The results of Monday nights Iowa caucus results are still unknown and are facing an enormous delay after a phone app that was used to calculate the results failed.
MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell, however, weighed in on the “drop” of voters in Iowa, claiming that the “Iowa caucus is essentially the perfect example of systemic racism”.
“The Iowa caucus is essentially the perfect example of systemic racism,” Zerlina Maxwell claimed. “91% of the voters in Iowa are white.”
“The reason why you see a drop in turnout, I’m just speculating here, it could be perhaps that white children are not in the cages,” she guessed.
“So when you’re talking about the tangible pain that black and brown people are feeling, they feel a sense of urgency, because their kids are being put in cages, right?” Zerlina Maxwell assumed. (Continued Below)
As reported by The New York Post for the delay of the Iowa Caucus results:
“The party first blamed unspecified ‘quality checks’ for the massively delayed results before pinning the problem on ‘inconsistencies on the data’ after using a new phone app that reportedly failed. ..Results were expected to start streaming in as Iowans caucused at 7 p.m. local time, with the final results expected around 10 p.m… But only 25 percent of Iowa’s 1,765 precincts had been collected by that point — meaning none of the campaigns could declare victory.”
Officials from Iowa’s Democratic Party told the candidates’ campaigns in a private conference call Tuesday that they planned to release a majority of the results by 5 p.m. EST, as per USA Today. (Video Below)
