Governor Tom Vilsack doesn’t believe there needs to be any major changes in the way Democrats count voters in their presidential caucuses. Democrat leaders couldn’t nail down the exact number of voters who participated in the January 24th event. Vilsack says they just need better training in counting caucus participants.Democrats estimated the head count at 61-thousand — a number considered low compared to past turn outs. But, Vilsack says those past numbers weren’t necessarily accurate, and future numbers should be measured against the 2000 caucuses.The format for the Democrat caucuses has been criticized for keeping people away. Vilsack admits it’s tough for Democrats, especially in small towns, to stand up for their candidate in front of their neighbors. But Vilsack says the Democrat central committee will have to address the issue, and he won’t push for the change unless that happens.
