Many Iowans say they will be glad when presidential candidates move on to New Hampshire Tuesday morning. Why?

“Probably the same reason as everyone else is: the advertising, the constant bombardment of ads and people knocking at my door,” Benjamin Chalkley, 51, of North Liberty said. Chalkley, a Democrat, said he planned to caucus for Hillary Clinton.

“Well, it’s just that Iowa has a continuous, it seems like it’s a continuous cycle,” said Steven Reed, 50, a Republican from Carlisle who was leaning toward caucusing for Ted Cruz.

Several Iowa voters had varying views about life after Feb. 1 in Iowa in interviews conducted for an IowaWatch/College Media Voices of the Caucus project. Their comments are in the IowaWatch Connection program that aired on radio stations the weekend leading up to the caucuses.
