#SuperTuesday Shocker!!! Results For @RealDonaldTrump, #Hillary2016, @BernieSanders, @MarcoRubio, @TedCruz

Update: Hillary Clinton wins Massachusetts. Donald J. Trump wins Vermont. Only state left is Alaska. Little polling in that hard to poll Alaska. Sarah Palin might help Trump there. Does Bernie Sanders have a shot to make it 5? Our congrats to Kasich for the surprise almost win.

————————————–

Update VII: Bernie Sanders wins Colorado caucuses. Bernie Sanders wins Minnesota caucuses. Money saves the socialist! Sanders survives SuperTuesday. Marco Rubio clicked his heels and won Minnesota. Even when he doesn’t win, Trump wins. Cruz, Kasich, Carson, and Cruz will stay in and keep the field divided as Hillary can’t scrape the Sanders off her shoes.

—————————————

Update VI: Trump wins Arkansas. Kasich moving in on Trump in Vermont. Sanders ahead of Hillary in Colorado. Rubio clicks his heels, like Dorothy, to win Minnesota.

—————————————

Update V: Yay!!! We get our shocker. @BernieSanders and @TedCruz win Oklahoma.



Does Oklahoma have a meth problem?

—————————————

Update IV: Cruz wins Texas. Cruz and Trump in tight race in Oklahoma too. Hillary joined Bernie Sanders with a victory speech. At the same time Marco Rubio gave his “victory” speech even as he loses everywhere. Cruz likely stays in the race now and Marco Rubio will never leave the race even if his heels snap off. Trump smiles.

—————————————-

Update III: Trump wins Virginia (Fox News call, waiting on others). Hillary wins Arkansas.

—————————————–

Update II: Hillary wins Tennessee and Alabama. Trump wins Massachusetts, Alabama, Tennessee. Trump, with very low vote totals in, is very close to the 50% barrier that turns Georgia to a winner take all state. Trump wins in Massachusetts and Alabama – who woulda thunk it?

—————————————–

Update: Bernie Sanders wins Vermont as everyone and their pet(s) expected with a margin Ted Cruz will eye with envy. Hillary Clinton wins Virginia and Georgia. Donald Trump wins Georgia too and we will watch to see who crosses the 20% threshold to win delegates there.

——————————————

Will Donald J. Trump announce his endorsement by Florida Governor Rick Scott at the press conference scheduled for 9:00 p.m. ET tonight??? Will Marco Rubio fall off his high heels??? Will Ted Cruz trip over his tongue??? Will Bernie Sanders, a.k.a. Saint Bernard, bark??? Will Hillary? And what are John Kasich and Ben Carson having for dinner tonight???

We’ll get the answers to all those questions tonight. There will be a shocker tonight, we just don’t know what it is yet. Maybe it’s that Rick Scott endorsement, if any.

Big questions for tonight are what states are won by whom and who comes in second with enough percentage value to have delegates allocated to him – on the GOP side. On the Dem side, there’s really not much to see tonight, but the results will provide fodder for analysis tomorrow when we compare the Ds and the Rs results and look to November.

Tonight it is all about results. We’ll update constantly. We’ll gossip and bitch and make up vicious stories about candidates – like Little Marco and Lyin’ Cruz have been doing lately.

We’ll analyze later.

Tonight, it’s results, gossip, noodle salad, bitchin’ and cacklin’ for us.

  1. GonzoTx, Vermont has a 20% limbo pole for delegate allocation. Keep an eye on that for second and third place. Georgia too.

  2. Bernie Sanders wisely taking his victory lap early, in Vermont where he will likely win with 70 or more percent margins. That’s something Ted Cruz won’t be able to enjoy in his home state.

  3. Haven’t even counted 1% in Vermont, stuck know on 1% in Virginia. ..
    Trying to steal votes behind the scenes I’m sure…

  4. Will Donald J. Trump announce his endorsement by Florida Governor Rick Scott at the press conference scheduled for 9:00 p.m. ET tonight??? Will Marco Rubio fall off his high heels??? Will Ted Cruz trip over his tongue??? Will Bernie Sanders, a.k.a. Saint Bernard, bark??? Will Hillary? And what are John Kasich and Ben Carson having for dinner tonight???

    lol this reminded me of the voiceovers on the series that was a spoof, SOAP. (yeah, ok, it wasn’t 29 I turned today lol)

  5. Update: Bernie Sanders wins Vermont as everyone and their pet(s) expected with a margin Ted Cruz will eye with envy. Hillary Clinton wins Virginia and Georgia. Donald Trump wins Georgia too and we will watch to see who crosses the 20% threshold to win delegates there.

  6. CNN notes that Hillary and Saint Bernard will debate 2 times next week. We’ll have a busy week now that we are in the eye of the storm.

  7. Someone posted this on another website, in relation to Trump supporters (taking the red pill). That’s probably true. It has always reminded me of 2008 PUMAs, too.

  8. Hell has frozen over, apparently only. Fox Perino was praising Hillary. …another example the fix is in.

    Uniparty…

  9. Keep an eye on Georgia. If Trump gets 50% it’s winner take all. With a low vote count Trump is at 48%.

  10. It would be helpful if we could hear the words in this video, to know if its title is accurate. You can hear the end, though, and I thought Hillary’s tone wasn’t too gracious. But perhaps I’d feel differently if I could hear the beginning!!! You can’t hear anything the kid is saying at all, but her face and body posture suggest she’s not being mean – her face looks sweet, IMO.

    Clinton Confronted By Voter Who Thinks Her Record Shows She Doesn’t Care About African Americans

  11. Update II: Hillary wins Tennessee and Alabama. Trump wins Massachusetts, Alabama, Tennessee. Trump, with very low vote totals in, is very close to the 50% barrier that turns Georgia to a winner take all state. Trump wins in Massachusetts and Alabama – who woulda thunk it?

