Donald Trump won the New York state primary with around sixty percent of the vote. Pundits were debating whether Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) would get some of those delegates. Turns out, as most people expected, Cruz didn’t have a chance in a place where New York values among Republicans are more moderate than conservative. Besides, Trump should have won his territory and convincingly. After all, he’s paid quite a few people there a lot of money.
For the Trumpkin pundits, this will be touted as a “yuuuuge” victory. And it should be considering he will most likely end up with practically all of the state’s 99 delegates. Of course, these same pundits will now state that Cruz can’t win and that his only chance is to steal delegates and force a contested Convention.
Let me see if I understand this: Cruz’s ground game has been far ahead of Trump’s, learning the rules and executing a very smart plan. Trump, for his part, has been trying to brute force his way to the nomination and complains loudly to cover for his lack of due diligence. Trump needed a sweep far more than Cruz needed to win any delegates in New York.
Trump underestimated Cruz’s ground game because he came into the process with ignorance. How does that bode for a businessman President if he can’t figure out how the rules are supposed to work to make good deals? Trumpkin’s of course just answer with, “Don’t vote for Lyin’ Ted Cruz! Vote Trump and Make America Great Again!”
