This breaking news comes as no surprise, but Donald Trump has just won the Iowa caucus in a major blowout!

Multiple media outlets, including The New York Times, CNN, and CBS have already declared Trump the winner for tonight’s Iowa caucus.

At just over half an hour in to the caucus, Trump secured a huge lead over the other GOP candidates.

The biggest question now is: who will take second place?

Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley are currently battling it out.

ABC News reported:

ABC News projects that Trump will win the Iowa Republican caucuses. This surprises absolutely no one, given that Trump had a more than 30-point lead in 538’s Iowa polling average heading into tonight’s event. However, the drama tonight wasn’t about Trump’s outcome, but second place: Can Haley jump ahead of DeSantis and set herself up for a nice result ahead of New Hampshire’s primary, where she’s stronger? Or will DeSantis pull off a comeback story of sorts by grabbing the silver medal? Stay tuned!

NBC News also called the Iowa caucus for Trump:

Former President Donald Trump is projected to win the Iowa caucus, NBC News finds.

The bigger question now is who will take second place, and by how much. Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis both poll in the high teens, effectively splitting the non-Trump vote.

Tonight’s caucus also serves as the first official barometer of where the Republican party stands in 2024. For example, if Trump wins support from more than 50% of caucusgoers, it narrows the suggest that even if the the non-Trump vote coalesces around one challenger, that candidate still faces an uphill climb.

On the other hand, if Trump falls short of 50%, it raises the odds that a challenger who can unify the rest of the party, be it Haley or DeSantis, might actually defeat him in a nomination fight.
