Iowa Caucus Thread 🧵
It is difficult to steal a caucus because unlike the primaries voting is done in pubic view. So, the DNC designed a secret private app developed by Shadow, funded by DNC dark money, Pete Buttigeg, Clinton cabal, Intel and even Israeli influence. 1.
Why did Senator Sanders campaign managers allow this untested, dark money app to go unchallenged before the caucus began? #HELLOSomebody 2.
The Des Moines Register, Is a very influential poll and had Sanders leading. So the DNC and CNN killed it , because Pete Buttigieg reportedly complained that his name had been left off at least one survey. #HELLOSomebody. 3.

"They needed smartphones to retrieve a code, but they had been told not to bring their phones into the “boiler room” in Des Moines." @ReidEpstein @melbournecoal @ByMikeBaker

yet another hit piece against a certain candidate.
examples:
"In a rant on MSNBC that went viral on Tuesday evening, the longtime Democratic strategist vented his concerns about the party’s prospects for beating Donald Trump, taking particular aim at the party’s leftward lurch."
"We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells.
It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments — talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party."
"For fuck’s sake, we’ve got Trump at Davos talking about cutting Medicare and no one in

Whooboy. Do NOT tell me that being a married gay person is just the same as being a married straight person. You have ALWAYS had the legal right to marry. We have had it for FOUR YEARS. We do not have any of the other legal rights you have.
#CNNTOWNHALL
3 lesbian teacher friends of mine have been fired for getting married. So when Cuomo asks Buttigieg about his marriage and asks him to speak to #LGBTQ folks in America about this, I think about what it would have meant to me as a kid to have #BarbaraJordan come out.
#CNNTOWNHALL
Also, a woman CHANGED HER VOTE in #IowaCaucus when she discovered that Buttigieg was gay because, as the precinct captain told the press, "I don't want THAT in the White House."

Thread. 1. Reposting these images now with the title
"Iowa Math is the #NewMath." In my original post I called these #RoundingErrors. But they are not errors. This is exactly the way the Iowa Democratic Party wants the votes to be counted. #IowaCaucus
smartelections.us/iowa-new-math
2. From my post: "Because of the way the math was done at the caucuses, many precincts wound up with an extra delegate that got 'assigned' to one of the candidates at the end of the caucus. We were able to look at worksheets from 18 precincts that were posted on Twitter." #Iowa
3. "We found a strange process where numbers below .5 were being rounded up in multiple precincts. 6 of the precincts (1/3) had the unusual 'rounding up.' Of the 6 precincts with the "rounding up" - 4 were given to Buttigieg, 2 to Biden, and 1 to Warren. #IowaCaucuses #NewMath

They fucking misreported my precinct. Bernie won 2 delegates in Polk County - Des Moines Precinct 14 in Merle Hay and we fought like hell for them. And @iowademocrats put one of our SDEs in Warren's column but correctly reported vote. #IowaCaucusDisaster #iowacaucus #iowa
Here's my tweet night of reporting same and another view of the board in Polk - Des Moines Precinct 14. @nytimes @iowademocrats @DNC FIX THIS. #IowaCaucusDisaster #Iowa #TomPerezResign #MayorCheat #Iowacaucus
Here is the raw misreporting on the failing @iowademocrats's website. That .27 should be a .52 SDE. Instead, they gave it to Warren. They're trying to steal this. #IowaCaucuses #iowa #IowaCaucusDisaster

Hey folks: I wanted to share something @apmresearch just released that I’m very proud of:

Our VOTER PROFILE TOOLS, as part of our broader #RepresentingUS project. (Read: A wealth of data to understand the US electorate in interactive @tableau tools.)
apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 2/
We at @apmresearch released these tools on #IowaCaucus day, but expect that they will be valuable up until the #2020election & beyond—to understand how eligible voters differ—often dramatically—from state to state & in each congressional district.

apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 3/
Already I’ve read numerous #media stories about the #IowaCaucuses & #NewHampshirePrimary saying those states don’t reflect the nation’s #demographics, but the #journalists didn’t include any data as to HOW they differed and to what degree.

