Iowa Caucuses - yea or nay
Listening to NPR last week, I heard a young woman from New Hampshire state that she doesn't consider the Iowa Caucus to be a valid form of polling, and therefore was opposed to all of the attention that was given to the Iowa vote (full disclosure, she was a Clinton supporter, and may have been a bit irked by the outcome in Iowa). Now that the Iowa Caucuses are old news, and the New Hampshire Primaries have wound down, what are your thoughts on caucuses? Is this a valid form of polling? Is this a quaint form of community politics, or are the results inherently skewed? Or are you glad that you don't have to hear any more about Iowa for another 4 years (I wouldn't blame you)?
