Ahead of the Iowa caucuses on Monday, Steve Kornacki breaks down the Iowa polls and the importance of the Iowa caucuses.
The Democratic presidential candidates pleaded with voters in Iowa for their last-minute consideration on Sunday, competing with the Super Bowl for caucusgoers’ attention and straining against an atmosphere of unusual uncertainty and indecision among Democrats ahead of the first-in-the-nation nominating contest.

The survey, published by The Des Moines Register for 76 years, is considered the gold standard for polling in the notoriously hard-to-predict state and is carefully watched as an early indicator of strength in the caucuses.
David Chalian, CNN’s political director, said on-air that CNN and The Register decided “out of an abundance of caution” not to release the poll after the network learned of a potential problem with the way the survey was conducted.

Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D) booed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a live campaign event for presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in Iowa on Friday.
The moment happened toward the end of a panel discussion with Tlaib and Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) and Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) at Sanders’s first „Caucus Concert,“ which featured a performance by Bon Iver in Clive, Iowa, ahead of Monday’s caucus.
Bernie Sanders leads in Iowa polls ahead of Monday’s Iowa Democratic presidential caucus.
If he wins Iowa and New Hampshire, strategists say he could gain a lot of momentum toward winning his party’s nomination.
No Democrat in modern times has lost contested races in both Iowa and New Hampshire and claimed the nomination.
The early primary and caucus outcomes could have an outsize impact on later primaries, including the large states voting in March, some of which begin collecting mail-in and early ballots in the immediate aftermath of Iowa.
The current system is a form of white privilege that warps the process.
Just eight days remain until the primary begins here in Iowa — and Bernie Sanders is leading the polls. For some Democrats, it’s a scenario they say they’ve dreaded and feared: waking up to the reality that the 78-year-old Vermont senator, an independent who has reshaped party policy and promised to bring a revolution to Washington, has a real shot at capturing the nomination.
WHAT „NOT ME, US“ MEANS: I cannot win this election alone. I need you to do everything you can to help us take back power from the billionaire class and create a nation based on justice and dignity for all. Join me, AOC, Michael Moore and Portugal. The Man live in Ames:
Mr. Sanders has gained six points since the last Times-Siena survey, in late October, and is now capturing 25 percent of the vote in Iowa. Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. have remained stagnant since the fall, with Mr. Buttigieg capturing 18 percent and Mr. Biden 17 percent.
The rise of Mr. Sanders has come at the expense of his fellow progressive, Senator Elizabeth Warren: she dropped from 22 percent in the October poll, enough to lead the field, to 15 percent in this survey.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Friday called it „disappointing“ that he is not on the campaign trail in Iowa in the final weeks before the caucuses due to the ongoing impeachment trial.
“Obviously, when we were planning out our schedule, trust me, we were not expecting to be in Washington this week,“ Sanders said in an interview airing Friday on „CBS Evening News.“
Four Democratic senators, including Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, are on Capitol Hill for Trump’s trial as the remaining candidates in Iowa campaign ahead of the caucuses.
With their candidates stuck in Washington for the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, campaign staffers, organizers and surrogates for Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) are under pressure to help make closing arguments before the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3.
The trial kicked off this week and will keep senators in session for six days a week, although it’s set to end early afternoon on Saturday, allowing the 2020 Senate candidates to travel to Iowa for the weekend.
Sanders this week said he was concerned about losing time on the campaign trail during the weeks-long trial.
“I would rather be in Iowa today. There’s a caucus there in 2 1/2 weeks. I’d rather be in New Hampshire and Nevada and so forth. But I swore a constitutional oath as a United States senator to do my job and I’m here to do my job,” he said Thursday.
Yet even if we absolve Iowans of responsibility for how the field has culled itself thus far, for the remaining contenders Scher’s headline take — that “Iowa Matters Less Than Ever in 2020” — might turn out to be completely wrong. Indeed, with three weeks to go before the caucus, it’s quite easy to see several scenarios in which Iowa could turn out to be crucial or decisive.
Full story here, including Sanders‘ aggressive on-the-record pushback:
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders narrowly leads his rivals with 20% of likely Democratic caucusgoers naming him as their first choice. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is close behind with 17%.
The Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) seventh Democratic debate of this cycle — and the first of the election year — will take place on Jan. 14 at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. CNN will co-host the debate with The Des Moines Register and broadcast the event live from 9 to 11 p.m. EST.
