As we have been predicting, Trump swamped his rivals by piling up seven wins across the nation, demonstrating broad appeal for his anti-establishment movement.
What we will witness from now forward is the major onslaught against the American ‘White-Night‘ Donald Trump. Even who supports him, from Chris Christie to even the pro-Trump CNN analyst Jeffrey Lord will be on the hunt. Trump’s opposition know their time is short and must unleash every demon, bring out every sin, and find every snitch and turn them upside down. They will collect whatever garbage they can find. The next several days will be the days of dirty laundry out on the open.
While elections brings out the worst of us, it also brings out the greatest of hypocrites, who are mad and angry. Trump did not only win across the conservative South (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia), but also scooped up moderate Massachusetts and Vermont which shows that he will win heavy in the east coast.
According to the most recent poll Trump looks like he will win Michigan on the 8th (Trump 33, Rubio 18, Cruz 18) and Kentucky (Trump 35, Rubio 22, Cruz 15) and will do the same in Florida on the 15th, (Trump 45, Rubio 25, Cruz 10).
He is ahead of his next rival, Cruz, by 29% in the delegates.
We predict Trump will do well. Presidential politics is, at its core, all about math. Nowhere is that more true than in the fight for delegates to this summer’s Republican National Convention. And, the delegate math is close to conclusive: Donald Trump will be extremely close to the 1,237 delegates he needs to formally claim the party’s nomination by the end of the primary process. If one wants to do an analysis forward, it looks like Trump is estimated to gain 1,246 delegates — or nine more than he would need to be the party’s official nominee at the party convention in Cleveland in July.
As we said yesterday and before, Americans are tired, and in our view, its over, not only for the establishment, but for the democrats.
Hard to believe?
All these polls we watch about how ‘Hillary beats Trump’ with a handful percentage points is based on polls and not turnout. Such news banks on Americans lousy in math. However, when one looks at the real turnout, Trump will blow Hillary right out of the water.
Just looking at last night alone, more than 8.5 million Republicans (compared to only around 4.7 million in those same 11 states in 2012) turned out to vote in the 11 GOP Super Tuesday states that reported results. Republican turn out is way more higher than Democrats. This suggests way far more enthusiasm than the last time Republicans picked a nominee. This would be 81 percent higher than four years ago.
Contrast that with the Democrats. In the Dems’ 11 states reporting results from last night, turnout totaled only around 5.9 million vs. 8.5 million in 2008, when Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were in the middle of what would would be a long, hard-fought race.
Take a look at other states in recent past:
The next two weeks will be crucial for the Stop Trump effort. Nearly 400 delegates are up for grabs before March 14. After that day, states will no longer be required to allocate their delegates proportionally. This rule change will help the leading candidate — presumably Trump — emerge from the pack and win the nomination.
Trump’s opposition are not happy.
“The only way to beat Donald Trump is to stand together united and that’s what I hope and believe will happen in the days and weeks to follow,” Cruz said.
For Donald Trump, it’s about wins now. While Trump used his seven Super Tuesday wins to argue that he can unify this lousy Republican Party behind his candidacy, opponents contemplated how to deny America’s ‘White-Night’ Trump the delegates needed to clinch the GOP presidential nomination on a first convention ballot in July. Marco Rubio — who got crumbs in the Minnesota caucuses is now saying that Trump is “a con artist”.
The con-artist became a con-artist hunter. The man who cannot balance his finances said: “We are seeing in state after state his numbers coming down, our numbers going up,” Rubio told supporters at a “kickoff rally” for his drive to the March 15 primary in his home state of Florida. Rubio cannot deal with the agony of defeat and resorts to spin and sophism.
More con-artists are arising to take a punch at the title. Even Jeffrey Lord, our favored Trump analyst who defied all other analysts by predicting Trump’s rise was attacked with the typical “racism” baiting by African American Van Jones:
While Jones uses rhetoric and as it seems, race baiters have a loud mouth, Lord uses history. Lord has a history of bringing up allegations of white supremacy in the Democratic party. He wrote a 1900-word article in the Wall Street Journal in 2008, pointing out the ‘missing’ parts of the democratic party’s history – most of them after the Civil War and during the Civil Rights movement. In the 1870s, the Klan was a near-surrogate for a Democratic Party to now the blame is being transferred to the Republicans.
And now editors at six New Jersey newspapers think it’s about time Chris Christie quits again—this time, as governor. A joint editorial from six newspapers including the Asbury Park Press, the Cherry Hill Courier-Post, and the Morristown Daily Record called for the New Jersey governor to resign that position on Tuesday, less than a month after he dropped out of the GOP presidential race that had been occupying so much of his time for several months.
All this and instead of uniting, advisers and longtime allies to Clinton say they’re preparing for a fight that they think could be the ugliest general election in political history.
While Trump’s rivals for the GOP crown suggest Clinton is licking her chops at the chance to take on the businessman, her allies see vulnerabilities against Trump. Looking at the turnout numbers of Republican voters, the fight (as we said) is over before it starts.
Politician’s disconnect with the American people will backfire. Clinton mocking Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again” to “Make America Whole Again” will backfire. American’s in general do not care about making their nation “whole again” to include Muslims which Clinton will be picking on Trump’s comments about throwing them out.
