If some of the coin tosses last night in Iowa went the other way, Hillary Clinton would have lost. Instead, she miraculously won all 6 across the state.
The odds of that happening? 1:64…
According to The Independent:
A coin toss was used to decide whether Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders won at six precincts in the Iowa caucus.
Ms Clinton won six county delegates through coin tosses in Newton, Ames, West Branch and Davenport, as well as two precints in Des Moines, the Des Moines Register reported.
Under Iowa’s Democratic caucus guide, ties between two or more candidates can be determined by a coin toss.
The guide states: “Note: In a case where two or more preference groups are tied for the loss of a delegate, a coin shall be tossed to determine who loses the delegate.”
>>>Update: The delegate numbers reflect some other circle of the messed up Iowa Dem process, so evidently Bernie would not have won this way, but the whole thing is an absolute disgrace, and doesn’t explain the missing precincts or shady out of state involvement! We may never really know who won…