A new Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom poll has Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders leading the race in Iowa 24 days out from Caucus Day with 20% support among likely Democratic caucus-goers.
Sanders is followed by Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren with 17%, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 16% and former Vice President Joe Biden at 15%.
Sanders leads in Iowa with 20% support, up 5 percentage points since November. Elizabeth Warren is in second place at 17%, virtually tied with Pete Buttigieg at 16%, leaving national front-runner Joe Biden in fourth place at 15%.
He’s in a first-place tie with Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg in Iowa. All three are at 23%, and each would get a similar number of delegates out of the caucuses if they were to take place today, according to the CBS News Battleground Tracker. Sanders also now has a narrow edge in New Hampshire, with a two-point lead over Biden.
2020 Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden in Iowa on Friday said President Donald Trump had put the US on the „brink of a new kind of conflict,“ after Trump authorized the attack on the top Iranian commander in Iraq.
Waterloo, Iowa — Less than a month from the Iowa caucuses, Joe Biden is continuing to overwhelmingly target rural communities throughout the state. In fact, the last event he held in Des Moines before his current bus tour was in November, when former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack and wife Christie Vilsack, endorsed him. He is currently on day three of a six-day bus tour.
Clinton’s vote became a major vulnerability when she ran against then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008. Biden’s backing for the war remains a sore point for some on the left even now.
“The elites and the establishment are going to try to say that because Joe Biden sat next to Barack Obama he has the most ‘foreign policy credentials,’ but that is insane,” said progressive strategist Jonathan Tasini, who supports Sanders. “Joe Biden made one of the worst foreign policy blunders ever by voting for the Iraq War, which shows he is completely without judgment.”
The party’s top four candidates — two progressive candidates and two moderate candidates — are indicative of where the Democratic Party is right now, said Democratic strategist Michael Trujillo.
With the Democratic presidential primary finally nearing the time for actual voting, candidates are working hard in early voting states and leaning into maximizing fundraising.
Despite having a heart attack in October that threatened to derail his second quest for the Democratic nomination, he remains at or near the top of polls in Iowa and other early states, lifted by his near ubiquitous name recognition and an enviable bank account.
His anti-establishment message hasn’t changed for 50 years, and it resonates with working-class voters and young people who agree the system is corrupt and it will take a revolution to fix it.
Last week, more than 200 lower- and mid-level Obama staffers who worked on his presidential campaigns and in his administration threw their support behind Warren.
Biden and Sanders both posted strong debate performances that will leave supporters watching the polls to see if they can separate themselves from the pack ahead of the caucuses. They also engaged in a heated clash over health care, which has been the most divisive issue in the Democratic primary contest by far.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – People’s Action today announced that it endorses Bernie Sanders for president in 2020. People’s Action is one of the largest multiracial people’s organizations in the country made up of 40 member organizations in 30 states and representing more than a million grassroots leaders. The organization’s strong presence in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada makes its support a crucial factor for success in the early primary and caucus states.
“No other candidate has as durable a base as we do,” said Nina Turner, the former Ohio state senator who has been one of Sanders’s most high-profile surrogates since 2015.
“So now he has an energized base and we’re starting to see his crossover appeal. We can enumerate that too, with 4 million donations and hundreds of thousands of volunteers. We have the receipts and we have the moral clarity from a senator who has stood on the right side of justice for over 40 years, whether it’s been popular or not.”
In the latest WHDH 7 News/Emerson College Iowa Poll, former Vice President Joe Biden has maintained his support and lead in the Iowa Caucus with 23% of the vote. Senator Bernie Sanders is the runner up with 22%, followed by Pete Buttigieg with 18% of the vote. Senator Elizabeth Warren has lost ground, receiving 12% support.
Some say that giving two otherwise unimportant states so much influence over the process to fill the most powerful job in the world is undemocratic. They propose, for instance, substituting the current system with a primary vote in which registered party members in all states vote for their preferred candidate in a single day. Candidates would then receive delegate support in each state proportionally to the result of the primary vote. But Iowans are fiercely attached to their first-in-the-nation status.
The path to the White House for Democrats runs through Iowa; Feb. 3, 2020, is the current date for voters to choose their nominee at caucus locations statewide.
Whoever ultimately wins could face an uphill battle at ballot boxes in the November 2020 general election in Iowa — traditionally a swing state — but one that Trump and Republicans decidedly won in the 2016 presidential election.
