Trump campaign announces 'Iowa Caucus Finder'

Story highlights

  • "The only way to ensure that Donald J. Trump will be our next President of the United States is to caucus for him on February 1st," the campaign said
  • The Iowa Caucus Finder is a digital tool that is part of Trump's ongoing effort to get out the vote in his tight race against Ted Cruz

Washington (CNN)Donald Trump's campaign on Friday revealed an "Iowa Caucus Finder" to make sure supporters know where to vote on February 1, part of the GOP front-runner's effort to make sure it has the turnout needed to win the first-in-the-nation voting state.

"The only way to ensure that Donald J. Trump will be our next President of the United States is to caucus for him on February 1st," the campaign said in a statement. "The caucus process is very fast and easy, and we are here to help if you have any questions."
The tool aims to help voters find caucus locations by asking users to submit their addresses. It also includes an instructional video on "what to do once you arrive at the pre-determined locations," the campaign said.
A CNN/ORC poll released Thursday found Trump leading his main opponent, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, among likely Republican caucus-goers in Iowa by 11 points, 37% to 26%. But the sampling is key for both candidates: Only including voters who previously caucused in their party's most recent competitive caucus, Cruz is neck-and-neck with Trump, with 30% for Cruz to 28% for Trump.
Trump will be campaigning across Iowa much of next week to encourage rally attendees to caucus, the campaign said Friday.
