So far, so bad. Right now, CNN projects:
Trump to win Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, Massachusetts and Tennessee.
Clinton to win Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas and Texas.
Sanders to win Vermont and Oklahoma.
Cruz to win Texas and possibly Oklahoma.
Rubio has yet to win a state and is doing poorer than hoped.
With tonight’s wins, Clinton has basically won the nomination. But Sanders is pulling enough support that she will probably continue to move left.
We’ll see what the delegate counts look like in the morning, but Trump will clearly have a plurality, possibly enough, given his national polling numbers, to end this thing over the next two weeks as “winner-take-all” states vote.
So, yeah, we’re staring down an election between a Washington insider leaning as far Left a she can and the insider “businessman” who has supported her for years.
Update: Tomorrow I will be taking the Betas to Disney World for a week. This political season has been intense and it’s barely March. So unless Donald Trump reveals himself to be a lizard person, I will not be blogging for the next week. I need the time away. Hopefully, my co-bloggers will have plenty to say.
