hubei province.

Pakistan says they’re halting all flights to and from China until Feb. 2.

Klobuchar vows to take campaign to New Hampshire: ‘We are strong’

Sen. Amy Klobuchar vowed to take her campaign to New Hampshire regardless of the results from Monday’s Iowa caucuses.

Klobuchar, D-Minn., was the first 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful who took the stage Monday night amid a delay in results from the Iowa Democratic Party.

IOWA CAUCUS VOTES TOTALS DELAYED AMID ‘INCONSISTENCIES’

“Somehow, someway, I’m going to get on a plane tonight to New Hampshire,” Klobuchar said. “We are bringing this ticket to New Hampshire, so even in a crowded field of candidates, even during the well-earned impeachment hearing of Donald J. Trump—which kept me bolted to my Senate desk for the last two weeks—we kept fighting and you kept fighting for me.”

She added: “All I can say is, we are here, and we are strong.”

Klobuchar applauded her family, her “tireless” field organizers and “unstoppable volunteers,” who she says “would never give up.”

“My friends here in Iowa, we have beaten the odds every step of the way,” she said. “We have done it on the merits, we have done it with ideas and we have done it with hard work.”

The Iowa Democratic Party reported a delay due to “quality control.” By 11:30 p.m. EST, there were no early results from the caucuses to report.

“The integrity of the results is paramount. We have experienced a delay in the results due to quality checks and the fact that the IDP is reporting out three data sets for the first time,” communications director for the Iowa Democratic Party Mandy McClure said in a statement Monday. “What we know right now is that around 25% of precincts have reported, and early data indicates turnout is on pace for 2016.”

Meanwhile, Klobuchar slammed the president and touted her campaign’s message.

“We know, in our hearts, that in a democracy, it is not about the loudest voice and the biggest bank account,  it is about the idea and the person who can turn those ideas into action,” she said. “It is a simple idea that the heart of America is so much bigger than the heart of this guy in the White House.”

Trump campaign manager blasts Democrats, calls Iowa Caucuses a ‘train wreck’

Brad Parscale, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, issued a statement Monday on the Iowa caucuses that have suffered a series of largely unexplained delays and raised questions about the legitimacy of the contest.

“Democrats are stewing in a caucus mess of their own creation with the sloppiest train wreck in history. It would be natural for people to doubt the fairness of the process. And these are the people who want to run our entire health care system?” Parscale said.

In the statement, he also said the Republican caucuses had a “record turnout” for Trump.

“Tonight President Trump posted a record performance in the well-run GOP Iowa caucuses with [a] record turnout for an incumbent,” he added.

His statement comes as people been reportedly waiting hours for the Iowa Democratic Party to share their results. Inconsistencies in reporting are allegedly causing the delay.

TRUMP EASILY WINS IOWA REPUBLICAN CAUCUSES

The Iowa Democratic Party said Monday night that results from the state’s first-in-the-nation caucus were indefinitely delayed due to “quality checks” and “inconsistencies” in some reporting, an embarrassing complication that added a new layer of doubt to an already uncertain presidential primary season.

The party said the problem was not a result of a “hack or an intrusion.”

Monday’s confusion allowed every candidate to claim momentum, though no results were announced by the state party as Monday night was about to turn to Tuesday.

“It looks like it’s going to be a long night, but we’re feeling good,” former Vice President Joe Biden said, suggesting the final results would “be close.” “We’re in this for the long haul.”

Biden targets Trump in Iowa caucus speech: ‘This is about ending an era’

Former Vice President Joe Biden took on President Trump Monday night, telling voters that the 2020 presidential election is “about ending an era,” as Democrats were engaged in an hourslong wait for Iowa caucus results.

Despite frustration over the delays, Biden signaled confidence while casting the election as one of the most important in history.

“I want us to remember, not just tonight, but throughout this campaign, this is about ending an era — well, about ending an era, god-willing, of a president — this is bigger than any of us,” he said. “We cannot allow Donald Trump to be re-elected.”

He added: “Character is at stake on the ballot. That’s what this is. America is at stake — literally, democracy is at stake.”

Biden also said he was running for president to “rebuild the backbone of this country,” while slamming the Trump administration, and stating that working-class and middle-class families were “being hurt very badly by this administration.”

“We have to unify this country as well,” Biden said. “A president is supposed to heal as well as fight. I’m going to go all over this country, every part of this Democratic Party, and reunite its men, women, gays, straight, black, brown, a whole universe of people out there.”

Biden also teased the party about the delay in caucus results, saying he wanted “to make sure they’re very careful.”

BIDEN ADVISER ON CANDIDATE’S SCOLDING OF NBC REPORTER: ‘HE’S NOT GOING TO BACK DOWN’

“We’re going to walk out of here with our share of delegates,” he said. “We feel good about where we are, so, it’s onto New Hampshire! Nevada! South Carolina, and well beyond.”

