Trump scores more than Rubio and Cruz combined in Nevada

Another day another dollar

Fox News reporting: Donald Trump gained a major victory in Nevada, Tuesday night during Republican Caucus. This is his third straight triumph over rivals and possibly a sign of the incoming snowball effect where each win builds upon momentum, gained in the previous round.

Second place battle was fought between Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, both ending with 23.9% and 21.4% respectively. With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Trump got 45.9 percent of votes.

“Now we’re winning, winning, winning,” Trump said before a cheering crowd of supporters in Las Vegas. “Soon, the country is going to start winning, winning, winning.”

Trump, during the meeting, was very aggressive and unrelentingly attacked Cruz’s character.

"There's something wrong with this guy," Trump said at a Las Vegas rally Monday night. On Tuesday, he called Cruz a "soft, weak, little baby" who lies.

Polls had shown Trump leading in Nevada, but polling in The Silver State is sparse and the contest is often unpredictable. Mitt Romney won the last two GOP caucuses in 2008 and 2012.

Nevada’s voting took place in schools, community centers and places of worship across the state. There were reports of long lines and even caucus volunteers wearing campaign attire – specifically pro-Trump. Though it should be noted, that Republican officials said it was “not against the rules for volunteers to wear candidate gear.”

Understanding the gravity of the situation, Rubio and Cruz have been laying into each other viciously in recent days, an indication they know Trump can be slowed only if one of them is eliminated.

Rubio -- who finished third in Iowa and fifth in New Hampshire -- had already left Nevada, preferring to campaign in Minnesota and Michigan. In recent days, he has also picked up support from such Republican establishment heavyweights as Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis and Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch.

"We have incredible room to grow," Rubio told reporters during a Monday night news conference on his campaign plane.

 

 

EXPERT OPINION

Joshua Tartakovsky

What this article fails to mention is that Trump won 45% of the Hispanic vote. Only 27% voted for Rubio and 18% for Cruz. That says a lot. It means that Hispanics had no trouble voting for Trump contrary to claims by the liberal media. In fact, white liberals must be eating their hearts out as say Hispanics vote for Trump more than they vote for Latino candidates.

Of course, it’s not this simple. Those who voted for Trump were already Republican and Trump needs to work much harder to get the Latino vote nationwide.

But it is possible. After all, George W. Bush got 44% of the Latino vote in 2004, and Barack Obama got 71% of the Hispanic vote in 2012, according to a CNN article (What Nevada showed about Trump's Hispanic support - and what it didn't, Rafael Romo, CNN.com, February 25 2016). But Obama turned himself into a disappointment with many Hispanics.  They think he is weak and clueless.

It is true, as the article states, that a majority of Hispanics tend to vote Democrat: 36% of Latinos vote Republican and 62% tend to vote Democrat. However, Hispanics, unlike white liberals, know there is a major problem with the porous border, that too many migrants are coming in, and that the economy is not as good as it used to be as more Mexicans are leaving than coming). They want to see a better economy, they know the Mexican government is not innocent, and they don’t care if Trump says what is on his mind. What matters to them is that he is real  unlike Hillary.

Trump can win and get the Latino vote. But a big dilemma would be who would he chose as his number 2. I recommended Ted Cruz earlier, but that was a mistake. Perhaps a Latina Republican would be a better choice.

To conclude, Hispanics can and do vote for Trump. They are realistic about the problems the nation is facing and they care more about the economy than about political correctness.  Trump needs to appeal to their hearts and explain how he will improve their lives. And to be straight, getting a hot Latina as his number 2 on his side, can be a winning combination.
