Conservative Twitter is ridiculously happy that Donald Trump lost in Iowa

Donald Trump did much worse in the Iowa caucus than polls predicted, losing by 4 points to Ted Cruz and barely beating Marco Rubio. And conservative pundits, who were never very fond of Trump, are ecstatic.

Here's a few reactions:

The schadenfreude comes after a very long effort to tear down Trump, culminating in a big cover by the conservative magazine National Review, which Lowry is the editor of.

But it might not be time to count out Trump just yet. He's still ahead in the polls in the next few states to vote, including New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. Of course, having lost to Cruz and barely beating Rubio in a state where he was projected to get first, it's possible that his opponents could get a significant boost and ultimately defeat him.
