Hillary Clinton only needs to win 35% of the remaining delegates to cinch her party’s nomination. Donald Trump needs 50% of the remaining delegates to win the Republican nomination outright.
With both Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz favored to win tomorrow’s Wisconsin primary, and the state set as winner take all by congressional district, Wisconsin might help make sure that things continue to be pretty interesting.
In the video above – recorded the day before the primary – I predicted that Cruz would likely catch up by a net 30 delegates in the primary. Here are the final results:
Of an available 42 delegates, Cruz won 36 and Trump won 6, for a net gain by Cruz of 30.
Some points of the interview that didn’t make the story:
- I personally know at least two of the women supposedly involved. Both already publicly denied the story uncategorially.
- I’ve seen Ted Cruz at dozens of campaign events large and small over the past 6 years. I’ve never seen any behavior that was anything close to what is alleged.
- The voters have already proven by their votes that a well justified reputation for marital infidelity does not disqualify anyone for the job.
Bottom line, it’s an unfortunate effect of the celebrity race – and culture – we find ourselves in that in a week when dozens have been killed by terrorists, and our President literally attended a baseball game not only with a dictator but with leaders of groups classified by his own State department as terrorists, the focus is on the rumors about the private life of one of the candidates.
