Yesterday’s Super Tuesday primaries resulted in Donald Trump winning 7 states, Ted Cruz winning 3, and Marco Rubio winning 1. The delegate allocation shows a tighter race than expected with Cruz gaining over 200 and closing in on Trump.
Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin looks at the results and admits there were some big surprises. Namely, Trump was supposed to sweep on Tuesday but instead he was challenged in many states and lost 4.
With much to look at and process following the SEC Primary Levin offers one definite takeaway—Trump is not inevitable and is not running away with the nomination.
Trump to date has only garnered 34% of the popular vote in the Republican primary, leaving over 65% of Republican voters unsupportive of the frontrunner.
Barring any major exits from the race (say, Rubio to allow Cruz to go head-to-head with Trump), all indicators point to a long nomination process that could go all the way to the convention.
