It is past midnight EST, and the results of the Iowa caucus have yet to come in as a comedy of errors has plagued the initial contest between Democrat presidential candidates.
The presidential campaign of Joe Biden has released a statement through their general counsel Dana Remus attempting to explain the bizarre circumstances that have resulted in the long and unprecedented delay.
In the letter, Remus could possibly be making the case that the Biden campaign will ultimately dispute the results when it is all said and done.
BREAKING (CNN): Biden Campaign "Questioning Results" of Iowa Caucus Via Lawyers

“I write on behalf of the Biden for President Campaign regarding the considerable flaws in tonight’s Iowa Caucus reporting system. The app that was intended to relay Caucus results to the Party failed; the Party’s back-up telephonic reporting system likewise has failed. Now, we understand that Caucus Chairs are attempting to – and, in many cases, failing to – report results telephonically to the Party. These acute failures are occurring statewide,” she explained.
“We appreciate that you plan to brief the campaigns momentarily on these issues, and we plan to participate. However, we believe that the campaigns deserve full explanations and relevant information regarding the methods of quality control you are employing, and an opportunity to respond, before any official results are released. We look forward to hearing from you promptly,” Remus continued.
“In the meantime, we are on to New Hampshire, on the road to the most important election of our lifetimes,” she concluded.

Early indicators from the results are that Biden may place as low as fifth place, behind long-shot candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), in the caucus results. This would be a nightmarish result for Biden, who came into the caucus as arguably the front-runner to win the nomination.
Word on the street here in Iowa is a sizable Sanders victory, Biden in 4th or 5th. Results are being held up by Biden campaign concern trolling.

That’s why Biden lawyers want review before release

Pocahontas’ campaign manager has confirmed that Biden is in a distant fourth, according to their estimates of the results. They are calling it a three-person race between Pocahontas, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and homosexual South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
“From what we can tell, Warren, [Bernie] Sanders, and [Pete] Buttigieg, based on our own data and data collected by our own operations and organization, are fighting for the lead and it’s clear that Biden is a distant forth,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s campaign manager Roger Lau’s said to reporters after the candidate proclaimed “we are built for the long haul” to her supporters.
Conspiracy theories may be the only thing to help Biden’s campaign save face from an all-time humiliating performance, which Obama senior advisor David Axelrod has admitted.
Based on the precincts we saw caucus live on TV, @JoeBiden may have caught a huge break with IA reporting snafu. He was able to leave the state with potentially unfriendly results unreported. The tell is that his was the first campaign to send a letter questioning the process.

It probably won’t be long before Biden is blaming this entire debacle on the Russians.
Polls for the Presidential Election Are Tightening, And Fast
This race is getting hot.
New polls for the November presidential election are gravitating in President Donald Trump’s direction, after months of polling that indicated Democratic challenger Joe Biden was dominating the race.
Polls from Rasmussen and the Hill have indicated that the race is close, and even within the margin of error, with the President regaining several percentage points. Polling aggregator RealClearPolitics reveals that recent polls show the President has gained 3-5 percent support.

Polls in battleground states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania show a race that is statistically tied. A Zogby Analytics poll of North Carolina, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania showed a razor-thin race in the latter three states, with Biden leading by no more than three percentage points in all of them.
Trump’s gain in recent rounds of polling may be a product of a refocused campaign strategy, with the President branching out to the constituency of white working class voters that proved essential to his shock 2016 election victory after former campaign manager Brad Parscale was reassigned.
Razor-thin election margins could mean the election is once again decided by the electoral college, as Biden’s lead in national polling places undue consideration on large margins of victory in reliably Democratic states such as California and New York.
Biden has been reluctant to appear in public, scheduling only a handful of events in which he’s received questions from the press. The President’s increasingly focused coronavirus press briefings may have signaled his intention to successfully control the pandemic.
