The 12 best memes roasting candidates who are announcing premature victories with only 62% of results in from the disastrous Iowa caucuses
Some 2020 presidential candidates are celebrating victories, despite the fact that only 62% of the vote...Some 2020 presidential candidates are celebrating victories, despite the fact that only 62% of the vote has been reported from the Iowa caucuses. During the caucuses Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party credited the delay in reporting the results to "inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results." The internet was quick to call out the candidates for speaking before the full results came in, prompting a slew of memes roasting them. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Nearly 24 hours after the fiasco that was the Iowa caucuses, the results finally came in — only 62% of the results, that is. The Iowa caucus, which took place Monday night, fell to disarray when results were delayed due to "inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results," the Los Angeles Times reported. The 62% of results reported on Tuesday evening showed former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont ahead of others like former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. However, with less than three-quarters of the vote in, some 2020 candidates are celebrating premature victories. The internet was quick to both call out the 2020 candidates on the early call and also mock Iowa for releasing only partial results from the caucuses. One Twitter user pointed out that 62% is not a passing grade. Got a 62% on my exam.
