Trump scores decisive victory that seals the deal for Nikki Haley

Nikki Haley still thinks she has a chance. Nothing could be further from the truth.

And Trump scored a decisive victory that seals the deal for Nikki Haley.

Former President Donald Trump dominated the North Dakota Republican Caucus on Monday, moving closer to officially capturing the party’s presidential candidacy.

The race was called by the Associated Press with around 38% of the ballots counted, with Trump leading former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley by 84.4% and 14.6%, respectively.

Candidates can earn delegates if they receive at least 20% of the vote.

However, if a candidate receives at least 60% of the vote, he or she is awarded all 29 delegates from the state.

Assuming Trump wins by more than 60%, the previous president will have 273 delegates, while Haley has only 43.

Haley scored her first and only victory in the Republican selection process over the weekend in Washington, D.C.

Yeehaw – a win in the most liberal place on earth.

In contrast, Trump has won big in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada, Wyoming, Idaho, Michigan, and Missouri.

Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia are among the states that will vote on Super Tuesday.

Assuming things continue to go his way, Trump may finish the primary as early as March 12, when Georgia, Hawaii, Mississippi, and Washington have their contests.

Despite the attention devoted to the first nominating contests, those early states awarded only 11% of the total delegates in the Republican presidential nomination campaign.

The Super Tuesday GOP nominating contests involve 865 Republican delegates. This represents around 36% of all delegates in the contest.

When all of the delegates from Super Tuesday and preceding races are assigned, more than 47% of the delegates will have been awarded.

And after the four competitions on March 12, more than half of the delegates will have been awarded.

If it keeps shaking out like it has been, Trump will be in a commanding position by tomorrow morning.

And if he can clinch enough delegates, then this race may be over by March 12.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated whenever that happens.
