For more information on the candidates, the primary process, and the primary schedule see: Candidates, How the Presidential Primary Works, Schedule. You may have noticed that there are two questions on the site regarding the Iowa Republican caucuses. The reason is that with the launch of the Monkey Cage challenge, we wanted a broad question that rates the chances of all of the candidates. The earlier question, launched back in September, was focused on the Trump phenomenon and his staying power. If you forecast on one, we would appreciate you forecasting on both. This question will be the official question for the Monkey Cage challenge, but they’ll be looking at data from both to see if there are any differences in forecasted probabilities based on the framing of the question.