    —————————————–

  12. GonzoTx, Virginia has no allocation thresholds. So a win is a win there. All Trump has to do is win, not show or place in this horserace.

  13. gonzotx – I am just as obsessed with Virginia. I don’t want that little pecker to win anything tonight!

  14. That Black Activist was in Hillary’s face, and spouting off about one comment 20 years ago.
    All Black BS. Guess Hillary will need to carry around Trayvon Martins mother more for street creed.
    I grew up in a large city with very militant Blacks…there is no appeasing.

    Top Rubio adviser preparing donors for dismal Super Tuesday

    Marco Rubio’s top campaign adviser huddled with roughly 40 bundlers and K Streeters Tuesday morning to prepare them for a difficult primary election night—as well as to brief them on the campaign’s plan for what to do next. [snip]

    Sullivan’s comments that the Rubio campaign plans to take this all the way to the Republican National Convention echo a message he delivered in New York last week. And it dovetails with what Rubio himself has been saying on the stump since Saturday, vowing to “campaign as long as it takes” in order to prevent Donald Trump from winning the nomination and potentially upending the Republican Party as a whole.

    The Rubio campaign is holding another Tuesday session on Capitol Hill to walk backers through the delegate map. [snip]

    Sullivan also got several inquiries about Florida and how Rubio would deal with a loss there. Sullivan said that he thought Jeb Bush would ultimately endorse Rubio and that he would win the state.

    Not everyone who attended left the meeting thinking the campaign had a workable plan to dethrone Trump as the party’s expected nominee.

    It was a presentation that defied reality,” said one Rubio backer. “They said their convention strategy was not contingent on winning any states… Even if you go to the [second ballot] why would anyone say Marco Rubio is the guy to give it to?”

    Queen of Denial.

    Do you remember the movie A Perfect Storm? Do you remember the old man in the yacht with the two young women aboard, who takes one good look at the storm of the century, and the terror of his two guests and says: I have been through this before. The trick is to ride it out. If we submerge, that’s okay, because we will float back up to the surface like a bouyant cork. So sad that the two young women, fearful for their own lives, do not listen to the old frizzle, but call in the coast guard. So lucky they did to avoid Davy Jones locker. I don’t know about you, but to me, the political class reminds me a lot of the old frizzle. As Richard points out eloquently in this article–hell he is always eloquent I do not need to guild the lilly, after fucking the country like a house cat, after squandering the peace dividend of world war II, and after indulging all of their smell of the lamp theories about how to conduct foreign relations, their main goal now is to survive. For the good of the nation, I pray they do not. This may be a blow to Harvard. But it would be a boon to this nation. Fuck em. In my view, our girl Hillary hitched her wagon to a dark star. I defer to Richard:

    The Hillary Defense

    When does the cavalry arrive?

    Greg Sargent, channeling the Democratic establishment’s fear that Donald Trump is unstoppably advancing like the Blob on the capital, has laid out Hillary Clinton’s defense plan against him. The first thing Hillary will do is fire up the liberal base and circle the wagons.

    Today’s New York Times delivers the most comprehensive report yet on the evolving Dem strategy. It’s worth dividing the Dem approach into two categories: First, there are the attacks that are designed to tear Trump down in the eyes of core Dem constituencies (minorities, single women) and groups of gettable swing voters (suburbanites and college educated whites).
    The other component of her defense is to deploy a yet to be announced set of firebreaks in the path of what is now recognized as incandescent angry white males. “The Clinton operation .. and other Democrats are poring over polling data to understand the roots of Mr. Trump’s populist appeal.” From this hope to deduce how best to neutralize the angry demographic they’ve ignored and reviled all these years. Sargent quotes a New York Times article which explains.

    Mrs. Clinton’s uneven performance with male voters so far, especially white men, could create an opening for Mr. Trump to attract Democrats and independents who are socially and culturally moderate and open to his call for a strong military, fearless foreign policy and businessman’s approach to the economy. Those voters could give him an edge in places like North Carolina, which Mr. Obama won in 2008. But Clinton advisers also worry about Ohio, Florida and Democratic-leaning states in presidential elections that Mr. Trump has vowed to contest, like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
    Clinton’s idea is to throw a few sops at the crowd in the hopes they’ll go home. The Republicans are also belatedly realizing they must outbid Trump on key issues like immigration, jobs and national defense to stop his advance. But in both cases the problem will be whether anyone will believe them this time. Hillary’s credibilty problems need no explanation. But the GOP must also outbid Trump in a way that unambiguously binds them to their pledges. This time the promises need collateral. James Hohmann writing in the Washington Post observed that the most threatening aspect of the rebellion has been its unsuspected headlong commitment, almost bordering on kamikaze determination.

    “It’s like Dr. Strangelove,” said a tip-top Republican who is closely aligned with the GOP establishment and supported Chris Christie until he dropped out. “People are saying, ‘I’m not gonna tell my friends and family I’m voting for Trump,’ but then they’re pulling the trigger for Trump. I might as well be like Slim Pickens at the end of the movie and just ride the atomic bomb down and see what happens.”
    Up until now the political elite always believed that discontent could be bought off. But by backing Trump voters have echoed Sherlock’s famous answer to Moriarty.

    Moriarty: It has been a duel between you and me, Mr. Holmes. You hope to place me in the dock. I tell you that I will never stand in the dock. You hope to beat me. I tell you that you will never beat me. If you are clever enough to bring destruction upon me, rest assured that I shall do as much to you.’
    Holmes: ‘You have paid me several compliments, Mr. Moriarty,’ said I. ‘Let me pay you one in return when I say that if I were assured of the former eventuality I would, in the interests of the public, cheerfully accept the latter.’

    That’s when you know it’s serious. The power of commitmentment is a powerful concept in the theory of deterrence. “Precommitment is a strategy in which a party to a conflict uses a commitment device to strengthen its position by cutting off some of its options to make its threats more credible. … For instance, an army can burn a bridge behind it, making retreat evidently impossible. A famous example of this tactic is when Hernán Cortés had his men scuttle the ships in order to eliminate any means of desertion. Alternatively, in the context of the Cold War, fail-deadly retaliation systems such as the Soviet Dead Hand make a response to a sudden attack automatic, regardless of whether or not anyone is left alive to make decisions.”

