It's caucus day in Iowa. Donald Trump is hoping his supporters will come out and caucus him to victory.

FOX's Jared Halpern reports from Des Moines:

The polls here suggest tonight is Donald Trump's to win....

(Trump) "I thought real estate people in New York were bad. These politicians are the worst liars, wow."

But the big question, can Trump's enthusiam translate to votes or can caucus-goers still be swayed in the final hours?

(Cruz) "Stand and speak for us. If we stand together we will win."

Texas Senator Ted Cruz considered Trump's closest competitor.

Most Republicans are doing last minute appeals here in Iowa, though Governors Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and John Kasich all spend caucus night in New Hampshire.

For the leading Democratic presidential hopefuls... it's a tight race.

The contest between Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders is much closer than most expected on caucus day.

(Sanders) "This is a campaign of the people, by the people and for the people."

Sanders is relying on support from first-time caucus-goers to counter a well-established ground game from Clinton.

(Clinton) "I know many of you here are already committed to caucus for me and I thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley is polling a distant third, but many of his supporters will be forced to ultimately choose between Sanders and Clinton, potentially swinging the final result.
