Who Won the Iowa Caucus on Febuary 3rd 2020.

The Iowa caucus is always measured on who the top 3 to 4 canidates from each participating party are. So for the Republican party it was Donald Trump and Bill Weld. For theDemocratic party it was Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden. Amy Klobuchare came in 5th with one Delegate. Iowa Caucus does not usually determin who the final winner of the political party will be However the Iowa caucuses has always helped to clear out a feild of dozens of canidates who many may not do well on a nation wide level down to the top 4 or 5 canidates. So this site ranks the canidates based on the delegate and vote count of who is left standing for each party. Iowa Caucuses has always been used as a chance to help the individual political party find out  who is appealing to the midwest voters and who could gain the support of the rural states in the United States. Rarely has Iowa picked the winner of both the Democratic or Republican parties at the same time. The winners of the Republican and Democratic parties where the following.
The Repulbican party leaders where Donald Trump with 97.1 % of the votes counted 31,464 and Bill Weld came in second with 1.3% of the vote and 426 votes. Both Donald Trump and Bill Weld had deligates. Joe Walsh finished third with 1.1% of the vote and 348 votes and no delegates.  Before the November 3rd, 2020 presidential election, the two main political parties will start reducing the number of candidates for President by determining who will finish first in the Iowa Caucuses.
The Democratic party leaders where Pete Buttigieg with 14 delegates and 26.2% of the votes with 563 counted, Bernie Sanders with 12 delegates and 26.1% of the vote and 562 counted, Eleizabeth Warren with 8 Delgates and 18% of the vote and 388 counted and Joe Biden with 6 Delegates and 15.8% of the vote and 340 counted. It should be noted that Amy Klobuchare had 1 Delegate and 12.3% of the votes with 264 counted. The following canidates all came in order with out winning any delegates. Andrew Yang was 6th, Tom Steyer was 7th,  Michael Bloomberg was 8th Tulsi Gabbard was 9th Devel Patrick was 10th, Michael Bennet was 11th  John Delaney was 12th 

About Iowa's 'First in the Nation' Status.

HouseList.com

Yes the Iowa Caucuses will be back as first in the Nation on Febuary 5th 2024. The primary reason is that the Republicans will continue to hold there early primary/ Caucus on Monday Febuary 5th. The Republican party has not lost it's faith in using Iowa as First in the Nation and the Democratic party will begrudgingly follow the Republican party to avoid all the media attention going to the republican party first. The State of Iowa will hold its' caucus on February 5rd, 2024, tentatively.  Under the state law, it is sanctioned to be the first caucus held in the Nation.  (See  https://www.legis.iowa.gov/docs/iacode/2001supplement/43/4.html.)  In the last 40 years, starting in the 1970's when Iowa moved its' caucus to be the first in the nation, Iowa has become a predictor in identifying the top three candidates from both parties.  Only those candidates who finish in the top half of their party typically move on to campaign strong in other states. In fact, in the past, the Iowa Caucuses have become more of a clearing field in determining which candidates will stay in the race and which candidates will throw in the towel. This would appear to be a more accurate depiction of Iowa's role in the presidential campaigns than in determining which candidate will be nominated by their respective party. Iowa does play a big part in allowing candidates a chance to showcase their political prowess to a fairly middle of the road state.  (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iowa_caucus.)  In 10 out of 12 caucuses, Iowa has picked the top 3 candidates from both parties who would later win their party's nomination. In 7 out of 12 caucuses, Iowa has actually picked the winning candidate who would later go on to become the next President of the United States.
