Donald Trump wins Republican Iowa caucus by 97.1% to 2.9% - with 100% backing from the president in other counties

Donald Trump was given his first election victory of 2020 on Monday as the Iowa Republican Party said he had won its caucus by a landslide.

Trump 2020: A landslide in Iowa is hardly a surprise, but the president's campaign used it as a dry run for the real re-election campaign later this year
Trump got 97.1 per cent of the vote, with his two opponents, Bill Weld and Joe Walsh getting just 1.3 and 1.1% with 0.5% split between 'other' candidates and with a handful precincts yet to report.

Guess who I voted for: In Garnavillo, Clayton County, it was clear who was backing Trump -and across the entire county, just six people didn't while 214 voted for him
The result was hardly a surprise, but the Trump team had sent his two adult sons and other senior figures to the state in a dry run for the presidential elections.

Top of the ballot: How Republicans were asked to caucus in Clayton County
Iowa was one of the states which had not suspended their mechanism for choosing a Republican candidate, so that it could keep its first in the nation status.

That gave the Trump campaign a chance to practice its 'ground game,' although in reality, there was no real opposition.
