    The Amount of votes for Democrats in the Iowa caucus a total of 100 votes.
    I guess there aren't to many Democrats in Iowa or they think they all suck!

    What are you talking about? There was record turnout on both sides of the aisle last night, and the Democrats easily outnumbered the Republicans.

    [QUOTE]DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A wide-open race in both parties sparked a record turnout Thursday in Iowa's caucuses, far exceeding previous contests.

    Projections showed a turnout of 220,588 for Democrats, compared to 124,000 who participated in 2004. Most projections had estimated turnout would be about 150,000.

    Turnout was also up on the Republican side, where projections showed about 114,000 people taking part.

    The last contested Republican caucuses in 2000 drew 87,666 in caucuses won by then-Gov. George W. Bush.[/QUOTE]

    Republicans tend to have jobs. This is why Democrats would opt for civil war rather than change election day to a Saturday. Why Democrats would give not only convicted felons, but actual prisoners the right to vote if they could do so without fallout.

    By the way, is it too late to undo the women's right to vote? Who can I talk to about this?

    The caucuses are in the evening. Most working people can attend no problem.

    And, yesterday, they did: It was the highest turnout in the history of the Iowa Caucus.

    So do Democrats. The 5% national unemployment rate covers everyone, not just Republicans.

    In any case, nice attempt at an excuse.

    How come Huckabee had 13,000 plus votes and Obama had 39 votes. You do know what Iowa means.

    Delegates versus votes. Apples and oranges.

    Compared to Huckabee, Obama got a larger percentage of votes in a voter pool that was twice as big.

    Maybe you could do something about the people who vote for "someone they would rather have a beer with" or people who vote for "hope and change".

    Unless of course it's someone who is named Hope, who has a plan and the change that adds up to the dollars that we would get to keep in our pockets instead of giving it to the government.:D

    Haha... this is hysterical. I know the caucus process is a little different, but to think that only 100 Democrats voted in all of Iowa.

    Please god tell me this is sarcastic!

    The reason why so Democrats came to vote was to vote against Hillary.
