RUBIO AND CRUZ, HOPE WHAT HAPPENS IN
VEGAS NEVADA, STAYS IN VEGAS NEVADA …
Last night Donald Trump easily won the Nevada caucus by more than doubling his second and third place opponents. This is the third straight victory for Trump as he previously won the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries. A record turn out showed up for the Nevada caucuses. And it would seem that all demographics voted for Trump. With 96% of the vote in Trump was dominating the race with 45.9%. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were in a narrow battle for second with Rubio at 23.9% and Cruz at 21.4%.
Donald Trump trounced his rivals in the Nevada caucuses on Tuesday, notching his third consecutive victory and giving the Manhattan mogul even more momentum heading into Super Tuesday next week, when voters in a dozen states will cast their ballots.
Trump’s decisive win, which the Associated Press announced immediately after polls closed, was propelled by an electorate even more enraged than the ones that had swept him to wins in New Hampshire and South Carolina, and a second-place showing in Iowa.
“We love Nevada. We love Nevada,” Trump declared in his victory speech. “You’re going to be proud of your president and you’re going to be even prouder of your country.”
In his post caucus victory speech Trump said, “We weren’t expected to win too much and now we’re winning, winning, winning the country. And soon the country is going to start winning, winning, winning.” Trump continued to say, “We won the evangelicals. We won with young. With won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated.” What might be even more astounding is that he won 44% of the Lationos that voted in Nevada. Unbelievable. More than both Cruz and Rubio who are of Latino origin.
Donald Trump holds a commanding lead in the delegate count; however, the focus turns to Super Tuesday, March 1 where 13 states will hold their primaries. But it appears that Trump holds the lead in 9 of the 13 states.
