Sucking the Air Out of the Caucus

After months of nonstop campaign coverage, Americans will finally turn to Iowa to see some results. No matter how things turn out, you know who will be in the headlines. And whether or not he wins Iowa (or the GOP nomination), one thing is for sure: Donald Trump has changed the game when it comes to running for president. And although so much of his campaign seems like it’s been off the cuff, the truth is that things are going exactly according to plan. From Politico: How Trump Did It: “I’m going to get in and all the polls are going to go crazy. I’m going to suck all the oxygen out of the room. I know how to work the media in a way that they will never take the lights off of me.” The polls, the lights, the sucking. It all happened. And politics aside, it’s a remarkable story.