    Supporting Trump is equivalent to burning the bridges. There’s no way back. It remains to be seen whether the Republicans or the Democrats, whose response so far has been a day late and a dollar short, can call and up the ante. The establishment, unlike the voters, is risk-averse. They are too used to gambling with other people’s money to go for broke. They are more likely to offer the appearance of reform rather than its painful reality and hope smoke and mirrors suffice to halt the blaze.

    The two threats to Hillary’s planned defense are that her radical shift to the Left to beat off Sanders will now hamper her ability to steer hard a-starboard to meet the threat of the angry white voter. Having twisted her policies like a pretzel to mollify the followers of Sanders it will hardly be easy for her to pander to the supporters of Trump. Like a World War 2 battleship trying to comb the tracks of torpedoes, the good ship Hillary may find itself dodging one spread only to run into another.

    The second threat to Hillary is the significant probability that some major foreign policy or economic catastrophe will strike before election day thereby ruining her carefully crafted messaging. In the words of Fred Hiatt says in his Washington Post article: everything went south for the administration because the world failed to cooperate with Obama.

    Foot soldiers of misery, they tumble out of buses and their first request is not for water, food or diapers. They have been on the move for weeks, in some cases months, and they need to connect — with relatives they’ve left behind and may never see again, with comrades who can relay rumors on the dangers of the road ahead.
    They are escaping the wreckage of entire countries. A million have washed into Europe in the past year, and another million are on the threshold. The continent’s leaders see the mass migration as their starkest test since World War II. Far-right xenophobic parties are on the rise. Longtime commitments to free speech, tolerance and open borders are eroding. Many of the leaders despair at the absence of U.S. leadership and the rise of Russian meddling. …

    President Obama acted as though pulling back from the arc of conflict would end the conflict. “The tide of war is receding,” he proclaimed as he announced the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq. Again the world failed to cooperate.

    Given, as John Bosco writes in Real Clear Politics, that “Obama needs a JFK moment in East Asia” to beat back China. Given, as the Atlantic Council writes, that NATO is wilting under a “perfect storm” then clearly it is not safe to count on the world cooperating with Hillary any more than it assisted Obama.

    Hillary can circle her wagons, but the world will no longer ride to her rescue. It may no longer be possible to steer a course between the irate domestic voters and the crony lobbies and foreign enemies. In their own way even the administration has admitted this. Their goal is no longer to “build a world without nuclear weapons” or establish a “rule based international order” nor even “Hope and Change”. Its goals like those of the refugees become far more basic. All the party in Washington wants to do now is survive.

    The real problem with Hillary’s strategy of circling the wagons is the implicit assumption that if she can make it to 2016 things will somehow get better. They won’t. In a manner of speaking the current political challenge is providential because it provides a chance for the American political system to adapt within the context of a democratic system. If the political system cannot call forth the men who can meet the challenge now then what hope can there be of finding people with the mettle to face actual enemies later?

    Everyone must have guessed the day would eventually come when it wouldn’t be enough to kick the can down the road and wait for the cavalry to arrive. Maybe that day is here.

    For me it all boils down to this: Trump is a gamble. The establishment is a certainty.

    The establishment will destroy this nation. That is a fact.

    Trump may save it, provided it is not to late. That is the gamble.

    By the way, this is not just the way I feel.

    My friend, the clairvoyant, sees it the exact same way.

    I ran into a young lady who wants Bernie, but will not go to the polls to vote for him.

    But if Trump is the Republican nominee, then she will go to the polls and vote against him.

    She admitted the reasons she would do this because Donald is not nice.

    In other words it is a matter of style–NOT SUBSTANCE.

    Would it matter to you if he gave you a better future, even though he is not nice?

    Would it matter to you if someone who was nice, condemned you to a negative future?

    Echo answereth not. Neither did she.

    This is the same drivel I got from another young woman eight years ago.

    She said she did not want Hillary because Obama was so full of hope.

    Like the show title: Just shoot me.

  17. Update III: Trump wins Virginia (Fox News call, waiting on others). Hillary wins Arkansas.

    —————————————–

  18. I work at the high school where the Democratic caucus is held in my city (Minnesota) so I stayed after school to observe the caucus tonight. We have two colleges in my town and the place was overrun by college students showing up to vote for Sanders. Just a huge crowd of young folk–they far outnumbered older people in the crowd. I don’t know if that’s an indication for my state but last poll I saw Hillary and Sanders were neck and neck here.

  19. Rubio is going to say to his GOP puppeteers that he’s still got a fighting chance having managed to get 31% voters even though he didn’t win the state.

  20. Ted Cruz barely ahead in Oklahoma with 17% of the vote in. Cruz 31.7, Trump 31.5.

    CNN comes in and calls Virginia for Trump.

  21. There is an outfit called The Palm Beach investment group who has a wire into the sanctor sanctorium of the Republican establishment. They claim that Ryan and Obama have cut a deal to reduce social security, starting with the COLA and it will take effect after the presidential elections. They did the same thing with union pensions a year ago. In some cases they were cut in half. And this was done with the approval of Obama and the two congressional delegations. George Miller (you know him Shadow) a Pelosi lieutenant since retired and some nobody on the republican side from Minnesota did the dirty deal in the dead of the night. I got wind of this from two Teamster leaders when I was down there 9 months ago and sure as hell that happened. The other thing to realize is that in 1960 the Warren Court ruled that social security is not an entitlement even though people pay into it during their working life with the expectation that it will be there for them when they retire same with medicare. The other thing that is happening is money is being stolen from medicare to fund Obamacare and the illegals, which creates an inter generational transfer of wealth from citizens to non citizens. This is why I say the establishment will destroy this nation whereas Trump is a gamble, if it is not too late. My frustration is I do not know how to get black people and young people to realize that their future is being stolen right from under their noses, and older people will have nothing left.

