Donald Trump was all smiles in Iowa on Saturday after word got out that a major case in Colorado had finally been settled.
Once again, leftists failed to have Trump removed from the ballot.
They continue to file suits trying to say that Trump can be removed via the 14th Amendment, Section 3, and they keep on failing.
The entire premise of these suits is that Trump is either guilty of insurrection or has lent comfort and aid to an insurrectionist.
Trump has not been formally charged or convicted of either, so the lawsuits are frivolous and a complete was of time and taxpayer money.
The case in Colorado seemed to have the best chance for success as it had gotten further than other cases, but the judge eventually shot this case down as well.
Trump told the crowd at the Fort Dodge, IA, rally, “Our opponents are showing every day that they hate democracy.”
Trump took his shots at DeSantis, stating, “I don’t think it’s made any difference,” regarding the recent endorsement of Iowa Governor Kim Gardner.
DeSantis, who has been pretty quiet to this point, has finally started to fire back at the Trump attacks.
The Florida Governor, who has made it his goal to visit every county in Iowa, stated, “I think it’s been a mistake how he’s not been willing to engage with Iowans outside of swooping in and doing, you know, a speech and then just leaving.
“I think you got to get on the ground, you got to shake the hands, you got to answer their questions.”
So far, Trump has made eight appearances throughout Iowa, whereas DeSantis has had more than 90.
Even so, Trump leads DeSantis in Iowa 44.9 to 18.0% as of the latest polling.
The only way DeSantis can even come close to presenting a challenge to Trump at this point is for the field to consolidate, being head-to-head against Trump before voting starts.
Considering both Haley and Ramaswamy now appear to be Trump operatives, I would say the chances of that happening before South Carolina are virtually zero.
