Lowa Caucus Results 2024: Vital updates from the victory of Trump

CBS News predicts that former President Donald Trump will win the Iowa caucuses, claiming the first state in the 2024 Republican presidential primary process as he looks to quickly remove his opponents and strengthen his dominance over the party.  

With over 90% of the returns in, Trump has more than 50% of the vote, putting him on track for the most significant margin of victory in a contested election in Iowa history. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis defeated former US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley for second place. 

Lowa Caucus Results 2024:

The Iowa caucuses on Monday night were only for 40 delegates out of over 2,400 nationwide. Still, they are the first indication of how the Republican field will shape up in the 2024 primary season.

According to conversations with caucusgoers, Trump won the Iowa Republican caucuses with solid support from White evangelicals and very conservative voters, two key voting blocs in these caucuses, as well as groups he lost in 2016 when voters were less convinced of his conservative credentials. Trump received widespread support, winning men, women, older voters, and younger people and improving his 2016 record in all these categories. Most Iowa caucusgoers downplayed Trump’s legal issues, saying he would still be qualified for the presidency even if convicted of a crime. 

Trump Victory Speech:

In a victory speech that appeared to consider the rest of the primaries and his selection as the Republican candidate as a fait conclusion, Trump called for unity and even hinted at admiration for his competitors. Trump addressed a crowd of his fans in Des Moines that it is “time now, for everybody, our country, to come together,” following NBC News’ prediction that he would handily win the Iowa Republican presidential caucuses. “I want to congratulate Ron and Nikki on having a good time together,” he added of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Trump stated that the second-place results had still to be determined.
