It took nearly a week to get 100 percent of Iowa Democratic Caucus results after the U.S. Presidential Primary Elections began on Feb. 3 in Iowa, and these are just “revised” results.

As of 9:28 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 9, the “corrected” Democratic Party results as follows:

Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, led with 26.2 percent of the State Delegate Equivalents (SDE).

However, a winner was not declared due to caucus problems ranging from a new smart phone app having coding issues that delayed results to potential data inconsistencies.

Vermont’s U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders was a close second with 26.1 percent.

Massachusetts’ U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren received 18 percent; former U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden, 15.8 percent; and Minnesota’s U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, 12.3 percent.

American entrepreneur Andrew Yang had 1 percent and American philanthropist Tom Steyer 0.3 percent.

Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, former Maryland U.S. Representative John Delaney, Colorado’s U.S. Senator Michael Bennet, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Hawaii’s U.S. Representative Tulsi Gabbard received none.

On Sunday evening, Iowa Democratic Party officials announced Buttigieg was given 14 delegates; Sanders, 12 delegates; Warren, eight; Biden, six; and Klobuchar, one.

On Monday, both Sanders and Buttigieg requested a recanvass of the the Iowa Caucus results.

According to www.thecaucuses.org, which the Iowa Democratic Party website referred people to for results, in Plymouth County, Buttigieg was the top vote getter. Coming in second was Joe Biden, followed by Bernie Sanders. Candidates Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar tied for fourth and Andrew Yang was fifth.

Republican Results

According to an Iowa Republican Party press release, U.S. President Donald Trump received 97.14 percent, 31,421 of the 32,345 votes cast for the Republican presidential ticket.

Former Massachusetts Governor William Weld received 1.31 percent, 425 votes, and former Illinois U.S. Representative Joe Walsh, 1.08 percent, 348 votes.

In Plymouth County, Trump received 363 votes and William “Bill” Weld received 1. Walsh received none.

With Iowa’s 40 delegates, Trump received 39 and Weld one.
