Hillary Clinton squeaked by in Iowa last night. The vote was so close that in several precincts the winner had to be decided by a coin toss, but the “luck of the Clintons” still shines on them:

Not only that, but after each coin toss, the Clintons invested each flipped quarter in cattle futures and turned them into a few hundred thousand dollars.
On the GOP side, Ted Cruz beat Donald Trump and Marco Rubio by several thousand votes.
Trump’s speech last night was actually fairly gracious, but it was inevitable that he’d start taking it out on voters at some point:
I don't believe I have been given any credit by the voters for self-funding my campaign, the only one. I will keep doing, but not worth it!

That’s just one notch above, “voters, you’re fired!”
Remember when I said Trump was fairly gracious after losing to Cruz? That didn’t last long:
Ted Cruz didn't win Iowa, he stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong and why he got far more votes than anticipated. Bad!
