An #Outsider Newsflash (Late Breaking Developments): On the Virtual Beat in the #IowaCaucus 2016 .....

We have been assessing the returns out of Iowa and all reports coming in are projecting Ted Cruz to be the winner of the Iowa Caucus despite a late apparent surge in the polls by Donald Trump.      The latest is noted below from the Des Moines Register;

The ground game by Ted Cruz seems to have worked.    How this will translate into wins in subsequent wins is going to be interesting as Ted Cruz' national support is questionable.     Marco Rubio also remains standing with 23%.

 Mike Huckabee on the Republican side and  Martin O'Malley on the Democratic side have already suspended campaigns and other may follow.     Trump also will face some interesting headwinds as well.   

Interesting times indeed.....
