Color us shocked! Not only did Donald Trump manage to win an incredible seven states, but fellow candidate Ted Cruz planted himself firmly in second place. With three states under his belt, Trump clearly has a new rival.
Should Donald Trump be threatened by Ted Cruz? After the showdown on Super Tuesday, March 1, it would seem so! Trump continued to rack up the victories in seven states, making this a truly momentous night for the republican party. But he may not be unstoppable, as many see him; Ted was running right behind him the whole time!
GOP voters in seven states have established that they’re on Team Make America Great Again. Read it: Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vermont and Arkansas have all let the country know that they’re voting for a President Trump. His massive victory has left the nation stunned. Everyone knew that Trump was popular, and his rhetoric favored among voters in many of the southern states, but nobody quite believed that he would sweep the election so easily!
Of course, there’s a ways to go in the primary race, and Trump isn’t going to be without his obstacles. The one person who looks like he’s standing between Trump and the Oval Office? Ted! The Texas senator (or Zodiac Killer?) won the GOP primaries in Oklahoma, Alaska and his home state of Texas. Major victories that got him on the board, and on Trump’s radar.
Marco Rubio is trailing in a very far third place, placing his name on Minnesota. As for Ben Carson and John Kasich? Nothing, nada, zip! It’s quite possible that this could become a three-person race sometime soon — perhaps even after Super Tuesday turns into just plain regular Wednesday. Now we’ll see how Trump (and maybe Cruz) fare against the now neck-and-neck democratic nominees!
