Civic Alert Presents: The Iowa Live Blog


Giving you live up to the minute coverage on the Iowa caucuses, Civic Alert proudly presents the first live blog.

Scott (7:55:36 PM): Alright everyone
Scott (7:55:43 PM): Welcome to the Civic Alert live blog
Scott (7:55:47 PM): we’re starting a few minutes late
Scott (7:55:55 PM): and the caucus has been underway for about an hour
Amy (7:56:02 PM): The results are coming in quickly though
Scott (7:56:15 PM): So far things have been closer on the Dem. side than anyone could have predicted
Scott (7:56:34 PM): So we’re going to be giving you up to the minute updates all night
Amy (7:56:49 PM): CNN is now projecting that Mike Huckabee will win the Iowa caucuses
Scott (7:56:55 PM): based on number coming in and entrance polls
Scott (7:57:03 PM): not a big surprise, but so early in the night, this is big news
Scott (7:57:33 PM): Huckabee getting a big win over Romney will really help McCain next week in New Hampshire by weakening Romney
Amy (7:59:09 PM): Obama is now at 33 percent, with 33 percent of the polls in so far
Amy (7:59:16 PM): he just moved into the lead

Scott (7:59:26 PM): with Edwards and Clinton both at 32 %
Amy (8:00:15 PM): Republicans are at 15 percent of polls and huckabee has 36 percent, followed by romney at 23 percent
Scott (8:00:22 PM): CNN is emphasizing how big of a win this is for Huckabee to have it called so early
Scott (8:00:28 PM): Now it’s a race for third
Scott (8:00:38 PM): McCain beating out Thompson for 3rd would be huge
Scott (8:01:29 PM): at least, for McCain
Scott (8:02:14 PM): with 37% of precincts reporting, Obama is still in the lead at 33% with Clinton and Edwards both at 32%
Scott (8:04:17 PM): A lot of talk about how big of a win this is for Huckabee
Scott (8:04:22 PM): but really, is this any surprise?
Scott (8:05:02 PM): although, remember, this is just CNN’s projection that he will win
Amy (8:05:03 PM): Also, a blow for Romney who spent much more money in Iowa than Huckabee
Scott (8:05:30 PM): With 35% reporting in for Republicans, McCain is also catching up to Fred Thompson
Scott (8:05:39 PM): with McCain at 12% and Thompson at 14%
Scott (8:05:52 PM): which is surprising for McCain, who barely campaigned in Iowa
Amy (8:06:04 PM): 25 percent of precincts for Republicans, that is
Scott (8:06:16 PM): sorry, 25% reporting in for Republicans with 35% for Huckabee
Amy (8:07:02 PM): Evangelical Christians turned out with twice the numbers as the last election
Amy (8:07:36 PM): This gave Huckabee the push he needed to get past Romney and Guiliani
Scott (8:07:43 PM): God is definitely on his side
Scott (8:08:03 PM): let’s see how those godless bastards in New Hampshire respond

Scott (8:09:42 PM): Watching CSPAN, it’s really clear how much a clusterfuck it is at Democratic caucuses
Scott (8:10:02 PM): it’s a madhouse of people crammed into living rooms and cafeterias
Scott (8:10:25 PM): trying to convince others to come into their “circles”
Scott (8:10:29 PM): so backwards…
Scott (8:10:32 PM): this isn’t how it should be done
Amy (8:10:44 PM): Whereas the Republicans just show up and write their decision on a slip of paper
Scott (8:10:44 PM): ballot style
Scott (8:10:49 PM): no peer pressure
Amy (8:11:03 PM): Why have the evolved and the democrats haven’t?
Scott (8:11:12 PM): they’re more anti-social?
Scott (8:12:20 PM): With 53% reporting in, Obama is at 34%, Edwards is at 32% and Clinton is at 31%
(8:12:24 PM): still too close to call
(8:12:58 PM): Huckabee is now at 31%
Scott (8:13:12 PM): small slip, he’s still way in the lead though
Scott (8:13:16 PM): especially compared to the democrats
Amy (8:13:33 PM): followed by 23% for Romney
Amy (8:14:39 PM): They’re saying that the voters who find religion extremely important leaned drastically for Huckabee
Amy (8:15:54 PM): Romney’s Mormonism may have been the problem for these evangelical voters
Scott (8:16:10 PM): Well, while NH doesn’t have a strong evangelical base
Scott (8:16:13 PM): South Carolina DOES
Scott (8:16:24 PM): so maybe Huckabee will go straight there after winning tonight
Scott (8:17:24 PM): With 57% reporting in, Obama is at 35%, Edwards at 31% and Clinton at 31%
Amy (8:17:38 PM): 41% of polls for the Republicans
Amy (8:17:44 PM): Huckabee still with 31%
Amy (8:17:48 PM): Romney at 23%
Scott (8:18:53 PM): Howard Dean is now on TV telling Republicans to suck it
Scott (8:19:02 PM): I’m waiting for the Dean Scream
Amy (8:19:29 PM): He looks like he’s spent awhile in the tropics
Amy (8:19:35 PM): nice and tan

