While multiple online reports have immediately raised security concerns over the applied software, blockchain voting apps have stepped in to weigh in on the Iowa Democratic caucus to argue that that was not truly mobile voting.
Before the Iowa results were released, campaign aides for Biden cited gross failures in the caucuses. It's also led to various people running with incomplete results to try to fill the media narrative vacuum with potentially faulty information, which is the last thing we need.
In a tweet Tuesday afternoon, Shadow took responsibility for the party's inability to announce results Monday. The results show Pete Buttigieg held a slight lead over Bernie Sanders in the number of state delegate equivalents, but it is too early to call a victor.
One was former Vice President Joe Biden, once the presumptive favorite to win it all, who came in fourth in all three totals.
"It's clear that in the first and second round more people voted for Bernie than any other candidate in the field", Weaver said in a statement.
"I think we should all be disappointed in the inability of the party to come up with timely results, but we are not casting aspersions on the votes that are being counted", Mr. Sanders told reporters on his campaign plane. In 2016, 172,000 participated in the Iowa Democratic caucuses, well down from the record 240,000 in 2008.
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Last night was actually my best experience caucusing in Iowa.
Buttigieg, who campaigned in Concord, New Hampshire Wednesday after celebrating his position, was leading Sanders with 26.7 per cent of state delegate equivalents under Iowa's unique system.
The question is whether Iowa will have a large impact on these figures.
Spencer Kimball, Director of Emerson College Polling explains that "Bernie may have gotten his bounce yesterday as his Iowa poll numbers gave him front runner status and his New Hampshire numbers increased from 29% to 32% between day 1 and 2 of the track, but with the news today of Pete's Iowa performance he saw his own 5 point bounce between day 2 and 3". Running almost 10 points behind Buttigieg is far from impressive.
The precinct captain then tried to convince the Christian voter that she should not withdraw her vote from Buttigieg because he is an active homosexual.
Despite the uncertainty, multiple candidates declared victory Monday night as they headed to New Hampshire, where the first-in-the-nation primary is one week away. A primary is administered like a normal election, and a results reporting fiasco is far less likely. Instead, it would move to a backup plan. He's second to Buttigieg at 25 percent. All of the major campaigns were well organized and friendly, and the new presidential preference cards that were used to create a paper trail made counting people a much simpler process. The approach was also an expensive one, requiring deep campaign reserves to finance advertising and staffing in Nevada, South Carolina and delegate-rich states like California and Texas.
There are very few states left that hold caucuses.
