Uh Oh… BAD News for Ted Cruz After Wisconsin

by Sierra Marlee | April 6, 2016 12:04 pm

Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit[1] has done some number-crunching and, if everything goes the way he thinks it will, Ted Cruz could be eliminated from the Presidential race as early as the end of April.


From The Gateway Pundit:

Senator Ted Cruz won Wisconsin last night but that does not change the course of the 2016 GOP primary.

Based on current delegate counts and poll numbers Ted Cruz will be mathematically unable to reach the delegate count required for him to win the Republican Presidential nomination.

Donald Trump still leads Cruz by over 200 delegates.

Even after Wisconsin Ted Cruz will not have enough delegates to win the election and will be out of the race by April 26th.

By the end April it will be clear that Ted Cruz has no chance of reaching the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination.

Actually, in only 3 weeks, on April 26th, it will be clear that Ted Cruz cannot win.

This is in part because New York is leaning heavily towards Trump who leads according to polls listed at Real Clear Politics[3] by as much as 36%. New York has a Republican primary where the delegates are split proportionally. So even if Cruz wins a third of the delegates, it won’t be enough. This is because come April 26th, there are five Republican Presidential primaries and three of these are winner take all (WTA). All three of these states are in the East where polls show Trump leading (Maryland and Pennsylvania) or there is no polling available with the state highly likely leaning towards Trump (Delaware).

Even if Cruz wins a third of the delegates in Rhode Island or Connecticut or any of these states, it will not be enough to keep him mathematically in the race.

Do you agree with this analysis?
