cleveland19.com. >> dan: ryan, i am kind of a political dork at this time. this is our superbowl for iowans like myself. i have been to caucuses and it is grassroots. you show up to your high school or gymnasium and walk in and ask if you are democrat or republican and split off on sides and you sit down and hammer it out. people give speeches and you debate on it. it is an interesting process. where will you be tonight? how will you take this all in? >> i will be here in front of your beautiful picturesque state capitol, dan, watching the returns come in from around the country. you are lucky. at this location we have feeds from various caucus locations from around the state and cameras at various headquarters and campaigns as well. you are right. i am excited to be a fly on the wall and watch this process play out.
political nerd and this is democracy at its grassroots level. i saw it in cedar rapids with marco rubio. after he was done with his speech he shook hands and took pictures of the people in the room and in order to have a strong performance it could be the difference of three or four people at a caucus site heavily weighted in the votes. they have to understand here in iowa you have to make the personal connection in order to be successful. >> denise: a lot of one-on-one going on. ryan, who has the most to gain and who has the most to lose. look how strong bernie sanders has been doing against hillary. >> reporter: yeah. he is a wise person to bring up first, i think bernie sanders has the most to gain tonight. if he can score a victory and come in first place it will put the democratic race and flip it upside down and change the
states going forward. if he were to lose it might bring it back to normal and put clinton on a path to secure the nomination. we will find out if donald trump is for real. we have seen the poll numbers and heard the talk and first time his name has been on a ballot and people have the opportunity to vote for him and find out tonight if he is the real deal. >> dan: ryan, we appreciate your coverage and nights like tonight is historic. in 2000 the howard dean screen when he lost his mind when he spent too so much time in iowa and ends up losing. >> denise: everyone knows it. >> dan: can you see it happen and entertaining and great to watch. thank you for your time in iowa. >> denise: see you later, thank you. >> dan: there was concerns that a massive snowstorm moving across the midwest could have impacted the iowa caucuses tonight.
wintry weather isn't expected to hit the hawkeye state hard until tomorrow and seeing 12 inches of a weird storm from the south. >> jeff: when it was first starting to get attention originally thought monday night it could move in. it has slowed down. tomorrow when they will get hit. we will be on the warm side of that system which means rain for us, again, another look at that midwest storm. blizzard warnings areas in purple which does include the northwest part of iowa there. but yeah. here we are sitting pretty around 40 degrees partly cloudy sky. akron-canton 4, sandusky 45. across the greater cleveland area, cooler with the lake breeze up against the shore there where lakewood is at 36. okay, the trend tonight will be dropping through the 30s outside of the downtown area.
