    Why is there a divide between the popular vote and the result at all? Everyone’s vote should be equal. Everyone matters.

      Fred Flintstone I haven’t heard such a crock in a long time. Are you sure your not an Afrikaner they made the same arguments about apartheid.

    • @Fred Flintstone what’s a county delegate?

    • @chevon1920 I don’t disagree. It isn’t fair. Progressive taxation also isn’t fair. Regressive taxation isn’t fair either. Drafts aren’t fair… The federal government is not and has never really been in the business of fair. If fair is the standard then things are going to be very, very, different.

      Zeno of Citium everyone in here is looking for the same thing. The Truth and prosperity. Some people hate the truth and those are the same people who don’t want everyone prospering. easy to see and I’m not in the business of teaching people how to behave.

  2. So all I got out of that was them trying to block bernie

      @Aisha Abdi The real result of The Presidency :
      Quid Pro Joe wins = He will be Impeached!
      Brezhnev Sanders wins = 2nd Revolution! USA WILL NEVER BE A SOCIALIST COUNTRY!
      the only solution Buy the Presidency with Multi Billionaire Bloomberg for the Demo Rats
      Trump Train Non Stop MAGA To KAG

    Oh. So this is how they are trying to screw over Bernie ? Gotcha

    • 1225tdnelson   You start with a question I didn’t ask and make a point I’ve been trying to make.  Thanks.

    • 1225tdnelson  THIS statement however, seems to embrace a defeat we don’t have. This is a time to support the candidate you want for president. If your job is to cover 2nd base and you’re not watching the pitcher, you could end the inning or even the game. If you guys were on MY team, I’d be letting half of you go for focusing on failure. Why are you talking about the next game when you need to win THIS ONE?Don’t take your eyes off the ball, guys.

      @Jonathan Gurkin The rest of the democrats are no different than trump anyway. It is Bernie or trump. So you better vote for Bernie if you don’t want trump because that is all most of us are going to vote for even if we have to write it in again. The DNC needs burning down also if the behave as corrupt as they did in 2016. BTW Bernie is the ONLY electable candidate that the dnc is allowing to run as a democrat.

      @Shawn Badanjek thats the most stupid thing I’ve read today, good job, keep it up

  4. Isn’t that the same dude that said Hilary would win in a land slide in 2016?

    • Painkiller Jones | February 3, 2020 at 8:25 AM | Reply

      Same polls will be used this year!!! I hear hillary’s a front runner as we speak.

    • Leah Archambault | February 3, 2020 at 11:34 AM | Reply

      Well, she did by popular vote. But you Americans don’t do full democracy, you do electoral college democracy. In most democratic countries, 1 vote is 1 vote.

    • Painkiller Jones | February 3, 2020 at 11:41 AM | Reply

      @Leah Archambault If the population were evenly spread among all 50 states, we’d be able to do it that way. As it is, we’d have New York and California deciding our elections if done per vote. Screw that!

    • Painkiller Jones yeah! Instead we let the 12 white people in North Dakota decicide

    • Painkiller Jones | February 3, 2020 at 6:53 PM | Reply

      @Peg Williams Really? who are they? How did THEY decide?

  5. What about 50 to 64 year olds?

  6. Sanders must be winning the 50-64 as well because they didn’t talk about it at all. They just brought up the old people because they support Biden. False equivalency.

    • 24%Biden 20%Sanders for 50+. Their numbers are purposefully misleading.

      @Jason CollinsYou ” stop nominating criminal idiots?” TDS need I say more! You Must love Nancy’s fresno Sewer full of Illegal No ID voters! Denying americans of need. Trump Train No Stop MAGA to KAG! Guaranteed!

    • @Fred Flintstone Sounds like a very scientific poll you’ve done there. Stone age polling science I guess, fred.

    • @Webfoot Trucker I think you mean Obama created them and then Trump took credit for them.

    • Webfoot Trucker | February 3, 2020 at 9:40 PM | Reply

      @winesap2 I think you have overdosed on excessive excuses. Hussein Osama created nothing except a horrendous deficit. Tell Vladimir I’ll be more flexible after my last term election “Hussein Osamas”

  7. 18 to 49? We’re talking two generations here, sport. Your figures are mindless.

