There were no winners or losers, judging from the comments of the top performing candidates in the aftermath of the Iowa caucus results.

GOING THE DISTANCE

Make no mistake we are in a fight to the finish.

MRS HILLARY CLINTON


A WIN FOR CONSERVATIVES

Tonight is a victory for courageous conservatives across Iowa and all across this great nation.

SENATOR TED CRUZ


REVOLUTION CONTINUES

We just got in from Iowa, where we astounded the world, and now in New Hampshire we're going to astound the world again.

SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS


UNFAIR COVERAGE

The media has not covered my long-shot great finish in Iowa fairly. Brought in record voters and got second-highest vote total in history!

MR DONALD TRUMP


HIGH-STAKES ELECTION

People realised on the Republican side that we cannot afford - this country cannot afford - to lose this election, and that I give the party the best chance not just to unify our party but to grow it.

SENATOR MARCO RUBIO
