Trump Asks for Votes, Even if the Voters Die

( – President Donald trump is banking extra hard on the strong support Republican voters are showing him in pre-election polls, and is now telling supporters that it would be “worth it” even if they die braving Iowa’s subzero temperatures as long as they cast their vote for him.

“Even if you vote and then pass away, it’s worth it,” the former chief executive quipped. “You can’t sit home,” Trump further quipped. “(Even) if you’re sick as a dog,” the former president added, “You say, ‘Darling, I gotta make it.’”

The remarks come as weather experts and meteorologists classify Iowa’s current weather conditions as “life threatening,” as windchill is expected to hit -40 degrees in certain parts of the Hawkeye State. A blizzard also hit Iowa on January 12 and 13.

In fact, Trump himself cancelled a number of in-person events in Iowa due to adverse weather conditions.

Still, the former president strongly encouraged supporters to make a showing at election centers, saying that the polls would be at indoor locations and would be completely safe.

Trump added that Republicans needed to take America back, telling supporters, “you gotta get up, you gotta vote,” because he said, wresting control of the country back from Democrats is “the biggest thing there is.”

Edison Research projected Trump to win the Iowa caucus, beating his closest contenders, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. and former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley. He did so handedly. Iowa was the first state to hold caucuses as the 2024 election season officially kicks off. One of the final polls before the caucus, conducted by the Des Moines Register, gave the former commander-in-chief a 48% support rating among voters in the state, followed by Haley with 20% and DeSantis at 16%.

With strong showings in pre-election polls among Republican voters, many expect Trump to win the Republican presidential nomination, which would essentially mean a second match-up between himself and President Joe Biden, as both of them vie for a second term at the White House.
