Or was there something else going on here?'\n\n'The wife of one of his advisers is involved in the company that made the app,' Mr Lauria said.\n\nMr Buttigieg won the Iowa caucuses primary by 0.1 per cent of the vote, ahead of Bernie Sanders.\n\n'Whatever it was, it looks very bad for the Democrats.
