No, we do not "basically know" any such thing, you farking waterhead Washington Examiner "writer," and you idiot submitter.

Here's what we know about the results at the time of this post: NOTHING. You don't know shiat. What you have is information reported by the candidates themselves, which even if you were stupid enough to trust are not even complete, and only come from places where they had precinct captains, i.e. places where they're likely to be doing well as opposed to other places. You also have media reports and exit polling. Now go back to the early stages of election night, 2016, if you can do so without shooting yourself in the face, and tell me how accurate that was.

I am not a Biden supporter so don't even start with that shiat. Everyone needs to stop acting like a bunch of goddamn Trumpanzees and jumping on misinformation. Until we get some actual reports from the official sources, incompetent boobs that they are, no one knows anything in regard to which candidates under or over performed. Wait until you have something besides some dumbass on the internet before you go making imbecilic statements.

Oh come on now, we know plenty that the liberal media can report

-The data collection was an absolute mess and proof no Democrat should be in charge of anything, anywhere ever again
-Buttigieg's good results are due solely to him 100% owning the company that is counting the ballots and so he'd be a terrible nominee
-Nobody likes Biden and thus he'd be a terrible nominee
-Warren finished way behind the frontrunners and thus proves she'd be a terrible nominee
-The DNC is currently finding ways to disqualify as many Sanders ballots as it can because they are evil and biased against Bernie, who would be a terrible nominee for many other reasons
-Tulsi Gabbard was the real winner
-Trump winning 2020 is assured.

I expect breathless coverage of all of the above in the next few days.

Catlenfell: Mayor Pete is currently neck and neck with Sanders.


Of course it's way too early to know anything about the results for sure, and there's a lot of primary votes ahead of us, but if Pete did win the whole thing that wouldn't be the end of the world.

Americans are more likely to vote for a gay POTUS than an atheist, so he might have an actual chance. He's not my first, second, or third choice, but I'll take him.
 
2020-02-04 5:44:47 PM  

Catlenfell: Mayor Pete is currently neck and neck with Sanders.


Sadly this is Iowa where a significant percentage, possibly all of them, have no idea he's gay. And when they find out, a significant percentage consider him "in the toilette" like a recent video that's emerged unsurprisingly reveals. And these are Democrats.

If you randomly select a 60+ year old Democrat, there's a better chance they'll hate on the gays than a < 30 year old Republican (assuming you can find one).
 
2020-02-04 5:44:48 PM  
You know, I like tradition as much as anybody, but who gives a fark what Iowa thinks. Or New Hampshire.

Bernie won but they are giving Mayor Pete more delegates.
Even though Joe said the Party isn't moving left. The party wants to give fellatio to Wall Street and nothing will change.
Well ,he got blown out.

Good.

Biden not being viable is genuinely good for the country, the Overton Window, and the future of the Democratic Party.
 
2020-02-04 5:46:22 PM  
If so: good.

If Washington Examiner: probably not actually so.

Bernie (would've) won
 
2020-02-04 5:47:57 PM  
Since Iowa caucus results almost never predict the eventual nominee, I think we can go ahead and assume Biden is the real winner.

Book it. Done.

They should release the results when they know for sure who won not this report half and then wait a whole day shiat. They already farked up we can wait.

The good news is that in Sanders and Warren are over 50% in many counties.
As long as people don't fall for the fake, "I was a Sanders supporter but now I like Warren because I want to promote chaos among progressives by insulting other progressives." ,we should be in great shape.

Agreed.

No results and eventual results already called into question = a shadow of doubt on the rest of the process.
Reporting the results at 62% and letting the in-progress results explode all over the internet and influence upcoming pimaries = awful optics, suggests favoritism, another shadow of doubt on the rest of the process.

Regardless of who actually wins, the fact that Iowa's results aren't wholly trusted by everyone involved is a handicap to the Democrats from now until November.

Warren isn't a progressive. If you disagree, feel free to tell me the decade when she became one.
 
2020-02-04 5:54:48 PM  
So the two "socialists" got 43% of the vote. In that bastion of liberalness: Iowa.
Tell me again that we need to stick to the moderate choices (i.e. Biden) in order to win.

Since her supporters and Sanders are pretty interchangeable, I think the joining of the two before the convention will be a great moment for America.

Bernie and Warren are the most honest good people in DC. 110% of GOPers are degenerates and probably more than half of democrats dont really give a fark.

Democrats need to realize this is a war and they've been losing it to the gopnazis for the last 20 years. Time to fight back and stop being nice to actual traitors working to destroy the country and destroy everything sane people have built in the last 100 years.

No matter WHO wins the Democratic nomination they will all be the most commie, socialist, gun grabbing, baby killer in history. It doesn't matter if the Democrats choose an actual, literal pair of lady's shoes as their nominee - the same accusations will get hurled by Republicans.

It's all so idiotically predictable.

Delegate counts are not out yet as all votes haven't been counted.

The report I saw said sanders is down by 1%on pete and they both have 10 delegates. With only 62% reporting.

I was talking about your whole wall street thing at the top.

At least let the votes and delegate counts get finalized before you start playing the blame game.

Pretty sure the entire country knows Pete is gay, unless you meant Bernie, which would indeed be a shocker.

Not really. I am a poor motherfarker.
