The Missouri GOP released a tentative delegate allocation on Wednesday after the state’s Tuesday Republican primary.

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump received 37 delegates, followed by rival Ted Cruz who received 15 delegates, according to a reporter from St. Louis Public Radio.

According to the Associated Press, Trump received 40.9 percent of the vote in Missouri, followed closely by Cruz who got 40.7 percent of the vote.

Cruz could still call for a recount, given the extremely close margin separating him and Trump. Bernie Sanders, likewise trailing Hillary Clinton by two-tenths of a point, could also ask for a recount.

    cruz is not eligible to be POTUS…….
    .
    he’s a foreign born Canadian usurper….and a LIAR and a CHEAT….

    our CONSTITUTION states that all presidents MUST be born on AMERICAN soil and be born to two (2) AMERICAN citizen parents…….he knows this and yet he is still trying to bullshit the AMERICAN citizenry into thinking he qualifies…DISGUSTING …

    TRUMP 2016…..MAKE ‘AMERICA’ GREAT AGAIN…….

    ‘AMERICAN’ BORN…’AMERICAN’ BLOOD…’AMERICAN’ PATRIOT…

      The Constitution says anyone running for President must be a ‘natural born citizen.’ It does not state anything about being born on American soil. What about children born to American parents in the military based overseas? They would be eligible. However, the definition of ‘natural born’ I believe means that BOTH parents must be American citizens, but guess what? The would disqualify Obama!!! And at this point anyone who tries to prove that natural born mean both parents would not be able to get anywhere, mainly because the liberals seem to have control of most of our courts. Many, so called, Constitutional experts disagree about the term ‘natural born’, so no decision could be made without taking it all the way to the Supreme Court, taking years. Can you imagine if some court decided Obama was never eligible? The media would dig up every two bit ‘constitutional expert’ to support THEIR guy! What a nightmare. But, IMHO, I believe our Founders intended ‘natural born’ to mean both parents must be citizens, I guess they did not think a definition was necessary as it was presumed in their day that the meaning was clear. Unfortunate that something so simple as misunderstood wording could cause so much trouble!!

        marked spam.. what are they hiding?

        here is the info without the link.

        Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz

        [Born December 22, 1970, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, of a
        father who was a citizen of Cuba, and a mother who was a
        citizen of the U.S.

        Sen. Cruz is not eligible to be president, and could only be made eligible in two ways. One would be for at least the small parcel of land in Calgary on which he was born to be ceded to the U.S. and made incorporated territory for the duration of a term as president. It could not just be U.S. soil at the moment he might be inaugurated, but it could remain Canadian soil until that moment, and then be ceded back when his successor is inaugurated. The second would be for the province of Alberta to secede from Canada and be admitted as a state of the U.S. before the term of presidency would begin. The spot doesn’t have to be U.S. soil as of the date of birth, only for the duration of the term in office. ]

        Obama & McCain are also not eligible, go figure.

        btw, Romney is also ineligible, who or
        what the heck is running the country?

      • Phannesa

        They must have changed the legal definition, because by the definition you provided and I learned too, is that, both parents have to be American citizens. obola’s mother was american but father was not, he was citizen of Kenya. so, I guess we get screwed with the changes behind the scenes.

        • Elessar

          They haven’t changed anything, they just ignore the laws they don’t like! It’s a systemic problem!

        • frank_o_anerican

          The FATHER has to be a Natural born citizen of the united states for the child to be one, not the mother. Cruz nor Rubio can not be president, both their dads are Cuban. McCain was born to an American couple. so he is also an American. If you have to get papers to come to the states then you are not a natural born citizen. You are naturalized.

          • Phannesa

            According to your explananation, obama was definitely NOT eligible and yet, they said mom is American, so is the child.

        ALL MILITARY BASES ARE CONSIDERED U.S. SOIL…..
        I HAVE A NEPHEW BASED IN JAPAN….HIS DAUGHTER WAS BORN THERE AND SHE IS CONSIDERED A ‘NATURAL BORN’ CITIZEN……HOWEVER, MY NEPHEW HAD TO GO THROUGH MILITARY PROCEDURES TO NOTE HER BIRTH AND THE CONSULATE TO GET HER PASSPORT OR SHE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ENTER THE U.S. ……
        AND YES, OUR FOUNDERS DEFINITION MEANS TWO (2) ‘AMERICAN’ CITIZEN PARENTS……..
        HOPE THIS HELPS………
        AND YES….OBAMA IS NOT QUALIFIED…..

        • bg9g1

          neither are Cruz & McCain, yes, he was bornoverseas, but as he was NOT born on a Military or any other US based soil so to speak…

          John McCain

          Born in the Panama Canal Zone on August 29, 1936, which was a leasehold, not incorporated U.S. soil.

          GabrielJ. Chin, reported in an article in the New York Times, July 11, 2008, focused on a 1937 law that conferred citizenship on children of American parents
          born in the Canal Zone after 1904, which made John McCain a citizen just before his first birthday. But the law came too late, Professor Chin argued, to make Mr. McCain a natural-born citizen. However, Chin made the error that citizenship at birth was the same as being natural born.

          Lawrence B. Solum wrote an article examining the legal history of the issue without coming to a firm conclusion. Michigan Law Review, Vol. 107.

          Nonbinding resolution of the U.S. Senate declaring, erroneously, that McCain is a “natural-born citizen”, proving only that the U.S. Senate is incompetent or corrupt.

            I believe they (those who are not native born) are allowed to be Senators and Reps, but not POTUS. I have a relative who was adopted from a foreign country and her Mother (a progressive) told her “You can be anything you want to be, except President!”

          • bg9g1

            yes, they can..

            a perfect example would be
            Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

            however, aside from President, they
            cannot be a Vice President either..

            obvious logic is.. in case the President died..
            they would be next in line to serve as President)

            also sure i’m not telling you
            anything you don’t already know.. 🙂

            Persons naturalized according to these acts, are entitled to all the rights of natural born citizens, except, first, that they cannot be elected as representatives in congress until seven years, thereafter. Secondly, nor can they be elected senators of the United States, until nine years thereafter.

      Like obola, he has sealed his BC records!!! I read that a judge approved him according the Farah, WND.
