At first glance, Donald Trump seems to have had a dominating performance on Super Tuesday. He did win the majority of states, but the actual delegate count is much closer than expected. Projections show Ted Cruz nipping at the heels of Trump in terms of delegates.
Co-host Stu Burguire broke down the numbers Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program, showing the path for Ted Cruz to win the nomination --- and how the window is closing for Marco Rubio.
Total Delegate Count
The official delegate count is still in flux, but things are beginning to take shape. Stu used the New York Times model and fivethirtyeight.com projections to paint a picture of how close the race actually is.
These numbers reflect only the delegates assigned from races held on Super Tuesday:
New York Times
Donald Trump: 241
Ted Cruz: 222
Marco Rubio: 111
John Kasich: 18
Ben Carson: 3
Donald Trump: 262
Ted Cruz: 216
Marco Rubio: 93
To illustrate how the electorate shaped out in a state where the top three candidates were all competitive, Stu went into the demographics.
Salary Under 30K: Trump
Salary 30K – 200K: Ted Cruz
Salary Over 200K: Marco Rubio
Voters Who Decided a Month Ago
Donald Trump: +16
Voters Who Decided Within the Last 30 Days
Ted Cruz: +5
While the numbers are not final and totals are yet to be determined, one thing is certain – Donald Trump still has a fight on his hands. The GOP has one last chance to stop Trump before the convention by coming together around Ted Cruz.
