Republican Presidential nomination has become a three-person race
Фев 24, 2016, 11:04
This weekend Trump won big in SC, but in order to win like that in Nevada, and show he can win against a Democrat in November, Trump is going to need support from Hispanic voters. In Nevada, younger voters did not show up to caucus for him in numbers that Sanders needed to win. National Review had called it his "firewall".
Republican frontrunner Donald Trump blew out the rest of the remaining GOP field in Tuesday's Nevada caucuses.
The endorsement comes days after Rubio galvanized supporters by placing second behind Donald Trump in the SC primary and after rival Jeb Bush dropped out of the race.
Plan B: Win Nevada after going 0-3 to open the race so that Rubio survives to compete in his home state primary.
Trump was scheduled to hold two rallies in Nevada - one in Elko and later in Las Vegas.
Consider that Gov. Bush, Gov. Kasich and Dr. Carson won 22.7 percent of South Carolina's vote Saturday. And right now, he is leading polling averages in both states - and in almost every single one of the roughly dozen or so states scheduled to have primaries next week on Super Tuesday.
Voters in the fourth contest of the 2016 Republican nomination process are angrier and older than in the prior primaries or caucuses.
"This guy Cruz lies more than any human being I've ever dealt with", Trump said.
"We are not giving back an important naval base to an anti-American, Communist dictatorship,"Rubio said".
So will all his talk of a wall on the border, and his insulting comments about some Mexicans, hurt him or help him with Hispanic voters? Trump's campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Monday that the billionaire businessman has been seeking advice from former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani as he gradually expands his tight inner circle.
There are many evangelicals who can't stand Trump's brashness, Brody notes. Senator Ted Cruz is in third place with 17%. Mr. Rubio was at 21 percent and Sen.
For Rubio, the son of former casino workers who spent six years in Nevada as a child and young teenager, the focus is on securing the support of mainstream Republicans and playing up his ties to the region.
But he insisted he did not think the race would come down to a so-called brokered Republican convention in July - a situation in which none of the candidates has an absolute majority of nominating delegates.