@WalkerBragman 1. BREAKING NEWS: I just did some basic data analysis. It turns out only 43% of STATE DELAGATES have been accounted for in the 71% reported #IowaCaucus #'s. Meaning that they managed to find the highest # of presincts with the least # of state delegates. Meaning #berniewon
@WalkerBragman 2. This means that although there is 29% reported presincts left to report, there's actually 58% STATE DELEGATES LEFT TO REPORT! If the presincts were summed randomly, those two % WOULD CLOSELY MATCH!Especially at 71% reporting! This is evidence they're being summed strategically
@WalkerBragman 3. This means that, technically, we're not even halfway through with the tally! This means that Bernie's campaign's representation of the results is probably much more accurate of the final results! Not only does that make more sense scientifically, but also with the polls!!!!!!

The uniquely terrible leadership of the @DNC allowed @BernieSanders to manipulate the base--women and POC who are those most excluded by the undemocratic caucus process--into keeping caucuses instead of trashing them for the #VoterSuppression they are. This is the result.
END THESE CAUCUSES NOW. Never again allow any candidate to bully the rest of us into submission for personal gain. No true progressive thinks caucuses are fair or reasonable or even makes sense.

Not to attack Iowans personally, but for my ENTIRE VOTING LIFE my choices in the three majority black cities I have lived in have been decided by a state that is 91% white folks who have no sense of what it means to live in a multicultural society. It has to end.

Not to be conspiratorial, but this reminds me of a DDoS attack disruption by overloading digital lines: "The hotlines was flooded w/ some prank calls…They were not ready for the volume"—@CNN @jeffzeleny & @jaketapper discuss #IACaucuses phone reporting problems after app failed.
@CNN @jeffzeleny @jaketapper So, I was right. MAGA trolls disrupted #IowaCaucuses election reporting by flooding the phone lines. Officials should never have publicly posted the number. Folks still don't get we're not in Kansas anymore. Trump is 150% sleazeball. (They're not called 'deplorable' for nothing!)
@CNN @jeffzeleny @jaketapper What's more predictable than Trump trolls disrupting elections, sowing doubt & discrediting Democrats?! Of COURSE they posted #IowaCaucus hotline on 4chan w/directions to "clog the lines." After 2016 we needed govt-wide response to find & close vulnerabilities. But GOP needs them

Ok. Expliquemos el lío de Iowa. El partido demócrata anunciará “la mayoría” de los resultados dentro de 3 horas, un día después de los caucus. Hay bastante confusión. Esto es lo que ha pasado 👇🏼
#IowaCaucus 🗳
Ayer se celebraron los caucus de Iowa, el primer estado en votar en primarias desde 1972. Algo que llevan con mucho orgullo y responsabilidad. Tradicionalmente el ganador de los caucus recibe gran impulso: atención nacional y mediático, más recaudación de campaña...
Y al revés. Iowa puede sepultar campañas para quienes les va muy mal. Esta es la razón por la que se toma tan en serio. Los políticos se vuelcan en Iowa meses, con sólidas redes de base y mucho trabajo de campo

Los demócratas metieron la pata hasta el fondo en la primera cita de las primarias, de cara a las presidenciales de noviembre. ¿Por qué? Abro hilo.🧵
👉Primero, algo de CONTEXTO: anoche EEUU dio el pistoletazo de salida a las primarias en Iowa. Siempre es el primer estado en votar e, históricamente, está considerado un termómetro para saber quién se convertirá en el candidato que represente a cada partido en las presidenciales
💻Los resultados del caucus, como se conoce al sistema de votación usado (asambleas electorales),se retrasaron por problemas técnicos e incongruencias en los datos. Y fueron pospuestos hasta este martes. Ante las especulaciones,el Partido Demócrata descartó ataques informáticos👇

Good morning, #IowaCaucus goers and Indivisibles across the country who woke up this morning still confused about what happened last night. We don’t have all the answers but we want to share what we do know so far.
What happened: we don’t have official numbers, which is a huge letdown for the grassroots orgs that invested so much in IA. Some campaigns are claiming victory and others are starting to cast doubt on the results altogether. Both are irresponsible based on current set of facts.
What we know: it’s clear that @PeteButtigieg, @BernieSanders, and @EWarren performed well—we can't know how well or what that looks like until we get numbers, but it seems like these historic candidates are on top.

