Trump wins Florida. 50% of vote in and Trump has 200,000 vote lead.

Numbers following polls with Trump at 45%.

Trump has early lead in North Carolina

Kasich has slight early lead in Ohio.

Kasich now has small early lead in Ohio

In Florida Trump has 40k more votes than Rubio and Cruz combined.

Best Rubio quote ever.

“Winner of Florida will be GOP nominee”.

Rubio killed by GOPe and gang of 8

Huh wait trump got more than 35 % and in Marcos home state… Odd

Please, God, don’t let Kasich win Ohio. I mean, illegals are made in God’s image and alladat, but can’t they be in God’s image in their home countries?

I am getting way tired of his sanctimonious drivel. Why didn’t he run as a Democrat when he had the chance? Democrats needed a choice, too, and because he robbed them of a moderate choice, they are stuck with and elderly Socialist, and an elderly criminal (who doesn’t admit to being a Socialist).

Rubio is such a douche. Also Ohio.

Not a surprise that Rubio got blown out in Florida.

He betrayed the Florida voter on gang of 8, and he ducked votes. While in Washington, he lived with Congressman David Rivera, known locally as “the gangster,” for shaking down the dog tracks for bribes.

Floridians are very suspicious of Miami politicians dominating the state. Rubio seemed different, but he blew his trust early and wasn’t ever going to get it back, even if the things he was *saying* were perfectly reasonable.

I understand why the Republican elite backed him. Said the right things, good story, good looking family… But his job was to to represent his voters, and he didn’t do that.

Why didn’t Rubio drop out – and both save face and his career?

His speech is poignant – and at the same time sickening to me. He took the only possibility of Trump not getting those 99 delegates all because his pride, his hubris, his demagoguery, was just too massive.

He personally is responsible for the outcomes of all these primaries. His actions, combined with Kasich’s, have deep, enormous consequences. Both will go down in history as the Benedict Arnolds of our time. IMHO, of course.

    casualobserver in reply to DINORightMarie. | March 15, 2016 at 9:38 pm

    Sounds too dramatic to me. Both Rubio and Kasich rightfully waited for the boost from their home states. Rubio failed. He leaves as a result. If Kasich can’t get momentum in the next few primaries he should leave, too. If he doesn’t in order to try and be a king maker, your anger might be more on point.

    SeanInLI in reply to DINORightMarie. | March 15, 2016 at 10:27 pm

    Rubio did not drop out because his political career as a Florida Republican was over when he ran as a Tea Party conservative, yet could not even pull off Blue Dog Democrat. His only shot was President.

    He will be on the FoxNews payroll before the year is out, and his own show before the end of 2017.

Looks like the Cruz ship runs aground tonight. 0 for 5. Now in 3rd place behind Kasich in Illinois and with basically all the states where his regional candidacy have voted he has no path to nomination.

Time for him to make nice with Trump and beg for shot at VP.

    casualobserver in reply to Gary Britt. | March 15, 2016 at 9:28 pm

    That would be premature and probably silly. Cruz gets some of the Rubio windfall especially in the west. And Rubio’s campaign folks are already signalling Cruz in social media. And then there’s the matter of Rubio’s current delegates. No way they go to Trump.

    I will be really disappointed if he does it. Still will not vote for Trump.

    SeanInLI in reply to Gary Britt. | March 15, 2016 at 10:38 pm

    I would opt out of a Trump administration because he is only going to get one term. Because:

    (1) he simply cannot do almost ANY of the things he promised during his campaign, because they are not legal or not even remotely feasible and

    (2) the economy is being kept afloat right now by forces unknown, and I suspect a sudden, unexpected economic disaster if Trump gets elected. It will not be Trumps doing or fault, but the house of cards Obama built is coming down, and Trump is going to be one spectacular scapegoat. The media will guarantee Obama avoids any responsibility.

    JimMtnViewCaUSA in reply to Gary Britt. | March 15, 2016 at 10:55 pm

    Has Sen Cruz ever cleared up his comments about the Chicago riots? I’ve emailed the campaign a few times to ask but I’m just a guy …. no surprise that they’re too busy to respond.

    I think Ted’s position was blown out of proportion but he should have leveled 100% blame at the lefttard disruptors.

Ok, enough is enough. It’s time for Rubio to get out.

Rubio is now a severely damaged candidate, and the likelihood of him ever being able to run for President again is in definite jeopardy. He’s gone from having potential, to being behind, to panicked, and now it has fully become embarrassing.

It’s ugly when you’re a sitting Senator and you lose your own state in the Primary.

