LAS VEGAS, NV – To no one’s surprise, Donald Trump won Nevada by such a wide margin that the networks called the election a minute into the analysis with less than 1 percent of precincts reporting.
In a carbon copy of South Carolina just three days earlier, Trump coasted to a comfortable double-digit win, with rivals Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz battling for second, and Ben Carson and John Kasich trailing far behind.
It looks as if no one’s dropping out ahead of the real jackpot, Super Tuesday, on March 1, when an abundance of delegates are at stake.
The only story tonight is that Trump continues to beat Cruz even among evangelicals, the Texas seantor’s forte.
Despite his strong numbers, Trump leads Republican candidates in negatives, including nearly half thinking he doesn’t have the right temperament to be president. Nonetheless, they vote for him anyway, perhaps hoping that he will tone it down if and when he gets to the Oval Office, as he has promised to do.
