The Iowa Caucus 2016 live stream online and televised results coverage takes place on Monday night with Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton in tight races for their respective side. Trump has a slight advantage over his next closest competitor, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for the Republicans, while Hilary Clinton has the edge against Bernie Sanders on the Democratic side. Tonight’s tallied vote counts and overall results should tell the story for which candidates stand out strongest. Can one of them win both Iowa and New Hampshire in this year’s election season? Will Bernie Sanders or Ted Cruz shock the more popular candidates, and will any candidates be eliminated from the running? The 2016 Iowa Caucuses live streaming and TV results coverage will be shown through multiple networks Monday night.
The Washington Post reported on Feb. 1 that Republican officials are expecting a record voter turnout for tonight’s caucus, due to the enthusiasm around Donald Trump. The billionaire businessman recently launched an attack against his closest rival, Sen. Ted Cruz, saying he is a “politician indebted to special oil interests.” Trump also spoke with ABC’s “Good Morning America” earlier today about how he felt going into tonight’s event, saying “This is actually my first election night. I’ve gone through many election nights, but it was always for somebody else. This is a little bit different for me.” With Trump involved, it seems that voter turnout is picking up due to hype and interest, almost similar to how it had back when Barack Obama was first running for president.
On the Democratic side, the gap has been narrowing between Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. The former Secretary of State was featured on NBC’s “Today” show earlier on Monday. Despite the potential for a wicked winter storm arriving tonight, Clinton was optimistic that she’d have good voter turnout in support of her at the caucus. Clinton told the “Today” show, “We hope that even though it’s a tight race, a lot of the people who are committed to caucusing for me will be there and standing up for me. And I will do the same for them in the campaign and in the presidency.” While an upset could loom over the Democratic side with Bernie Sanders possibly getting the Iowa win, many expect that tonight will mark the end of Martin O’Malley’s campaign as he is significantly trailing Clinton and Sanders in the three-candidate race.
