BREAKING. North Carolina Delegate Disaster Brewing. John Kasich Leads Donald Trump.


North Carolina awards 72 delegates. A portion of those, in the far right column on the graphic, were awarded based on the primary vote. The remainder, 33, consist of 30 chosen at-large at the state GOP convention, May 6-8, plus three reserved for party leadership. The selection of the 39 bound delegates is underway and will end on April 23. These 39 are only bound for the first ballot. As the Republican Convention, barring some sort of a deus ex machina, is almost certainly going to be contested, the actual loyalties of the delegates is more important than who they are committed to on the first ballot.

So how is this working out for Donald Trump? Much as you might expect. With 24 of 39 delegates selected, he’s getting his ass kicked by John Kasich so far……………

……….. As we’ve seen over and over, the Donald Trump campaign it raising incompetence to previously unseen heights. Trump’s idea was that he goes out, gives speeches to big rallies, and then gets the nomination. In short, he has run his campaign as he has run his business ventures. We’re just waiting for the bankruptcy filing…………………..


WOW..........how can this be so.......folks being behind the only truly qualified to be president among the group of 2nd class clowns........... When did the folks in the GOP wakeup and begin to think for themselves?

Wait....so your point is that North Carolina, like Colorado, has establishment policies in place that will usurp the will and vote of the people of their state and you are calling that a 'win'?

Okie dokie.

It's just as wrong here as it is in the Democratic primaries.

I would also say this alludes to Kasich getting a lot of support at the contested convention by the machine, my impression is that something like this doesn't happen without a fair number of strings being pulled?

Currently, Kasich comes second convincingly in 6 states in the NE............ that's called a surge............ Kasich will go to the convention and if Trump or Cruz's wins on the first second ballot learn how to say........Candidate Kasich