If Rubio has ANY brains, he’ll regroup tomorrow, get his advisers together, and they will make a ringing, unconditional and enthusiastic endorsement of Ted Cruz.

If Kasich has ANY brains, he’ll do the same, and he’ll take his win in his home state (if he actually pulls it off) as raising his profile there, with an eye toward using that momentum and political capital to accomplish his vision for Ohio and leave the campaign riding high.

    Well, I’ll be damned. Rubio actually has a brain, and he didn’t even wait overnight.

    Let’s just hope it isn’t already too late for the not-Trump vote to coalesce behind Cruz and to secure sufficient delegates.

      Olinser in reply to Chuck Skinner. | March 15, 2016 at 10:59 pm

      Unfortunately I think it is too late.

      Cruz would have to win almost every remaining state in order to actually get the nomination – and Trump is polling well ahead in a number of states.

      Thanks to Kasich and Rubio’s stupidity, at this point Trump has a pretty high chance of getting the nomination outright.

        Here’s the upside to the remaining contests: Of the 22 (I think) remaining contests, the vast majority of them are “closed” primary states (meaning only registered Republicans can vote).

        In such “closed” primaries, Cruz soundly beats Trump (as we’ve seen in several such closed primaries thus far). It’s a structural advantage to Cruz, but the question is if Cruz can overcome the 200 delegate disadvantage at this point.

          Florida is a closed primary. You had to be a registered Republican for at least a month prior to the election to be allowed to have a GOP ballot. And Trump still won handily. In my precinct, Trump walked away with over 53% of the Republican vote. Like it or not, it is what it is.

          And there is a REASON for that. Trump has had a big push in Florida for months (remember immediately before the South Carolina Primary he was making a big push in Florida, holding rallies, getting campaign infrastructure in place and having groups push for registration changes to allow people to vote.

          Over 2600 people changed their party affiliation in Brevard County ALONE in order to vote on the Republican party line. My guess is that 95%+ of those voted for Trump.

          Florida for Trump wasn’t about campaigning in general terms. It was a concerted effort by Trump as a death-stroke to Rubio (because Trump knew that a Rubio that doesn’t carry his home state is a Rubio that can’t win at the convention). And it succeed, and now Rubio is out.

nordic_prince | March 15, 2016 at 9:39 pm

It’s mathematically impossible for Kasich to secure enough delegates to win the nomination. What exactly is he trying to prove? Regardless of his win in Ohio (scarcely a surprise there), he is dead last. If he were honorable he would hang it up. Something is fishy here ~

    Olinser in reply to nordic_prince. | March 15, 2016 at 9:56 pm

    He’s NOT honorable. This race is just proving that he’s a slimly little git who only cares about Kasich.

    I guarantee now that Rubio has dropped out Kasich will stay in all the way to the convention. Not because he thinks he’s going to win a single other state (he won’t), but because he thinks there’s a chance that the establishment will pass up Trump and Cruz to nominate him.

    He doesn’t care about conservatives (his amnesty announcement is proof of that). He doesn’t care about voters. All he cares about is Kasich.

      janitor in reply to Olinser. | March 15, 2016 at 10:57 pm

      He’s staying in as part of the establishment push to keep Trump from getting the nomination by siphoning off votes that Cruz can’t get in the northern and coastal states. But now, note, he’s also taking votes from Cruz.

      After the brouhaha over the “pledge”, the behavior of the GOPe is despicable. Trump is running against not only the other Republican candidates, and also the Democrats, the media and the powers-that-be in his own party. That’s he’s still standing, never mind leading, is remarkable.

As a fan of “Dune”, I had to share:

Dune #01

Good lord, I knew Rubio was going to be beaten in Florida, but even I didn’t think it would be this bad.

He had no path to the nomination, was not leading in ANY state, and literally his only hope was that Trump/Cruz couldn’t get the nomination and he could be crowned by the stupidly out of touch establishment – a course of action so utterly stupid that would piss conservatives off so much that Hillary Clinton could have shot a puppy on live TV and still beaten him.

I mean this is just pathetic. The idiot should have dropped out a month ago. Even a week ago he could have salvaged at least some of his image and political career.

Now he can’t even lobby for a VP slot, because he can’t claim he’ll bring Florida!

    DaMav in reply to Olinser. | March 15, 2016 at 10:13 pm

    Yet some here called this sorry state of affairs “Marcomentum!”. Could this be the end of the Tiger Beat Edition of LI?

    janitor in reply to Olinser. | March 15, 2016 at 10:49 pm

    Rubio was killed off by the people who know him best.

    Not just a defeat, but a smackdown. Whatever the RNC and DC “elites” might think, he’s toast in the party in Florida. For good reasons, only some of which involve his pathetic performance as a Senator.

