Well, tonight is the first night when votes are actually cast and counted. It feels like we've been leading up to this point for years now because...well...we have.
My political instincts are next to nothing, but with how complicated and tedious the caucus seems, I think that Trump's lack of organization is going to hurt him. I mean, what's the deal with all this standing up and publicly declaring for your candidate in a big gym, and then trying to convince other people to side with you?
If we've learned anything over the last several political cycles, people aren't big on changing their minds. Why can't the people of Iowa just do the regular voting thing? It's good enough for the rest of us.
In any event, for whatever it's worth, I'm going to predict that the methodical operation of Cruz actually works more than the flash of Trump, and Cruz wins the GOP side.
And just for fun, I'll predict that Sanders beats Hillary by two points.
What do you think?
