MU students, faculty visit Iowa caucus for research
A group of University of Missouri students and faculty visited the Iowa caucus on Monday to poll voters on their preferences.
The group from MU's Political Communications Institute plans to survey people attending rallies for the Democratic candidates for president. Those survey results will then be used to research how voters in several demographic groups feel about the candidates in the race.
The five students on the trip range from sophomores to seniors who tell ABC 17 News that the trip could give them valuable insight into their fields of interest, such as public policy and communications.
