notes: lets take a look at our coverage for the day. here are the highlights but we will follow each candidate. lets start with dave price. he will in the spot i am standing in right now. onto, donald trump he will be at the sheridan in west des moines with sonya hetisuhen. right behind him in the polls is ted cruz and he will be at the fairgrounds and stephanie moore will be giving us the lastest from his camp. on the dems side, hilary clinton will be at drake, in the olsted center. lynn melling will live from there and to close out bernie sanders will setup his hq today from the airport holiday inn. our jannay towne will be tracking the results with him. from most experts we talk to this is shaping up to be an all timer.

caucus but the tight races on both sides have people excited. but the year that keeps coming up when i talk with professor is 1988 and the similarities are striking. we all know this year, the gop has a packed field and no one knows who will come out on top. the dems had that issue in 1988 with 8 candidates. richard gephardt ended up winning that year. its a much different on the dem side with just a 2 horse race with sanders and clinton. the republicans, dealt with that in 88 too. with bob dole and bush sr. dole won that year with almost 40 percent of the vote. but where this resembles 1988 most is the amount of media here. "to me the turning point was 1988... a number of democrats running, so..." despite the push from campaigns, turnout might not reach 2008's
6:05 am
numbers. "the sense is it won't reach 2008 numbers, those were such historic numbers for turnout. the number of candidates, you would think turnout would be higher because of the number of candidates, but i'm not hearing a lot of that being true." in 2008, a record number of iowans turned out to caucus -- about 240- thousand democrats and 120- thousand republicans. but so far this year, not as many new voters are registering. high caucus turn out will most benefit candidates who are relying on new caucus goers... like bernie sanders, donald trump and even
6:06 am
you can still register at your precinct caucus night. to keep in mind.. you have to be 18 or older by election day, which is november eighth. you have to be a registered republican or democrat. you have to be in the door ready to go by 7 p-m. so plan to get there early, especially if you need to register. you can find your precinct by visiting iowa democrats dot org or iowa g-o-p dot org. we put those links on our website at w-h-o t-v dot com. a final set of polls is showing where candidates fall among iowans... according to the des moines register's final iowa poll, hillary clinton is holding onto a slight lead... she's up 3-points on senator bernie sanders.. within the poll's margin of error. as for republicans... it appears the race is donald trump's to lose. he's now five points ahead of senator ted cruz... and 13-points ahead of senator marco rubio.
6:07 am
controversy on caucus day... iowa secretary of state paul pate is criticizing his campaign for this mailer... in addition to reading "voter violation"... it also gives voters a score... and tells recipients to caucus in order to improve their score... channel 13's political director sat down with cruz who said he's not sorry for sending out the mailers. "i will apologize to no one for using every tool we can to encourage people to come out and vote for the caucuses. our country is in crisis." cruz fired up iowans during a late night rally at the iowa fairgrounds yesterday. the senator will be there again tonight for his caucus night watch

that put seven million out of work and millions out of their homes. how does wall street get away with it? millions in campaign contributions and speaking fees. our economy works for wall street because it's rigged by wall street. and that's the problem. as long as washington is bought and paid for, we can't build an economy that works for people.
6:10 am
the time has come to make a choice... about which candidate can actually make a difference for you. in a world as complex as this, we need a president as experienced as hillary. in the situation room... at the negotiating table... and always on your side... fighting for children and families. with a real plan to get incomes rising... ...reduce drug prices... ...win equal pay for women... ...and protect social security and medicare for seniors. she'll build on obamacare, not start over. break through the gridlock, not add to it. defend planned parenthood, not attack it. stand up to the gun lobby, not protect it. lead on foreign policy, not ignore it. we need a president with the experience and determination to get the job done.

out to caucus... in 2008, a record number turned out to caucus. that included about 240-thousand democrats and 120-thousand republicans. this year... it doesn't look as positive. the sense is turnout won't be as high, based on how many have registered so far. but political experts say candidates rely on those new caucus goers... especially bernie sanders, donald trump and ted cruz. they say high caucus turnout will benefit them the most, but they hope all iowans take advantage of their turn in the spotlight. "it's such a unique opportunity we have here in iowa. it's often reported that fewer people than you might think show up for the iowa caucuses. so, i hope we can prove the national media wrong here and have a great turnout on both sides to show all of this attention is really, we deserve it." you can still register at the door. we put a list of precinct
