What Happened In Louisiana’s Primary?
When the calls were first made for Louisiana, virtually every network saw Donald Trump as the clear winner based on the early vote results: Somewhere in the neighborhood of 45-23 Trump to Cruz. However, as the night went on, that changed. Ted Cruz came back within about four points of Trump (at times during the night, he was within three points). So… what happened? What | Read More »