  22. OK..very evangelical. ..Cruz by 2% over Trump now.
    What’s with bernie the commie, ahead of Hillary there?

  23. Very strange, tonight I am hearing the USA chant in the background during both Bernie’s and Hillary’s speeches. And it sounded identical. And phony.

  24. Trumps victory in Virginia is like taking the enemy flag. Virginia is ground zero of the establishment. If history repeats itself in the general election then its say good night johnnie.

  25. Wbb,

    Your making me more anxious..I freaking hate Ryan…I freaking hate these politician’s and the, stupidity of the American people.

    Sound bites all day long.

  26. Update IV: Cruz wins Texas. Cruz and Trump in tight race in Oklahoma too. Hillary joined Bernie Sanders with a victory speech. At the same time Marco Rubio gave his “victory” speech even as he loses everywhere. Cruz likely stays in the race now and Marco Rubio will never leave the race even if his heels snap off. Trump smiles.

    —————————————-

  27. Robio giving his speech, starting every sentence “When I am President”…says it over and over again…his two daughters standing behind him look they are ready to cry

    (they must be thinking ‘Dad, you are losing…give it up…you sound silly’

  28. Cruz and Sanders gaining in Oklahoma with almost 50% of the vote in. Cruz ahead by 4%, Sanders ahead by 10%. Fox News calls OK for Sanders.

  29. Th OK results for Sanders in OK are just weird…weird. Now with the huugggh Evangelical vote in Bible Country, I unfortunately see Cruz. …but Bernie the rapist?

  30. Update V: Yay!!! We get our shocker. @BernieSanders and @TedCruz win Oklahoma.



    Does Oklahoma have a meth problem?

  31. Wow, Rubio closed with some Spanish and called Trump a Con Artist.

    I want Trump to literally kick his ass!

  32. Gingrich: ‘Trump will tower over all of them’

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Republican front-runner Donald Trump will “tower over” his rivals all across the country on Super Tuesday.

    Gingrich said Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who is expected to win his home state, has a chance to emerge as the most likely alternative to Trump and win more delegates than Florida Sen. Marco Rubio on Tuesday.
    “But Trump will tower over all of them,” Gingrich told Fox News on Tuesday. “The scale of his victories from Massachusetts and Vermont all the way across to Alaska is gonna be pretty stunning and, really for a guy who’s only been in politics for seven months, almost unimaginable.”

    Gingrich said there will be a frenzy among the Republican establishment to stop the billionaire from winning the nomination. “I don’t think the frenzy will work, and if it doesn’t, then both Trump and the Republican leadership — the traditional leadership — face a big decision.”

    Republicans can take this campaign down the Barry Goldwater path and “get beaten badly,” Gingrich posited, or be like Ronald Reagan and “win a stunning victory.”
    “There’s no middle ground here, and I think Trump is about half of that decision,” Gingrich said. “The other half of that decision is gonna be the Republican leadership.”

    Gingrich stopped short of endorsing Trump — despite calling him “very, very impressive” — but described the businessman as an “anti-left, anti-politically correct, anti-stupidity American nationalist” who uses those principles to guide his decisions. “Sometimes that makes him complicated for conservatives because they have these cookie-cutter you-are-for-this-you’re-for-that, and I think I have pretty good credentials as a conservative,” he said.

    No, its not that.

    What they are is a poor man’s version of Texas.

    Texas went for their native son Ted.

    Therefore Oklahoma was constrained to do likewise.

  34. They are saying that the choice the GOP Establishment has between Trump and Cruz is like poisoning themselves or shooting themselves. Isn’t that the choice they have been giving us for the last 20 or 30 years?

    OK does have Hugh Indian population. ..would be interesting to see. They also have huge etoh/drug problems.

  37. Lu4PUMA, Trump is announcing his victories. 🙂 🙂 Trump has grabbed all the TV time too. Coincidental?

  38. Jb, he just gave an hour speech right before that.

    Maybe he was disappointed in Texas…maybe because he’s 69?

  39. Lu thought different jb, you are a Hillary fan, so maybe it was looking at it from that perspective.

  40. I turned the tv on, and Trump’s press conference was just ending. Looks like FL governor may have endorsed….?

  41. Ted Cruz victory speech on after Trump commandeered 40 minutes of air time on every news channel.

    It’s possible that after every speech given by Ted Cruz he loses more votes than he gains.

  42. I can hear it now, “when I’m president of this one state, of the United States” …blah blah blah…

  43. Cruz begging Rubio, Carson, Kasich, to get out of his way. “That is the only way to beat Donald Trump.” Delusions of grandeur define Cruz.

    I had just typed in the same thing and got tossed out to log back in…is it punishment for supporting Hillary 😉

    (Kidding)

  45. gonzotx, I have deep feelings for Hillary but as you know have been very disappointed in her support of Obama and her treatment of Israel. I am not committed to voting for her or Trump yet. If/when they get their parties nomination(and it has been suggested here that she may not), we will see how it plays out.

  46. I agree, JB, I thought Trump sounded flat as well in his victory speech. Cruz is contrasting his stance with Donald Trump and Rubio.

  47. Nobody’s watching Cruz it’s 930 central…lol

    Jb,

    I know, but my deep feelings turned to anger at her sell out. Been there, done that.

  48. I understand how you feel gonzotx. I vowed never to vote for another democrat after 08 and so far have kept my pledge. I do, however, want to see Sanders defeated.

  49. Shadowfax, the machines own us, we don’t own the machines. We’ve been flung off the website too. Hopefully this weekend we can get the hamsters to finally fix the front page and get the kinks that have seeped in out of the system.

