Catching the mood in Iowa: 'For some reason you have to come here to be President!'
In the midst of political rallies and stump speeches, an insight into the electorate could come from an unlikely source: a popular Des Moines store.
On Monday night residents of the Hawkeye state caucus were poised to select candidates they feel will best represent them in a kick-off to the presidential primaries. In the midst of political rallies and stump speeches, getting an insight into the electorate could come from an unlikely source: a popular Des Moines store that sells politically-themed merchandise.
The t-shirts, buttons and other products have brought celebrities and news media to a store called Raygun during the political season.
"The surrealism of it never gets old," said owner Mike Draper from the store Tuesday morning.
Draper joined the show to talk about how his merchandise may help gain better understanding into how people are feeling than the polls.
