One person, Marco Rubio, will decide who wins the Presidency.
The final results of the GOP Presidential primary in South Carolina are in, and all 50 delegates have been awarded to Donald Trump. The GOP primary allowed Democrat cross-over voters in the “all or nothing” primary, while most future states proportionally distribute their delegates, so it will take MONTHS for any candidate to obtain the 1,237 delegates needed to win the GOP primary.
South Carolina results, with Iowa/NH delegates:
Trump: 33% with 67 delegates so far
Rubio: 22% with 11 delegates so far
Cruz: 22% with 10 delegates so far
Bush: 8% (who then suspended his campaign)
Kasich: 8% with 4 delegates so far
Carson: 7% with 3 delegates so far
In Nevada, Hillary Clinton beat Bernie Sanders 53 to 47% in the Democrat primary. (I don’t think either can win nationally in November.)
What does all this mean?
First, I believe the GOP field just narrowed to 3 candidates. I know 5 are still in, but it appears a 3-way race between Trump (who may inherit Kasich’s liberal GOP voters), Rubio (who may inherit Bush’s establishment voters and donors), and Cruz (who may eventually inherit Carson’s evangelical voters, but not Carson’s endorsement due to personal offense). Then comes Super Tuesday, and I predict the following:
Nevada – February 23 / 30 delegates (Trump leads, Trump wins?)
These states vote on Super Tuesday, March 1st: (My prediction?)
Alabama – 50 delegates (Cruz wins?)
Alaska – 28 delegates (Trump wins thanks to Sarah Palin?)
Arkansas – 40 delegates (Cruz wins?)
Georgia – 76 delegates (Cruz wins?)
Massachusetts – 42 delegates (Trump wins?)
Minnesota – 38 delegates (Trump wins?)
Oklahoma – 43 delegates (Trump leads narrowly, but Cruz wins?)
Tennessee – 58 delegates (Cruz wins?)
Texas – 155 delegates (Cruz wins?)
Vermont – 16 delegates (Trump wins?)
Virginia – 49 delegates (Trump leads, Trump wins?)
Before Super Tuesday Trump will have won 3 states (NH, SC, NV) and Cruz 1 (Iowa).
On Super Tuesday I predict Trump wins 5 states and Cruz 6.
I LIKE RUBIO, BUT I PREDICT MARCO RUBIO WILL NOT WIN A SINGLE STATE.
Yet the non-Trump voters nationally far exceed the Trump voters, and Rubio’s voters would swing to Cruz if he drops out. Therefore:
If Rubio drops out after Super Tuesday, Cruz wins. If not, Trump wins.
It’s that simple.
Marco Rubio will not win, but he will decide how long to stay in or not, and by that decision will throw the remaining states to either Trump (if Rubio delays until June) or Cruz (if Rubio drops out soon after March 2nd).
Marco Rubio alone will decide the next President. Let’s pray God gives him wisdom.
