Today’s episode of the American Politics Saga focuses on Iowa—the Iowa Caucuses, to be more specific. The #IowaCaucuses are underway, which means we’re officially in full gear for the 2020 presidential election.

While the rest of us wait, there’s always social media. Social media isn’t necessarily a good indicator of who will win, but reading tweets might help take the edge off. You already know that people have a lot to say about politics from the comfort of their smartphones, so here’s a roundup of thoughts about the Iowa Caucuses—with memes, sarcasm, and fanning out included.

American Politics is divided, but there are always those people who just want to unite for what they feel is the greater good of the people
