What Is The Iowa Caucus?

Donald Trump Hillary Clinton and more are spending enormous amounts of time, energy and money in Iowa.

They are not alone. Ted Cruz Marco Rubio are crisscrossing the state hoping to finish in the top three.

Bernie Sanders is doing his best to garner more Democratic Party support than Hillary Clinton. Will Iowa provide Sanders with the long-term boost it gave Barack Obama or the soon-to-fade success it gave Rick Santorum?

More and more Iowans and other Americans may well feel their knowledge of the candidates has deepened but how many voters in Iowa and beyond know what the Iowa caucus even is.

The Wall Street Journal has gone so far as to alerting voters which Iowa counties to watch to predict the final caucus outcome.

A state which doesn’t make headlines outside of election cycles becomes for a time the center of the political universe.

If you are

The politicians may not be choosing to dance but those who feel their campaigns are on thin ice are certainly choosing for their campaign to go negative.

Negative campaigning must work, or at least politicians must believe it works, or they wouldn’t use it. Does the last poll before the Iowa caucus reflect the need for more negativity, more energy. more money, more public appearances and rallies or a combination of all of the above?

For the moment, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton  have reason for cautious optimism. Hillary Clinton less so as Bernie Sanders could win the prize. the race is that close.

Win or lose for any of the candidates after the Iowa caucus Monday night it will be back on the campaign trail in New Hampshire.

There will be no rest for Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Bernie Sanders or any other candidates in this marathon race to the White House.
