Trump Win NV 2

Report from CNN:

Donald Trump notched a resounding win in the Nevada caucuses Tuesday, channeling the roiling anger of Republican voters against the establishment and sweeping almost every category of the electorate to build his dominance in the delegate count.

It was a stunning show of momentum for his campaign, one that made it increasingly difficult to imagine a scenario where any other GOP candidate wins the Republican nomination.

“We love Nevada,” Trump said during his brief victory speech at his party in Las Vegas late Tuesday night. “We will be celebrating for a long time tonight.”

“We weren’t expected to win too much and now we’re winning, winning, winning the country,” Trump said. “And soon the country is going to start winning, winning, winning.”

He basked in his success across demographics.

“We won the evangelicals,” he said. “We won with young. With won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated.”

On Wednesday morning, he looked ahead to a Trump presidency, detailing the three things he’d do on Day 1 if he wins the White House.

“First thing is knock out some of the executive orders done by our president,” Trump told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

“One, on border where people can pour into (the) country like Swiss cheese. I would knock out Obamacare. Take care of our vets and military,” the billionaire businessman said.

Donald Trump victory speech from Nevada:

In the grand scheme, Nevada is only worth 30 proportionally allocated delegates, meaning Trump will win about 12 delegates with Cruz and Rubio each taking 5. The rest to be determined shortly.

However, in the game of momentum and psychological campaigning, Trump has now won 3 out of 4 contests, the most recent with a very high portion of the vote. Heading into Super Tuesday next week could be a game changer for the race if Trump runs the table and starts winning the delegate math game.

  1. What a monstrous showing by Trump and an embarrassing showing by Carson and especially Kasich; there is no way in hell these two guys last past Super Tuesday. Ever since Iowa Ted Cruz has been doing poorly and if he does not perform well in Texas (at least a second place finish) on Super Tuesday, he is finished. For if he can’t even do well in his home state, what else can he win? Rubio is still the best person to beat Trump.

    • Cruz is a creep. He tried to change his image by firing one scapegoat. But if there are any other examples of cheating, the buck will stop there–and that should be the end of him.

      • True, but still a record for he Nevada Caucus. But still, the point remains of those votes, it was a pretty big showing.

        • Caucuses generally don’t generate the numbers that actual primary election do. Right now, there’s more interest in the Republican race which drives more people to vote as they feel that are able to have some influence in naming the eventual nominee. The Dems are running a two person race where the insurgent candidate is not generating the same volume that the 2008 contest did, plus Democrats have held the White House for two terms and that also works against driving more people to the polls.
          However, when the November election rolls around, it’s likely we’ll see record numbers from both sides of the aisle, and not just the Republican side. Plus, it’s now starting to look increasingly possible for a 3rd party challenge from the right should Trump prevail in Cleveland.
