at many of those sites. -- sot -- "tonight is a victory for courageous conservatives across iowa, and all across this great nation." in the republican race -- ted cruz had branded himself as the true conservative in his battle with donald trump. and his retail politics, and heavy courting of the evangelical vote -- gave him a win. meanwhile, trump -- perhaps the most humble we've seen him in this race -- thanked the iowa supporters for his second place finish. -- sot -- "i was told by everybody do not go to iowa. you couldn't finish in the top ten. i said i have friends in iowa, i know a lot of people in iowa, i think they'll really like me." on the democratic side - a virtual tie. hillary clinton did not suffer a loss like 8 years ago, but the results marked a stunning turn from the solid lead she held in the polls here late last year. clinton acknowledging a real challenge from sanders, and sanders applauding how far his

campaigning before the palmetto state's very important primaries. our chad mills talked to a couple of political experts. first question to the experts -- is too much emphasis placed on iowa? political expert scott malyerck... "we put way too much emphasis on the caucuses, i think, because it's really a test of organization ability. can you organize your folks? can you get them to go out and caucus in somebody's home and stick with you?" malyerck points to past g-o-p winners like huckabee and santorum, who ultimately failed to capture the nomination. u-s-c political science todd shaw has a bit of a different take. "iowa is not bellwether in all cases, but let's keep in mind that iowa sort of set a tone for obama's election in 2008 that, if he had

voters in south carolina would have been a little less sanguine about his chances." next question -- could the group of candidates in the south carolina primary be smaller than in iowa and new hampshire? "probably by new hampshire you'll begin to see candidates, particularly, you know, folks who keep making it to the second debate, really think about their chances." "you have to ask yourself, 'do we stick it out? do we hope against all hope that we're going to do well in new hampshire?' i think after new hampshire, you'll definitely start to see people drop out before they get to south carolina." a few other points, shaw says south carolina will become very important to hillary clinton if she does poorly in iowa and new hampshire. "south carolina has to become
