The Des Moines Register, CNN and Selzer & Co. have decided not to release the final installment of the CNN / Des Moines Register / Mediacom survey.

"CNN, the Des Moines Register and Selzer & Company will not be releasing the final installment of the CNN/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll", CNN said in a February 1 statement posted on Twitter.

As reported by the New York Times late Saturday, Buttigieg's name was not included on the list of candidates for at least one person surveyed, according to his campaign.

Only a surveyor seems to be aware of this, but we can not confirm this with certainty.

Nothing is more important to the registry and its survey partners than the integrity of the Iowa survey.

Twitter users rallied behind the hashtag after the outlets and pollster Selzer & Co. abandoned the release of the Iowa poll on Saturday night.

The decision to halt the release of the poll was based on a technical irregularity, involving the font size on a computer screen for one of the polltakers, a person at CNN told The Associated Press.

Lis Smith, a senior adviser to the Buttigieg campaign, tweeted, "Our campaign received a report from a recipient of the Iowa Poll call, raising concerns that not every candidate was named by the interviewer when asked who they support".

CNN political director David Chalian said the network had been contacted about a potential error in the poll.

In typical years, Iowa would be the political epicenter until the caucuses and anything happening inside the beltway would be more of an afterthought.

CNN planned a special, Iowa Caucuses: The Final Poll, around the release of the poll, with Chris Cuomo as anchor from Drake University.

"We were unable to determine what happened to the respondent during the interview and can not determine whether it was a single case", said Dornic in a text.

She added, "It is imperative whenever an Iowa Poll is released that there is confidence that the data accurately reflects Iowans' opinions". It's unclear whether the issue occurred a couple of times or impacted other candidates. If they can't, then supporters of that candidate can either decide not to vote or switch to another candidate.

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a self-described democratic socialist who's running on promises of big government programs such as government-run universal health care and a government-led fundamental restructuring of the USA economy to eliminate a large portion of the country's carbon dioxide emissions. Bernie Sanders gaining momentum as other leading candidates trail close behind.
