(Part-2) Trump dominates Iowa caucuses as DeSantis edges Haley for second.

DeSantis would finish second to Trump. In the last 10% of ballots, DeSantis leads Haley by 2,300 votes, or 2 percentage points. Based on outstanding votes in all but one of Iowa's 99 counties, Haley isn't performing well enough to catch DeSantis.

DeSantis and Haley are competing to replace the outgoing president. For the Jan. 23 primary in New Hampshire, Haley aims to battle fiercely with independent votes. DeSantis will visit New Hampshire on Tuesday after visiting South Carolina, a conservative bastion where the Feb. 24 election might be crucial.

In a caucus speech before leaving, Haley made a sly dig at Trump. “If you want to move forward with no more vendettas, if you want to move forward with hope, join us in this caucus,” she added. I want your vote. I pledge to work daily on making you proud.

Trump's triumph is a striking example of a Republican Party hesitant to move on from a poor front-runner. He fell to Biden in 2020 after causing near-constant instability in the White House, ending in a fatal Capitol attack by his followers. He faces 91 felonies in four cases.

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether states may exclude Trump from the ballot for instigating the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol rebellion. He faces Washington and Atlanta criminal charges for trying to overthrow the 2020 election.
