Iowa Caucuses were held last night and, according to American tradition, this is pretty much the event that determines the next presidential ticket, AKA the country's future, AKA the world and workplace we will have to deal with for our adult lives. So how did our candidates do?
Donald Trump (R)
Donald Trump received 24.3% of the vote, but he didn't come in first place. In his speech, Trump said, "I love the people of Iowa. We finished second and I am honored."
Hillary Clinton (D)
Hillary Clinton, the forerunner in the democratic elections, received 49.9% of votes, putting her in first place. Her win, however, was not by a large margin.
Ted Cruz (R)
Ted Cruz swept through Iowa caucuses and received a whopping 27.7% of votes, putting him in first place among the Republican candidates.
Bernie Sanders (D)
Bernie fans, no need to be alarmed. Though the senator from Vermont did not win the caucus, he lost by a mere 0.3% putting him at 49.6% of total votes.
Marco Rubio (R)
Marco Rubio slid into third place with 23.1% of votes and spoke of optimism, stating that he "had no chance" and "need[ed] to wait my time."
Martin O'Malley (D)
Sorry, O'Malley fans. With Clinton and Sanders pulling through with high numbers, O'Malley had the chance to only score 0.6% of the votes. Will he be a Vice Presidential nominee, though?
Ben Carson (R)
The famous brain surgeon only got 9.3% of the votes, landing him in fourth place. This isn't surprising, though, with his campaign crew kind of falling apart.