Scott (8:21:26 PM): 66% on Dem side had reported in, Obama still has 45%
Scott (8:21:32 PM): curt is joining us now
Curt (8:21:39 PM): Hello all
Scott (8:21:39 PM): err
Scott (8:21:45 PM): sorry, Obama has 35%
Scott (8:21:46 PM): my bad
Curt (8:21:52 PM): i got really pumped there for a second
Curt (8:21:57 PM): 10 more percent!!?!!1!
Scott (8:21:59 PM): yeah, me too
Scott (8:22:02 PM): sorry
Scott (8:22:19 PM): they just said that where Hillary is leading is in the most conservative part of Iowan
Scott (8:22:26 PM): probably because they know she’d lose the election
Amy (8:22:26 PM): Edwards is showing strength in southern Iowa
Scott (8:22:34 PM): probably because it’s closer to his home
Scott (8:22:36 PM): in the south
Scott (8:22:40 PM): if you know what I’m saying
Amy (8:22:47 PM): Obama is leading in most of the counties
Scott (8:22:58 PM): McCain is in NH right now?
Scott (8:23:00 PM): weird
Scott (8:23:01 PM): what a badass
Scott (8:23:07 PM): not even in Iowa on the night of the caucus
Curt (8:23:07 PM): yeah..and rudy is nowhere to be seen
Curt (8:23:10 PM): he is in florida
Scott (8:23:15 PM): having an affair?
Curt (8:23:22 PM): most likely
Scott (8:23:54 PM): speaking of which
Scott (8:24:05 PM): even though McCain didn’t campaign heavily in Iowa
Amy (8:24:16 PM): Democrats: 69 percent of precincts in now
Scott (8:24:21 PM): he’s in 4th place at 12% to Thompson’s 13%
Curt (8:24:24 PM): awww yeah
Scott (8:24:36 PM): McCain is making the comeback of the year here
Scott (8:24:38 PM): seriously
Curt (8:24:49 PM): Yeah, I could see him getting the nomination
Amy (8:24:56 PM): New Hampshire will be key
Amy (8:25:08 PM): Especially with a Huckabee Iowa win
Curt (8:25:09 PM): It would be no surprise if he won it
Scott (8:25:14 PM): not at all
Scott (8:25:54 PM): THIS JUST IN
Scott (8:25:59 PM): Hunter? Still 0%
Curt (8:26:20 PM): damn son
Curt (8:26:28 PM): looks my allowance money was put on the wrong man
Amy (8:27:01 PM): THIS JUST IN: Scott is going to the bathroom
Curt (8:27:08 PM): I really have to pee too
Curt (8:27:16 PM): I got starbucks earlier
Amy (8:27:21 PM): uh oh.

