It’s official! With 99% of the vote in, Ted Cruz is beating Donald Trump 28% to 24%. Marco Rubio is in 3rd, with 23% of the vote.
Ted Cruz is projected to win the Iowa caucuses based on an analysis of the vote so far.
Three-quarters of both Cruz’s and Rubio’s supporters were looking mainly for electability or a candidate who shares their values; by contrast, three-quarters of Trump supporters were mainly looking for someone who can bring needed change or who tells like it is.
The state Republican Party has predicted a record turnout tonight.
A Republican source reports that there were a large number of “overflowing caucus sites,” particularly in the central part of Iowa, closer to main population areas.
