Donald Trump’s campaign team is hoping for a knock-out blow in Iowa with the upcoming Super Tuesday primaries. With a strong presence of surrogates on the ground, such as former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the Trump campaign is determined to continue their success in Iowa, and continue their lead in the polls.
Recent polls have revealed that Trump is favored by a wide margin among Republican primary voters in Iowa. As of writing, Trump leads in the Iowa caucus with a whopping 44% of Republican voters backing him. Among the remaining Republican candidates, former Vice President Joe Biden comes in at a distant second with 14% of the vote, suggesting that Trump is likely to do well in the upcoming primary, unless the tide suddenly shifts.
However, recent developments on the ground have caused the Trump campaign to focus on maintaining their lead in Iowa. Governor Ron DeSantis is campaigning in Iowa for the first time since he announced his endorsement of Trump. Simultaneously, former Governor Nikki Haley is holding multiple rallies across the state in an effort to rally support for the president.
Both candidates are eager to make an impact with their powerful presence in Iowa. Analysts believe that the Trump campaign hopes to capitalize on the enthusiasm of Governor DeSantis and former Governor Haley as they attempt to lock up votes at the voting booth.
The primary election in Iowa is scheduled for March 3, and with the late surge of support for the Trump campaign, a decisive victory in the Hawkeye state appears increasingly likely. Should Trump perform well in Iowa, it would be a huge boost to the campaign as it moves on to other key states, such as New Hampshire and South Carolina.
A Trump victory in Iowa would demonstrate to the Republican establishment that the President is here to stay, despite a turbulent year. It would also give the Trump campaign an overwhelming momentum, as the president moves closer to locking up the Republican nomination. This could very well spell the beginning of an historic election season this year.
