6:15 am
vote, doug luzader. >> good morning, doug you are at the capitol there in iowa. they are expecting some weather today too that might a affect things. >> reporter: well look, we will get to that in a second. that is potentially a big factor tonight. at this point this place has been inundated with tv, the arguments have been all made, this is a turnout operation in iowa and we could see a record number of caucus goers tonight. the pace is not letting up, throughout the weekend, every candidate made a final pitch and a final plea for voters. >> please pick a winner this time, okay. i'm going to win. i'm going to win. >> big g.o.p. turnout tonight will probably benefit donald trump who leads reese epps polls. if fewer turn up expect ted cruz support tours give him the edge. >> we know there is a blizzard they will shovel their way to the caucus. >> reporter: rest of the peeled marco rubio this may be a race for third place, but that is enough to stay in the

6:17 am
is there a big storm on the way tonight. one of the oldest rules of politics bad weather can suppress turnout. we have seen just about every other rule violated through the course of these campaigns that one could go to the way site as well. >> glad you brought up martin o'malley factor here former governor of maryland f they then don't get 15 percent which is now not because he is polling 3 percent do they have to get in their cars and drive to whatever these precincts is like a church or some sort of a school. >> reporter: presumably they are already there at the precinct. you all go to the same precinct and you divide in groups. thinks how the democrats work if you don't reach that 15 percent threshold those supporters formatter inn o'malley will have to decide if they want to go home or join one of the other candidates. that is where lobbying gets down to the grass roots level as these people, they are neighbors try to convince one another to support my candidate. that is where things get really tough but that it is so
