The Iowa caucuses are Monday night, and the results will shift all the attention to New Hampshire's primary next week. The candidates used the day to make their final pitches before the caucusing begins.

"I'm not going to talk about polls today, because frankly the polls today, today we have our ultimate poll, so I don't have to talk about polls, " said Republican front runner Donald Trump at a rally in Waterloo Iowa Monday morning. "But, the one that just came out in New Hampshire has us way way up, because of the debate, because of what I did. People respected that we don't take this stuff from people that you know shouldn't be treating us that way, and they respected it."

On the Democratic side, the latest Des Moines Register poll gives Hillary Clinton a 3 point lead over Bernie Sanders.

"Our issues are out there, people are really enthusiastic. And, if people come out to vote, I think you're going to look at one of the biggest political upsets in the modern history of our country," Sanders said Sunday on CNN.
