Now that the Iowa caucuses have come to a close, the first vote in the run-up to the presidential election has been cast.
The polls have now lost some weight as candidates have gained delegates.
By the numbers 1,237 delegates are needed toe secure the Republican nomination; the Democrats need 2,382.
Which is why the start to the caucus and primary season is moving at a slow pace.
The race seems quicker now, but the gain in delegates is a steady climb.
For the GOP Iowa offered 30, while 44 delegates were offered on the Democratic side.
Clinton's slim victory earned 22, while Sen. Bernie Sanders earned 21.
For the Republicans, Cruz seized eight while Donald Trump and Marco Rubio received seven.
