The Des Moines Register reported that Sanders is attracting more first-time caucus-goers than Clinton, “In this cycle, Sanders is attracting more first-time caucusgoers than Clinton. He claims 43 percent of their vote compared to 31 percent for Clinton. He also leads by 23 percentage points with the under-45 crowd and by 21 points among independent voters.”

The closeness of the race in Iowa should increase calls for more Democratic primary debates. Hillary Clinton could lose in Iowa. Her campaign’s momentum is going in the wrong direction. Sanders is attracting new people to process and generating enthusiasm.

Iowa Democrats remain confident that Clinton can win in November if she secures the nomination. Sixty-six percent of respondents felt mostly confident that she could win the general election. Only 24% stated that they felt nervous about her November chances.

The general election confidence in Clinton illustrates that the shift in Iowa is all about the impression that Bernie Sanders is making on Democratic voters. Hillary Clinton isn’t doing anything wrong in the eyes of the majority of Democrats. Bernie Sanders is surging because of the enthusiasm that his campaign is generating.

Sanders has the momentum, and his odds of winning both Iowa and New Hampshire are improving by the day.
