After hearing about Ted Cruz stealing the states of Colorado and Wyoming, where ordinary Republican voters did not even get a chance to vote, it’s good to see an actual primary where Republicans are allowed to vote, and best of all, Trump won with a landslide and Cruz got such a low percentage, he won’t get any delegates.
A CNN news article reports “On Tuesday, Trump came close to sweeping New York’s 95 delegates — a development that could help the Manhattan real estate mogul win the GOP nomination outright and avoid (a) …contested convention in July….”
“As of 12 a.m. ET, Trump held 847 delegates, while Ted Cruz had 553 and John Kasich had 148, according to CNN estimate. A Republican candidate needs 1,237 delegates to clinch the nomination.”
Trump has at least 90 delegates from the New York primary. Kasich has three and Cruz has zero. In order to get 1,237 delegates, Trump needs to win 55 percent of the remaining delegates. Most of the remaining states are primaries, where ordinary Republicans are actually allowed to vote for the candidate, they want. Trump tends to do well with primaries. Several states are “winner take all” which should help boost the percentage of the delegates that go to Trump. Ted Cruz tends to do well with caucuses, where cheating and swindling seems to be rampant.
Cruz recently got into a heated argument with Sean Hannity, who called him out on his recent thefts of Colorado and Wyoming, where Republican voters were denied any part of the process.
The illegal alien issue is the most important issue this election for most conservatives, and Trump is the only candidate, who can be trusted to deport the illegals and to build a wall. Cruz was a late-comer to the illegal alien issue, only hopping on board when he saw how well it was working out for Trump. There’s very little chance Cruz’s sponsors at Goldman-Sachs will let Cruz turn off the supply of cheap Latino labor that Wall Street is so fond of.
There might be some more RNC/Cruz delegate thievery down the line, but Trump’s lead is so huge right now that nothing short of wholesale vote fraud could stop Trump. It seems certain he will continue on to get over 1,237 delegates on the first vote at the convention, and all the political maneuvering and dirty tricks by Cruz and the RNC will be for nothing.
