South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg declared himself the winner in Iowa after technical glitches and snafus prevented the state party from announcing any caucus results Monday night.
Buttigieg, who was hoping to get a boost out of the nation's first caucus state to drive past more seasoned rivals, went beyond any of the other Democratic presidential contenders his his caucus-night speech.
'We don't know all of the results. But we do know that by the time it's all said and done, Iowa: you have shocked the nation. Because by all indications we are going on to New Hampshire victorious,' Buttigieg told cheering supporters - in the kind of statement that might ordinarily follow a strong measure of public information.
Instead there was no official result in any form, and the Iowa Democratic Party rushed out a statement promising that they had not been hacked and would now be using paper results with a count which will stretch into daylight on Tuesday morning.

Boot-edge-edge’s campaign reportedly has ties to the app developer, “Shadow.”
With no results in and no poll showing him in even the top 2.
Theirs in as insane party
The Russians hacked the Democrats again!
what a cluster——
You want to do pushups?
Can they ballot harvest the primary? They may be at it all year.
Considering it’s the Democrat party YES everyone wins
Noun. clusterf*** (plural clusterf***s) (slang, vulgar) A chaotic situation where everything seems to go wrong. It is often caused by incompetence, communication failure, or a complex environment.
Fantastic!! So, our future national leader could be a homosexual “married” to a man, and that leader would espouse killing babies up to, during, and immediately after birth (depending on the whim of the woman, because buttplug cares so much about women); what a wonderful world!! /s
They may not be able to count cooked votes
But ... they do an excellent job running (ruining) our country /s
Participation trophies for everyone!
Could explain the delay and why they’re running for cover to get a story out. One or more of the following might have happened:
— Pete and/or other minor/unexpected candidates won or came in second
— Bernie didn’t win or come in second
— Biden finished WAY down the list (like 5th or lower)
— Warren finished lower than Biden
Their so-called “reporting” explanation is a lie. The party said the app was fine but others said it wasn’t. Besides, how hard is it to say, “send the results to this email address:___” and have it done in 15 minutes?
There is definitely something going on here. It isn’t just incompetence. There may have been some technical issues but I’m sure they got results they didn’t expect and it is problematic.
No I’m really the winner
They might :)
That party’s a disaster
Trump’s the winner.
