I guess I don't pay enough attention to the media to know what they're saying about Des Moines this time around.

I live in the eastern part of the state in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City corridor and don't feel it's skewed at all. It's more liberal in this part of the state but there's still quite a few conservatives also, though I don't know any one who supports Trump or any signs for him. I seen quite a bit of media coverage here but not nearly as much as Des Moines.

Thank you also, Iowans, for supporting Bernie Sanders! He and Hillary will roughly divvy up the delegates 50/50, which is great! Bernie will wipe the floor with Hillary in NH, and she'll cream him in SC. Not sure about Nevada yet.

Well Iowa hasn't picked a winner in 16 years and Ted Cruz is no winner.

Proven political hack. He was first for it, then was kind of for it, then got an amendment passed that gutted it at the will of Obama, then voted for it.

I was amazed at how few Democrats voted, compared to Republicans.

That wasn't the number of democrats. They select State delegates so those were the numbers you saw, not individual votes.
