The quiet big story tonight going forward is Oklahoma, because it’s the first big delegate state that is a CLOSED PRIMARY. Meaning the waves of independent and Democrat cross-over voters that have elevated Trump so many other places are not available to him.
So only Republicans can vote and what happens? TRUMP LOSES, and he loses despite the fact Rubio still placed a strong third there further splintering the non-Trump vote.
Here’s another reason that’s big — most of the contests going forward are also CLOSED CONTESTS….
Conclusion: Trump can be beaten if the resources are spent to expose him, and Rubio’s wing of the party unites behind Cruz in time to win more of these closed contests….
Update (1:00 AM PST): Ted Cruz has won Alaska which is also a closed primary.
