Donald Trump won one more Super Tuesday. However, the victory has been incomplete. Thus, he can blame US Republicans for subsequent troubles.
In order to become the party’s nominee for president of the United States, Trump should obtain support from 1237 Republican delegates during the political convention, which is planned to be held on July 18-21 in Cleveland.
There are a total of 2472 delegates who are going to take part in the primaries. Currently, Trump has won about 44% of the delegates from different states.
If Trump continues to win, then by the start of the party’s Congress, he’ll have 1088 votes instead of the required 1237.
Even if he wins in all the rest of the states, some delegates will be anyway distributed proportionally, i. e. his rivals Ohio Governor John Kasich and Senator Ted Cruz will be right beside him.
At the end of the last Super Tuesday, media hardly mentioned Cruz, who had won several primaries. The attention of all experts was drawn to Kasich, who finally got his first victory in his home state of Ohio.
Kasich, who has more moderate views than Trump and Cruz, has taken all 66 delegates of his state, complicating the task for both candidates.
