today, we're hearing from governor branstad, who's calling trump's win something of a miracle. governor branstad says enthusiasm for trump's campaign was off the charts. governor branstad has spent months calling for republicans to unite behind trump's campaign. his son, eric, was trump's campaign chief in iowa. " my son, who as the director of the campaign says he's never seen anything like the number of people who called and asked for yard signs. the common working people in this country came out in huge numbers and people that haven't been identified wit there's been speculation that trump could ask governor branstad to be the new ambassador to china. but governor branstad says he's not interested in living overseas, and he's committed to serving the people of iowa. some people are wondering today why so many of the national polls indicated a different outcome in the presidential
poll say there are a few reasons. early voters tended to support hillary clinton. but people who were undecided up close to election day and voted yesterday tended to support donald trump. another reason was the difficulty of polling certain segments of the population in states like wisconsin, michigan, and pennsylvania. "you have to remember it's a snap shot. it's one little picture on three days in which we were polling. with a margin of error it's basically telling yo other issues. it could go within this range, plus or minus 4.4 percent. " budzsiz says it's important to note the margin of error when looking at the polls. and when you consider that, almost all of the polls were very accurate. let's go to weather and meteorologist joe winters. joe, how long can we expect this
through the upcoming weekend. light winds swing to a more southerly direction and pick up to bring highs tomorrow well into the 60s. a cold front swings through the state friday, resulting in slightly cooler weather. the moisture is not available for this front so it remains dry. an early outlook into the weekend gives a frosty start to saturday with 60s back in the forest for sunday. have a great night! tonight: clear. wind: sw 5-10. low: 35 tomorrow: sunny and a little breezy. wind: sw 10-20. high: 64 the university of iowa is investigating a racist message someone wrote on a student's door in a residence hall. the university says someone saw it this morning at the

students- specifically those who attend struggling schools. under no child left behind districts had to set aside money to provide free tutoring to low income students. it also forced schools to bus kids to higher performing schools if their parents asked. with the new federal law, fewer kids are eligible for free tutoring, and students can't transfer out of struggling schools, unless they did so last year. kcrg-tv9's jordee kalk joined us in the studio. jordee, what's the timeline for implementing the every child succeeds act will fully roll out next school year. but before that, many steps need to happen. that's why the iowa department of education is holding public input meetings across the state. " so we have the chance to design a plan that makes sense in the iowa context and the local school context as well." iowa needs to set standards for schools with the new law. it also needs to have a way to hold low performing schools accountable. under no child left behind the
schools were failing, now the states will take on that role. the director of iowa's department of education explained the act to about 50 educators in cedar falls tonight. he said the new law doesn't eliminate standardized testing, which was a cornerstone of no child left behind. children in third through eighth grades still have to take math and reading tests every year. students have to take these tests twice while in high school. " 46:45, "assessment and testing are critically important but it needs to be in balance. and it needs to make students are doing and where they need support and assessment should in line with what's being taught in the classroom " the state department of education says it will take this input to make a draft version of the state law this january. more public input meetings will be held after this. and bruce and beth the final proposal will be made in march. thanks, jordee. people in one tiny community are split down the
