Projection: Sanders to Win Iowa
Reviewing the figures of the counties remaining to be counted, it appears that Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will narrowly eke out Hillary Clinton at tonight's Iowa caucuses. The precincts left to be counted seem to heavily favor Sanders and offer him victory tonight.
As of 11:06 there are just 9.6% of caucuses left to be counted, with Sanders behind by 0.2%. The counties still out for the count appear to be heavily assisting Sanders, with his total to soon overtake Clinton's.
