(CNN) — It’s down to the wire with the Iowa caucuses a day away and presidential candidates are making a final push to get out in front of voters.

Iowa offers only a small contingent of the delegates who will determine the presidential nominees, but a win would greatly increase momentum leading into the New Hampshire primary.

A recent poll by the Des Moines Register and Bloomberg shows the Iowa choice for Democratic nominee — among likely caucus goers— is Hillary Clinton with 45 percent of the vote. Senator Bernie Sanders is not far behind with 42 percent of the vote.

Donald Trump leads the polls as the Iowa choice for Republican nominee.

Surprisingly enough, he wasn’t much of a target Sunday, but Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were going after each other. The two clashed over immigration during Thursday’s debate.
