Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Topics large and small. The topical is written by the very same writers at America's finest new source the onion and a very fatal murder a send up of the true crime genre and at less and ten minutes a day. There's no excuse for not listening. You can find the topical now in Apple podcasts. spotify stitcher or wherever. You listen to podcasts. On February third people will go to designated locations and and get together registered Democratic voters across more than sixteen hundred precincts in Iowa and more than ninety satellite precincts outside the state. I and I think three or four are actually even in foreign countries. There's wanted France I know and and Scotland these voters will gather in high school. Gyms School Cafeterias his churches and homes and the Democrats gathered together and form groups and they physically organize themselves in rooms according to candidates that they support they'll be a corner for Bernie Sanders Zone for Elizabeth Warren in area for people to the picture voters physically stand with their fellow supporters. They then count and any group. That has lessened. Fifteen percent of the total must disband those stranded. Voters then have three options. They can either join a group supporting viable candidate. They can try to woo caucus-goers away from other candidates to get there's over that fifteen percent mark or they can leave tonight go home and then that second round is the basis upon which delegates from the the caucus are awarded to each candidate then had counted again. The percentages are calculated in each Democratic presidential candidate is allocated delegates. The Democratic Iowa caucuses can be a pretty wild process often compared to a game of musical chairs for candidates though this game has a lot riding on it potentially the entire fate of their campaigns. Iowa is the first state in the country to vote in the presidential primary season every four years. And because it's the first time we hear directly from voters in each election cycle the caucus. Get a lot of attention folks. Raise your hand if your first time caucus participant here we go. A lot of history has been made in this room outside all the candidates. All across the state in these final hours candidates spend tremendous amounts of money and invest in large scale operations on the ground in hopes of earning those those coveted votes of caucus goers in the Hawkeye state. Sometimes candidates even move there. That's why this year is unprecedented. Conflict for some top Democratic contenders seems so significant several candidates pulling highest in Iowa have been unable to physically be in the state very much the past few weeks Senator Sanders. Warren Senator Amy Klobuchar senator. Michael Bennet have been back in Washington serving as jurors impeachment trial of president trump. So it is disappointing to me. Ought to be an Iowa talking to the people there. Don't you think it's important business beer. Well of course it is an item accepting my constitutional responsibility. One of the great the things about having these early states is voters. Get to know you and I think they're going to understand that. I have a constitutional duty to be there and if an impeachment trial is going on it will be here. It is my responsibility. Having a presence in those final weeks in Iowa can be the key to wooing any remaining undecided voters. What's more at least one candidate won't even appear on the ballot billionaire? Michael Bloomberg is opting out of the I four primaries and caucuses making his entry on Super Tuesday ballots. osas brings me back to a fundamental question. That's been bugging me as Iowa approaches. How important is this state to the final outcome of the primary? How might senators scaled-down presence in Iowa on the final weeks before the caucuses really affect the results? And how much does winning a matter for who eventually wins the nomination and even the presidency to answer that question. We set out to learn.
