DO carcasses were foreigners but I don't know I was agree state they're wonderful people there is no Thomas even participate and exciting to see the participating this is not representative some of the country and it would be much better if we we've been talking about this for a few decades to go on national primary to respect the problems Michael thank you just handful of people left at valley high school in west des Moines and Brian Conley who is still there working through the numbers and making sure that all the information is sent to the Iowa Democratic Party Jonathan Martin the New

o'clock here in the east well the next to Susan and lock my Colorado great season when you're on the air hi hi thank you yes Sir I wanted to say first off thank you for the coverage greatly appreciate having the exposure to the Iowa caucuses never having seen it first hand always curious about it and how it works this is my second time watching it the first time with a little bit confusing tonight it was very clear and I got inspired because it's really great to see so many people from the community come out and exercise there their responsibility their privilege to vote and participate in the number in the election process for me that was heartening because we are so divided and we tend to rely on headlines and bite nowadays for information so to see people actually coming together the community and participating was very helpful to see how transparent it is and that we can still agree on our democratic process so I just wanted to say thank you I really enjoyed seeing the coverage tonight well Susan thank you very much again kinda lonely room there right now with the the caucus organizer but you saw some video earlier it was full with participants from some of the top tier candidates and want to share with you some early results these are mostly from satellite caucus locations including outside Iowa here in Washington DC there was a cockroach location one in Minnesota and a couple of issues including in London and in Paris and the results showing that with really just a few hundred votes total only one percent of the caucus participants but the former mayor south in Indiana with the lead at twenty six point eight percent about seven twelve votes followed by senator Bernie Sanders it just over twenty three percent former vice president Joe Biden at nineteen and a half percent translating to about five hundred and nineteen votes and senator Elizabeth Warren at sixteen point one percent or about four hundred and twenty eight votes again this is a very small percentage mostly satellite coccus locations we do not have the results yet from the Iowa Democratic Party let's go to Mike in Hammonton New Jersey good evening Mike you with us hello yes please go ahead yeah my name is Mike not might okay hello Frank yeah well I believe in the quarters uses that but I agree with the previous one of the previous set of speakers I'm a Republican and all pro Donald Trump I think he's doing a great job as president but I think that our nation wide the primary is probably the best thing because that'll give us really result all these here court decision and in different places just give you one and that town exactly as state hello all suffer through to read I can understand some of it but I also agree that the the the Republican users should say my army that tree nationwide I think Donald Trump would put I read all state the whole country I and that on the Republican side to say that some of the some of the stuff of movie lore on that I disagree with like he tried it is the allies and stuff the democratic very nation which given food to discredit trial from even before he became president a let the man do his job a used Cadillac good job instead
