Voters are already lining up in Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Maryland, Connecticut, and Delaware to vote in the Republican presidential primary, with 172 total delegates available. And it looks like doom for the GOP political establishment. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Ohio Governor John Kasich’s secret plan to team up against Donald Trump appears to have already failed!
According to the NBC/Survey Monkey poll, conservative businessman Donald J. Trump has reached the “magic” 50% support threshold nationally, for the first time ever. This bombshell news destroys media expectations that Trump’s support has a ceiling… Instead, as more voters are starting to pay attention to the race, the more they are becoming active supporters of Trump!
This is extraordinary:
Donald Trump has reached 50 percent support from Republicans and Republican-leaners nationally for the first time since the beginning of the NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking Poll in late December. This milestone is significant as the 2016 primary heads into its final few weeks of contests, as there has been intense speculation that Trump’s support has a ceiling. Though his support has hovered in the high 40s since mid-March, the front-runner had yet to secure half of Republican voters.
These results are according to the latest NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking poll conducted online from April 18 to April 24 of 10,707 adults aged 18 and over, including 9,405 registered voters.
Plus, the poll shows a tangible effect on voters who don’t generally vote Republican. While GOP establishment leaders and “conservative movement” voices have always been against Trump, independent voters are ready to support Trump’s refreshingly bold message. The more he’s attacked, the more his numbers go up!
Tonight, Trump holds strong leads in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. The 118 pledged delegates matter the most, and Trump needs major victories in all states to avoid a contested convention in Cleveland, as the only winner-take-all state is Delaware (with only 16 delegates).
These numbers confirm that tonight will be another historic victory for Trump, leading up to the convention. At this point, the Trump train appears to be unstoppable. Plus, I think we’ve all learned more about how Presidents are actually nominated by political parties… An important education for grassroots conservatives.
