Live results, updates from the first in the nation caucuses

Amy Klobuchar climbs in poll, could make it 5-way race


Hours before the caucuses got underway in the United States, Iowans were taking part all over the world. 

Des Moines native Colyn Burbank hosted a mixture of Iowans, observers and press, at his apartment in Glasgow for one of the three International caucus events aimed at helping Democrats pick someone who can beat President Donald Trump in 2020. 

On a blustery and rainy Monday, 20 Iowans showed up at Burbanks’ residence in Scotland’s capital to express their preference for who should be the Democrats’ next standard-bearer. Despite a Friday NBC/WSJ national poll that showed Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden statistically tied, the former vice president did not receive a single vote. 

Sanders garnered the most support, with 9 Iowans backing him to receive the nomination, followed by 6 for Elizabeth Warren and 3 for Pete Buttigieg. One voter chose not to express a second preference after her candidate did not receive enough backing to make it to a second round. Another was unable to vote because she turned up late.