    Let’s see now how “principled” Cruz really is with regard to making deals and courting Rubio and his Dreamer minions.

      Rubio supporters will go to Trump as much as they will to Cruz. The amnesty dreamers will go to Kasich. Kasich is now the new Rubio.

        Unlikely. Most of the Rubio supporters are Evangelicals that have mixed feelings about Trump’s 3 divorces, his ties with the NY Unions and Trump’s record on abortion.

        My guess is a disproportional group of them go to the Cruz camp (as most of them have already identified Cruz as their second choice).

    PhillyGuy in reply to Olinser. | March 16, 2016 at 1:38 am

    I wonder if Rubio understands how much of a fool he looks like. He talks tough thinks big and accomplishes nothing. Incredibly he has managed to piss off virtually everyone in the party for one reason or another. What a loser. Got hammered in his own state by a political novice. Go away Marco.

The jerk that heckled Rubio — a Hillary supporter, NOT a Trump supporter as he pretended to be.

In the comments, something similar about the Kaisich heckler.

    Zachary in reply to Valerie. | March 15, 2016 at 10:52 pm

    does it matter to anyone who these butt wipes claim they represent?

      JimMtnViewCaUSA in reply to Zachary. | March 15, 2016 at 10:57 pm

      I think yes. These false flag ops are done intentionally to create ill will. Not such a difficult thing to do, with tempers running high.

    Oh lord, Dim Jim Hoft gets punk’d again, and you all fall for it as well. Could you Trumpkins possibly be more gullible?

    Hint: the photo that Dim Jim, Boy Detective, is presenting as PROOF!!! that this guy is a Hillary supporter? That photo of him sitting right in the first row of a Hillary event? Zoom in, please. At his shirt. The one that reads “Settle For Hillary.” See where I’m going with this…?

    Seriously you guys. WND, TCTH, and GP have *no* credibility left. Their propensity for passing along fake news stories and breaking fake scoops just makes them laughing stocks. I don’t care how tasty the Trump-brand koolaid they’re handing out is, just set it down and walk away. For your own good.

What difference will it make if Trump or Cruz is elected if our GOP voters continue to vote for Rhino’s in the Senate and House? In NC, Trump got 371,300 votes, Cruz 335,000. Yet Burr, NC’s Rhino Senator got 475,600 votes. His closest rival, Greg Bannon, a true conservative, got less than 200,000. How can people possibly vote like this? Burr is an entrenched establishment guy and a polar opposite of Trump or Cruz. Yet, there is no doubt that people who voted for Trump and Cruz also voted for Burr. The party of stupid for sure. You wonder why we can’t make any headway? Have these voters considered anyone beyond President?

Cruz is out doing his marcomentum imitation and giving his victory speech. Proclaiming it a great night going 0-6 and dropping to a 200 plus delegate deficit.

Hey all #NeverTrump fans cheer up. New mathematics says there is still hope.

I’m looking forward to how Nate Silver at 538 is going to try and spin tonight as to mean Trump actually lost tonight and his predictionsagainst Trump are still right.

    “I’m looking forward to how Nate Silver at 538 is going to try and spin tonight as to mean Trump actually lost tonight”

    Why would he do that, when his predictions for last night were actually pretty much spot-on?

    He predicted Trump would win Illinois, Florida, North Carolina; and lose Ohio. And…?

    Or is there some different Nate Silver at 538 you’ve been following?

So Trump is considered to have “won” Illinois based upon winning the 15 delegates allocated by state-wide popular vote? What about the 54 delegates elected by Congressional District? I have not see those results and it is easy to see a scenario where Cruz takes more delegates via that route as he is stronger downstate.

Sammy Finkelman | March 17, 2016 at 6:07 pm

The winner in Missouri still undecided both between Clinton and Sanders and between Trump and Cruz. It matters more in the Republican race.

Trump leads by less than 1 point, or 1,726 votes, with 100% reporting.

Donald Tump 382,093 40.9% 25 delegates elected

Ted Cruz 380,367 40.7% 5 delegates elected

22 undecided. 5 delegates elected winner take all per congressional district, and 12 for the statewide winner.

That means Trump has 5 CDs, and Cruz has 1, with 2 CDs and the statewide winner undecided.

John Kasich 92,533 9.9

Marco Rubio 57,006 6.1

Other 21,784 2.3


Clinton leads by less than 1 point, or 1,531 votes, with 100% reporting

Hillary Clinton 310,602 49.6% 32 delegates

Bernie Sanders 309,071 49.4 32 delegates

Other 6,404 1.0
