Whenever a person loses at anything you’d think they’d chalk it up to experience, say they enjoyed the ride, and move on gracefully.
However, we’re talking about Donald Trump here.
If Iowa doesn’t end up going his way tomorrow night, Trump says it was all just a waste of time…
For the first time, GOP front-runner Donald Trump is admitting he may lose Iowa.
“Unless I win, I would consider this a big, fat, beautiful—and, by the way, a very expensive—waste of time,” Trump said this weekend, speaking to supporters during a whirlwind tour of Iowa.
Trump also seemed to acknowledge that a loss in Iowa could unravel his campaign.
“If I don’t win, maybe bad things happen,” he said.
More likely than not, Iowa will come down to Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
A final poll released the other day showed the billionaire real estate mogul with the lead, but obviously we won’t know officially until tomorrow night.
I don’t think a loss in Iowa would be as detrimental as Trump is making it out to be, as Mike Huckabee won in 2008 and Rick Santorum won in 2012. Clearly, neither of those two went on to earn the Republican nomination.
