“Trump news – live: President claims victory for himself in Iowa after Democratic caucus descends into ‘unmitigated disaster’”

 

Truly, has Trump set the CIA loose in Iowa?

First, the classic Des Moines Register newspaper poll, a much looked-to and authoritative poll, is turned into a farce and withdrawn for having left out a candidate’s name.

Now, a bizarre delay in reporting Iowa Democratic Caucus results.

It really isn’t that complicated an event.

Of course, the Democrats look asinine, and Trump effectively wins.

And, yes, American politics are that dirty.

FURTHER NOTE

A company called Shadow Inc developed the computer application that is at the center of the reporting fiasco in Iowa.

It turns out that Shadow is well-connected with the Democratic Party establishment, having received tens of thousands of dollars last year from the presidential campaigns of Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg.

Pete Buttigieg is said to have paid Shadow $42,500 for “software rights and subscriptions.”

Even if it is shown that there has been no Hillary Clinton-style dirty tricks involved, the Democratic Party has been left looking suspect and ineffectual at the important start of the primaries.
