Trump Supporters Unfazed By Frigid Temperatures During Iowa Caucuses

Former President Donald Trump recently cruised to victory in the Iowa caucuses, trouncing his opposition by double digits. The former president’s supporters didn’t waver in voting for Trump despite the freezing temperatures in The Hawkeye State.

Frigid Temperatures on Jan. 15, 2024, in Iowa didn’t stop Trump supporters from cramming into Emerson Elementary School in a town about 15 miles south of Des Moines, Iowa.

The mainstream media questioned whether the freezing temperatures in Iowa would reduce the former president’s chances of winning the Iowa caucuses, which it didn’t.

A caucusgoer at Emerson Elementary School, Chris Nelson, said Iowans were unfazed by the frosty weather.

“I don’t think people understand Iowans,” Nelson, who caucused for Trump, told the New York Post. “This is just another day for us.”

A 75-year-old disabled Vietnam veteran, James Spiker, said his conditions would not prevent him from supporting the former president in the Iowa caucuses.

“Nothing would stop me from coming here to vote for Trump,” the Vietnam veteran said. “He may not be a perfect man, but he knew what he was doing.”

Multiple caucusgoers told the New York Post that stopping the crisis at the southern border caused by President Joe Biden was their top concern, followed by the disastrous state of the economy.

Before each caucusgoer could choose their preferred GOP presidential contender, they could pitch that person to others.

Five individuals pitched the former president at Emerson Elementary School, led by Joani Estes, a 60-year-old woman who wore the traditional white caucus baseball hat, indicating she is a Trump campaign “caucus captain.”

Estes read from a script by the former president’s campaign.

“I’m here on behalf of the greatest president of our lifetime and the only candidate who can beat Joe Biden,” the script read.

At Emerson Elementary School, three individuals pitched Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), including 35-year-old Josh Simmerman, who argued in favor of the Florida governor for “standing up to Disney … when they were trying to infiltrate our kids’ minds.”

“All of us here are sick and tired of seeing Biden being led off the stage and tripping up staircases,” Simmerman said. “Everyone knows when you hit your 80s things go downhill, you’re not functional anymore.”
