OK, this is how the Iowa Caucus works. Watch these videos. In this precinct of 500+ people attending to be viable the candidate’s group needed 78 people or they have to realign to another group. Only 2 candidates achieved viability (Obama, Edwards). Learn about caucusing, if your state has one coming up. I actually ran one many years ago when I was a committeewoman in my ward. ~ Lo
Caucus Camera: Precinct 21
This video is a first-hand look at caucusing in Iowa. Over 500 people gathered to choose a candidate on the campus of the University of Iowa.
Funtastic fun and political pandemonium, this video has it all.
