"A day out from the caucuses, Donald Trump was among the candidates working western Iowa hard on Sunday.

For Trump, Iowa is more than just a race for delegates. It's a test of whether the celebrity businessman and political newcomer will be able to transform his record crowds into caucus-goers willing to brave the cold and the threat of snow on Monday night to cast their votes.

Trump, who appears to have emerged from a dead-heat with rival Ted Cruz to re-capture his position atop state polls, has done little to minimize expectations, predicting again and again that he'll do better than the polls suggest.

Trump played to a packed house at Gerald Kirn Middle School in Council Bluffs over the noon hour, joined by wife Melania and daughter Ivanka. "I backed McCain, it didn't work. I backed Romney, it didn't work. This one I said, let's do it ourselves."

During a question and answer session with Jerry Falwell Jr., Trump spoke on several topics, including the need for safe-zones in the Middle East, which he said will prevent so many migrants from flowing to Europe, and talked about immigration in the U.S....

"A lot of the media has been doing some sensational claiming about him and makes him look a little more brash than he actually is." said supporter Shane Greckel. 

"What I found today was a very calm, cool, collected and educated individual on the issues facing our country."

"I was here last month at his event," said supporter Sandi Palensky. "I just really like his message. I'd be proud to vote for him. I don't agree with everything that he says or everything that he's going to do, but I think he would be a strong leader."...

Trump said the night he skipped last week’s debate, they were able to raise $6 million for veterans. He asked supporters to get out and caucus for him Monday night, despite the weather."
