ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday (January 30) called on Iowans to be sure to show up on Monday to caucus for him.
“If we can win, here, if we win in Iowa… we can run the table for the first time ever,” Trump said. “But you know what? I have to say this, don’t be insulted, but you haven’t had a winner in 16 years.”
Trump said he needed a bigger edge over Senator Ted Cruz, his closest rival in the GOP race. “I don’t like these five points, so you gotta get out,” Trump said.
The NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls shows Trump with the edge in Iowa, leading the Republicans field at 32 percent, with Cruz coming in at 25 percent.
Overall, the latest Reuters/Ipso polls shows Trump at 40 percent with Cruz at 15.4 percent.