  50. WCCO in Minneapolis with 15% of precincts reporting: Sanders 59% Hillary 41% Rubio 37% Cruz 27% Trump 20%

  51. Oklahoma, now Vermont! 🙂 🙂 Look at who’s gaining against Trump in Vermont: Kasich!

    With 72% of the vote in Kasich is at 31, Trump at 32%.

  52. Donald projected to win Arkansas

    put another one in his corner

    ***************************

    Donald’s speech was meant to be more subdued…gearing it towards uniting the party and heading into the national

    **************

    even Fox, inc MK, was impressed…

  53. Phone is definitely had better days…
    Trying to clip board an article on Drudge….Virginia has almost doubled it’s Republican vote totals, which by the way I thought Trump won but Kasich is extremely close and a lot of votes out…hmmm, that ended a long time ago..hmmm.
    Anyway, it is all about Trump…The new American party, my words.

  54. In Alabama, Trump is in mid 40s. Cruz barely at 20% and Rubio below 20%. There is a 20% threshold to get delegates. 53% of the vote in. Trump might sweep.

  55. Minnesota is the most messed up state ever. Extremely. Extremely left wing..

    Large large Somalia population. ..

  56. Gonzotx, interesting. So I guess that would make sense with Sanders being in the lead and the other totals kind of follow the pattern of less and less left wing, which leaves Trump at the bottom.

    Help me out here folks… why would Trump be doing so poorly in Minnesota?
    ———
    AmericanGal would know better than I would, but my impression as an outsider is that Minnesota is a solid democrat state, even though they have had republican senators like Norm Coleman they do not last and is successor is more of a joke than a comedian and more of a comedian than a senator. It is the stronghold of the old Farm Labor Party and is socialist in its leanings, which means it would not be receptive to a New York billionaire. Many there probably see his as too abrasive. And, I read on a blog tonight he spent no time there campaigning.

  58. Update VI: Trump wins Arkansas. Kasich moving in on Trump in Vermont. Sanders ahead of Hillary in Colorado. Rubio clicks his heels, like Dorothy, to win Minnesota.

    Some of you already answered–we are very liberal here overall. Also, in my experience as a life long Minnesotan the Republicans here are more conservative–pro life etc is important to them. The Republicans I know don’t think that Trump is conservative enough.

    super, although I doubt he has much interest in impressing MK. If she comes across that way she may be realizing that her tough guy approach to him is contrary to her interest, given the fact that he is the likely nominee. If she has any sense, she will be looking for a way off the limb she has been on, before it breaks under her feet, and sends her hurdling to terra firma below. She thinks she can walk on water and fly, but this has not been proven, therefore I must remain skeptical.

  61. Have to say, the comments on Ace, which is really pushing Cruz non stop, liked Trumps speech, alot.
    More positive comments on Trump than usual…

    Hate Rubio as much as us!

  62. Rubio fighting it out with Jake Tapper on CNN. Tapper says “you haven’t won”. Rubio says “the terrain is better for us now.” Rubio says he will now “catch fire”. We suspect he’s just going to get burned.

  63. That Vermont count is ridiculous. Literally like 50,000 votes, 4h hours later, the fix is in, hope Trump has hands in the count

  64. Rubio says he will now “catch fire”
    I wonder if he means the “prairie fire” you’ve mentoned Admin 🙂

  65. A portion of Rubio’s script I have managed to obtain.

    The pereoration looks vaguely familiar, Churchillian even, and he has memorized it well so he can repeat it seventy times in response to every question on every subject from now until dooms day:

    I shall do the bidding of my donors (kissie kissie),

    Whatever the cost to the American People may be,

    I shall fight Trump on the beaches (South Beach at Don Shula’s over a bottle of Stags Leap)

    I shall fight Trump at Miami at the rallies he golds on the Jailai field

    I shall fight him on the streets of Calle Ocho

    And remind one and all that I won Minnesota

    And I will never surrender

    (Until I lose Florida, and my sugar daddy puts his wallet away)

    Note: big media calls this one of the greatest speeches since Lincoln’s address at Gettysburg, and Obama’s Arab spring speech which brought lasting peace to the middle east and his speech on race relations which was designed to take the subject off of his radical racist spiritual adviser/

  66. But Admin, who wants Rubio to be theirs?

    Minnesota with its hugh Somalia population and left wing, Farrr left wing idiots.
    I have never been hit on like I was hit on by Somalia men, it was unreal.

  67. Update VII: Bernie Sanders wins Colorado caucuses. Bernie Sanders wins Minnesota caucuses. Money saves the socialist! Sanders survives SuperTuesday. Marco Rubio clicked his heels and won Minnesota. Even when he doesn’t win, Trump wins. Cruz, Kasich, Carson, and Cruz will stay in and keep the field divided as Hillary can’t scrape the Sanders off her shoes.

    —————————————

  68. Hillary did well, but definitely not a knock out as some had hoped. Wolf Blitzer embarrassingly plugging Sanders wins.

  69. Shadowfax, it is going to end 7-5(Bernie will win Alaska) . Hillary needs some big wins in Florida, Ohio, Michigan, etc…It is disconcerting that a no name socialist is doing so well in the democratic party.

  70. CNN favors Bernie.

    Wolf saying that Hillary did well winning 7 states.

    And Bernie is doing well too, he won 4 states.

    WTF, the size of the states won and the # of delegates isn’t anywhere near equal.

  71. Update: Hillary Clinton wins Massachusetts. Donald J. Trump wins Vermont. Only state left is Alaska. Little polling in that hard to poll Alaska. Sarah Palin might help Trump there. Does Bernie Sanders have a shot to make it 5? Our congrats to Kasich for the surprise almost win.

    ———-
    Agreed that Hillary needs to keep steamrolling. Bernie not only has the socialist view, he has false promises of pink ponies to the young, which Berry did too. I think that Hillary’s largest flaw still lays in the caucus states. She needs to get a plan to help and support those states more. Especially the large states.

    Hillary’s real big win is the delegate count along with a massive amount of superdelegates.

