Jan 17, 2024 | Political News

Prominent pollster and political analyst Scott Rasmussen said Tuesday the 2024 GOP presidential nominating process is over – following former President Donald Trump's decisive win the night before in the Iowa caucuses.  

“The race is over,” Rasmussen said on the “John Solomon Reports” podcast, after Trump won 51% percent of the caucus ballots and 98 of 99 precincts.”Not only was it that the former president topped 50%, there was no clear second place.” 

To be sure, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis came in second with 21.2% and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley finished third with 19.1%.
