iowa's role is to thin the field... and they've had that responsibility for many years channel 13's erin kiernan gives us a look at the history of the iowa caucus... most people know the iowa caucuses are the first in the nation test for presidential candidates... but why? some form of a caucus has been taking place here since before iowa even became a state. the gatherings were attended almost exclusively by political insiders and rarely in public. iowa became first in 19-72 as the result of a change in rules by the national democratic party ... it all happened quite by accident. the caucuses didnt get a lot of attention until 19-76. thats the year the republican party of iowa moved its caucuses to the same date as

known southern governor grabbed headlines by coming in second to 'uncommitted'. and the legend of the iowa caucuses was born. throughout the 80s the event grew in stature... but in 19-88 iowa was flooded with candidates as both parties had large fields, and there was record- breaking caucus attendance. congressman dick gehphardt and senator bob dole were the winners, but neither won secured their partys nomination. by contrast - 1992 was basically a 'non event'. president george bush was running unopposed and since senator tom harkin was running the democrats bypassed iowa. in 1996 president bill clinton wasnt facing any challengers but there were nine republicans in the race. senator bob dole won. the 2000 caucuses showcased a fight between vice president al gore and senator bill bradley. texas governor george w. bush came out on top against five other candidates. 2004 was a surprise finish, with sentors jjn kerry and john edwards finishing first and second. former vermontgovernor howard dean came in third.

campaign workers are busier than ever... many working sleepless nights to get their candidate to the top... it all comes to today... all the door knocking and all the calls that volunteers have made for their candidate. channel 13's jannay towne has more on the work that goes on away from the campaign trail. after criss crossing the state.. you'd expect the candidates to be running on fumes heading into today. away from the campaign trail, an army of volunteers is working tirelessly behind the scenes. i probably have four cups of coffee a day. yeah north carolina college student conor janda hopped on a plane to iowa to work for the martin omalley campaign. i usually do calls in the morning and then i go out and then i go out and canvas for a few hours and then i come back and do calls. the senior put his life on hold back home to get iowans ready for caucus

will have a say in who stays and who goes. up to now, donors, polls and party members have had the most influence in who remains a viable candidate. even though the road to the white house begins in iowa... history shows that since the 1970's -- three republicans and five democrats who won here have gone on to win their respective party's nomination. for the republicans, the most recent cnn poll of polls averages in iowa, shows donald trump holding a lead over ted cruz. political analysts say a trump victory comes down to turnout. "turnout becomes important because it'll tell us something about whether he has changed the electorate. i mean, that's the real prospect. can he bring out new voters who haven't voters before?"turnout will also be key for bernie sanders, who is in a virtual dead heat with hillary clinton. "bernie sanders is relying on some notably unreliably voting blocks. he's counting on young voters to come out, he's counting on people who have never caucused before, maybe don't really have an attachment to the democratic party to come out and vote for him."cnn's poll of polls puts clinton just 3- points ahead of sanders among iowa voters.... with
