Iowa Caucuses – What We Know So Far

2020 February 4
by bc3b
  • The faulty app was developed by Shadow, Inc., which has a number of staffers from the 2016 Clinton campaign
  • Shadow Inc. was picked in secret by the Iowa Democratic Party after its leaders consulted with the Democratic National Committee on vetting vendors and security protocols for developing a phone app used to gather and tabulate the caucus results
  • Shadow Inc. was launched by ACRONYM, a nonprofit corporation founded in 2017 by Tara McGowan, a political strategist who runs companies aimed at promoting Democratic candidates and priorities. McGowan, 34, is married to Michael Halle, a senior strategist for Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign, which records show has also paid Shadow Inc. $42,500 for software
  • Through testing, the Iowa Democratic Party (and possibly the DNC) knew about the problems 7-14 days prior to the caucuses
  • Pete Buttigieg declared victory at his campaign party before results were announced; Buttigieg was never shown leading in any polls (butt we know know screwed up polling can be)
  • The Des Moines Register and CNN refused to announce the results of a caucus eve poll
  • Democratic caucus attendance was more than 30% below 2008 and 2016 levels
  • Nanny Bloomberg announced he is doubling campaign spending following the Iowa caucus debacle
  • The botched Iowa caucuses has created additional infighting among Democratic candidates
  • 24 hours after most caucuses closed over 37% of county results have not been reported

    To borrow from another Dim — “You will have to use the App, to see the results of the App.”

    Both were a disaster. Why elect a party to run a nation if they can’t even run a state party election correctly??

    Remember — Enjoy the Decline!

    In the SOTU Trump really made a play for the black vote – the 100 year old pilot he promoted to brigadier general, the little girl awarded a scholarship and the man whose brother was killed by an illegal.

    Still 62% reporting. It doesn’t look like there will any Iowa caucus update until tomorrow.

    This is like fumbling the ball to Trump and the Republicans at the Dems’ 5 yard line.

    Fight On – she’s filling pot holes or so she says. The Dems typically pick losers for STOU rebuttals.

    Pelosi waited until she was on camera to tear up her copy of Trump’s speech.

    ALL THE DEMOCRATS HAVE TO DO IS NOT BE CRAZY: Pelosi rips up copy of Trump’s SOTU speech right after he finished.

    Comment: “she must’ve thought it was the Constitution”

    The remaining 38% are likely for JR. Think he’ll give me a ride in his Prius pickup?

    God Mrs.piggy is so fucking petty, I hope everyone watching caught the final minute just like she wanted them too, so that it backfires on her.

    6 – How does the % reporting not go up after hours and hours? Whatever, effectively there was no IA caucus.

    I miss the Obama STOU guests: Jihadists, race baiters, illegal aliens, drag queens, Ax murderers, abortionists, drug dealers, communists professors, etc.

    21 – Should work well for him in NH and too a degree in SC, NV is another “Stealth,Inc” app state so we’ll have to wait and see on that one – lol.

    33 hours after most caucuses have ended and 30% is still uncounted. Very little change. Bernie picked up about 1/4% on Petey Boy.

    I wonder how many independent votes Pelosi won for Trump, not just by tearing up the speech, but by her antics the entire evening?

  26. 2020 February 5 9:46 am

    26 – idk.. but her baseball coach like hand, eye, and head movements, as if giving signs to her side all know was annoying AF. I have to imagine I wasn’t alone in that, but then again the country is pretty split between tds and non-tds, so few are actually independent.
