Decision day is here for the people in the Hawkeye State, and caucus goers will finally be deciding who they would like to see earn their party nominations. After months (what feels like years) of speculation, Iowa will become the first state in the nation to let their voices be heard, and many networks will be broadcasting live results throughout the night.
The final Des Moines Register poll from the weekend indicates that Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton is most likely to win her party’s nomination throughout the 99 counties of Iowa, though her lead over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders falls within the error of margin. On the Republican side, real estate mogul Donald Trump heads into the caucus with the lead over Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
The caucus-going experience is unique to Iowa; people physically show up and gather in over 1,600 precincts state-wide, and stand in corner of the room designated by the candidate of their choice. Undecided voters are up for grabs, as campaigns then debate and try to convince those caucus-goers to join their candidate.
