6:01 am

marlie hall, des moines, iowa. >> thereris still no democratic winter in iowa but hillary clinton is claiming victory, but still, there is no clear winner in this. >> there was a small margin between her and bernie sanders there, ted cruz winning the gop, obviously. joined now by political science professor todd shaw. all eyes are on iowa as a predictor as to who will take the presidency but that hasn't been the case the past two years. what does this mean? >> well, iowa has not always been an indicator of what will occur. mike huckabee and rick santorum won iowa in the past and as you know, it did not spur them to victory. iowa is good to win but not an

>> you mentioned barack obama winning iowa in 2008 when hillary clinton lost. it is really, really close between clinton and bernie sanders, but she is claiming victory. what does this mean now for her? >> well, a loss by clinton would mean that sanders is a formable contender in a lot of ways. it is not bad for either camp, but it really was important for sanders to pull out. he puts a lot more emphasis upon new hampshire now where he is ahead in the polls. >> that is his neighborhood. >> right, right. in all these ways it is a draw, even if they are separated by a couple of votes. >> i think a big surprise, donald trump the forerunner coming in behind ted cruz. is that surprising to you? what does that say to you? >> not surprising. ted cruz is a savvy come

he won his texas seat over the establishment. he reaches the roll, thinks about the digital media and places his volunteers where he thinks it will get him the most. he is smart in that regard. donald trump didn't have the ground game to match him in that respect. that is why crews won out. ted cruz and marco rubio have talked about their christian faith. donald trump stumbled a bit in that regard so that made a difference. >> what does it mean for the south carolina primaries. >> south carolina become as firewall for some and a last
6:05 am
in some respect on the democratic side sanders really does need to show he is a contender in south carolina. if you had a new hampshire victory in a south carolina polling event or even a victory, that could be quite a feat, particularly given the majority turnout here in the state. supporters of jeb bush are hoping this is the last prospect in terms of what is occurring, although marco rubio, some politicals in the state are leaning toward rubio. >> all right. thank you so much. the south carolina gop is february 27th we will have an eye on that her and in our state. let's go to he have he have now with a check of the -- let's go to he have he have with a -- efron with a check of the weather. yes. we have columbia checking in
