IOWA: this will go well?

Iowa Democratic leaders Monday announced a new option for registered party members to take part in Caucus night. The plan calls for a virtual caucus that will take place over several nights leading up to the precinct caucuses that will be accessible by phone and by smartphone app. The goal is to make sure that every Democrat in Iowa, regardless of physical condition, weather, job schedule or personal reasons, has a way to help select the party's nominee for President of the United States.

The virtual caucus will essentially serve as an additional county in each congressional district in Iowa, and will represent 10% of each district's representation at the state convention. Users of the virtual caucus will be able to select their top 5 preferences for President, choose whether they want to put forth their name as a possible delegate, and submit platform proposals to be adopted by the party.

See what happens when CA moves their primary to March?

Can't wait to see how many more people vote than are registered.

but doesn't this leave the door open for fraud? Because, you know, they won't be able to confirm that these caucus votes come from Iowans, Democrats, or actual people.

Nothing says transparency like a proprietary software program. LOL

Anyone else remember the "flying folders" icon that Microsoft provided for the mass media last time? Pretend like you're counting, because Microsoft is not smart. They are devious, bigly. Software has bugs. Any software code used in the public interest, in the public domain, will be placed in to an escrow account for public verification. Otherwise, NOPE keep flushing the MSnbc turds and their floating brethren. Putin did it.

Coin toss broke 6 Clinton-Sanders deadlocks in Iowa — and Hillary won each time

As for that statewide Democratic race, it was too close to call for most of the night. Clinton declared victory early Tuesday morning, with all but one of the Iowa precincts reporting, with 49.9% of the delegates to the state convention. Sanders was a squeak behind, with 49.6% — perhaps the real winner with that unexpected showing. For a blow-by-blow recap, check out ...

Yeah no, I already checked out. What were we talking about? Oh yeah, the back room cigar smokers of the DNC pick their candidate. Nothing has changed the D-Values status quo, afaict.
