Iowa Un-Caucus; NH is Next


Monday, January 7th, 2008

We’re looking forward to the New Hampshire primary, but we’re also taking a look back. Despite record-high voter participation in last week’s Iowa caucuses, voter turnout in Iowa didn’t break 17 percent. Watch the video to see who were the un-caucusers, and why.

Yesterday, from New Hampshire, Barnett looked back at Iowa and forward to New Hampshire, as he looked into the voter turnout facts and figures. Also in our video report: more Tim Russert and Sam Donaldson.
