Today, voters in Iowa will vote for their respective presidential candidates. Recent polls show that Bernie Sanders is leading Hillary Clinton 51% to 43%. Turnout at the Iowa rallies over the weekend would support those polling results.

Bernie Sanders had nearly 4,000 people turn up at his rally in Iowa City over the weekend. There were so many people that several hundred had to be turned away due to max capacity.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton was unable to even fill the bleachers at her last Iowa stop, and barely managed to fill half the room at a the Dubuque 5 Flags Center, with about 200 people.


Monday will tell if the enormous support Sanders seems to have plays out in the voting booths.
