Ted Cruz’s huge surge in Election Day voting in Louisiana

Source: Washington Post | March 6, 2016 | Philip Bump

One of two things happened in Louisiana. We know that the margins between the top three candidates in the state shifted dramatically between votes cast by absentee ballot and those cast on Saturday, the day of the election. That means that either that: 1) A candidate had a very strong get-out-the-vote effort, or 2) There was a broad shift in attitudes about the candidates.


Instead, this looks like the state of Louisiana bailed on Marco Rubio in favor of Ted Cruz. Which could explain why Cruz is targeting Florida all of a sudden. On Saturday night, Donald Trump called for Rubio to drop out of the race. If he can repeat what he did in Louisiana in Florida in just over a week, Cruz will take Rubio out himself.

    Let’s pray that Rubio’s internals look so bad that he actively talks about dropping out if he fails to win because THEN that would probably put Cruz in a very good position. Any hint of surrender would create a lot of doubt. I’m praying that Rubio says or does something himself and then people will get the message…even if it was unintended. I mean, really, people in FL ought, by now, to realize that Rubio would still be behind the field if he won FL. He is not winning where it counts anywhere else.

    Praying that a lot of excitement follows Ted at every rally, and that Rubio people turn to him in huge numbers. After all, Rubio lied to them in his position on immigration, amnesty & trade. It’s time his own state called him out for it.

    Pray for righteousness to be restored and for the peace of Jerusalem
