Summary

The state party was releasing results on a rolling basis after the Iowa Democratic Party said an app it was using to report precinct results had a coding error. The party stressed that the flaw didn't impact the accuracy of the data that had been collected and said there was no sign of hacking.Campaigning in New Hampshire on Wednesday, Biden called the results a "gut punch." Bernie Sanders chipped away at Pete Buttigieg's already razor-thin lead in State Delegate Equivalents when the Iowa Democratic Party released another update late Wednesday night. This is the total that determines the winner of the Iowa caucuses.The state party is releasing results on a rolling basis days after the caucuses because of technical problems Monday.— Adam Brewster and Caroline Linton Ed O'Keefe contributed.More results from the Iowa caucuses will be released Wednesday afternoon, a senior Democratic Party official tells CBS News. On Caucus Night, county chairs were recruiting volunteers to go to offer help to the IDP.Even though before this year, the precinct numbers were reported by phone, rather than through an app, the party had trouble keeping up with the volume of calls, putting caucus chairs on hold for over an hour in some cases.— Musadiq Bidar contributed.With results from 71% of Iowa's precincts announced, Pete Buttigieg has a slight state delegate edge over Bernie Sanders but it's the other way around in the popular vote. Pete Buttigieg took the stage before supporters in New Hampshire to tout results from more than half of precincts in Iowa that put him in a tight race with Bernie Sanders for the lead in the state."A little later than we anticipated, but better late than never, official, verified caucus results are coming in from the state of Iowa," Buttigieg said. "This is what we have been working more than a year to convince our former Americans on, that a new and better vision can bring about a new and better day."A day after reporting problems plagued the Iowa caucuses and delayed any official results in the nation's first contest for president, the Iowa Democratic Party has begun to release results, showing Pete Buttigieg and Senator Bernie Sanders in a tight race for the lead.With 62% of precincts in, Pete Buttigieg has an estimated 26.9% of state delegates, a slight lead over Senator Bernie Sanders, who has 25.1%. I think that's an unfair thing to try to do."Sanders also criticized Buttigieg for declaring victory in Iowa last night, even though no official results were publicly available."I don't know how anybody declares victory before you have an official statement from the election results, we're not even declaring victory," Sanders said.The tech company behind the app built to report the results of the Iowa caucuses said the problem with the app was in its process to transmit data to the Iowa Democratic Party.Shadow, a for-profit technology company, broke its silence in the wake of the Iowa caucuses with a series of tweets that described the breakdown in the reporting of results."We sincerely regret the delay in the reporting of the results of last night's Iowa caucuses and the uncertainty it has caused to the candidates, their campaigns, and Democratic caucus-goers," the company said. We take these issues very seriously, and are committed to improving and evolving to support the Democratic Party's goal of modernizing its election processes." While some precinct chairs said they were able to use the app without any issues, others ran into problems as they attempted to report caucus results to the state Democratic party. Those who attempted to call results in using the Iowa Democratic Party Caucus Hotline faced long wait times.— Melissa QuinnThe Iowa Democratic Party and Nevada State Democratic Party contracted with Shadow Inc., a progressive tech startup headed by Hillary Clinton's top developer in 2016, to build a mobile app to help the parties report results and support volunteers on caucus night, two Democrats familiar with the decision told CBS News.The firm received $58,000 from Nevada's state party last summer for "technology services," and more than $62,000 from Iowa's party for "website development."Three Democrats in Nevada confirmed Tuesday that the app had played a central role in caucus chair training in the state ahead of Caucus Day, with volunteers given multiple opportunities to test out the app in person. As in Iowa, the software would have assisted Nevada Democrats in their upcoming contest to report unofficial winners and losers on the night of the caucus, backed up by paper records for the official certification of the results.Several campaigns have also purchased services from Shadow, mostly for "non-federal digital communications." The company, which touts itself as building a "long-term, side-by-side 'Shadow' of tech infrastructure to the Democratic Party and the progressive community," advertises text message and data services separate from the apps developed for the state parties.Read more here.The Nevada State Democratic Party is promising that when it comes time for its own caucuses later this month, there will not be a repeat of the chaos in Iowa."NV Dems can confidently say that what happened in the Iowa caucus last night will not happen in Nevada on February 22nd," state party chair William McCurdy said in a statement. He also warned that efforts to undermine U.S. elections, including through online disinformation campaigns, remain a threat."Those threats are out there, they remain out there, and there are forces — particularly foreign forces — that want to undermine Americans' confidence," Warner, of Virginia, said.The Iowa Democratic Party told campaigns that "more than 50% of all the results" of Monday's caucuses will be released at 5 p.m. ET.The IDP said on a phone briefing with reporters that it's "continuing to work through the process" and offered no timetable on when the rest of the results would be released.