|Republicans picks Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the Iowa Caucus.|
Rafael Edward Cruz is the front runner. Shake ups in the elections as well.
As reported the results are in and one bombastic voice in the insurgency won the Iowa Caucus.
Congratulations to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for pulling off a victory in Iowa. The Iowa Caucus results are in and of course, many hardline conservatives are happy that Cruz pulled an upset against Donald Trump in the most bitterly fought race for the nomination.
The Canadian American politico beat back an onslaught of attacks from Trump, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Jeb Bush.
Overall, Rubio did well. He pulled a few points behind Trump. This third place victory assures that Rubio is in it for the long run. Also reported Democratic candidate Martin O'Malley and Republican candidate Mike Huckabee are out of the race. The two were polling so fucking low, it was totally a waste of time for them running given the atmosphere.
Rand Paul, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, John Kasich, Chris Christie, Rick Santorum and Jim Gilmore might want to exit the stage as soon as possible.
Trump's boycott of that right wing network during the final lap may have been a mistake on his part.
But never one to give up, Trump is pressing on to New Hampshire hoping to knock Cruz off his perch.
Cruz on the other hand is now proven to the Republicans he's no loser. His extreme rhetoric proven to be a success. He's at the forefront of repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). He said that he would "carpet bomb" the hell out of Islamic State. He said that the "Washington Cartel" will hate him even more now that he's won.
And now, he's got the title of being the front runner in this race.
O'Malley who had a struggling campaign was fighting for more debates and more airtime. Unfortunately the race focused on ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
So far, we have no clear winner in the Democratic race but it's a razor thin and a tough call.
Sanders is appealing to young voters. Clinton is appealing to older voters and working class Democrats.
This will be decided as soon as possible. We'll keep you posted on the results.
