He actually those last primaries! ?!?!

Against whom?

All the candidates who "suspended" their campaigns rather than "dropped out".

lol, my thoughts exactly. He got 73.7% in our state yesterday which I wouldn't call great considering everyone else has dropped out.

Kasich and Cruz were both still on the ballot giving republican voters in those states a clear protest vote if they so desired. Turns out, in record numbers they had no desire to protest, but voted for Trump. Not to mention, republican turnout continued to be at record levels.

Mitt Romney got 68.4% and he was the only candidate, GWB got 77.9% when he was the only candidate. Seems about normal.

Actually, yes. Record turnouts, even after a presumptive nominee was chosen. Record numbers of actual votes. As mentioned, he beat other republican candidates that were in the same position. And all this despite a **** load of negative press and lack of party leadership support.

Great, change those goalposts. We were talking about last night's primary contests.

Ah, okedoke. :) While losing to Romney, he won one state with a slightly higher percentage than Romney did. Well done, Trump.