  73. I don’t trust the superdelegates and why hasn’t her campaigned learned from 08 how to caucus? Anyway, goodnight to all!!!

  74. Once again Trump wins Vermont…they didn’t put down projected winner, but, lol, apparent winner…

  75. A poll I saw on Bing predicts Trump to win Alaska with 44.5%. Have no idea how reliable that may be.

  76. Well, I reckon the big population centers up there will determine the vote, i.e. Anchorage, Juneau, Ketchikan.

  77. The moment Tuesday night when Karl Rove said the race was “tightening” in Virginia only to be interrupted by reality:

  78. Admin: I smell a rat–a big rat on this one:

    Colorado Republicans cancel presidential vote at 2016 caucus
    Move makes Colorado only state to date to opt out of early nomination process

    Colorado will not vote for a Republican candidate for president at its 2016 caucus after party leaders approved a little-noticed shift that may diminish the state’s clout in the most open nomination contest in the modern era.

    The GOP executive committee has voted to cancel the traditional presidential preference poll after the national party changed its rules to require a state’s delegates to support the candidate that wins the caucus vote.

    The move makes Colorado the only state so far to forfeit a role in the early nomination process, according to political experts, but other caucus states are still considering how to adapt to the new rule.

    “It takes Colorado completely off the map” in the primary season, said Ryan Call, a former state GOP chairman.

    Republicans still will hold precinct caucus meetings in early 2016 to begin the process of selecting delegates for the national convention — but the 37 delegates are not pledged to any specific candidate.

    The Democratic Party still will hold a presidential straw poll March 1 — a Super Tuesday vote in a key swing state that is attracting attention from top-tier candidates.

    For Republicans, no declared winner means the caucus will lack much of its hype. The presidential campaigns still may try to win delegate slots for their supporters, but experts say the move makes it less likely that candidates will visit Colorado to court voters.

    The Colorado system often favors anti-establishment candidates who draw a dedicated following among activists — as evidenced by Rick Santorum’s victory in 2012 caucus. So the party’s move may hurt GOP contenders such as Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Rand Paul, who would have received a boost if they won the state.

    State Republican Party Chairman Steve House said the party’s 24-member executive committee made the unanimous decision Friday — six members were absent — to skip the preference poll.

    The move, he said, would give Colorado delegates the freedom to support any candidate eligible at the Cleveland convention in July. Republican National Committee officials confirmed that the change complies with party rules.

    Rubio says he will now “catch fire”

    ———-
    Liar, liar pants on fire…

    Must have been what he meant.

  80. So…. CO is totally moving away from reflecting voter preferences? Is that what this means? At least in other contests, the delegates represent the voters’ wishes on the first convention vote, only free if it goes to a second. Now, they can just vote for whomever each individual delegate wants, having nothing to do with the voters….?

  81. he move, he said, would give Colorado delegates the freedom to support any candidate eligible at the Cleveland convention in July. Republican National Committee officials confirmed that the change complies with party rules.
    ———
    Now there is a lying cocksucker.

    He denies voters the chance to decide who they want as the nominee.

    Instead, he wants party officials to have the “freedom” to support anyone they want at the convention.

    And this was a unanimous decision of their executive committee?

    The voters need to fire the whole lot of them at the polls.

    It not the freedom of these apparatchiks to ignore voters, its the freedom of voters to decide who the nominee will be that should be the priority here.

    Notice how this benefits the establishment and screws Trump.

  82. And when this asshole says this is consistent with the RNC rules, the question I have is when was that rule passed that the powers that be could cancel the primary, deprive the voters of their opportunity to select the nominee, and let the party hacks decide who to support? You can be pretty damned sure this was not the original rule, but it was changed this way by Romney. There was an awful lot Romney did to change the rules, to take power away from the people and to insulate the establishment against insurgent campaigns. Like the democrats, they decided that they would accelerate the globalist agenda, knew their would be push back, and they wanted to make sure that resistance was futile. Bear in mind, prior to 1968 party hacks determined the candidate with no voter input. That changed as a result of the riots which took place in the democrat convention which resulted in new rules drafted by McGovern to allow democracy in the selection process, while reserving a significant degree of establishment control through these superdelegates. In 1972, the Republicans followed suit and made their process even more democratic by having far less superdelegates. Now, as you can see, the party is moving the other way.

    It’s a caucus again,
    —–
    I did not know that, but I should have. If I had known I would have gone up there and seen if I could help. Unfortunately the people I knew are long since dead or retired. The former mayor of Junea–Jim McClean was my neighbor but he died last year. He was with General Bruckner in World War II, whose dad was a Confederate general from Kentucky in the American Civil War. Jim was proud of the fact that he voted against statehood.

  84. Another win, (if you can call it that) for Hillary,

    American Samoa

    Hillary Clinton 68.4%
    Bernie Sanders 25.7%
    All Others 5.9%

  85. The deciding factor for Cruz? He has the backing of oil money and Alaska is a big oil state. That must be what is going on. And Sarah took on those old boy oil interests, so she may not be able to help there as much as we hoped.

  86. If Cruz wins then the emerging pattern, other than being a native son seems to be that he is strongest in states where oil predominates, and his donors are big oil interests.

  87. Minnesota, total left wing, Hubert Humphrey territory. Minn one of the few states that went to the Peanut Farmer in Reagans 1980 sweep.

    I am not surprised.

  88. Cruz wife gave all those oil loans to oil business from Goldmans…those loans going bad…payback!

  89. I had dream and all the frequent posters were in this apartment, it was Admins, for some reason we didn’t know and it was late and we were sleeping on the living room floor…I head some fast typing, how old is that, and it was Admin typing away, I called his, yes his, name Admin, and he turned around and acknowledged me. We talked for a few minutes then woke everyone up.It was near Christmas and the streets were blanketed with snow, but also ice, and he lived on a very hilly road. I had a car that was a old convertible, which my husband had given me the keys, never saw it before, and I didn’t ask him any questions, apparently happened prior to the “meeting”…lol..well shadow and a couple, who it turns out she didn’t know ask me for a ride home. The couple take off playing in the snow while I’m figuring how to raise the roof up. Shadow is in the back rolling around while I Drive And Clearly Losing Control in The Ice Covered Rolling road. Well it just goes on but it was interesting for sure.