— Cara Korte, Musadiq Bidar and Adam BrewsterThe Iowa Democratic Party has identified the reason for inconsistencies in the data from the caucuses Monday night, pointing to a fault with the app used to report the results. The IDP said that the required paper documentation of the caucuses meant that it was "able to verify that the data recorded in the app and used to calculate State Delegate Equivalents is valid and accurate."Iowa Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst and Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds defended the caucuses and Iowa's privileged spot in the presidential nominating process in a statement they released Tuesday about the delay in reporting the results."Iowans and all Americans should know we have complete confidence that every last vote will be counted and every last voice will be heard," they wrote.Reynolds, Grassley and Ernst, all Republicans, declined to criticize Democrats, and said that the process "is not suffering because of a short delay in knowing the final results." They also noted that the caucuses are supported by President Trump, who tweeted about the caucuses and also blamed Democrats for the delay. Important tradition!"Mindful that the reporting failures would prompt more questions about whether Iowa should continue to be the first state to vet presidential nominees, Reynolds, Ernst and Grassley said of their state, "Iowa's large population of independent voters and its practice of careful deliberation contributes greatly to the national presidential primary and makes it the ideal state to kick off the nominating process."The Iowa Democratic Party chair Troy Price said just after 2 a.m. ET  that results will be provided "later today," although he did not specify what time.Price said he wanted to emphasize this is a "reporting issue, not a hack" and "this is why we have a paper trail." Price said they are "validating every piece of data against our paper trail" and they are updating the campaigns. — Ed O'Keefe   As the Iowa Democratic Party worked to validate the results from the state's 1,678 precincts, Pete Buttigieg's campaign shared what it said are results from specific precincts across the state.Ben Halle, the Iowa communications director for the former South Bend mayor, posted on Twitter what he claimed were caucus math worksheets from more than  a dozen precincts that Halle said he won.UPDATE: @PeteButtigieg won this precinct in Cedar County –– a county that swung from Obama to Trump by 23 points in 2016. "We don't know all the results, but we know that by the time it's all said and done, Iowa you have shocked the nation." In fact, no results at all had posted on the Iowa Democratic Party website when Buttigieg made his speech, and they have still not posted because of problems the IDP had with "inconsistencies" in the reporting of the caucus results.Buttigieg has been pitching  himself to voters as a candidate who can pull in moderates and "what we like to call future former Republicans," and unite the country against President Trump in November. What we know right now is that around 25% of precincts have reported, and early data indicates turnout is on pace for 2016."The IDP had said it would offer more transparency this year than in prior years, disclosing first-preference results, the final alignment of the caucus-goers and the projected number of state party convention delegates candidates will get, based on the precinct caucus results.The Democratic National Committee explained to CBS News that "quality control" means that party officials are combing through the reported data for discrepancies that could be related to human error. California is a very big state with a lot of delegates, so you'd obviously come here more," he told CBS News.Bloomberg said he isn't worried about Monday night's results in Iowa, and added that he is more interested in traveling the country and talking to voters, not just in the Super Tuesday states, but also in the key battleground states Democrats need to win back to defeat President Trump. CBS News estimates a four-way race between Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren for initial preference.The majority of Iowa caucus-goers said they would rather see the Democratic Party nominate a candidate who can beat Donald Trump (61%) as opposed to a candidate who agrees with them on major issues. They told CBS News' Janet Shamlian that each will caucus for a Democrat in Iowa."I think all of them can beat Donald Trump," said 33-year-old Walsh-Rosmann.She's a mother of two who thinks Elizabeth Warren can revitalize farm country."I want to make sure that people my age and peers are coming back and they have a reason to come back to rural America," she said.Henning, 72, has only decided she's not supporting Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders."My issues are their age, their health and their stamina," Henning said. 🤣 🍔 🍟 🤣 pic.twitter.com/cS7lbQ5U9ROn caucus night, the Iowa Democratic Party will release three sets of results: the popular vote from the first alignment, the popular vote after the realignment, and the number of state delegate equivalents a candidate wins. It looks like a close contest heading in, and the top candidates are all poised to win national delegates.To show what could happen — and more importantly, why — we continued interviewing likely caucus-goers this week for their first- and second-choice preferences in our polling, then combined it with data on Iowa voters generally, and how the caucus system works across the state's counties and districts.Monday dawns with Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden even in first-choice support at 25% each in our baseline model, Pete Buttigieg very close behind at 21%, and Elizabeth Warren at 16%, also in position to accrue some national delegates.
