Donald Trump Sweeps I95 Primaries (CT, DE, MD, PA, RI) … But Do You Know the Real Story of the Night?

WHO’S LYING TO YOU?

Donald Trump swept through the I95 primaries last night taking all five states, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. Is it just me, but since when do Conservatives like candidates who win in liberal blue states? Wouldn’t that generally be a RINO?

Primary_I95_2016_Trump

What Fox News will tell you, the suddenly recent cable channel turned Trump Super PAC, other media outlets and many what I thought was once Conservative bloggers that Trump had a HUGE night, his best ever and that all others should get out of the race. They will some how make it appear that winning liberal dark blue states in a GOP primary is a good thing. FOX News et all will talk about Trump getting to 60% and this is the most fantastic and awesome thing ever. REALLY? Just curious, has anyone taken a look at the vote count in the 5 primary states from Tuesday, April 26? Is anyone mentioning how both Democrat candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders amassed a blistering number of votes Tuesday night that towered far above The Donald? The delegates may be important for Trump winning the GOP presidential nomination, but the voting shows that Trump does not have a snowballs chance in hell of winning any one of these five states in a general election.

Folks, you need to take a look at the volume of votes cast in ct, DE, MD, PA and RI. Its not even close. Did The Donald win 5 of 5 states last night? Yes he did. But please don’t get lost in the spin and the BS put out by others, including FOX News and their Trump love-fest.

The math does not lie America, most notably Republicans and Conservatives. Honestly, who cares whether Trump won all 5 states in last nights primary, they are all dark blue or blue states where a Republican presidential candidate will never win in a general election. All it tells me is that Trump is the most liberal of the three remaining GOP candidates. That is hardly a badge of honor.

CT:     Donald Trump: 122,519 – John Kasich: 60,447 – Ted Cruz: 24,779 (Total # of votes: 207,745)
Clinton: 169,763 – Sanders: 152,895 (Total # of votes: 322, 658)

DE:    Trump: 42,472 – Kasich: 14,225 – Cruz: 11,110 (Total # of votes: 67,807)
Clinton: 55,950 – Sanders: 36,659 (Total # of votes: 92,609)

MD:    Trump: 237,132 – Kasish: 100,333 – Cruz: 82,286 (Total # of votes: 419,758)
Clinton: 533,656 – Sanders: 281,700 (Total # of votes: 815,356)

PA    Trump: 892,702 – Cruz: 340,201 – Kasich: 304,793 (Total # of votes: 1,537,696)
Clinton: 918,649 – Sanders: 719,911 (Total # of votes: 1,638,560)

Sanders: 66,720 – Clinton: 52,493 (Total # of votes: 119,213)

 Hmm, Remember when Conservatives actually supported Conservative candidates?

Five States Primary (PA, MD, CT, RI, & DE) Today Expected to Help Trump and Clinton Widen Their Leads

Today’s 5  state “Amtrak Primary” is expected to help the two presidential front-runners, Republican Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. But what really will primaries in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware tell us about Donald Trump and the GOP primary? NOTHING. A note to those that are Republicans, Conservatives and Independents that lean right, these 5 states are blue and dark blue states. None of these states in a general election will vote for the GOP nominee, no matter who wins the nomination. Just like with Trump’s victory in the New York primary, not even Donald Trump stands a chance of winning against Hillary Clinton in Blue liberal states in a general presidential election.

map-red-blue

Five states began voting Tuesday in the “Amtrak Primary” in contests expected to help the two presidential front-runners, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, rack up ever-wider leads in their parties’ crucial delegates counts.

For Republicans, the race for delegates remains a key focus, with Trump hoping to secure the 1,237 delegates needed before the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July. His rivals Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich — now loosely aligned in hopes of stopping Trump — are not expected to significantly cut into the billionaire’s lead.

“I just hope everybody goes out and votes,” Trump said on Fox News on Tuesday as he continued to decry the electoral process as rigged and corrupt.

Fox News Poll: Donald Trump Leads Ted Cruz in Indiana, 41% to 33%

According to a FOX News poll ahead of the all important Indiana primary, Donald Trump leads by 8 points. According to the polls Trump has 41%, Ted Cruz is second with 33% and John Kasich is a distant third with 16%. Interestingly enough, without Kasich in the race, it’s 44 % for Trump and 42% for Cruz.Trump appears to lead among likely male and female voters over Cruz.

Full poll results can be found HERE.

Cruz_Trump_Kasich

Trump is ahead of Cruz by an eight-point margin among Indiana likely Republican primary voters:  41-33 percent.  That’s at the edge of the poll’s plus or minus four point margin of sampling error.  John Kasich comes in third with 16 percent.

Men are the key to Trump’s advantage.  He receives 44 percent to Cruz’s 33 percent, while Kasich takes 13 percent.

Among women, Trump ekes out a three-point edge (36-33 percent), while 20 percent back Kasich.

Cruz is preferred over Trump among self-described “very” conservative GOP primary voters (46-35 percent).

The vote among white evangelical Christians splits:  41 percent Cruz vs. 39 percent Trump.  This stands in sharp contrast to nearby Wisconsin, where the Fox News exit poll showed Cruz winning this group by a wide 22-point margin (55-33 percent).

  • I don’t think so, I believe Trump still needs California to cinch the deal. Clinton has it mostly cinched but Sanders just won’t go away!