A) I just want to point out AGAIN, that while we Democrats are having fun crapping on our own party and acting like a circular firing squad...THE REPUBLICANS ARE HAPPILY LINING UP TO GO TO PRISON FOR DONALD TRUMP. Focus, people. We’re going to get the results. #IowaCaucus
B) Big deal there was a temporary malfunction in #Iowa. Calm the F down. Remember when the entire country freaked out that the affordable care act website wasn’t up and running perfectly, day f ing one? A brand new national health policy that served millions of Americans.
C) The corrupt R party never does this sh*t. We played in to their BS “Dems can’t roll out a new policy without messing it up.” narrative with the ACA. Let’s not play that exact game again. We have the brains, experience and the NUMBERS. Stay united, Dems. On to #NewHampshire 🇺🇸

Popped over the state line to witness the #IowaCaucuses. At Capital Square, the house is packed. My goal: convince everyone who’s been knocking doors here for the primary switches to Wisconsin for the general, starting tomorrow. (Our first 2020 statewide canvass is Saturday.)
Today’s my birthday, and everyone here at the #IowaCaucuses has given me the one thing on my birthday wish list: they’re getting deeply involved, voting, and recruiting others. You, tweet reader, can do the same thing!
As a state party chair, I’m committed to neutrality in the primary. But I’m 0% neutral and 100% delighted by this part of the #IowaCaucuses: the new voter registration tables.

#IowaCaucus Here at my student union lounge where the caucus is early. The Bernie folks are holding a party in the corner. A Yangster was being interviewed earlier. Bloomburgers and Steyers, I'll be shocked if I see one.
The Bernie folks gave me a free shirt. A reporter filmed one of them spilling a jar of pins on the floor. I also had a fruit pizza they gave me. It was a frosted sugar cookie with fruit on it. 10/10, delicious.
One warned me not to talk to an evil lady from the far-right press. This was the lady that was talking to the Yangster earlier. The Bernie caucis party was inflitrated before it even began.

#IowaCaucus Update (will be doing all day)

Have multiple @BernieSanders volunteers telling me several caucus locations were changed at last minute bc of expected larger turnout than sites could accommodate. Volunteers spending time 2da alerting voters of changed location
It should be noted. MANY of the precinct chairs at various caucus locations are supporters of other candidates. Should also be noted—Johnson County, which just moved a caucus location, has @BernieSanders haters on its executive committees. I’ve reached out to them about the
Moved sites and what they have done to communicate the changed locations with voters. Make sure you press notifications for my Twitter..I’ll be going all day. ALSO make sure...

Dear Iowa: when you #IowaCaucus today, it is your patriotic duty not to vote for @BernieSanders. A thread.
In the time before Trump, I was a Sanders supporter. I did not understand why HRC supporters called for him to quit the race and said he was divisive. I did not understand why it was not enough that Sanders called for unity after the Dem convention. Now I do.
Mueller indicted the Russian military in part for supporting Bernie Sanders in the 2016 campaign. Russia "engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton ... and to support Bernie Sanders" and Trump.

When Trump is desperate to run against your candidate - time to get a new candidate

#IowaCaucus
Combine Trump promoting Sanders with Trump's minion Iowa Senator Joni Ernst threatening caucus goers ...

Folks, Joe Biden is our unity candidate. We know him, we trust him, he has policies we all agree on that could pass & he's a bridge to the future

Even Bernie Sanders agrees Joe Biden will fight for the "working class" & the majority of black voters agree

"Biden is a man who has devoted his entire life to public service & to the well-being of working families & the middle class" - Bernie Sanders

Today caucus-goers in Iowa woke up to more than a dozen kids in cages all over the city of Des Moines.

We came to remind people that this remains a reality & that the issue cannot be pushed under the rug.

🚨 #DontLookAway this is a humanitarian crisis.🚨
#IowaCaucus
There are more than 41,000 people in immigration detention right now.

More than 60,000 asylum-seekers have been sent back to Mexico, where hundreds have been murdered, tortured & kidnapped.

And the list goes on.
Over 2 million people have been deported in the past dozen years.

And more than 800,000 DACA recipients could soon be open to deportation.

Something for #IowaCaucus voters to consider:

Trump won in 2016 b/c he won 6 states Obama/Biden had won twice:
- Florida (29 electoral votes)
- Pennsylvania (20)
- Ohio (18)
- Michigan (16)
- Wisconsin (11)
- Iowa (6)

So, how do the Dem candidates poll against Trump here?
If you look at the General Election polls on FiveThirtyEight.com, you can look at the polls that compare various Democratic candidates against Trump in various states.

I checked the polls for the Dems against Trump over the last 3 months.
projects.fivethirtyeight.com/polls/?ex_cid=…
If you sum up the polls over the past 3 months and count how many times each candidate beats Trump versus loses to him in polls in these 6 key states, you find:

- Biden beats Trump more often than not in FL, PA, MI and WI.
- Sanders beats Trump more often than not in MI only.
