Memo to the “Never Trump” crowd: you’ve officially lost.
I admittedly didn’t expect much from Tuesday’s primary – what was there to expect? We already know that the election in November will pit Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton. Both candidates are now within 100 delegates of securing their respective nominations outright, but Trump faces no competition, and there aren’t even enough delegates left for Bernie to pull a victory.
Well, you wouldn’t have heard it from the mainstream media, but Trump broke a record Tuesday night: he became the most voted for Republican in the primaries ever. The Gateway Pundit has the scoop:
With his win tonight in the State of Oregon along with previous victories throughout the country, Donald J. Trump broke George W. Bush’s record with the most votes won by any Republican Primary Candidate in party history.
George W. Bush won 10.8 million votes in the 2000 Republican primary. Donald Trump has won 11.1 million votes so far this year.
Trump is outperforming his fellow Republicans – and even the Democrats.
Trump has more primary wins (27), more overall state wins (30), the highest percentage of primary wins (87%), the highest percent of overall state wins (71%), the highest percent of primary delegates (74%), the highest percent of overall delegates (67%), and the highest percentage of votes (60%) than the final top four Republican and Democrat candidates.
Now that that’s over – I propose a new movement. Never Hillary.
