Buttigieg’s Slim Lead Erodes As 96% Of Iowa Reports

CNN reports:

Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders are separated by the slimmest of margins in the latest update to Iowa’s Democratic caucus results. A fresh round of results around 12:15 a.m. ET Thursday showed the former mayor’s state delegate equivalent lead down to 3 over the Vermont senator.

Sanders, meanwhile, maintained a lead of more than 2,000 votes in the final alignment popular vote.

Buttigieg has 26.2% of state delegate equivalents, while Sanders has 26.1%. The Associated Press reported that results had been published from 96.43% of all precincts, but the number of state delegate equivalents still available to be won means they will not yet call a winner in the race.
