Why is Iowa still not colored yellow on the map of the 2020 Presidential Democratic Primary Election Results?
Is it simply because Dave fears the wrath of them Bernie Bros?

The Associated Press rightly did not declare a winner in the Iowa primary tbh.

Does that have to do with the fact that Bernie won the overall result of the first voting rounds, whereas Pete won the overall result of the second rounds plus the delegation count?

On the CNN map, Iowa is still left black, too.

It has to do with the fact that its impossible to say who won the delegation count, as there were so many mathematical errors made by various people along the process of calculating the results and that we have no idea who was helped by them.

It's nevertheless strange that Dave still hasn't colored Iowa yet, be it yellow or green, as he always chooses the color for each state based on the popular vote of the respective primary result, and never on the basis of its delegation count.

In the 2016 Michigan primary, for instance, Hillary won more delegates than Bernie, but Dave colored Michigan green on the national results map, due to the popular vote.

Or another example: Hillary won the popular vote of the 2008 Nevada caucus, hence the red color on the national results map, despite Obama receiving one delegate more.

Anyway, isn't it disgraceful and embarrassing that Iowa it only seldom manages to deliver accurate figures when it comes to caucuses? Didn't the GOP have similar problems in 2012?
I hope Iowa will face irrevocable revocation of its special privilege of being granted the first-to-go status. 🤬