He added: “We’re in this for the long haul.”

The Iowa Democratic Party reported its delays were due to “quality control.”

“The integrity of the results is paramount. We have experienced a delay in the results due to quality checks and the fact that the IDP is reporting out three data sets for the first time,” Iowa Democratic Party Communications Director Mandy McClure said in a statement Monday. “What we know right now is that around 25% of precincts have reported, and early data indicates turnout is on pace for 2016.”

Biden campaign general counsel Dana Remus penned a letter to leaders of the state party, calling them out for their handling and the “considerable flaws” of the caucuses Monday night.

“The app that was intended to relay caucus results to the party failed; the party’s back-up telephonic reporting system likewise has failed,” Remus wrote. “Now, we understand that caucus chairs are attempting to — and, in many cases, failing to — report results telephonically to the party.  These acute failures are occurring statewide.”

Remus also noted that all campaigns deserved “full explanations and relevant information regarding the methods of quality control” the party was employing, and that campaigns needed to be briefed and given a chance to respond prior to official results being released to the public.

Remus added: “In the meantime, we are on to New Hampshire, on the road to the most important election of our lifetimes.”

Later, a Biden campaign spokesperson confirmed to Fox News that the former vice president was en route to New Hampshire.

“I want to thank our incredible supporters and volunteers in Iowa–and all across the country,” he tweeted. “Now, it’s onto New Hampshire, Nevada, South Carolina, and beyond!”

Despite the focus of Monday being on Iowa’s Democrats, Republicans in the state also caucused, delivering Trump his first victory of 2020.

Trump easily defeated his primary rivals—former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh—with roughly 97 percent of the vote. The primary challengers walked away with about 1 percent each. Monday’s results also indicated that those attempting to take on Trump within his own party stood a very slim chance of making headway against the incumbent.

Sanders projects confidence amid Iowa uncertainty

Sen. Bernie Sanders projected confidence during his speech Monday night, amid uncertainty in results from the Iowa caucuses.

Sanders, I-Vt., took the stage in Iowa Monday night, alongside his wife Jane, and their family, joking with a large audience about the hours-long delay in the Iowa Democratic Party reporting the outcome of the nation’s first contest.

“I imagine, I have a strong feeling, that at some point, the results will be announced,” Sanders joked, and was greeted by laughter. “And when those results are announced, I have a good feeling we’re going to be doing very, very well here tonight.”

Sanders was confident in his speech Monday, despite no indications of his performance during the caucuses. Sanders was narrowly defeated in 2016 by Hillary Clinton during the first nominating contest in the state.

“Tonight, in this enormously consequential 2020 election, the first state in the country has voted and today marks the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” Sanders said.

“No matter what our political views may be, the American people know we cannot continue to have a president who is a pathological liar,” he continued. “Who is corrupt, who does not understand our constitution, who is trying to divide our people up by the color of their skin, their religion, their sexual orientation or where they were born.”

He added: “All of that hatred and divisiveness is going to end when together, we are in the White House.”

Despite the main focus on Monday night being on Democrats’ first contest of the 2020 primary, Republicans in Iowa also caucused, delivering an easy victory for the president

Trump easily defeated his primary rivals—former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh—with roughly 97 percent of the vote. The primary challengers walked away with about 1 percent each. And Monday’s results indicated that those attempting to take on Trump within his own party stand a slim chance of making headway against the incumbent.

Meanwhile, Sanders vowed to “win this election,” saying that people in the United States “are sick and tired of a massive level of income and wealth inequality.”

“The American people understand that if you work 40 hours a week, you should not live in poverty and that we’ve got to raise that minimum wage to at least 15 bucks an hour,” Sanders said. “The American people understand that health care is a human right, not a privilege.”

He added: “And whether they like it or not, we will pass a Medicare for All single-payer program.”

Sanders’ speech came amid chaos in Iowa, with 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls packing up and leaving the state around midnight and heading to New Hampshire for the first in the nation primary scheduled for next week.

The Iowa Democratic Party reported a delay due to “quality control.” By 11:30 p.m. EST, there still were not early results from the caucuses to report.

“The integrity of the results is paramount. We have experienced a delay in the results due to quality checks and the fact that the IDP is reporting out three data sets for the first time,” communications director for the Iowa Democratic Party Mandy McClure said in a statement Monday. “What we know right now is that around 25% of precincts have reported, and early data indicates turnout is on pace for 2016.”

Frustration boils over in Iowa as Democratic caucus marred by delays, difficulties

Iowa Democratic caucus organizers faced an intense backlash from campaigns, precinct officials and voters as the lead-off presidential nominating contest was marred on Monday by delays and reports of technical issues.

