Democratic candidates failed to make the front pages in Iowa with just days to go before the Iowa Caucus. Instead, the local papers in the early voting state focused on President Trump's Thursday rally and Vice President Mike Pence campaigning in the state.

Seemingly, to add insult to injury, this is the second day in a row where the Democratic candidates and their campaigns did not lead the news.

The only reason technology entrepreneur Andrew Yang appeared at the bottom was because it was bought for ad space by his campaign.

"Trump talks up trade, promises to win Iowa" the Des Moines Register's headline read.

"Trump visits Midwest" and "'I love our president'" were on the front page of the Quad City Times.

"Pence rally evangelicals for Trump in Sioux City" the Sioux City Journal stated.

"Trump mocks 'totally sick' rivals" The Gazette ran.

According to RealClearPolitics, Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT) is currently leading the Democratic field, with an average 23.8%. Former Vice President Joe Biden is in second place at an average 20.2% and former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg in third at an average 15.8%.
