Donald Trump Faces His Iowa Test

CLINTON, Iowa (AP) – For Donald Trump, Iowa is more than just a race for delegates. It’s a test of whether the celebrity businessman and political newcomer will be able to transform his record crowds into caucus-goers willing to brave the cold on Monday night to cast their votes.

Trump, who appears to have emerged from a dead-heat with rival Ted Cruz to re-capture his position atop state polls, has done little to minimize expectations, predicting again and again that he’ll do better than the polls suggest.

But Trump nonetheless implored his supporters to caucus Monday with equal doses of guilt, threats and humor.

“I’d be very angry, but only for a day,” he told an Iowa crowd.