  90. Well Super Tuesday has been an interesting show. I think there was a lot of ballot box stuffing going on. One always has to question the validity of these shows. Trump still Towers.

  91. Now the delegate math gets tricky. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/03/01/upshot/super-tuesday-live-republican-delegate-estimates.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Fupshot&action=click&contentCollection=upshot&region=rank&module=package&version=highlights&contentPlacement=1&pgtype=sectionfront&_r=0
    Cruz won the delegate fight last night in the states voting yesterday. And exceeded expectations. Trump needs to start rethinking his strategy of no ads. That is killing him. The RNC will not be happy with Cruz. So the RNC will go after him next. Rubio lost, Cruz won (catching up in delegates and expectations) and Trump took a draw. On to the 15th.

  92. Wisconsin will not go Trump. Walker hates him and it’s very liberal, not as cray cray as Minnesota.
    Ohio is lost, favorite son.
    Pennsylvania, always lots of cheating, probably cross over votes to deny Tump.
    Florida, hoping Trump keeps his lead.
    North Carolina…hmmm

    That is exactly the concern–the delegate math.

    And behind the big media headlines Trump towers, there lingers that little truth.

    And those fuckers, i.e. big media know it, but are not talking about it NOW

    Because they will use it later for a comeback kid scenario, then a brokered convention

    Which, if it continues, will give the establishment a colorable justification to treat it as such

    I do not see Ted and Donald burying the hatchet, except perhaps in eachothers back

    I have seen fake animus, and I have seen the real thing.

    This is the real thing.

    The insurgent movement must speak with a unified voice.

    Otherwise the establishment will play the game of divide and conquer.

    In which case the globalist agenda will proceed unimpeded.

  94. give it to HP headline Rubi-NO!
    ***************************************

    wbb…of course agree MK is no friend to DT…however she did have to concede DT’s Presidential demeanor…

    **************************************

    these sudden ‘repubs’ that say they will support Hillary before Trump are protecting their own interests…the donor class and wall st…

    sad to say, Hillary will not make changes in that area and they know they can count on her over Trump…and she will not have the strength to “negotiate” fair trade deals or build a wall or stop illegal immigration

    already there is news out there that O is pushing for more refugees to come to the USA

    Hillary is riding on O’s coattails…

    she looks beautiful, but I found her speech last night depressing

    *********************************

    now the goal post has moved to “well, DT has not hit 50% yet”

    **********************

    after he does that it will be ‘he has not met 75%’

    *********************************************

    smartest thing DT can do is throw the elite repub off base by being his unpredicable self and exuding how Presidential he is…

    **********************************

    my bet…Florida Governor Scott’s endorsement will be coming soon and at the right moment…

  95. Donald did good, not great, but very good.

    Rubio slippers, the sweaty one, got the great state of Somalia. ..
    Cruz, better than expectations which means we are destined to hear Glenn Beck, who clearly has emotional issues, drone on and on..I do not listen to him. Actually rare I listen to any of them.
    Rush will push Cruz as will Levin. Interstitial after that article how they have all sold out.

  96. also Howard Fineman talking about the RNC behind the scene machinations to oust DT…saying he has spoken to the DT people and they are preparing, lawyers and all, for a full out fight if it comes to the RNC trying to deny him the nomination…

    DT will not take the tack Hillary did…he will blow up the republican party and start his own ‘Revolution Party’ if need be

    it is so fascinating to see how DT operates and manuevers…he is in a league of his own…

    *********************

    evidently Chris Matthews had it out with Tom Delay last night on how the RNC would try to steal the nomination from DT and give the finger to the voters…

    I missed it and could not find it, if anyone comes across that segment please post…would love to see that ‘discussion’

  97. More on the problem referred to above.

    More on why he must buy some big advertising.

    Its like expert witnesses in a courtroom.

    You need an expert to refute an expert.

    Otherwise the lies they hit you with go unanswered.

    The challenge here is not to win–

    Its to win with a majority of the delegates

    To deter the shenanigans which the establishment has planned for the convention

    Trump must seize the agenda

    This is from Hot Air this morning:

    ———

    Right now, Trump has slightly less than half of all delegates bound, with his 315 stacked up against 349 of all other rivals combined. If both Cruz and Rubio can win some winner-take-all states and keep pace with Trump in proportionally allocated states, there is a good chance that no one comes into the convention with enough delegates on the first ballot to win the nomination — at which point Rubio might get his wish about pushing the “con man” off the ticket, although it may not mean he’d be at the top of it. Even that strategy depends on Rubio winning Florida, though, so expect to see a dogfight there — and don’t expect Rubio to change his strategy from the past week one iota, either

  98. It’s the delegates, stupid.
    90 delegates separate Trump from Cruz. This is designed for a brokered convention. The GOP will pay for all to stay in the race and cipher delegates.

  99. Whether you are for Trump or Hillary, the road to the nomination is not going to be easy. Hillary, on the surface, has the easier path, but to many inknown factors still at hand(FBI, Obama, Delegate loyalty). Trump will face enormous opposition and possibly a unified GOP against him if Cruz piks up a few more wins. The Trump card fro him is the threat to go solo…

    PS-I like Sarah Palin, but her endorsements don’t work out that well.

  100. gonzotx

    That was quite a dream.

    Admin is a ‘he’, I have often wondered about that myself, the fashion suits of Bowie….and you were going to take me home, and I rolled around in your backseat.

