‘Mayor Pete Buttigieg is being accused of cheating for bizarrely claiming he won the Iowa primary despite the results not being counted and internal results indicating Bernie Sanders won.
The delay in delivering results was based on a “reporting issue,” but this didn’t stop Buttigieg from claiming victory.
“By all indications, we are going on to New Hampshire victorious,” he told supporters. “Tonight, an improbable hope became an undeniable reality.”
However, the Buttigieg campaign’s own internal polling numbers match those of Senator Bernie Sanders and show that Sanders won.’
