Wisconsin’s 42 delegates will be awarded on a winner-take-most basis. The winner of the statewide vote will receive 18 delegates, and then three delegates will be awarded to the winner of each of the state’s eight congressional districts. This system means Cruz will likely win all or almost all of the delegates. While winning a delegate majority is likely beyond reach for Cruz at this point, by winning Wisconsin he denies them to Trump, who needs to win about 500 of the remaining 924 delegates to carry the Republican nomination and avert a contested convention.
The real deal is this:
Trump can still pull it off and grab 500 of the remaining delegates.
Cruz is too far off in the delegate count to be the nominee. Neither he nor Kasich have a path and Kasich is just plain done. Although he may stay in the race anyway. Who knows?
The only purpose Cruz and Kasich serve are to bring the party to a contested convention.At that point someone without any skin in the game will jump in and the GOP elites will pick that winner. Most likely Paul Ryan. although they all keep lying about it. It could be a real food fight at that point with several people outside the race thinking it could be their shot.
So Cruz helped the establishment, even though he can’t win;chances are he’s already been promised something in return for his efforts. Romney didn’t go to UTAH to help him out for nothing.The Bush’s didn’t jump into help his campaign unless they have something up their sleeves too. Carly only got on board because her bill came due-she owed Cruz for a huge sum of money his pac donated to her.
Hang in Trump supporters. Remember the cabal’s home base IS Wisconsin. Ryan,Reince, and Walker are all buddies. How could he not win Wisconsin? It may have been the demographics out there too. They just don’t get the elite machinations that go on with the RNC. They think they voted Cruz. Some think they voted Kasich. They don’t get that their vote was never intended to do anything BUT force a brokered convention.Basically a wasted vote the GOP counted on. Sorry they fell for it but they fell for it.
Wisconsinites better HOPE Trump gets the delegates he needs in the rest of states-and he should-because if he doesn’t the American ppl will certainly look back to Wisconsin and say ,thanks heaps people.
As for Trump Supporters-hang in. Like Trump says,never give up. It’s one state. He gets some delegates and he’s really not that far off!! Of course we’re discouraged and a Wisconsin win would have slowed down the plans for a brokered convention but there is still a shot!!
We’ll come back stronger and fight harder. You know Trump will.
