The Loser loses

Yesterday I wrote that I thought that for people to tell a pollster that they wanted Trump is very different than actually voting for Trump, and Iowa showed that to be so. The Des Moines Register had Trump with a 5 point lead, and it looks like he lost by 4 points instead. That is wonderful news as far as I'm concerned. Of course the terrible news is that he lost to Cruz, who scares me even more than Trump does. 

There is a very long way to go, and I am never sure how important Iowa is because it is caucuses rather than elections, and it certainly is not a representative cross section of America. But I will take a sigh of relief that The Loser lost. Not sure how long his ego will allow him to run if he doesn't feel adored.
