The weekend numbers

The mêlée in Chicago and the mêlée in Jupiter, Florida pushed the two weekend primaries below the fold.  (Note to journalists: If you want to ask Donald Trump a question about affirmative action, have your pepper spray handy.)

No surprise that Marco Rubio took D.C., barely nosing out John Kasich, 37.3% to 35.5%.  Honors in that contest went to Ted Cruz, who defeated Donald Trump by finishing dead last, with 12.4% to the Donald’s 13.8%.  There are apparently at least 2,839 Republicans in D.C.  That was total vote.  Who knew?

It’s also not surprising that Cruz took Wyoming.  But the margin is eyebrow-raising: Cruz 66.3%, Rubio 19.5%, and Trump 7.2%.  Kasich got no votes.

So here’s the question: whom do you trust to identify a true conservative, voters at county caucuses in Wyoming or voters at an open primary in Massachusetts?

The D.C. vote sent an important message, too.  Ted Cruz was voted least malleable, least corruptible, and most principled.
