Donald Trump wins the South Carolina primary

February 20, 2016

 The polls just recently closed but at about 7:30 Politico called the race for Donald Trump and at 7:37 CNN also declared the billionaire businessman the winner in the first in the South primary. At the time of this posting Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are in a tight battle for second place.

  Following up on his big victory in New Hampshire it now appears as if this is Donald Trump’s race to lose and with the anti-Trump vote being split between Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio it would appear as if Donald Trump will skate into the nomination with ease.

  This is a three person race, and has been for some time, and all others should now call it a day. However I doubt Jeb Bush, despite his poor showing, will do so even though Marco Rubio has emerged as the Republican establishment’s preferred candidate.

  The only chance at stopping Donald Trump at this point in time, in my opinion, would be for either Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio to drop out of the race and that is not going to happen. Donald Trump has secured what has been called big victories in New Hampshire and South Carolina but when you look at it he has only won the support of about 35% of the voters in both states so I suppose the term big is relative when you consider the fact that approximately 65% of the people voted for another candidate. But to quote a famous football coach from this area, it is what it is…

  Until and unless this becomes a two person race Donald Trump is not going to be defeated and the Republican party has no one to blame but themselves, I just wish Donald Trump was who he is claiming to be and not the Donald Trump of the past because it pains me to think we will have to choose between two liberals with New York values in the general election, my choice will go elsewhere…

    Jeb suspended his campaign. Expect the daggers from RNC to soon come out against Trump, as Rubio is wearing kneepads.

      I just saw this news as well. It was the right call but I still expected him to hang around. The establishment now has their candidate and we can expect the money to really start flowing in to Rubio now.

        Rubio was purchased. A very poor choice for America.

    Rubio is no Jack Kennedy. Seat belt tightened for a rough ride.

      Rubio would let the car go into the drink, then call for help, hours later.
      If Rubio loses the RNC nod, I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if he went on suicide watch.

        That sounds like another famous Senator that I know… 😉
