On Iowa Caucus eve, top candidates attack but express cautious optimism about winning

The first major test for the 2016 presidential candidates is now just hours away with the Iowa Caucus on Monday — its outcome a likely sign of whether front-running Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump can hold their leads or if the unpredictable and often-angry electorate has other plans.

Trump and Clinton made their closing arguments Sunday, barnstorming across Iowa and battling on the political shows, in a final effort to beat back close rivals like Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders and Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, both eager for an upset in the first-in-the-nation balloting.

“Thirty six hours from now, the men and women of Iowa are going to caucus,” Cruz, who is trailing Trump in Iowa by roughly 5 percentage points, told “Fox News Sunday.” “And we have a grassroots army. We’ve got 12,000 volunteers in the state.”

    What happened to Dr Ben? Nobody cares anymore. Carly Who? The race is now between a circus ringmaster/SlapChop sales shyster and a Canadian anti-government Harvard lawyer/Wall Street lapdog.

      And On The Democrat Side:
      We have A Socialist…
      We Have a Liar and a Deceitful Person…
      The Third Person is just support for Debates….
      Great Choices from The Left…No Thanks!!

    Go Ted Cruz We need someone to be honest and Help America. Can Trump do it, I think Ted Cruz can.

    The Bible warns not to place a new convert hastily in a high position where pride will likely cause a fall. Donald has two ruined marriages, is on his third marriage, bragged of extra marital affairs in his hyped book, is on public record saying repentance for him is not necessary, made much of his money through casinos, and currently owns a strip club. Republican voters can do better.

    Go Trump!

    Not much choice for Demorats. (yes, I spelled it correctly) A senile old communist with one foot in the grave, or, A lying murderess who belongs in Leavenworth , not Washington.