    Maybe we get along better in your dreams 😉

  101. Romney to give a “major speech” tomorrow on the election
    supposedly says he is not getting into the race

  102. correction: carson sees NO pathway to the Presidency…

    guess we will hear the word ‘suspends’ soon

  103. ADMIN: THERE WAS MASSIVE ELECTION FRAUD IN TEXAS—PEOPLE VOTING FOR TRUMP AND SEEING THEIR VOTES SWITCHED AUTOMATICALLY BY THE MACHINES, CALLS INTO THE RADIO NETWORKS ALL REPORTING THE SAME STORY, CALLS IN TO ELECTION JUDGES ALL OF IT TOO LATE. NOW, IT IS STARTING UP IN OHIO AND ROVE IS SMIRKING ABOUT IT. TRUMP HAS PULLED AHEAD OF KASICH AND NOW THEY ARE RAMPING UP THE CHEATING. TRUMP HAS DISPATCHED ONE OR MORE TECHNICIANS WHO ARE EXPERTS IN DETECTING THIS KIND OF MECHANIZED FRAUD, AND AT THE SAME TIME BIG MEDIA IS PITCHING THE RACIST THEME AGAINST TRUMP IN ERNEST. YESTERDAY AT THE “PRESS CONFERENCE” THAT WAS ALL THE MEDIA WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT WAS DAVID DUKE–THEY ARE TRYING LIKE HELL WITH ESTABLISHMENT SUPPORT TO LABEL TRUMP A RACIST KNOWING THAT THERE ARE PLENTY OF RUBES AND USEFUL IDIOTS WHO WILL BUY INTO THAT LIE OUT THERE IN THE ELECTORATE. THE HATE FILLED VAN JONES WAS ON MSNBC SCREAMING RACIST AND DAMNED NEAR ATTACKED THE TRUMP DEFENDER–CNN NEEDS TO BAN THAT HATE MONGER. SOMEONE, MAYBE FRANKLIN GRAHAM OR JERRY FALWELL JR. WHO ARE RELIGIOUS LEADERS NEED TO CALL OUT KARL ROVE AND FOX NEWS ON VOTER FRAUD AGENDA, SINCE THEY ARE THE ONES ORCHESTRATING IT. IF TRUMP DOES IT HIMSELF THEY WILL CALL IT SOUR GRAPES, BUT IT IS HAPPENING SURE AS THE EARTH TURNS. THE WHOLE IDEA HERE IS TO KNOCK OUT THE ONE VOICE WHO SPEAKS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND AGAINST THE GLOBALISTS. EVEN TED IS PART OF THE CABAL, AND YOU SEE WHERE LINDAY GRAHAM IS NOW TELLING EVERYONE TO SUPPORT HIM, EVEN THOUGH HE IS PREVIOUSLY ON RECORD LOATHING AND CONDEMNING HIM. I HAVE NOT LISTENED TO TED’S SPEECH BUT I AM TOLD IT IS FILLED WITH ENDLESS LIES ABOUT TRUMP. THE ESTABLISMENT IS DETERMINED TO SNUFF OUT OUR VOICE AND WE HAD BETTER TELL THE RUBES WE KNOW WHAT THE STAKES ARE BECAUSE MOST OF THEM ARE UTTERLY CLUELESS, AND DO NOT WANT TO BELIEVE THE LEADERSHIP OF THIS COUNTRY IS THIS CORRUPT. ROGER STONE HAS PROVIDED SOME INPUT ON THAT IS GOING ON WITH THE CHEATING AND IF YOU WANT TO LISTEN GO TO THE 9 MINUTE MARK, ETC.

  104. I am still wondering what Donald’s options are if the traitors in the repub party try to block him and succeed…

    at that point I say to DT…take all your voters and appeal to the rebels in Bernie’s camp and run on your own…

    my only question still is…will his name be on the ballot…or is his only option a write in…

    *******************

    if for nothing else these stupid elite repubs must realize they will be giving away the Supreme Court … what idiots…

  105. Romney, the Al Gore Of the republican party, has a lot of nerve trying to derail Trump who is actually winning more votes and delegates than Romney had at this time..and liek him or not, Trump will not wilt like Romney did against Obama.

  106. wbb…CNN won’t ban Van Jones…they had Van Jones and Jeff Lord on this morning and Van Jones was hyperventialating and would barely let Jeff speak…

    what makes it worse…Allison Camerota and Chris Cuomo and Van Jones TRIPLED tagged Jeff and barely let him answer him a sentence with constant interruptions…

    Jeff, to his credit, stayed calm and did his best…but the deck was stacked against him

    these freaking people make me ill

  107. I have said that Jeffrey Lord is very cool under pressure. They gave him a nice haircut and he comes off very well…The panel is very skewed with the fromer Cruz advisor, the mainstream Republican guy, Van Jones, Borger, Gergan, and the Hisapnic woman who early on was for Bush. The worst of them all is Marc Lamont.

  108. I, don’t think Carson out benefits, Trump. People vote for him for his mild manner besides his message, which is muddled. Last night he said he wouldn’t drop, wanted to be a voice for his people.
    Guess the money man had another idea, time to change your clothes.

  109. Romney is so desperate to be relevant.

    Go home, put on your Mormon underwear and go home to your beautiful wife!

  110. Carson out benefits, Trump. (snip)
    Last night he said he wouldn’t drop, wanted to be a voice for his people.

    Carson wanted to be a voice for his people? Of which people was he speaking?

    The article I posted above is a theory, suggests that Christie has been on Team Trump since the beginning, that’s why he dropped out immediately after taking Rubio down in that debate. Some feel that Carson may be on the Trump team, too. That all these “gotcha” moments are events that Trump has planned for, and he lets them simmer a bit (then he shows what he’s got, and they look like a fool).

    For example with the KKK thing, Trump disavowed him on tape last fall. But this duststorm with Trump not immediately bringing that up, allowed others to bring up that Hillary and Obama were tight with Byrd, the former grand wizard of the KKK.

    Anyway, I was looking forward to people’s thoughts on it…
