I can just hear the screams With a string of victories on Tuesday, Trump would advance his strong lead over Cruz, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, Ohio Governor John Kasich and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.. (1)>>SUPER-TUESDAY. Billionaire Donald Trump appears poised to take full control of the Republican presidential race Tuesday evening as results come in from GOP contests in 11 “Super Tuesday” states stretching from New England to the Deep South to Alaska. It's all over for the GOP . The New York Times came out with a useful map this week showing when voting ends in Super Tuesday states. The first polls to close—at 7 p.m. ET—are in Vermont, Virginia, and Georgia.In the Democratic race, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would go a long way toward cementing her path to the nomination if she scores big victories of her own over democratic socialist Bernie Sanders on Super Tuesday.In the end, Sanders’ chances in the 11 states that vote on Tuesday hinge on demographics. The higher the African-American share of the electorate — the group with which Sanders has most struggled to make inroads, even as he gained popularity within the Democratic Party over the past year — the lower the odds of a Sanders victory.Hillary has brought them to heel. Many of the Arfican-American supporters interviwed in SC said they didn't want to bother to research an alternative candidate. For the rest of the Republicans in the race , playing the "anti-Trump" game only exposes the reality of this political race. With the exception of Trump the rest of the candidates are stand in stooges . (2)>>My opinion the Republicans really -really want Trump , I'm beginning to think the media is just throwing around Trump's name so people will read their stories.The media has failed to realize that the more they demonize Trump the more popular he becomes. It's great because they can now see that people have had enough with the corruption from both the politicians and the media and mad would be an understatement. I believe it is a foregone conclusion that Hillary will be the Democrat nominee and Trump (ha-ha-ha-ha-ha) will be the GOP nominee (better start figuring out how you guys are going to hold onto your Senate seats). This shock and dismay is exacerbated by the realization that Clinton and Trump are the very best presidential candidates that the once-great USA can put forward at this critical juncture.
NOTES AND COMMENTS:
(1)>>SUPER-TUESDAY. Super Tuesday is a big deal for presidential hopefuls as they continue to campaign and vie for the highest office in the land. The massive series of caucuses and primaries that occur in one day affect both the Democratic and Republican parties. Candidates have been avidly campaigning around the country. The big event affects far more than the contiguous United States as well. (2)>>My opinion. Despite Trump’s widespread support across demographics in the Republican primary electorate, GOP leadership is desperately searching for a strategy to stop him from winning the nomination. The blustering New York businessman has vowed to build a wall on the country’s southern border; ban all foreign-born Muslims from entering the US; and, on Sunday, avoided condemnation of Ku Klux Klan leadership, which has largely endorsed his campaign.
