AP Explains: New rules could muddle results of Iowa caucuses
WASHINGTON (AP) — For the first time, the Iowa Democratic Party will report three sets of results from its presidential caucuses. And there’s no guarantee that all three will show the same winner. Each set of results represents a different stage of voting in the caucus process. The new rules for Monday’s contest were mandated by the Democratic National Committee in a bid to make the process more transparent. The Associated Press will report all three results but will only declare a winner in Iowa based on the number of state delegates won by each candidate.
