Donald Trump must be pretty pissed!
On Monday, residents cast their votes for the 2016 Iowa Caucus, marking the first major event in this year’s presidential nomination process!
After HOURS of counting across various sites in The Hawkeye State, the winners have finally been revealed!
It was a tight race on the Republican side between the former host of The Apprentice and Ted Cruz, but in the end, Ted trumped Donald, walking away victorious with 27.7% of the votes.
And for the Democratic party, it was neck-and-neck between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, down to the last second, but ultimately Miz Clinton came out on top with 49.9%, beating her opponent by only a fraction of a percent!
This is a huge deal, because in the past the Iowa caucus has predicted the Democratic presidential nominee 43% of the time, and the Republican choice 50% of the time!
But, where did the other candidates fall in the count? Ch-ch-check out the full results (below)!