An Iowa Democratic Party official said in a statement late Monday evening that “inconsistencies” in reporting results had caused the delay, but hastened to add that the delay was not caused by any hacking or malfeasance. This came after an earlier statement that the results were delayed due to “quality checks.”

LIVE COVERAGE: CATCH UP-TO-THE-MINUTE IOWA UPDATES IN THE FOX NEWS LIVE BLOG

“We found inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results. In addition to the tech systems being used to tabulate results, we are also using photos of results and a paper trail to validate that all results match and ensure that we have confidence and accuracy in the numbers we report,” IDP Communications Director Mandy McClure said. “This is simply a reporting issue, the app did not go down and this is not a hack or an intrusion. The underlying data and paper trail is sound and will simply take time to further report the results.”

But there were conflicting reports.

A source close to the party said that difficulties with the app likely contributed to the delay in reporting the caucus results.

In a tense call with the campaigns, the IDP said they would be getting photos of the paper results sent over, before hanging up on campaign staffs. One staffer for a campaign referred to the call as “crazy.”

While this isn’t the first time Iowa caucus leaders used a mobile app to record results, this is the first time this particular app has been used. The app had been “tested and verified” by the Department of Homeland Security and cybersecurity experts before it launched this year, the New York Times reported.

The technological snafu caused frustration at caucus sites.

Des Moines County Democratic Chair Tom Courtney faulted technology issues in his county, relaying precinct reports that the app created for caucus organizers to report results was “a mess.”

As a result, Courtney said precinct leaders were phoning in results to the state party headquarters, which was too busy to answer their calls in some cases.

“I am the caucus secretary for Story County Precinct 1-1,” Shawn Sebastian, the caucus secretary for Iowa’s Story County, tweeted. “I’ve been on hold for over an hour to report the results. We have 6 delegates.”

The delay also revived the long-simmering criticism of both the caucus process and the outsize influence the state plays in the presidential primary process.

“Can we all now agree that caucuses suck and should not be part of the nomination process for the Democratic Party?” Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz, tweeted on Monday evening.

The general counsel for former Vice President Joe Biden sent a scathing letter to the heads of the Iowa Democratic Party on Monday evening, slamming the “considerable flaws” in the reporting of the caucus’ results.

“The app that was intended to relay Caucus results to the Party failed; the Party’s back-up telephonic reporting system likewise has failed,” Dana Remus, the general counsel for Biden, wrote in her letter. “These acute failures are occuring nationwide.”

President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign also wasted no time in mocking the delay, with Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale saying in a statement: “Democrats are stewing in a caucus mess of their own creation with the sloppiest train wreck in history.”

The caucuses offered the opening test suggesting who and what the party stands for in the turbulent age of Trump. It’s just the first in a primary season that will span all 50 states and several U.S. territories, ending only at the party’s national convention in mid-July.

For Democrats, the moment was thick with promise for a party that has seized major gains in states since Trump won the White House in 2016. But instead of clear optimism, a cloud of uncertainty and intraparty resentment hung over Monday’s election as the prospect of an unclear result raised fears of a long and divisive primary fight in the months ahead.

Iowa offers just a tiny percentage of the delegates needed to win the nomination but plays an outsize role in culling primary fields. A poor showing in Iowa could cause a front-runner’s fundraising to slow and support in later states to dwindle, while a strong result can give a candidate much needed momentum.

The past several Democrats who won the Iowa caucuses went on to clinch the party’s nomination.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid would accept White House invitation, calls it ‘quite an honor’

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid says he plans to celebrate his recent Super Bowl win with a trip to the White House should President Trump extend an invitation.

He spoke to reporters after the Chiefs victory on Sunday night, adding he “hadn’t even thought” about the visit.

“I mean, I’ll be there,” Reid said. “I’ll be there. If they’re inviting us, I’ll be there. It’s quite an honor, I think.”

On Sunday, Reid captured his first Super Bowl victory in his 21st season as an NFL head coach, setting an NFL record for most wins [222] before his first championship. He was the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles from 1999 to 2012, losing to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl back in 2005.

His first win in the big game was also the first Super Bowl victory for the Chiefs in 50 years.

The team’s four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, Tyreek Hill — one of the fastest players in the NFL — also said he would make a trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

“That would be great to go to the White House,” Hill said, according to the Kansas City Star. “I’ve never been to D.C., so that would be great.”

The LSU Tigers were the last time to visit the White House and be honored by the commander in chief after they defeated the Clemson Tigers 42-25 to win the college football National Championship back in January.

“Your football program has inspired countless fans across the country,” Trump told the team during the visit.

White House visits have become scarce in recent years under Trump, with players from the Patriots and Eagles skipping visits.
