Roger Kimball gives his view of the Iowa Caucuses, and we tend to agree. Kimball writes in The Spectator:
At the end of the day, Trump got his 50 percent, 51 percent, in fact, while Ron DeSantis, who had gone all in on Iowa spending loads of time as well as money there, edged out Nikki Haley 21.2 percent to 19.1 percent. My conclusion is the same: Trump is on track to grab the nomination, DeSantis is toast, Haley is slow roasting. The other big news of the night is that Vivek Ramaswamy, the articulate Energizer bunny of the race, has decided to drop out. He was easily the most amusing, most direct and most thoughtful candidate in the race, but he managed to attract only 7.7 percent of the votes. His hour has not yet come. Endorsing Trump in his remarks, Vivek asked his followers to “follow me and take our America First movement to the next level.” Many of them will. We have not heard the last of him.
