ted cruz is the winner at 28% with nine precincts reporting in. marco rubio has 23% and in carson is at 9%. they are followed by rand paul, jeb bush, john kasich and carly fiorina. mike huckabee, chris christie, rick santorum and jim gilmore are at the bottom. tom cole it for the democrats with 93% of the precincts reporting, hillary clinton and bernie sanders are within just a few votes of each other. both hovering in at 50% apiece. shelley: wmur political director josh mcelveen has been reporting from iowa since saturday and joins us now live. josh? josh: there' s no shortage of drama in iowa tonight. caucus-goers turned out in record numbers. it was thought to benefit both bernie sanders and donald trump. bernie sanders is given --
everything she can handle, but it' s ted cruz and not donald trump as the choice of iowans tonight. the reality is that this point, donald trump is in danger of finishing in third place here in iowa which would be a disaster for his campaign, behind marco rubio. that would be a big victory for him. they both spoke to their supporters not long ago. text this is the moment they said would never happen. >> we are leaving tonight and tomorrow afternoon we will be in new hampshire and that will be something special. it' s going to be a great week and were going to be appeared next week and i think we will be proclaiming victory, i hope. we will go on to get the republican nomination and we will go on to easily beat hillary or bernie or whoever they throw up there.
their way to new hampshire tonight. a very tight race on the democratic side, a virtual tie between bernie sanders and hillary clinton. for bernie sanders, if he wins tonight, then heads into new hampshire after winning iowa where he has a big lead, suddenly the complexion of the race begins to change and it becomes very interesting. still a large hill for bernie sanders to climb but it definitely will make the race very interesting to watch. it could be a late night for both those candidates. iowa has claimed a couple of casualties, martin o' malley and mike huckabee have said that they have suspended their campaigns and will not be moving on to new hampshire. ted cruz wins the republican i
caucuses are still too close to call. tom cole and a real barnburner out there. outside of the front runners, did anyone else outperform or underperform tonight? josh: you could say that ben carson did pretty well, but he is another nonestablishment pick . he was expected to finish somewhere near the bottom of the pack and he is in fourth place. for tonight, a pretty good performance for ben carson. shelley: joining us to take a closer look at tonight' s results, political analyst scott spradling. ted cruz the big winner tonight, but let' s talk about donald trump. a lot of his campaign was based on the premise that he would bring home the big win. he did not win tonight. scott: does he have to
victory in iowa? it' s a bit of a republican reset button for new hampshire. shelley: what does it mean for ted cruz for his chances in new hampshire? scott: remember the last two i will caucus winners, huckabee and rick santorum could not parlay that into a victory here in new hampshire. it doesn' t necessarily mean crews will do well here. shelley: and a big night for marco rubio. >> he is the establishment pick among the four republicans running. he' s had a very good night and will make a lot of headlines. shelley: martin o' malley is out along with huckabee tonight. let' s talk about hillary clinton, still too close to call in that race. what does it mean in iowa? scott: they split the state in

in the granite state since 1989. opponents of the plan call it inhumane. >> they do not deserve to be trapped, set there for days, no shelter, no water, no food, and have other animals attacking them because they are vulnerable. >> i don' t think the time is right. we are premature in our efforts to try and manage a population that is just getting back on its feet. mike: supporters say there are enough bobcats to support a limited hunt. they also argue that neighboring states have bobcat seasons. >> we hope that you pass this so we can start taking cats and quickly show the public that there' s a lot more cats out there than they realize. >> we, as sportsmen, feel you have an obligation to vote yes, in favor of having a bobcat season. a vote no would be a vote against the very principles that we, as a nation have fought and died for. mike: if approved the proposal
in about two weeks the fish and game commission will vote on it. >> it' s simple. if you don' t want to hunt them or trap them, don' t. but don' t stop those of us who enjoy this pastime and our heritage. >> the overwhelming public outcry is because new hampshire residents do not want their wildlife sold as a commodity. mike: another hearing will be held tomorrow night in lancaster so that people in the north country have a chance to weigh in. live in concord, micron, dove the him you are news 9. shelley: we' re learning more about aaron hernandez' s life in prison thanks to letters he has
