1. No matter. Remember, last time around a candidate won Iowa by a fraction of a point and....

 

.....lost New Hampshire in a landslide.

She did quite well the rest of the way.

10. She won Iowa and South Carolina.

 

Losing IA and NH wouldve been way different. Also winning all 3 wouldve ended the race much earlier than it did.

12. Yes. As I said, she won Iowa by a fraction of a point (49.84% to 49.59%) and was creamed in NH.

 

Essentially she won 1-1/2 of the first two states.

15. The meme wouldve changed.

 

But we cannot rewrite history. However, is there any candidate who won iowa and new hampshire who did not win the nomination?

Edit: 1992 bill clinton lost ia and nh. But two different candidates won those states... Biden could definitely go that direction. I just have trouble seeing one candidate winning both and losing the nomination.

3. I don't think anyone has it locked right now.

 

Wishful thinking on your part as a Warren supporter. I think Joe will hold his own. I like Elizabeth, I just don't think we will beat 45 with someone that far left. I am not saying we should not move left, just saying the country as a whole isn't ready for what a lot of people in our party think they are.

I still think it is crazy that two small states that are very white, determine who our nominee will be. I think we should have a primary day, all 50 states vote the same day to pick the nominee.

I am sure that won't be popular with some people but that is how I feel.

5. Iowa and New Hampshire don't matter.

 

The Democratic nominee will not be determined by a couple of states loaded with white folks.

The nominee will need the support of ALL Democrats.

South Carolina is the first primary that really matters.

Just my opinion.

38. Lol

 

Iowa and NH do NOTHING to tell us how minority communities feel about the candidates. I lived in Iowa for a decade. It's a fine state but hardly challenges the candidates to deal with issues important to people who aren't white.

Hillary Clinton destroyed Bernie once minority communities had their say in who we nominate.

I find it fascinating on this board of all places, how much of a blind spot there appears to be regarding this simple truth.

Until Sanders, Warren, Buttigieg and other candidates successfully plead their case and win over those communities, they don't have a prayer of getting the nomination....regardless of what happens in Iowa and New Hampshire.

6. I think the snowball effect would only come into play...

 

If we get a *decisive* victory by one candidate in both IA and NH. A runaway winner of both would have enough momentum to take those wins all the way to the nomination. The more likely scenario is a split decision - one candidate wins IA, another wins NH - with neither victory being decisive. The end result will be that the early primary states have less of an impact on who wins the nomination. This is probably a good thing.

8. New Hampshire is meaningless as Warren comes from the area...as for Iowa, I don't think it will have

 

the same effect as it has before...a small white state that does not reflect our diversity as a party... times change and also it is an undemocratic caucus...doesn't even give a representation of the state. Also Biden doesn't need to prove electability unlike lesser known candidates...he has been elected to the Senate multiple times and won a general election for the presidency as Pres. Obama's VP. I leave you with this interesting fact. Bill Clinton did not win either Iowa nor New Hampshire...

But Jimmy Carter got the most votes for a specific candidate ..This quasi-victory launched his upset victory for the nomination ..Jimmy put Iowa on the political map ...No one paid any attention to Iowa before 1976

9. For Many The Real Primary Begins in SC Which Will Determine Top Tier of Candidates

 

There will probably be no decisive winner coming out of the IA caucus and NH primary with their 90% or more White voters. Even if Bittigieg has a good showing in IA and NH he'll face a diverse voting population in SC and struggle. Sanders may also struggle in SC. Then it's on to Super Tuesday.

11. I don't understand how people say if Warren wins Iowa, NH it doesn't matter because

 

she can't win in the general, but the important one is SC, with Biden, which we will never win SC in a general. This makes no sense to me.

16. The importance of SC

 

is that it is the only early state with a significant African American vote. About half of the Dem primary is AA.
This translates into being able to judge how the candidates will do in the swing states such as MI, PA, FL, etc where the enthusiasm of the black voters is a major factor.
Biden has been maintaining a strong double digit lead in SC, and about a 3 or 4 to one margin among black voters.

22. I live in SC. I am an official with the State party.

 

But I'm sure you know better.
AA vote makes up about 50% of the Dem electorate in SC every single primary. The AA population is about 1/3 of the state, so saying it only constitutes 20% of the electorate is ridiculous.

On edit, I just noticed that you joined DU today and have a handful of posts. I guess that's why you can be so combative.
