The Iowa Caucus was a disaster on every front for the Democrats.
Not only did their inability to report a result make Americans question their ability to run the government, but frontrunner Joe Biden crashed and burned.
And now Joe Biden made this admission about Iowa. Here is why his campaign is doomed.
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s pitiful performance in Iowa quickly overtook the Democrats’ caucus meltdown.
Despite there not being full results more than two days after the caucus, what vote totals were reported represented a disaster for Joe Biden.
Biden sat in fourth place with a pathetic 14 percent of the vote.
That put Biden over 21,000 votes behind Bernie Sanders and just 2,500 votes above the fifth place finisher Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.
There was no way to spin the results other than a complete debacle for Biden.
Biden entered Iowa as a two-term Vice President on a ticket that carried Iowa in two blow-out General Election wins.
And for two weeks before the caucus Biden had Iowa all to himself as Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Amy Klobuchar were anchored in Washington, D.C. during the impeachment trial.
At a campaign event in Iowa, Biden was forced to admit the truth about the caucus results.
The former Vice President called the results in Iowa a “gut punch.”
“I am not going to sugarcoat it. We took a gut punch in Iowa. The whole process took a gut punch. But look, this isn’t the first time in my life I’ve been knocked down,” Biden told his dwindling number of supporters.
Iowa was a disaster for Biden not just because the candidate making their argument on “electability” finished a distant fourth.
It also put Biden’s campaign on life support because the former Vice President entered January with just nine million dollars cash on hand.
Biden is counting on a big Super Tuesday when 16 states vote on March 3 to propel him to the nomination.
Biden already struggled to raise money and donors will not pour good money after bad if Biden keeps losing in the early states.
The former Vice President may limp in to Super Tuesday, but he will not have the resources to compete with Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, or Mike Bloomberg.