Donald Trump Wins Rigged and Corrupt Republican New York Primary … Once Again Trump Benefits from the Process He Whines About

DONALD TRUMP WINS RIGGED AND CORRUPT NEW YORK PRIMARIESWINS 60% OF VOTE AND TAKES 97% OF DELEGATES.

Last night Donald Trump won the Republican New York primary with 60.5% of the vote, Ohio Gov. John Kasich came in second with 25.1% and Sen. Ted Cruz in third with 14.5%. But wait, it would appear that Trump garnered 89 delegates, Kasich 3 and Cuz 0. Three delegates are still outstanding. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE, HOW CORRUPT!!! But Donald Trump was all happy, smiles and giggles last night saying, “We love News York”. Of course he was because he won. Had he lost he would have been the miserable, sore loser that we have seen in the past. Let’s hope the shake up in the Trump team means this guy will act with a little more class as Trump has to mend many GOP fences if he does not want to get creamed in a general election, if he wins the Republican nomination.

First of all, did any one not think that Trump was going to lose New York or even that it would be close? Its Trump’s home state, he better have won. And for the folks and those at the FOX News Donald Trump super pac, Cruz would have won by the same amount had Rubio not been in the race at the time of the Texas primary.

Trump_NY Primary2

Seriously Mr. Trump, how can you be happy with winning only 60.5% of the vote, but taking 96.7% of the delegates? Why should you get 36.2% more of the delegates than the votes you received? I think Donald needs to give the delegates he received through this rigged and corrupt process back to Kasich and Cruz. Its only fair. Under the Donald Trump plan, he should have received 56 delegates, Kasich 23 and 13 for Cruz. NOT 89!!! But this dude still has the CO-JONES to actually whine about a process that he has benefited from. UNREAL.  In his victory speech Trump said, “No body should get delegates withing voting”. Really Donald? Care to give the ones that you did not win to your opponents?

In a campaign where both sides debated New York values, what New York values most is candidates who call it home, it seems.

The ultimate value of New York, though, is questionable in the march to the party nominations. Wins by the front-runners don’t alter stubborn mathematical realities that are likely to leave Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton with company in the race for a while longer.

Trump blasted through his supposed ceiling by reaching a new high-water mark, and in the process kept his hopes of capturing a delegate majority alive. He did not and could not, though, significantly widen his narrow path to a first-ballot win.

Clinton dispatched with Bernie Sanders in the state Sanders was born in, and where Sanders outspent Clinton substantially. But neither this nor any likely subsequent wins will end the Sanders challenge, not to mention the issues his candidacy has elevated, to Clinton’s regular discomfort.

Um, everyone does realize that Trump did not win Manhattan, right? Of all places in New York ti lose. There very location where his mighty Trump Towers and empire is located. Who honestly thinks that Trump could beat Hillary Clinton in a general election in New York? Never going to happen.

Daily Commentary – Wednesday, April 20, 2016 – Even Though This Was Taped Last Night, I’m sure Donald Trump Was Victorious in the NY Primary

  • Looks like Trump and Clinton were likely victorious. One thing for sure, the US political system seems like a joke

Donald Trump Says Regarding Contested Convention: ‘I Hope It Doesn’t Involve Violence’

WOW DONALD, THAT IS MIGHTY BIG OF YOU …

Donald Trump said Sunday in Staten Island, NY. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.” Really Donald, you are still whining about this near one week later?  With regards to Trumps comments that he hopes there is not violent, I would say, you are hardly doing anything to prevent it as you get people to a fever pitch with your rhetoric. There are plenty of things in politics that are rigged and corrupt, however, this is not one of them. I wonder is this is how he acts in his own business when he has to follow the rules that are set up to bid a contract? It is disconcerting that Trump does not seem to grasp the delegate process that has been around forever. If he cannot understand and navigate his way thru this process, what is he going to do when it comes to the electoral college and the job of president of the United States?

Folks, you don’t get to be a king when you are president. Note to Republicans, isn’t that one of your main gripes about Barack Obama?

Donald Trump thumbs up

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday that he hopes a contested Republican convention in July “doesn’t involve violence” if he is denied the nomination during second-ballot voting.

“I hope it doesn’t involve violence. I hope it doesn’t. I’m not suggesting that,” Trump told reporters on Sunday here in Staten Island. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.”

Trump said Saturday that the Republican National Committee is in for a “rough July” if he does not receive the nomination despite his overwhelming delegate lead. If the billionaire fails to cross the 1,237-delegate threshold necessary to clinch the nomination outright, anti-Trump conservatives hope to challenge him at the convention and install an establishment-friendly alternative.

More from Ann Althouse

Said Donald Trump today. Does he sound like he’s encouraging violence even when he’s saying he hopes there won’t be violence? If so, it’s because he doesn’t say “I don’t want violence” or “I urge my supporters to refrain from violence.” There’s something oddly passive about “I hope it doesn’t involve violence” — as if he holds no sway with his supporters, as if he’s suggesting it’s up to the other side to resist doing the things that will necessitate violence from my people. So I hear a vague, deniable threat. And this too contains a vague, deniable threat:

  • Trump is threatening a “rough July” if the RNC doesn’t straighten out the delegate system. Seems like there must be a better way to assign delegates!
