So far the most interesting numbers I have seen this evening are these.
2,054,843 total registered voters --
31% Democratic, 30% Republican, 39% Independent
So, do the Independents get to vote in these caucuses or are they boxed out like in many states? Anyone know?
EDIT: After looking at the Iowa Sec of State website and the official Voter Registration form, there is no place for Independent registration, only Green, Libertarian and NO Party. I assume those three are clumped together to aggregate the Independent numbers.
After reading the rules for how the caucuses are run, it is a wonder that any candidate would spend the money or political capital to go there for that type of contest. Have Hawkeyes never heard of the Primary system?
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
