Ted Cruz wins Maine, Donald Trump poised to win Kentucky and Louisiana

March 5, 2016

 Ted Cruz has guaranteed at least a split in today’s contests; the Senator from Texas won Kansas earlier today by a wide margin and now he has won the state of Maine by a margin of about 46-33%. Donald Trump looks to be rebounding as I write this. As of right now it looks as if the billionaire businessman will win Kentucky. With 32% of the votes counted he is holding onto a 12 point lead and this has been consistent all night so I don’t see much changing there.

  The polls in Louisiana have just closed and Donald Trump has jumped out with a big lead, it is way too early to predict a winner but Donald Trump is looking good early on. Speaking of looking good, or should I say not so good, Marco Rubio had a very poor performance in Maine coming off of his third place finish in Kansas–he finished behind John Kasich with 8% of the vote. 

Update: Politico has just called  Louisiana for Donald Trump.

  It is pretty clear that at this point John Kasich and Marco Rubio no longer have any reason to be in this race because there is no path forward for either of them to win the nomination–unless their goal is to play the spoiler…
