Iowa Caucus, Early Results

How much power does it suggest when a black man wins a lilly-white state whose coronating power has been criticized because it is so
unrepresentative of the country as a whole?

Has it occured to institutional Republicans yet that seducing and then abandoning evangelicals might have created their worst nightmare: a populist they have already demonized but may have to back as the lesser of two evils -- first in their primaries and (heaven forbid) perhaps even beyond?

Has either party establishment correctly identified that sound as repudiation, and do they know the color of new blood?
