Trump WINS Iowa caucus in landslide first vote of 2024 presidential race

With 97% of the expected vote in, Trump had 51.1% support, followed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (21.2%), former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (19.1%) and biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy (7.7%), who ended his campaign and gave Trump his support as the result became clear.

The 77-year-old Trump recorded the biggest margin of victory in the modern history of the Iowa GOP caucus, dating back to 1976, and become the first Republican candidate to get more than 50% support in a contested caucus.

The former president won or led in 98 of the Hawkeye State’s 99 counties as of midnight Tuesday, with only Johnson County — the home of the University of Iowa at Iowa City — narrowly denying him a clean sweep by barely going for Haley.

“I want to congratulate Ron and Nikki for having a good time together. We’re all having a good time together,” a notably low-key Trump said in his victory speech in Des Moines. “I think they both actually did very well. I really do. I think they both did very well.”

“I really think this is time now for everybody in our country to come together. We want to come together — whether it’s Republican or Democrat or liberal or conservative,” said Trump, one of the most polarizing politicians in US history. “It would be so nice if we could come together and straighten out the world and straighten out the problems and straighten out all of the death and destruction that we’re witnessing.”
