The countdown for the White House has begun as the first of the presidential caucuses kicked off in Iowa. And while the Democrats were deadlocked and Republican Senator Ted Cruz beat billionaire Donald Trump, there was only one winner from last night - #stickerkid.

During Hillary Clinton's rally, a lone face stuck out amongst the crowd - a sticker-clad college student with oversized Clinton stickers on his face, who Twitter has dubbed #stickerkid.

With Clinton and Sanders virtually tied in the 2016 Iowa caucuses, many are saying it will be #stickerkid who will make America great again.

Standing behind the Clintons during Hillary's victory speech, she won by less than 1 pc of the vote, Sticker Cheeks Guy had more important things to do than actually pay attention to what was being said on stage.

Throughout he stole the spotlight with his enthusiasm, crazy faces, and random dancing.

Speaking to Mashable USA, Sticker Cheeks Guy was revealed to be Drake University student Peter Clinkscales.

"I saw that a presidential candidate was going to be at my university and I thought that i should go see that presidential candidate at my university," he told the site following an interview after the caucuses.
