Entrance Poll: Majority of Iowa Democrats simply want to defeat Trump

The first votes of the 2020 election season were being cast in Iowa on Monday, where the race among Democrats was expected to be close.

The Iowa caucuses are officially underway.

"So it's on to New Hampshire, Nevada, South Carolina, well beyond".

"The accuracy of results of the Iowa Caucuses does not have a deadline", Kaufmann says. We'll have to wait and see what the results are here in Iowa. One precinct captain was explaining how he had been on hold with the party headquarters for over an hour to CNN's Wolf Blitzer when they abruptly answered the phone, only to hang up on him when he didn't answer fast enough.

After a "debacle" with the Iowa Democratic Party's inability to release official results for the state's first-in-the-nation primary event on Monday night, the campaign of Sen.

Iowa voters gathered at almost 1,700 caucus sites around the state on Monday, kicking off America's first votes in the 2020 presidential race. Buttigieg had been averaging third place in Iowa polls, behind Sanders and Biden.

The Iowa caucuses have traditionally given the winning candidate a critical boost heading into other early-voting states and winnowed the field by culling candidates who underperformed.

Here are some highlights from the entrance poll based on interviews with 1,512 Iowa Democrats as they headed into the caucuses that kick off what could be a months-long nominating fight. By the time it becomes clear, supports of other candidates whisper, who actually won the momentum that might have otherwise come out of Iowa will be negated. If a candidate does not reach the 15-percent threshold of support in a caucus, the candidate's supporters are released to back another contender, leading to another round of persuasion.

Three Democratic candidates - Sanders, Warren and moderate Amy Klobuchar - have faced the unprecedented scenario of spending much of the past two weeks tethered to Washington for the impeachment trial instead of on the campaign trail.

Biden's team has been downplaying expectations of a win in Iowa for months, arguing the race will really start in SC, where Biden has solid support. On Sunday he branded Biden "Sleepy Joe" and described Sanders as "a communist", previewing a likely line of attack were Sanders to win the nomination.

"We are on paper in many cases", not the app, said an Iowa Democrat.
