Live results, updates from the first in the nation caucuses

The political questions answered tonight 

With caucus night upon us, there are some questions that caucusgoers across the state — and voters throughout the country — will see answered when the night is over.

The big question will obviously be momentum coming out of Monday night and heading into next week’s New Hampshire primary. Campaigns, pundits and even voters look at Iowa’s results to see who has a chance of continuing to the New Hampshire primary or who should call it quits.

Although the Iowa results won’t predict what happens in New Hampshire, it will be looked on as a guide.

Another question that will be answered is whether one of the big four candidates — former Vice President Joe Biden, former mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren — will win. All four candidates at some point have led the Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa Poll over the past several months. In addition, those four candidates have been within the top five nationally over the past couple of months.
