    Can anyone explain to me how the votes are counted in Iowa? I am confused by the results. How many people live in Iowa anyway? Do they all get a vote in the caucus?

    The repubs' caucus is a "one person, one vote" type. The dems is more convoluted. The folks show up at the caucus location and ballot....candidates with less than viable numbers are then to go to their second choice.

    The results are, I believe, that whoever wins the caucus gets one vote in the final tally. That's why Obama won with numbers in the hundreds, not thousands.
