3 statewide... both ted cruz and hillary clinton won very narrow victories... but what about here in siouxland?. 3 our nick popham joins us live now with those results... as well as a couple other interesting tidbits from caucus night. nick? 3 larry, diana... last night featured surprisingly close races on both sides here in northwest iowa...and some equally surprising winners in the three biggest counties. 3 final results show that in woodbury and sioux county- democrats felt the bern as vermont senator bernie sanders won the majority of both counties.former secretary of state hillary clinton found success in plymouth county after getting support from 55 percent of caucus goers.those precincts with slashed black lines indicate that both sanders and clinton were tied. on the gop side-even with the overall lead in iowa-ted cruz did not gain the most supporters in siouxland as donald trump secured both woodbury and plymouth county.
was able to beat trump in sioux county... getting 33 percent of the vote. surprisingly- mr. trump came in fourth here losing to cruz, florida senator marco rubio and doctor ben carson.another surprising thing last night was that a few delegates for the county convention were given to hillary clinton by chance.in a few precincts-many people were questioning the results after some participants had left.as a result-the delegates were given to clinton after her side won a coin flip. 3 the coin flips in those five precincts however did not significantly impact clinton's win in iowa-even though that win was by less than half of one percent.larry, diana? 3 now that the iowa caucus is in the rear-view mirror pundits say *trust* in a candidate played a significant role.our national correspondent jeff barnd sat down with a political expert..

of trouble with."/bridge/"even though mr. trump attracts large crowds to his rallies largely due to his *celebrity status. the gop has a very core religious element to it. and as part of that republican world view.. trust is absolutely essential."on the democratic side... the e-mail scandal continues to dog secretary clinton's campaign. hudak says that *in part* *could* explain why senator bernie sanders came so close to winning iowa. and hudak beleives looking forward, hillary clinton *must* win the trust of a *major* part of the electorate: the independent voters..sot hudak"the way that this investigation continues to play out.. and the way the clinton campaign will explain it is going to be fundamental for how independents perceive clinton."hudak says hillary clinton *and* donald trump... though *popular* figures... need to *earn* voters trust if they're to win the nomination of their respective parties this summer.in washington, i'm jeff barnd reporting. 3 3 still to come tonight on siouxland news at ten... 3 ...why the families of 12
