NBC’s Andrea Mitchell offered a somewhat unsurprising (considering the source) analysis of Iowa as she covered the state’s upcoming caucus race for “Nightly News.”

“The rap on Iowa,” she said, “It doesn’t represent the rest of the country… too white, too evangelical, too rural. Still here, politics are personal.”

Watch Mitchell’s take on Iowa politics (via NBC):

After pointing out that Iowa Republican caucus-goers don’t really have a “very good track record for picking presidents,” Mitchell spoke with network political analyst Mike Murphy, who described the Iowa caucus as being part of a sort of “winnowing out” process when it comes to candidates, reports Mediaite.