Amy (8:27:47 PM): Democratic polls are at 73%
Amy (8:27:52 PM): still the same percentages
Curt (8:28:07 PM): where is that at?
Curt (8:28:15 PM): i see 66% from the des moines register
Amy (8:28:19 PM): THIS JUST IN: Obama will win, according to CNN projections!
Curt (8:28:27 PM): I am going to cry
Amy (8:29:10 PM): This is still with Obama at 35%
Amy (8:29:16 PM): but CNN believes he will be the winner
Curt (8:30:12 PM): i have been wearing my shirt all day
Curt (8:30:18 PM): my boss eventually told me i had to change
Amy (8:30:23 PM): haha
Amy (8:30:27 PM): this is a killer for Hillary
Curt (8:30:44 PM): I wonder how much effect Kucinich had on all of this?
Amy (8:30:50 PM): and Richardson
Curt (8:30:53 PM): i have to think at least a couple percentage points
Curt (8:31:03 PM): with his pseudo endorsement of obama
Curt (8:31:09 PM): is Scott pooping?
Amy (8:31:11 PM): yes.
Scott (8:31:14 PM): just got back
Scott (8:31:16 PM):
Scott (8:31:29 PM): Looks like both Iowa and I are getting rid of our shit
Amy (8:32:16 PM): Obama is up to 36%
Amy (8:32:20 PM): with 77% of results
Curt (8:32:23 PM): if I learned anything from zefrank…since i had starbucks i will be getting rid of some too
Scott (8:32:26 PM): in a state that is 95% white
Curt (8:32:54 PM): so much for people being afraid to vote for an african-american
Amy (8:33:18 PM): especially in iowa! if he can win there, he can take plenty of other states too.
Scott (8:33:36 PM): well, a win in NH could really help
Scott (8:33:53 PM): Clinton wins in NH and it could still be anyone’s game
Scott (8:34:11 PM): although, it’s worth noting, that he hasn’t taken Iowa yet
Curt (8:34:12 PM): Yeah, it will be hard to beat her there
Scott (8:34:23 PM): hopefully this win in Iowa will help
Amy (8:35:39 PM): 65% of Republican results in right now
Curt (8:35:44 PM): 78% of Democratic precincts, Obama 36%, Edwards 31%, Clinton 30%
Curt (8:36:34 PM): 65% of Republican’s have reported in: Huckabee 34%, Romney 25%, Thompson 14%, McCain 13%, and Paul 10%
Curt (8:36:54 PM): Rudy, wherever you are at the back of the pack with a measly 4%
Amy (8:38:02 PM): wow, Ron Paul getting ahead of Rudy!
Scott (8:38:07 PM): way to go
Scott (8:38:20 PM): even though we all know he has no chance in hell at getting the GOP nomination
Curt (8:38:51 PM): Yes of course
Amy (8:39:05 PM): Obama is up to 37% with 82% results in
Curt (8:39:06 PM): I could see him taking 5-10% nationally if he goes independent
Scott (8:40:11 PM): among 12-24 year old voters
Scott (8:40:14 PM): ha
Scott (8:40:16 PM): excuse me
Scott (8:40:20 PM): 18-24 year old voters
Scott (8:40:26 PM): Clinton isn’t even in the top 3
Curt (8:40:36 PM): and users
Scott (8:40:41 PM): Obama has 41% of independent vote
Scott (8:40:48 PM): which is over 40% of NH
Amy (8:45:12 PM): Hillary takes 3rd place among independent voters
Amy (8:45:48 PM): things are getting closer to being done, with 86% of polls in for the democrats
Amy (8:46:03 PM): up to 67% of precincts for the republicans
Amy (8:46:49 PM): Guliani is now trying to say that Iowa doesn’t mean anything
Amy (8:47:01 PM): because he has 4%…ouch.
Curt (8:47:32 PM): Although, Giuliani hasn’t campaigned in Iowa at all..he has always been in that mindset
Amy (8:47:40 PM): By paying attention to other states, Rudy thinks his strategy will end up paying off
Curt (8:47:55 PM): He isn’t doing that bad nationally
Scott (8:47:59 PM): exactly
Curt (8:48:03 PM): but, i try not to pay attention to polls
Scott (8:48:17 PM): we’ll see if any candidates get surges from winning the early states
Scott (8:48:30 PM): which will help propel them past Giuliani nationally
Curt (8:50:24 PM): I’m surprised Romney didn’t do better

Scott (8:50:25 PM): things are calming down a little, so let’s talk about what this means for the future if the results ending up the way they’re looking now
Curt (850:50 PM): I have a friend who is a Romney volunteer and he was telling me about the massive campaign team they had down there
Scott 8:51:02 PM): ouch
Scott(8:51:05 PM): that can’t feel great right now
Scott (8:51:14 PM): Romney is a DISTANT second
Curt (8:51:17 PM): I mean, a precinct captain in every single precinct
Curt (8:51:22 PM): Huckabee had like…a handful
Curt (8:51:23 PM): no lie
Amy (8:51:30 PM): i’m curious about how close clinton and edwards are
Scott (8:51:43 PM): this opens the door for McCain to gain a little strength in NH against Romney
Scott (8:51:54 PM): it’ll be hard for Romney to lose both early states
Curt (8:54:13 PM): If Edwards could win an early state, he’s right back in it. It wouldn’t be surprising at all to see him get the nomination
Curt (8:54:20 PM): even though all the focus has been on Obama and Clinton
Scott (8:54:39 PM): yeah, that’d be nice if Hillary got 3rd
Amy (8:55:07 PM): both obama and clinton would probably much rather run against edwards instead of each other
Scott (8:55:52 PM): I don’t know, both Edwards and Obama cancel each other out a little
Scott (8:56:13 PM): make no mistake, Obama or Edwards would be doing FAR better against Hillary if the other one wasn’t there
Curt (8:56:58 PM): Yeah I agree, I think Edwards takes more heat away from Obama than Hillary does
Curt (8:57:07 PM): Obama and Hillary seem to attract different groups
Curt (8:57:19 PM): whereas there are a lot of people who like both Edwards and Obama
Curt (8:57:26 PM): For example, me
Scott (8:57:47 PM): exactly both Edwards and Obama are the change candidates
Scott (8:58:03 PM): they’re splitting the vote of people who don’t want “just another Clinton”
Scott (8:58:12 PM): I think Obama would be running away with this if it wasn’t for Edwards
Scott (8:58:14 PM): and vice versa
Curt (8:58:14 PM): precisely

