Former President Donald Trump secured more than 50% of the votes in Iowa.

(IOWA) - It was the lowest turnout for an Iowa caucus in a quarter-century and many blame the weather.

Former President Donald Trump over-whelming won the Iowa Caucuses on Monday.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is projected to come in second, with about 21% of the vote and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to come in third, taking about 19%.

Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy suspended his presidential campaign shortly after being projected to finish a distant fourth in the caucuses, failing to break 8%.  He then put his support behind Donald Trump.

The state Republican Party estimated that about 100,000 people voted in the caucuses -- falling short of the record set in 2016, when 187,000 people voted in the GOP caucuses. There are more than 750,000 registered Republicans in Iowa. 

The candidates are on the move as the race now shifts to New Hampshire and South Carolina.

New Hampshire will hold the next nominating contest with a Jan. 23 primary.

Michigan will hold their primary on February 27.
