BTW, has there been any explanation why the Iowa caucuses are being held smack in the middle of the freaking Super Bowl?  Who managed that scheduling boner?

I know when I noticed that they were the Monday after, I thought that John Boehner's idea of making SB Monday a holiday was spot on. 😆

Keep in mind that

 

in 2008 Obama won Iowa and lost New Hampshire to Hillary.

in 2008 Huckabee won Iowa and lost New Hampshire to McCain and Romney (coming a very distant third)

in 2012 Romney tied/lost Iowa to Santorum, but won New Hampshire.

in 2016 Cruz won Iowa and then lost New Hampshire, coming in a distant third behind Trump and Kasich.  (Rubio who came in a close third in Iowa came 5th place in New Hampshire behind Jeb Bush.)   Hillary eked out a win over Bernie in Iowa and was crushed by him in New Hampshire.

Why did Bernie include the fake edited scene with him scaring Trump in his ad?

Bernie's general election (if it happens) run being a referendum on "socialism" is not a knock on him, but a knock on the stupidity of the low information voter.
