beginning to end and this bernie sanders/hillary clinton battle just goes on and on. we've built up for months in this day and in three hours we have the results. i have never been to a caucus in person and i thought it would be interesting if i would take you, our viewers, inside to see how it plays out as we continue to get results coming in. i tuned into the middle school where the governor himself caucuses. it took about two hours for republicans at this des moines elementary school to go through the process. a few were allowed to speak on behalf of the candidate of their choice. >> marco rubio has lived the american dream. >> reporter: then it was time to vote. this is where the governor of iowa, terry branstad, caucuses. he didn't want to say who he voted for. it is a secret ballot, after all. >> i trust the voters of iowa that they'll make a thoughtful intelligent decision and i think we'll see where it goes.
told us yesterday she was going to be here and was true to her word. you were you were probably going with marco rubio? >> yeah. stuck to my word. >> reporter: when all was said and done, the handwritten votes on the paper showed marco rubio the run-away winner with 63 votes. democrats were holding their own caucus. here they needed a microphone. after supporters spoke they moved around the room separating into a couple big groups, one for hillary clinton, the other for bernie sanders. there was another small group for candidate martin o'malley, but after the first count it was clear he had too few supporters to be a viable candidate. now you're the most popular guy in the room. are you going with hillary or bernie? >> i'm torn, but i'm probably going with hillary. >> reporter: proving the polls right this democratic race is neck and neck. this couple remains split. one is thes clinton, the other -- one supports clinton, the other sanders. >> i've got to work on my wife
>> reporter: it took longer than the republicans, but after some creative and confusing math this democratic caucus location sided with hillary clinton. within two to three hours it was all over 2016 in the books and it may go down as a record breaker when it comes to turnout. >> everything that i can see, it's going to be a record turnout. i've never seen as many candidates, nor as big of crowds. >> reporter: that is saying something coming from the governor of iowa. what a thrilling night it has been. so much attention again for months paid on this race. behind me you hear them talking on the stage. we've seen the results trickle in over the past hour or so. the big news from tonight, of course, is that ted cruz knocks out donald trump. marco rubio faring really well coming in third place and the battle on the democratic side, we'll see how that plays out in the days to come.

it was so interesting for me to watch. again i wondered how. i went looking for video of caucuses and didn't find very much, so i was excited to get in there and watch the process. yes, it's organized. there are some methods to the madness. they talk about it. people stand up for their candidate and brief everyone and on the republican side it's a secret ballot. again it's run by the republican party. it was over lickety split. they counted them out. the democratic side it was a bit more raucousous, had to move from -- raucous, had to move from one side of the room to the other, but hillary clinton won at this middle school and it is both as you say a democratic. it's cordial but also engaging and that's a fun thing to watch. again the democrats run one. republicans run the other. watch. look. we'll come back to you in a
