BIG WIN FOR TED CRUZ IN WISCONSIN …
The Republican primary in Wisconsin went big for Sen. Ted Cruz as he defeated Trump, 48% to 35%. Is Donald Trump in trouble, or is this just a speed bump in the road? One thing is for certain, this Cruz victory greatly increases the odds that the Republican Party will hold its first open convention in four decades this July. Last night following his victory at his rally in Wisconsin, Cruz said he is “more and more convinced” that he can win the nomination. “Either before Cleveland or at the convention in Cleveland, we will win the majority of delegates.” Cruz looks to gain an overwhelming majority of the delegates in this huge win.
After Sen. Ted Cruz’s big victory in the Wisconsin primary, Republicans enter a new and critical phase in their volatile nomination battle, with Donald Trump’s rivals and those in the party establishment who are determined to stop him sharing a single objective: to keep the GOP front-runner as far short of a first-ballot convention victory as possible.
According to ABC News, preliminary exit poll results suggest a coalescing of the anti-Trump vote behind Ted Cruz in the Wisconsin presidential primary – raising the specter of a ceiling for Donald Trump.
