Trump, Clinton rack up Super Tuesday wins; Cruz, Rubio, Sanders in pursuit

by FoxNews.com  |  published on March 2, 2016

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton racked up a string of Super Tuesday primary victories, pulling well ahead of their rivals in the race for delegates – though their closest competitors, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Bernie Sanders, notched enough wins or close seconds to keep the race alive.

With results still coming in, Trump is projected to win in Alabama, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee and Virginia. Clinton is projected to win Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Cruz, though, is projected to win the Republican primary in his home state of Texas, as well as in Oklahoma.

And on the Democratic side, Sanders was projected to notch a win in his home state of Vermont as well as in Oklahoma.

Texas was the biggest prize on the Super Tuesday map, offering 222 Democratic delegates and 155 Republican delegates. A win for Cruz was considered critical, and he was able to thwart any potential late-hour surge by Trump there.

    It appears that MARKY MARK RUBIO continues to make an ass of himself

  • SABER

    Someone please tell me how Cruz is winning?

    Real totals less 3 yet to be assigned in Tennessee:

    Trump 338
    Cruz 232
    Rubio 113
    Kasich 27
    Carson 8

    The network reports are incomplete (some of them). I have gone to several places including the sites associated with each state in order to get the counts to match the totals. Reading each states’ rules for threshold, ceiling, at-large and districts explain how the numbers were calculated. Some are not perfectly clear, so my numbers above may not be perfect, but very close. Politico, CNN and other places do not have all delegates assigned. Real Clear Politics has a table and it too is not complete and there are some minor errors. I have a spreadsheet to track actuals and predict future races based upon polling and states rules. Predictions can be very accurate if conservative estimates are used along with polling numbers. For instance if a race shows Trump 35, Cruz 30, Rubio 25, Kasich 10, Carson 7 and a state has a threshold of 20%, it is relatively safe to assume that only the top three will receive At-Large delegates. Districts are different, there may be some districts where Kasich will exceed the 20% threshold and get a piece of the pie. It is number crunching and comparing to what is reported. For the most part, complete races reported are accurate, but incomplete races reported can be extrapolated using actuals and rules.

  • Whoever God wants will win.
    We’ll get who we deserve. This country has turned their backs on God, immorality is rampant, abortion is the most sinful, most offensive of all sins for these are God’s children, made in God’s image. God’s patience only goes so far, He’ll give us what we deserve.

  • Robert Early

    Scott Rigell and Ben Sasse reject the will of their own voters. These two RINOs are on their way out. I expect to witness the political deaths of many RINOs in the coming months. They have ignored the will of the people far too long.

    “If we nominated Donald Trump,” Senator Marco Rubio, a presidential candidate from Florida, said Tuesday on CNN, “it will be the end of the modern Republican Party. ….”

    That is exactly what we want, “Rubot”!

    • TAM44

      That’s what this Cuban BOY rubio does not understand, there’s not a dimes worth of difference in the parties right now. They have both let obama run rough shod over the American citizens and without any repercussion what so ever. marco rubio who I call chucky schumer’s little butt kisser is a disgrace, and needs to grow up.

  • Seedman

    It looks like Don Juvenile’s adopted pet, Christie expects a handout, tongue out and saliva dripping.

  • ssd

    Business as usual, following in Obumma’s footsteps. Why don’t the American people wake up, it is another Obumma campaign all over again!!! Americans do not learn from their history. What a shame.

  • Debbie

    The Voters have spoken. Washington Live with it. Had you listened to the people things might be different, but you didn’t. The People will rise again and we will be heard.

  • Karrol Spence

    Even now Rubio is a rhino. He is only staying in to take votes from Cruz. The establishment wants Trump to win and no one seems to understand it. By the time he drops out Trump wins and its business as usual.

    • JohnnyHiott

      You, Karrol Spence are absolutely correct………

    • SABER

      The term is R.I.N.O. not rhino like the animal.
      You don’t even know what that stands for.
      You Cruzbots are nothing but parrots. LOL
      Trump isn’t part of the “establishment”. He is an outsider.
      But Cruz is the insider which makes him part of the establishment if anybody.

      • Peter Smith

        The “establishment” is licking their chops with Trump. He said it himself, “he makes great deals, wonderful deals ………” Trump will be business as usual and even you “Trumpateers” will take in the rear when Trump yells ,,”GOTCHA” in the end. He’s the White Obama, you people are too stupid to see it coming down the tracks at you. I guess you could call it, “deer in the headlights ignorant” when you support Trump.
        And just remember this, Cruz is Tea Party, the establishment on both sides of the aisle dislikes the area Party. Stop being stupid.

        • SABER

          Establishment are those who have an interest in DC…this would be the two Cubans. Both will lose and you would be ignorant not to see that.
          Trump 2016!!

          • Peter Smith

            I guess I would call your asinine statement “saber rattling”. In other words, threatening assertions with nothing but noise. I want to hear your whine little kitty when you idiots elect the White Obama for our country. That liberal Trump is laughing at your ignorance knowing full well that your brain dead until he yells, “GOTCHA dummies!” But then, it’s too late by that time.
            Trump NEVER!

          • SABER

            Cruz and Obama…two peas in a pod. Both love amnesty and both are ineligible. You are both ignorant and asinine. Why would you support NUMBER 2 for president? Number 2 cannot and will not in. Number 2 just needs to be flushed away….and soon enough. Winner-takes-all is coming and Cruz is not leading any of them. Dream on Pete. Go cry on Glenn Becks shoulder. He will encourage you with more lies about Cruz being president. Ha ha
            You lose!
            Trump 2016!!

