I don't think you can get that answer. If I am understanding the process correctly, the Democrats have an open caucus where everyone in the precinct shows up and debates who they should support. The precinct as a whole then puts in a vote for the candidate.

If you were watching the results come in, the top Republicans were like 40,000 to 35,000 to 33,000 or something. The top Democrats were like 685 to 683 to 7 or something like that. The Democrats are counting precincts not voters.

Dondi mentored by Jeb, pretends to be a Tea Party candidate, gets elected to the Senate, pushes amnesty, runs for POTUS. Another first term senator with a soft on crime, open borders, pro-illegal immigration policy prescription. Hispanic Obama.

You obviously bought into the lie that McConnell tricked Cruz into voting for Obamatrade and the other lie that Cruz was never for legalization of illegals.

He will become the challenger to whichever of Trump or Cruz is still standing after Florida leading up to Super Tuesday.

I would prefer Trump, then Cruz.

But I think Rubio is better than Romney was.

<<< MNBC giving TRUMP fair coverage
Do you see what you are doing? Do you see who you have to get in bed with to justify your obsession with Trump? >>>

Look, you’re in for the business from FOX also.

Cruz will get propped up by the Establishment media influence, just long enough to try and hold TRUMP back and position Marco Rubio to battle Cruz, in a three way race for South Carolina, going into Florida.

FOX will work that angle. If you want to lay down for that, please, do so.

OTOH, TRUMP gets fair and unbiased reporting on both CNN and MNBC on the non-Marxist programs.

I must have been watching a different Fox News than you. They had Cruz on for 32 minutes, which IMO was too long for a victory speech by Cruz, even though it was a good speech and acknowledged those individuals (and family) that are his core team. I am a Cruz supporter, but I don’t think he was short changed at all. Rubio did his speech prior to Cruz. This was just the first primary after all as well.

Yeah, I was wondering about that .. because I was curious to see if Cruz beat Hillary .. because the left was hyperventilating that Cruz could not beat Hillary.

Anyway, the coverage is so slanted, I guess I’ll stick to listening to Rush for my news.

Otherwise, I have plenty of other things to do besides listening to the left bloviate.
