(Tea Party PAC) – While most of the attention concerning the Iowa caucus is on the major debacle involving the result tallies for the Democratic presidential candidates, you probably aren’t hearing much about what happened in the GOP caucuses at all.
That’s likely because it’s assumed that President Trump is going to be the one representing the Republican Party in the election because he is the incumbent president, which is typically how these things work. Well, the Never Trump crowd attempted to throw a few challenges in the president’s direction to primary him.
Things did not go as they hoped they would.
Here’s more from Infowars:
Despite media coverage of the Republican challengers to President Donald Trump, the incumbent president handily won the Iowa caucuses only moments after voting began.
President Trump won a quick, easy victory on Monday night with most pundits calling the president’s victory only moments after the caucuses began.
The New York Times reports that President Trump netted over 26,000 votes, or 96.8 per cent of all of those cast.
Much has been said by media pundits about the campaigns of anti-Trump radio host Joe Walsh and failed Libertarian Party vice presidential candidate Bill Weld, who were also on the ballot.
At latest count, with most precincts fully reporting their results, Walsh received 360 votes, or 1.3 per cent of those cast.
This should be entertaining. Bernie supporters are still angry at Hillary taking the 2016 nomination away with superdelegates. Even though the DNC made a great fanfare about reform, they’re considering going back to the old rules to stop Bernie.
For his part, Weld received 357 votes, accounting for another 1.3 per cent of the total.
In total, the Republican challengers currently tally at 717 votes, and do not seem likely to breach 1,000.
Ezra Levant of Rebel News took to Twitter to note the stark difference between how some in the media portrayed the percentages would lean and what actually happened.
“Turns out Never-Trumpers represent 3.2% of the Republican Party,” wrote Levant. “But they make up 75% of ‘Republican’ pundits on TV.”

Walsh himself appeared at a caucus site in Iowa to make his case for voting against President Donald Trump.
In his speech, Walsh began to say “If you want four more years of the Donald Trump show,” and was then rendered inaudible by loud cheers.
“This is embarrassing,” wrote Republican activist Scott Presler on Twitter.
This is embarrassing.
Joe Walsh spoke at an Iowa Republican caucus, trying to disparage President @realDonaldTrump,
& the crowd goes wild when he says “If you want 4 more years of the Donald Trump show…”

In many other states, local GOP members have cancelled their primary or caucus as Trump is not set to have any real opposition for the party’s support. Why waste the time, money, and energy on something that isn’t really going to change anything? Sounds like cancelling is a smart idea.
President Trump is without a doubt the best candidate for the job. He’s done excellent work in his first term both economically and socially. Why not continue to give him the opportunity to keep the train on the right track and improve the quality of life for more citizens?
Plus, if we don’t stop the left from regaining power, many of the freedoms we love and enjoy will disappear forever. We cannot allow that to happen.
