The media will tell you Donald Trump won the day on March 8. The real story, though, is about delegates.
"It's an amazing thing that happened last night because it is all about delegate counts. And over the last two election days, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have tied, each 121 delegates," Glenn said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program.
As the race now turns to the winner take all states, Florida just might be Marco Rubio’s last stand. In last night’s races, the senator failed to reach 20% in all states, reached 15% in just one and finished in single digits in both Michigan and Mississippi.
Co-host Stu Burguiere broke down the numbers to get a better understanding of what matters to voters and how the candidates stack up.
The term "evangelical" is defined in a more flexible way by some. In polls that break down evangelicals by weekly church attendance, Ted Cruz has significant leads. Using a broader definition, Donald Trump cleans up. In Michigan, he edged out Cruz in the overall evangelical vote 45-40.
With Rubio’s poor performance of late, his head-to-head numbers versus Trump have taken a dip. He now trails in a national poll, losing to Trump by 5, 46-41. The same poll has Cruz defeating Trump 43-41.
Entrenched vs. Late Deciders
In voters who made their decision more than a month ago, Trump dominates the field, leading 60-15. On the flip side, those deciding in the last month lean toward Cruz, 39-35.
High Negative Marks
In the latest ABC national poll, Trump's negative marks continue to be astronomically high. With nearly 75% of people polled believing he is dishonest, calloused, inexperienced and lacking a presidential temperament.
Believes Trump to be honest: 27%
Believes Trump to be empathetic: 26%
Believes Trump to have the right experience: 26%
Believes Trump to have the right temperament: 25%
A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll show Cruz gaining and a new candidate bringing up the rear. Rubio is now trailing Kasich nationally. His best poll in his home state of Florida still has him trailing by eight, and an average of all polls has him trailing Trump by 17.
