Trump wins Arizona.

He should probably declare victory and go to sleep because Utah and American Samoa will not be good to him.

    In Utah the 50% split is key.
    Though what I’m hearing Trump might make winning a close thing.
    Of course that’s people on each side say before the numbers come in.

So when will Cruz come out and declare victory even though he is getting at least ten delegates less then Trump?

“All others” beat Ted Cruz in Arizona.

    Nevermind, the results I was looking at were incomplete. The final result may be different.

    And yes, the “all others,” includes a lot of early voting support for Rubio, so Cruz’s showing is less embarrassing than it looks at first.

Trump wins Arizona Yuuuge. Beats Cruz and kasich combined by 15% points.

Now if lyin Ted Cruz fails to get over 50% in Utah then the Cruz schlonging will be complete.

With missouri win added in Trump will have 751 delegates plus whatever he gets out of Utah and could end the night with around 300 delegate lead over Cruz.

80% of republicans in Arizona vote against Cruz. 90% vote against Kasich.

    For AZ, it will be interesting to compare the number of votes for Hillary and the count for Trump.
    Also, the count for Trump versus the count for Mitt in ’12.

    The outcome in UT is also of interest, as Ted didn’t win any states for a while and needs momentum to re-energize his campaign.

      Don’t forget to compare McCains totals too.

        Yeah, I’ve only seen numbers for a couple of states but in those Trump blows away Hillary and Bernie combined while picking up 35ish percent of the Repub votes.

        Also Trump far exceeding Mitt’s totals.

    MikeInCA in reply to Gary Britt. | March 23, 2016 at 2:02 am

    And 53% vote against Donald Trump.

    Probably about the same as in November.

Well, AZ another train wreck. The brokered convention may or may not happen.

It’s not just Rags and influential LI commenters who are disturbed by the thought of Trump. Somebody wrote “Trump 2016″ in chalk and Emory students need therapy!

Note that the Emory Admin is taking it VERY seriously.
The University will review footage “up by the hospital [from] security cameras” to identify those who made the chalkings … if they’re students, they will go through the conduct violation process, while if they are from outside of the University, trespassing charges will be pressed.

The Cruzers should face the fact that Cruz will not be the nominee, no matter what.

To clinch the nomination, Trump needs 51% of the currently available delegates. Cruz needs 83%—and that ain’t happening.

If neither has the delegates, the GOPe has an opening to work its, well, let’s just call it magic. Now, we know a few things about how this magic will play out:

1. The GOPe doesn’t want Trump.

2. The GOPe doesn’t want Cruz, either.

3. We can reasonably postulate that the GOPe will try to foist a candidate on us who hasn’t already been, essentially, already rejected by the voters. That leaves Kasich out.

And that’s why we’ve seen so many trial balloons of late. Romney … Ryan … a series of has-beens and nobodies. So far they’ve all been met with derision or profound indifference. But the GOPe will doubtless keep plugging at it; July’s still a long way off. All we can be pretty sure of at this point is that if the GOPe has anything to say about it, the nominee won’t be Trump … or Cruz.

My goodness…the thread of comments seemed so “Trump”; the theatrical sneering and taunting satisfaction over trashing Ted Cruz suddenly evaporated. Since when do Trumpians cease trying to emulate their mentor? Could this be a viral outbreak of class?

No such luck – it seems the breaking news in Utah “huuuuggggee” 2/3rds of all Republicans going for Cruz has sent the arm waving hooters into the bush.

Oh well, we will hear another week or two of their demanding that we stop opposing Trump and America…

Are you kidding? This is too entertaining.

Great wins for Cruz in Utah and Trump in AZ! We’ve got some GREAT candidates this year; let’s not eff it up.

New Qpac Poll shows second choice for most Kasich supporters is Donald Trump, not Ted Cruz. And second choice for most Cruz supporters is… Donald Trump. So forcing either Kasich or Cruz out just gives Trump more support.

Dang! Both of Jeb’s supporters have moved to Cruz. Lucky for Trump one supporter is in a state that already voted.

    I wonder if the NET gain of these RINO endorsements is positive for Cruz. The smell of Lindsey Gramnesty still hasn’t cleared and along comes Mr. Illegal Immigration is an Act of Love to give his stamp of approval.

Utah is trending liberal with mass migration and development of high-density population centers.

The Mormon states have all voted. The evangelical, economically liberal, social issues states have almost all voted.

Now behins the series of Humiliating defeats for Ted Cruz. The voters don’t want him & the party doesn’t want him. His new best friends Mitt Romney & Jeb Bush will first undermine him and then stab him in the back (and then back the bus over his corpse).

So, Ted has no path to the Presidency (Actually he has one path: quitting now and leveraging his current second place status into being the party favorite during the next cycle).

And the GOP delegate selection process is rigged. Rick Perry! Tom Coburn! Who will be the hack that is sacrificed to Hillary?

There is absolutely no way for Cruz to win a general election!

It’s comical when he says Trump can not get the 1237 number.
When he(Cruz) needs 80+ % of the remaining delegates to win!

Ted is toast……………..

Trump will go over 1237 if he wins Arizona, New York and California.

As soon as Trump wins New York Cruz is mathematically eliminated from 1237. If by chance Trump wins wisconsin Cruz is mathematically eliminated before New York.

Cruz is dead slime crawling.