Amy (8:59:31 PM): latest numbers: 92% of democratic precincts in
Amy (8:59:43 PM): still 37% obama, and 30% for both clinton and edwards
Amy (8:59:55 PM): 72% of republican precincts
Amy (9:00:16 PM): 34% for huckabee, 25% romney, 14% for thompson, 13% mccain
Curt (9:00:20 PM): Edwards ahead by 9 precincts mind you
Amy (9:00:39 PM): obama won all 5 of the biggest counties
Amy (9:00:43 PM): he won in des moines
Scott (9:02:32 PM): I used to live there
Amy (9:02:36 PM): yay.
Scott (9:02:58 PM): CNN is trying some black magic special effects right now
Scott (9:03:02 PM): looks like shit
Curt (9:03:55 PM): Huckabee cleaned up in Polk County, the largest, by a margin of 13%
Scott (9:04:19 PM): good thing the caucus wasn’t on Sunday morning for him
Amy (9:04:29 PM): even among women in these caucuses, obama beat clinton
Scott (9:04:36 PM): I can see why
Curt (9:04:37 PM): He wouldn’t have known until after services
Scott (9:04:38 PM): he’s so handsome
Amy (9:04:38 PM): this is her target audience. what now?
Curt (9:04:49 PM): Now she gets dirtier?
Scott (9:04:54 PM): ugh
Scott (9:04:56 PM): bad mental image
Curt (9:05:01 PM): Barack HUSSEIN Obama? what does that mean!!?!?!11
Scott (9:05:09 PM): ha, I know
Scott (9:05:11 PM): they love his name
Curt (9:05:24 PM): What a joke
Scott (9:05:26 PM): Obama is a terrorist: confirmed
Curt (9:05:35 PM): or even better “I don’t want a muslim president”
Curt (9:05:39 PM): Give me a break
Curt (9:07:30 PM): “To project primaries and caucuses, CNN and its election experts use scientific statistical procedures to make estimates of the final vote count in each race.”
Curt (9:07:32 PM): “CNN will broadcast a projected winner only after an extensive review of data from a number of sources.”
Curt (9:08:07 PM): Basically…they call it when they don’t have to worry about covering their asses
Scott (9:08:13 PM): ha
Scott (9:08:15 PM): exactly
Scott (9:08:25 PM): barely “predicting”
Amy (9:08:52 PM): there are 2,054,843 registered voters in iowa
Amy (9:09:10 PM): over 200,000 Democrats came out to the caucuses tonight
Curt (9:09:20 PM): so 10%
Amy (9:09:24 PM): still a sad percentage
Scott (9:09:26 PM): hooray..
Curt (9:09:29 PM): I had heard 5%
Curt (9:09:32 PM): were going to come out
Scott (9:09:44 PM): well, I guess the weather wasn’t too bad
Scott (9:09:50 PM): and nobody cared about Kansas in the orange bowl
Curt (9:10:21 PM): they’re up 17-7 at half time
Curt (9:10:23 PM): thanks for reminding me
Amy (9:13:52 PM): edwards is going to talk now
Scott (9:14:22 PM): he’s pretty happy with 2nd
Scott (9:14:38 PM): they just introduced him as the “next president of the united states”
Scott (9:14:48 PM): cute
Curt (9:14:51 PM): waaa waaa
Scott (9:14:57 PM): his intro lady did
Amy (9:15:04 PM): that is, his wife
Curt (9:15:08 PM): haha
Scott (9:15:11 PM): must be the cancer talking
Curt (9:15:20 PM): then did she pull a borat “nnnaaaahhht”
Scott (9:16:01 PM): Well, listening to Edwards, you’d think he won
Curt (9:16:24 PM): Even though he just lost a state that he has been campaigning in for like 40 years
Scott (9:16:38 PM): He’s bringing up that girl you posted about the other day
Scott (9:16:41 PM): the health care story
Curt (9:16:45 PM): Nataline
Scott (9:16:51 PM): yeah
Curt (9:17:14 PM): I mean, Edwards should have cleaned up in Iowa as much time as he has spent there
Curt (9:17:29 PM): He has been there since 99-00
Scott (9:17:37 PM): he was too negative lately
Scott (9:17:41 PM): Obama stole his thunder
Curt (9:17:45 PM): Yeah, he changed his focus
Curt (9:17:51 PM): HOPE
Curt (9:17:58 PM): fired up, and ready to go!
Scott (9:19:45 PM): Edwards’ speech is actually pretty good
Curt (9:21:57 PM): that is one of Obama’s more embarrassing slogans Right now Obama has 14 delegates and Clinton has 13
Curt (9:22:10 PM): So that 7% doesn’t mean as much as it would just looking at the numbers, however, the momentum is what really counts here
Curt (9:22:19 PM): But, people will read the papers tomorrow and see that she got third..and that is what matters
Amy (9:22:22 PM): edwards is really getting fired up here…nice speech actually
Amy (9:23:05 PM): with 95% of precincts, obama is now at 38%
Amy (9:23:18 PM): and clinton down to 29%
Amy (9:23:26 PM): edwards stays steady at 30%
Scott (9:23:27 PM): Happy face emoticon
Scott (9:25:00 PM): McCain just pulled into 3rd
Scott (9:25:04 PM): with 78% reporting in

