For perspective on Iowa’s caucus results last night, I want to remind everyone just how small Iowa is based on population.
There are 281 cities in the United States with larger populations than the number of people who voted last night. This is based on the 2020 census.
So, when we take a step back and think about how small Iowa really is, we begin to realize how ridiculous it is that we allow ourselves to be swayed by 110,000 people in a state with no major metropolitan areas.
I went to Iowa. I love Iowa City. The reality is that Iowa is not representative of the country as a whole. We have to remember that.
