As of Tuesday morning, we STILL don’t know who won the Democrat caucus in Iowa and thanks to a problem with the app that was used, we won’t know until sometime late Tuesday, the Washington Post says. According to Breitbart, the problem is a “coding issue” found in the app used to record and report votes. But White House candidate Andrew Yang thinks he knows who the real culprit is — Donald Trump, of course.
“It might be helpful to have a President and government that understand technology so this sort of thing doesn’t happen,” he said on Twitter.

This is almost like blaming Russia for Hillary losing in 2016.
Response to Yang’s fact-free conspiracy theory was pretty much what you’d expect:
Your own party developed the app, and then wouldn't even tell people who the developer was, bonehead.

It might be helpful to have a President who understands the President doesnt have anything to do with that.

That’s what we’d like to know. We’re not going to hold our breath waiting for an answer, however.
DNC controls all of this ya big dope.

The President doesn’t get to run the caucus, dumbass. Might be helpful to have a president who understands how elections work or what states or political parties are.

Then there’s this:
The Caucus disaster was strictly a Dem problem – things went just fine for Republicans last night

Shadow, a Democrat-affiliated technology company, developed the app that officials had hoped would deliver swifter caucus results. The outfit is run by Gerard Niemira, who served as Director of Product for Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign. Additionally, former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook was part of the project Defending Digital Democracy (DDD) — an initiative aimed at protecting elections from cyberattack — that tested the app ahead of the botched caucus.
In its statement, the Iowa Democratic Party said last night’s results will be reported “as soon as possible today” but would not give a firm deadline.
“Precinct level results are still being reported to the IDP. While our plan is to release results as soon as possible today, our ultimate goal is to ensure that the integrity and accuracy of the process continues to be upheld,” said officials.
The reporting app was distributed to precinct chairs shortly before Monday’s caucuses.
Some Iowa precinct chairs noticed problems with the app during tests earlier Monday but assumed they were only sporadic issues, the Des Moines Register reported. However, the issue turned into a paralyzing malfunction after the caucuses concluded, and organizers found they were unable to log into the app.
