Monday's Iowa caucuses are important for many reasons, but mostly because they are the first real votes being cast in the 2016 presidential race.

Iowa is also unique because of the way the caucuses work. Enthusiastic voters try to persuade their undecided neighbors to choose one candidate over another.

Here & Now's Robin Young talks with Christen Bain, a Democrat in Des Moines who has not yet decided who to vote for, and with Alex Doser, president of Iowa State University College Democrats, who is caucusing for Bernie Sanders.

Guests

  • Christen Bain, an undecided Democratic Party caucus-goer who works in marketing at a law firm in Des Moines.
  • Alex Doser, president of Iowa State University College Democrats.
