The New York Times reported that the app wasn't tested widely before it was deployed, and Miller said it's obvious that the app was rushed. That Shadow pushed a new build of the app just two days before the caucus seems to suggest the company was tinkering with it until the last minute. Installing an app via TestFairy or TestPilot is nonstandard and usually comes with a warning message from the phone's operating system. Phone users would be right to be skeptical about installing or trusting it.

Relying on this bug-ridden app made no sense.

They didn't even practice

This thread is NOT an argument and partisan thread. It's an attempt to analyze the possibility of a fix in a very strange event.


And then to put 60 percent of the results out is ridiculous

I bet Bernie ends up winning

That’s a lot of voters.

The Dem PTB are afraid of Bernie and this happens.

It is pure hype! This time there is a real paper trail...paper votes from real people. What is your problem?

A "paper trail" is easier to rig 😃

Don't kill the messenger but here's one place about Pete spending on the App. Been hearing this all day will check for more sources


Pete's bought into the App

Heres another SO its pretty much out there as to the validity nothing yet but do we really trust MSM with this little tid bit...

Buttigieg campaign paid firm that developed voting app ...

Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg's campaign contributed money to the technological firm whose voting app contributed to reporting delays in the Iowa caucuses. Federal Election Commission ...

The firm in question, rather ironically, is called Shadow Inc. — and, according to Federal Election Commission filings, it was paid thousands of dollars by Pete Buttigieg's campaign for "software rights and subscriptions" in July 2019.

a conspiracy? more like the worst rap battle ever.

Biden and sanders are rudderless robots, given that it was in iowa surely one of them would employ Iowa's greatest global asset...slipknot.

I don't know if it rises to conspiratorial levels, more of its just an encapsulation of the democratic party. A lot of candidates declared victory last night and today, even though nothing had been reported. It's just more democratic fantasy landing.

You are mistaken on something. To participate in caucus you have to be registered. Not only that, but the democratic caucus will not allow you in if you are registered as independent. So basically the libertarians and socoalists such as bernie supporters who register as independent either had to change their registration to democrat or not participate. I dont know if this was true for republican caucuses but i did confirm this with independent friends who wanted to go to democrat caucuses.

Eta: you generally register at the dmv, where you get your license or state id.

I'll bet that Trump wrote the program that crashed Shadow's App. Not really, but you know it's going to be Trump's fault somehow.


None of that matters...there is a paper trail, therefore, we revert back to manual counting...the good old days.




How many ballots would that be?


Only the outcome and truth matters.


That many?

Why the Iowa Caucus Birthed a Thousand Conspiracy Theories




That has created a perfect environment for conspiracy theories to spread. The whispers are coming from President Donald
Trump’s election campaign, from Democratic members of Congress, from New York Times opinion writers, and from ordinary Americans who are frustrated or freaked out or simply trolling. In a country where wild beliefs are already rampant, with the president himself setting the pace; where there are fewer and fewer common, trusted sources of information; and where the stakes of politics feel perpetually life-or-death, these conspiracies can find a receptive audience and be especially damaging.

You see, this is a real possibility and needs to be seriously looked at.

Many potential issues


1. Biden and Buttigieg have a relationship with the app maker.

2. Hillary has a connection to the people behind the app

3. The PTB in the Democratic hierarchy are afraid of Bernie.

4. Iowa officials claim the app inst to blame

Not really a bernie guy, but there are opinions both he and yang share that i can get behind. Fortunately trump has made prison reform an issue. That would free up a lot of money better spent elsewhere than victimless crimes. The Iowa Caucus is only the begining of this # show. Wait until the brokered convention.
