Given the importance of the Iowa caucuses the whole nation’s attention is fixated at this rather small state. There is no denying the fact that it enjoy tremendous amount of influence on the nominating contests. They’ve previously helped knock many candidates out of the race, and elevated other little-known contenders from obscurity.

When it comes to Republican nomination, everyone is eager to know as to how its frontrunner Donald Trump will perform compared to Ted Cruz, his main challenger thus far. Trump is leading Cruz by five percent in latest polls. Despite Trump’s months-long lead in national polls, there’s still a great deal of skepticism from elites about him: perhaps polls overstate his support, perhaps his campaign doesn’t have a good ground game, perhaps his supporters who aren’t regular GOP primary or caucus voters won’t bother to show up, or perhaps the electorate will flock to a more seemingly electable candidate at the last minute.

A report while talking about the organizational structure of both the competitors says, “Since caucus turnout is difficult for pollsters to model and since Ted Cruz is perceived as having a better organization than Trump, much of the political world has long expected Trump to finish second, behind Cruz. Yet Trump has taken the lead in all the most recent polls. That’s a two-edged sword, because it raises the expectations for trump. A second place finish would now be viewed as a disappointment for him. And if Trump comes in third or worse, it will be a disaster for him because it will destroy a central theme of his campaign: that he’s a winner”.

On the other hand it is very close as far as Democratic contenders are concerned. Hillary Clinton enjoys merely two percent lead over her rival Bernie Sanders. There is no denying the fact that Bernie Sanders has suddenly surged to become neck-and-neck with Clinton in Iowa polls after a full year where he was much further behind. Since he’s long been ahead in New Hampshire, he’s now positioned to seriously compete in both early states.
