Another day has passed, and with it more of our primary season voting. Yesterday contests took place in Wyoming and Washington, D.C. And in both, Donald Trump lost. And not by a little. Here’s the results as they stand at the time of this posting.
Wyoming: Ted Cruz won by a huge margin with 66.3% of the vote, followed by Marco Rubio in second place with 19.5%, and Donald Trump in third at 7.2%, with 100% of precincts reporting.
That gives 9 of the 12 delegates that were decided on Saturday. Rubio and Trump each walked with one delegate. There remain 14 more from the state which will be assigned in April at the state convention.
Washington, D.C.: Marco Rubio won by 37.3%, just edging out John Kasich who came in with 35.5%. Donald Trump took third with 13.8%, and Cruz came in fourth with only 12.4%. A tiny number also went to Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, and Ben Carson, with a combined total of about 1%.
That gives Rubio 10 of the 19 delegates available, and the remaining 9 to Kasich. Obviously no other candidates won delegates.
Guam: One delegate was awarded to Ted Cruz from Guam. In Guam, delegates are elected at a party convention rather than in a primary or caucus. The other five delegates elected on Saturday remain unassigned. There are three more not yet elected, making a total of 8 unassigned. The Republicans will be meeting on Tuesday to try to reach a decision. Once elected a delegate may choose to whom they wish to commit, according to CNN.
The Day: So RedState puts the total delegates at:
SEN. MARCO RUBIO: 11
SEN. TED CRUZ: 10
GOV. JOHN KASICH: 9
DONALD TRUMP: 1
