On the Republican side, Trump leads with 28% then Cruz with 23%, Rubio with 15%, Carson with 10% and Dr. Rand Paul with 5%.

Here is what could change the results, 45% of caucus goers (which is a high number) say that they could be persuaded to change their votes and 9% of them still haven't made up their minds.

Things could change quickly for candidates who make last minute headlines or who have a good "ground game" in Iowa like Rand Paul.

On the Democratic side, Clinton leads Sanders 45% to 42%, two candidates who are essentially identical, voting the same way 93% of the time.

Except on major issues, which is clearly pointed out to you in the thread you reference.

I'm curious to see whether all Trump's hoopla translates to actual votes.

Yes, I believe Trump's supporters will show-up in force. The GOP is scared out of their damned minds and the Dems are happy no matter whom wins the DNC nomination, even though they are behind Hillary. They expect Trump to win and it appears, according to the polls, both Clinton and Sanders can beat Trump.

Monday is going to be an interesting day. If Sanders and Trump can win this caucus, I believe they will begin to snowball support from other candidates/independents.

Bernie vs Trump would be a win-win situation.

Either one would bring real (but completely different) change.

Clearly some of the caucusgoers polled have been living in a bubble - how in the hell can Hillary be ahead of Sanders? All this does is reinforce to me that some folks are deluded and vote based on name and not policy or action.

She shouldn't even be allowed to run for candidacy given that the FBI are investigating her ineptness to correctly deal with (what is now) highly classified government documents when she was Secretary of State.

Sometimes you yanks amaze me, I swear, if she gets the nomination ahead of Bernie, you're off my bloody Christmas card list.

And as for Trump, he's the political version of Ace Ventura - funny, loud, in-your-face but ultimately a goof.

It doesn't mater who wins. Haven't you figured that out yet?

It's not really an accurate summation of a comparison of the two (Bernie and Hillary) to simply say that they voted in accordance 93%. What were the Bills they were voting on? Noting the differences of that 7% spells out quite a vast difference between them.

Also you should note (since you referenced it so pointedly in the thread you linked) Bernie voted yes on Rand Paul's most recent Audit the Fed Bill. The previous version was not a course Bernie agreed with. This one he did. He didn't "sell out" to banks he stood firm on his approach to deal with them and the Fed. Do you see anywhere in his a donation record that indicates a selling out? Nope.

Also, 45-42% is within the margin of error (4pts).

Are you seriously saying Clinton and Sanders are nearly identical?

Sadly and shockingly, I think he will get it and the nomination.

Part of me hopes that Hillary runs with it.

Then the liberals will HAVE to support her and THAT will be "Hill"arious!

Haha yes! And it's so damn close that it's not going to hurt Bernie if he doesn't win Iowa, it could however hurt Hillary if she loses. With 2 wins under Bernie's belt (New Hampshire is next where as you know he is ahead by miles) could sway momentum for Bernie which he is already on a very long surge that doesn't seem to be dying down at all.

He's already pretty much got Michigan and is surging in Wisconsin, Nevada and South Carolina. Another huge thing is that major black activists are starting to endorse Bernie. The "black vote" was Bernie's biggest demographic deficit against Hillary, we'll have to see how that one plays out.

My excitement is getting hard to contain! Though I'm extremely nervous too! I'm going to burst!
