Primary Update - March 8 - Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton
After the March 8 primaries, like it or not, it's going to be Republican nominee Donald Trump facing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump is in strong first place after the March 8 primaries. Second place Ted Cruz is in a respectable second place, but not close enough. Ted Cruz came in a surprisingly strong second place on March 5 and came in slightly ahead of Trump on March 8. With nearly half of the delegate votes awarded, Cruz can only hope for second place spots and an occasional near tie in the remainder of the primaries. Cruz is also going to lose big in the New York primary on April 19 (if he's even around by then), which is Trump's home state and which Cruz made so many enemies with his slander. I don't have the slightest clue why Marco Rubio and John Kasish are still in the race. Rubio is in a far distant third place and even if he achieves his best case scenario by winning his home state of Florida on March 15, he'll still be in third place.
Hillary Clinton is in strong first place. Bernie Sanders has done surprisingly well, but not enough. There's also a bias in the Democratic Party establishment toward Clinton, with the super delegates votes making up one third of Democratic delegate votes which overwhelmingly favor Clinton. A lot of controversy with this rigged voting system.
Unless something drastically changes with the primary elections, that's all I plan to write about for the primaries. You'll see much more comprehensive and detailed analysis of the Presidential elections and results in the coming months. The 2016 Presidential election is just 8 months away.
