in iowa tonight the time for talk is done ...or almost done...and it's time to caucus...to vote. the winner in each party gets a big boost going into new hampshire and the rest of the primaries. but will the winners be named trump or cruz ...clinton or sanders? steve handelsman reports. 38-50 to power up her volunteers to get out the vote, tonight, hillary clinton brought donuts. presidential candidate :06-:08 "i'm feeling so energized because of all of you!" she has slipped to a slight lead in iowa polls. bernie sanders rallied his volunteers to get out the first time caucusers that he's counting on presidential candidate :18-:21 "we win tonight if voter turnout is high!" his workers are
"i have never felt as strongly about an election as i do this time." sanders has a big lead in new hampshire polls presidential candidate :38-:50 "no, of course not. iowa. but if we end up getting two delegates less than hillary clinton has - why is that the end of the world?" on the republican side, marco rubio visited volunteers presidential candidate :55-:57 "it's going to make a big difference tonight. we're really excited." ted cruz, who rose to a lead in iowa polls... then slipped... was in jefferson presidential candidate 1:02-1:05 "we have now been to all 99 counties in the great state of on evangelicals donald trump today drew a smaller crowd than usual .... hours before trumps needs a big turnout of first time iowa voters. presidential candidate 1:17-1:20 "win, lose, or draw. i love you folks all. i love you all." all eyes on trump tonight. will the leader in gop polling grab his first ever election victory? audio outcue: i'm steve handelsman, nbc news, des moines, iowa. the big vote in iowa is just hours away- and if
some big affects on upcoming upcoming polls. will whitson takes a look- in every poll that's dropped today for iowa and new hampshire- on the gop side, donald trump is leading the pack- but don't take that to mean he has these two states locked up. a quinnipiac poll in iowa has him seven points ahead of texas senator ted cruz- while another by emerson only has a point difference between the two. on the democratic side in iowa- it's the same- quinnipiac has hillary clinton ahead- while emerson favors vermont senator bernie sanders. though in new hampshire polls- sanders is well ahead of clinton. another candidate to keep an eye on is florida senator marco rubio. while he sits several points behind ted cruz in iowa- he's seen a lot of momentum in recent weeks, with his poll numbers rising, which could indicate a possible upset- and marco taking the number two slot in iowa. ww, back to you. the iowa caucuses are getting a lot of attention
accurate predictor of the party nominees. and the process that will be underway soon can be messy. jack kuenzie has seen iowa's political process and the caucuses up close. dawndy and judi--on the whole, it's much easier to watch and report the first in the south primary here than it is to be in iowa this time
of year. two reasons---the caucus voting can be confusing and can take a long time to play out, especially on the democratic side. and the weather. shirtsleeves here possibly---parkas and snow chains there. i was working in des moines in 1980 when the idea of the iowa caucuses being important really grabbed the nation's attention. that was a long time ago, but there were similarities to what we're seeing today around iowa. a crowded gop field--- including a celebrity candidate, ronald reagan, a guy named bush, a couple of candidates who'd been
u.s. senators, howard baker and bob dole. reagan stumped through our area a number of times----talking about cutting taxes and big government. he'd been helped to some extent by his roots as a broadcaster at who radio in des moines, where i worked. it helped maybe---but it wasn't enough. reagan ended up losing to george herbert walker bush in a squeaker-----32 to 30 per cent. baker pulled 15 per cent for third place. reagan later said iowa had been a "kick in the pants" for his campaign and by the time it got to south carolina----he clobbered his next closest competitor, governor connally---with 55 per cent of the vote here. bush later dropped out of the race. the democrats were little more predictable----with jimmy carter beating ted kennedy almost two to one. we did get a lot of media attention back then----including in person coverage by some giants of the tv news industry. tom brokaw covered his first iowa caucus vote that year----and he's still doing
