Hillary Clinton has a slight lead in the Iowa caucuses in initial preferences based on early entrance poll estimates, followed by Bernie Sanders.
In the final poll ahead of the caucuses, released over the weekend, Clinton and Sanders were in a dead heat. The Des Moines Register-Bloomberg News poll showed Clinton at 45 percent compared to 42 percent for Sanders.
Sanders narrowed the former secretary of state’s national lead less than two weeks before the caucuses.
After Monday night, the next test will be in New Hampshire, the nation’s second nominating contest. There, Sanders leads Clinton by a wide margin, 57 to 34 percent in a CNN-WMUR poll released on Sunday.
