FIVETHIRTYEIGHT: Sanders did extremely well in the Iowa satellite caucuses (out-of-state caucuses for residents unable to attend; yeah, caucuses must go), so it now a hair away from overtaking Buttigieg in the Iowa Caucus results. Sanders is slightly ahead in both popular measures, and ever so slightly behind in delegates. Both men are going to get a significant number of delegates ... but which will get the actual win? (Remember, Hillary won Iowa in 2016 ... but it was also a slim margin.) FiveThirtyEight currently projects Sanders is the most likely Democratic nominee. That's who Trump wants (so he can bray about socialism, and likely, because he knows a lot of angry centrist Dems will, too, unfortunately) ... but just because he sees Bernie as the weakest, that doesn't mean Bernie is the weakest, or that he will lose.
