Clinton Keeps Thin Lead After Iowa Caucus Audit

Iowa Democratic Party officials reviewed the caucus results, and while Clinton's lead shrunk, she still received the most votes.


Hillary Clinton has held on to her win against Bernie Sanders in last week's Iowa caucus.

Clinton earned 700.47 delegate equivalents, or 49.84 percent of the vote, according to the Democratic Party statement on the matter. Rival Bernie Sanders came with 49.59 percent of the vote, a mere quarter point of a percent less than Clinton.

The Iowa Democratic Party reviewed the caucus results after discrepancies were found in the final tally by both the Sanders and Clinton campaigns.

Sanders saw small gains over Clinton, but the new results don't do much to change the number of state delegates that either side gets.

Even Martin O'Malley, who dropped out of the race after the caucus, saw a small gain in delegates.

The caucus is just the first step on the long road to the national convention. For now, Clinton and Sanders are splitting pledged delegates 23-21.
