trump there, it's other people offering closing arguments, and he could lose ground, especially among those people who decide late. adam: spradling says while trump will likely draw attention with his event, the problem is, he' s leaving the main stage wide open for his chief rival in iowa, ted cruz. >> cruz is battling neck and neck with trump in iowa right now and it' s close enough to be too close to call. a move like this, with cruz having a good night thursday night, he could pick up iowa because of this one maneuver. adam: or he might not. as spradling notes, trump has broken many a political rule in this race and his poll numbers have remained strong. he' s decided to ' go his own way' in the past and it' s paid off but as he told first in the nation voters in farmington last night now is the time to close the deal. >> it takes guts to go and run for president. believe me. adam: after his thursday been
