3. Good to see the huge majority of those in Connecticut

voting for the actual Democratic candidate.

Seems like there's one state missing?

In total, Biden won 42 state primary contests plus Washington, D.C., while Sanders won seven.

Where's the 50th State?! lol

6. Actually as the delegates shook out after the caucuses, Biden "won" Iowa:

Biden 16
Buttigieg 7
Klobuchar 1
Sanders 12
Warren 5

11. So Buttitgieg delegates switched to Biden after he endorsed Biden?

I notice your link doesn’t highlight Biden's Iowa total as the winner like it does the other states.

12. I was surprised when I saw that about two weeks ago. It's a caucus, and the rules are looser....

....than those for primaries.

Since the primary campaign is a quest for delegates, one can assume that the candidate with the most delegates in a state/territory is the ultimate winner.

7. Apparently there were a lot of "uncommitted" GOP voters...

... that doesn't look good for Trump.

8. More than 13% of the republicans voted "uncommitted", my guess is they'll vote for Biden...

Connecticut is thankfully a closed primary state, so republicans could only vote for donnie or Rocky or uncommitted.

9. Thankfully, indeed! Democratic party decisions should be made by DEMOCRATS only.

Those from other parties... and those who can't make the most simple "commitment" to the Democratic party by checking a box on their voter registration form, should not be able to participate in PARTY BUSINESS. Period.

Join the party, or wait until the General Election.
