Many are still trying to get them to release the actual numbers. All the same, the psychology effect that knowing Hillary actually lost Iowa was at work in N.H. last night.

Sometimes I have to wonder, is Christie actually a democrat?
I'm wondering the same about Bush. Now granted Rubio did enough damage himself but Bush spent $36 million in N.H. attacking Rubio. Rubio....not Trump who easily won but Rubio.

Or not. I read that fearful little screed in the OP.

We have yet to see "republicans" rally around a candidate, as there is no nominee at this time. I would offer that the RNC would probably prefer Hillary in the White House before Trump.

Both Bernie and Hillary are fairly poor candidates with TONS of baggage. Both would be easy marks in the debates and would make any republican look good. However, one must appreciate that we have many, many idiots in the US, so I would not dismiss any democrat winning, simply because they are a democrat.

If one was to "fear" anyone it would be Biden. Despite his candidacy being essentially a third term for Obama, he would be a much better candidate and does not have the baggage of either Hillary or Sanders. Gore would be terrible, as he appears a lunatic with his AGW agenda.

Will the dems "draft" another candidate? I think the dems are beginning to appreciate how conservatives felt when McCain was the republican candidate.
It's just the top of the first inning. And there's no score. This has a long way to go. Things will appear a lot clearer in the next three weeks, I think.

Wrong, either you are deeply misinformed or you are spreading rumors.

1. It was purely rumor that Hillary won all the coin tosses. It's confirmed by the DNC that Bernie won several coin tosses.
No, Hillary Clinton did not win Iowa because of a coin flip - CNNPolitics.com
So Apparently Sanders Won A Few Coin Tosses in Iowa, Too - Christine Rousselle

2. Cnn entrance polls show Hillary (49.13%) with a lead over sanders (45.44%)
It was likely O'Malley's supporters who drew the race closer.

3. The final and adjudicated results released on Sunday confirmed Hillary as the winner of the Iowa caucuses.

If Hillary won then release the actual numbers. That the DNC refuses to simply leads to what everyone else already knows. Hillary is untrustworthy.

We can disagree on this, but I don't think even the strongest Hillary supporters thought she was going to win NH, Bernie's backyard, pro gun state or not anti gun however you want to phrase it, and more importantly least amount of minorities. If Hillary does not win SC by a similar margin than Bernie took NH then she has a big problem and it opens the door for a moderate GOP candidate, which I think is what would happen if it looks like Bernie is the guy the gop establishment candidate will start to gain lots of traction by people who see the bigger picture.

People are already seeing the bigger picture which is why Trump and Sanders are doing so well.

Makes no sense given Clinton got demolished..

I cant wait to see Sanders take federal matching funds and the large donations after hes the nominee. He'll become everything he claims to oppose.

Do you agree with the above statement or not?
In a matter of speaking. I want Clinton to defeat Sanders so Trump can get his voters. They aren't going to her if they think she cheated to take their guy out. So, I would like the RNC to shut up for the time being and let the Democrats continue to act like a bunch of cheaters. I don't want to see her indicted, either.
