The candidate didn't tweet about his second place finish on Monday night. But Kelly told her viewers about a tweet of his from June 2014 — an archived comment that went viral in the wake of his loss to Cruz.

His old tweet quoted the late pro golfer Walter Hagen, who once said, "No one remembers who came in second."

Trump still wins the nomination. Iowa is an outlier.

As fate would have it, Romney was given the win in the 2012 Iowa caucus in error. 16 days later Santorum was awarded the win. By then, the damage had been done. Mitt went on to win the nomination.

Santorum finished 34 votes ahead of Romney in new Iowa tally; votes from 8 precincts missing

To me, last night indicated Trump won't win the nomination. His supporters talk big but don't show up to vote in the huge numbers the rallies would indicate. And if he can't win in an almost all white state, where will he win? Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but I was somewhat relieved.

As I said, you cannot judge the primaries with Iowa. The caucus is very much driven by the evangelistic vote. Trump is not fooling anyone. He is not religious in the least. I still think he is the person to beat for the GOP, but I agree, New Hampshire, will be the best indicator of how he will perform going forward.

No, I think Iowa was Cruz's best. NH is out with the slim possibility that SC could be good for him.

I think last night proved that none of us should be predicting much based on the polls.