  8. Oh, Shee-yet! The “LAAAANDSLIDE!” guy is still alive? I thought he woulda jumped off a cliff by now. And he’s up to his old tricks, too, I see.

  9. What happened to all the 50 – 64 year old voters in Iowa? Who are they voting for? BERNIE 2020!

    • @Matthew Piche Are you saying that Biden is actually the front runner and MSNBC is skewing the poll purposefully to favor Sanders? If so, I must disagree. They have been anti-Sanders from the jump.

    • @Dean no, no, no. It 24%Biden 20%Sanders for 50+. Their numbers are purposefully misleading. I forgot to mention that it’s for 50+

    • @Lynn I’m a boomer and I’ve voted for Social Democrats my entire live.

    • @Matthew Piche Thanks for filling in the blanks! That makes so much more sense because nobody could watch MSNBC and think they were anything but pro – Biden, or corporate establishment Dem in general.

    • @Malèna P Thanks for responding to @Lynn. I am in my mid – 60’s myself and believe that unfettered capitalism is only good for the 1%, and leaves everyone else behind. I love Bernie and hope we get some more young blood like AOC.

  10. This just sounds so shady and seems the Democrats really are trying to hurt Bernie by making college counties less influential

    • @Zeno of Citium I see that their are advantages that the Republicans are superior at taking swings at. The Dem’s tend to fight against themselves… which hurts them. 2 (two) States have changed their voting laws since 2016 to “Ranked Choice.” Trump is the worst outcome the Republican Party ever promulgated.

    • Shawn Badanjek | February 3, 2020 at 7:24 PM | Reply

      The democratic party is trying to say “you young punks don’t really know what is good for you so we are going to discount your voices and votes” “you will thank us when you get to our age and much wiser” Fock these a$$holes. They are just as bad as trump!

    • In Des Moines Precinct 47 (East Village – downtown, young), Joe Biden is not viable. Warren and Sanders with the most, Buttigieg should be viable. Yang had more than Biden

  11. If you are young in Iowa, get out and go to your caucus place if you want to get Biden out of the race !
    Biden is not your friend and actualy if you are an elderly person, Biden is not your friend either !!!

  12. What about 50 to 64 year olds?
    They left out a whole group of people. I wonder why? I think I know why. There wouldn’t be much to talk about. Play with the numbers and come up with more news to sell ad space.

  13. Looks like they’re trying to paint a narrative for when they rig the election.

  14. Guys, get out, elect Bernie and surprise the media! Greetings from a Berner in Switzerland.

    The question isn’t if Bernie is gonna win the nomination. It’s if the corporate elites that own our government will take it away from him AGAIN.

  16. Detonate Klubstompers | February 3, 2020 at 8:33 AM | Reply

    “if Bernie kicks butt, this is why” No, we just want Bernie, even my 67 year old dad, all his friends, and my 75 year old uncle.

  17. One thing is clear, maintaining the status quo is no longer an option. The voters are attacking the establishment from both the right and the left.

  18. Bernie is gonna mop the floor with Biden with the young and he’s DEFINITELY beating Biden with older voters. Those exit polls are gonna be the DNC’s undoing.

    • they skipped over the 50-64 age group to do this comparison… those people are cancelled !

    • Will Bernie mop the floor with trump? I don’t care who the candidate is, they’re all preferable to trump

    • Mantis Toboggan | February 3, 2020 at 3:33 PM | Reply

      @Joy Brautigam bernie would destroy him.
      so much so that the debate stages will be uninhabitable for a few hundred years after.

    • Crystal Norman | February 3, 2020 at 6:46 PM | Reply

      I really hope so 😳 i heard their was a bunch of irregularities in exit polls in 2016 with bernie and hillary but it didnt seem to matter lol didnt change the outcome of the primary election anyways

  19. “Sanders is a couple points ahead” A couple is two. Why can’t he say four?

  20. Come on out YOUTH and vote in IOWA!