          • Peter Smith

            Okay dumb-ss, you just lost all rights to any other name. Ted Cruz has voted AGAINST amnesty and has never wavered in his fight against amnesty. Ted Cruz is also a natural born citizen of the United States and is more eligible; morally, constitutionally, intellectually, and common sense than Donald Trump will ever be. Not to mention Trump is a liberal, Cruz is a Conservative. Go ahead and vote for Trump, your ignorance abounds and your liberal ways will destroy what little remains of the America I love.
            There is still a long way to go dumb-ss, we’ll see who loses. Trump and his gay (as in queer) band of Trumpayeers will screech when Conservatives put Cruz as the #1 guy. Donald and his Trumpateers will be nothing more than tits on a mule. Smile dumb-ss, your days will just get worse.

          • SABER

            You sure are hostile. A tell-tale sign that frustration from supporting a loser is getting to you. Cruz is going to be a chronic number 2 as long as he stays in the race. He actually was fourth in Massachusetts yesterday. That’s right 4th place. So where were all of Cruz’s buddies from Harvard? Didn’t they show up? Or maybe they realized that he can’t win?
            In any event, Cruz as a number 2 just proves that number 2 should be flushed, not polished.

          • Peter Smith

            No, it’s from dealing with the same song and dance from every ignorant POS Trumpateer on the board. It’s always the same cause Trump said it’s so. Oh, and dumb-ss, do you really think the delegates for Carson, Rubio, and the rest will side with Trump as they fall by the wayside? Trump, the only liberal on the GOP ticket. The GOP, i.e., theConservative Party? I can just hear the screams a comin’!
            TRUMP ……. NEVER!

          • Peter Smith

            But what you think will become of the delegates earned by other candidates as they drop out of the primary? Trump has managed to offend every other candidate on a regular basis. I don’t think Trump realizes that if doesn’t win in the first ballot, he hasn’t got a snowflakes chance in H-LL of winning the GOP primary. So what then? Run independent, split the Republican votes, and give the election to Hillary or Bernie? Cruz has already announced he will support ANY GOP primary winner, I doubt Trump will do this. Trump is in this thing for Trump, never forget that fact.

          • SABER

            You don’t care about my opinion!?!? But this is what I think of the ineligible Senator!!!

          • Peter Smith

            I don’t know or care about Rubio. You think I trust the liar Trump? The liberal Democrat that has lied to the gullible cretinous Trumpateers? LOL at you morons. Just remember, in the end when Trump is 2nd, second is just the first LOSER!

          • ClarenceDeBarrows

            A lot of ad hominem bluster here on your part, Peter, but one can live with that as it’s emotionally inspired and, as far as the force of such an argument goes, factually irrelevant. What one can’t dismiss in your post, though, is your misstatement, submitted as fact, that Cruz is a natural born Citizen. Neither Cruz nor Rubio nor Jindal nor Obama are, in fact, natural born Citizens as defined in Article II of our Constitution. Your statement that they are belies your ignorance of the facts. If you would like the facts of the matter Google, J.B. Williams The End of the American Presidency. It is a short piece from an individual knowledgeable as to our Constitution and its mandates. Note. I said “our Constitution” not a “living constitution” which reflects the interpretations of that original Constitution by latter day judicial pundits of the, more often than not, Harvard variety.

          • Peter Smith

            I have read Article II, please indicate the location of said definition. The 14th Amendment and court rulings tell me the Ted Cruz is indeed a NBC of the United States. Article II scores zero for definition, just saying ….
            You could also look up NBC interpretations in the book, Black’s Law dictionary. It is the most widely used legal reference in the US.
            That also brings up this point, how can you say ours is not a “living Constitution”? Call me crazy it, the Founders only had the Bill of Rights. You know, 10 Amendments. The last 230+ years have seen some additions. Yep, a “living Constitution”.
            Final point, I don’t care about the others, Ted Cruz is a NBC per our Constitution.

          • Dennis

            Right! When are all these Trump-Slammers” going to accept reality and “GET ON BOARD”? These Trump-Slammers are just helping Hitlery right into the White House! The “GOTCHA” will be coming out of Hitlery’s pie hole, the career criminal that wants BIG Totalitarian GOVERNMENT!
            (I’m not voting for Trump because my Cuban boy didn’t make it) very brutish!

          • SABER

            The reality that Cruz is done is showing. Such vitriol, such anger….get it out now!

        • TAM44

          You’re the stupid one, go look in the mirror SFB.

          • Peter Smith

            Is that the best you’ve got TAM44? I guess that is to be expected from a Trumpateer. No brains and d-mm little imagination. One day, when your all grown up, ask mommy if you can come back and play. Until that day, go pound sand up your -ss.

          • SABER

            Tam44 – Looks like pumpkineater here is going off the deep end. Maybe we should give him a tissue?

    • TAM44

      ted cruz is a liar and he’s also an insider who has got lots of money from wall street, Mr. Trump is his own man and that’s what the rino’s does not like as he cannot be controlled by them like a cruz or rubio or kasich.

      • Peter Smith

        And TAM44 is still an idiot that back up one statement made. Not to mention he can’t post an intelligent or literate reply. Good luck mowing lawns this summer moron.

      • SABER

        Pumpkineater doesn’t like you.

  • lou

    Tump is going to Trump Clinton they’re basically tied in New York any Democrat who loses New York is done

    • Richard Hennessy

      Trump consistently polls better than he gets votes. This is probably because many Trump poll supporters are just wanting to use him to “send a message” and aren’t really going to vote for him. Much easier to do than to really vote for a clown like him. Who really thinks a Republican can carry liberal New York? If he can, it’s because New Yorkers believe he’s liberal enough for them. Is that what conservatives want?

      • lou

        No one agrees with you

      • 1josephg1

        the clown is already in the white house.
