The Iowa Democratic Party has officially declared Hillary the winner with 700.59 state delegate equivalents over Bernie with 696.82 state delegate equivalents. They reported the results to be the closest in the history of the caucus.


The race for Iowa voters in the Democratic caucus was so remarkably close late last night that Hillary Clinton's 49.9% victory over Bernie Sanders' 49.6% loss was decided by a coin toss. Six of them, in fact.

According to the The Blaze, six Democratic counties had unassigned delegates. Those delegates were assigned by coin tosses. Incredibly, in all six tosses, Clinton came out the winner. securing what she needed to beat Bernie in the Hawkeye State.

The probability of winning every single coin toss out of six tosses is one in 64.

According to The Guardian, Bernie is demanding that the raw vote county be released.

Bernie said, “I honestly don’t know what happened. I know there are some precincts that have still not reported. I can only hope and expect that the count will be honest. I have no idea. Did we win the popular vote? I don’t know, but as much information as possible should be made available.”