Curt (9:26:40 PM): nvm
Curt (9:26:46 PM): we are waiting for some punks to get out of here
Curt (9:27:14 PM): Whenever I think of Hillary I think of that song that goes “I’m a bitch” from the 90’s
Scott (9:27:34 PM): that should be her theme song
Curt (9:27:41 PM): play at all her rallies
Scott (9:27:42 PM): there are a LOT of old people around Hillary right now
Curt (9:27:52 PM): Her peers?
Curt (9:27:54 PM): OH SNAP

Scott (9:28:22 PM): he’s not listening
Amy (9:28:38 PM): he just read the “applause” sign in front of him and started clapping
Curt (9:28:46 PM): he is just glad he doesnt have to wear womens clothes as the first lady
Amy (9:28:55 PM): or does he…

Scott (9:29:21 PM): damn straight
Curt (9:29:41 PM): mmk im out for real now
Curt (9:29:43 PM): catchyall later
Scott (9:29:51 PM): she’s saying that they always planned to run a national campaign
Scott (9:29:58 PM): but then why did she dump so much time and money into Iowa?
Amy (9:31:20 PM): getting close here…96% of democratic precincts
Curt (9:33:29 PM): this just in from my friend in Iowa..people are “bawling their eyes out” at the Romney rally in Iowa
Scott (9:33:41 PM): babies
Scott (9:33:55 PM): jk kids, I’d be bawling if Obama lost
Curt (9:33:58 PM): me too
Scott (9:34:44 PM): Hillary is kind of a boring speaker
Scott (9:34:53 PM): she’s definitely not feeling too good right now
Scott (9:35:01 PM): her voice is betraying her
Amy (9:36:03 PM): the end of hillary’s speech…nothing too remarkable there
Amy (9:36:09 PM): still waiting on obama’s speech

Amy (9:36:46 PM): cnn has just reported that chris dodd will drop out of the presidential race
Amy (9:36:55 PM): after moving his entire family to iowa, he will no longer be running
Scott (9:37:04 PM): that has to be a blow
Scott (9:37:13 PM): but seriously, could he have expected better?
Amy (9:38:11 PM): huckabee is ready to talk, with chuck norris by his side
Scott (9:38:47 PM): I’ve never seen Chuck Norris smile like that
Scott (9:39:43 PM): Huckabee is giving the feel good speech of the year right now
Amy (9:39:53 PM): i really like his voice. just that makes me feel good.
Scott (9:39:54 PM): I feel like I have sunshine inside of me right now
Curt (9:55:18 PM): thats why i want romney to win, he is an asshole..and everyone can see that
Scott (9:57:15 PM): McCain just fell to 4th
Scott (9:57:24 PM): Giulliani is 2nd to last
Scott (9:57:29 PM): with only Hunter behind him
Amy (9:57:43 PM): democrat percentages are still the same at 97%
