Former US President Donald Trump has won the Republican Party’s presidential nomination in the Iowa caucus after which he has become the most important candidate to join the race for the US presidential election for the third time in a row.

He won the first caucus in Iowa by a huge margin. This caucus is the first step of primaries where the republican candidate will be chosen.

The primary process works more or less like the election itself, with a quantity of delegates assigned to the winner of each state rather than simply counting who has the most votes.

Differently from the national elections though, in the primaries each state has its own system to assign delegates, and in the case of Iowa the 40 delegates are distributed proportionally to the vote share. This means Trump will start the race with 20 or 21.

Vivek Ramaswamy, who finished 4th but still with enough votes to elect delegates, announced he will stop campaigning, which essentially means the same as pulling out of the race. This will also play in favor of Trump.

Despite facing legal problems and criminal cases, Donald Trump has once again managed to show his political power in the party with the results of the ‘Iowa Caucus’ debate.

In the competition, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis came in second, while Nikki Haley, the former US ambassador to the United Nations, came in third.

Citizens of the US state of Iowa gathered in the freezing cold at more than 100 schools, community centers and other venues to deliver their first verdict at a months-long presidential campaign caucus.

About 120,000 people cast their votes. In the results of 90% of the votes, Trump got 50.9% of the votes, while De Santos got 21.4% and Haley got 19% of the people’s support.

US President Joe Biden declared Trump the ‘front runner’ as the presidential candidate of the Republican Party after his victory in Iowa.

Biden wrote in a post on X: “This election was always going to be you and me vs. extreme MAGA Republicans. It was true yesterday and it’ll be true tomorrow.”
