When Ted Cruz, a Republican U.S. presidential hopeful, nabbed all 34 of the delegates in Colorado, he was on fire. And when he later snatched up all 14 delegates in Wyoming, he was practically orgasm with his mini victory, calling it the “grassroots victory”. But both were won in voter-less contests, something that critics have been calling “rigged”.

As shameful victories as it might have painted on the Republican for throwing everything but the kitchen sink, it was the only thing they could do to supposedly stop the Trumpmania. Unfortunately to Trump haters, such rigging was not enough to stop the Apprentice star. It only makes matter worse. Trump skilfully cried foul for being cheated, making him even more popular.


Yesterday, the 2016 horse race has ended, literally speaking. Trump swept almost all 57 of the state of Indiana’s delegates, putting him on the path to reach 1,237 delegates by the end of voting in June. In order to win the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, a candidate must win 1,237 delegates at the national convention.

With his crushing victory in the Indiana primary, Donald Trump now possesses 1,047 delegates while Ted Cruz 565 and John Kasich has only 153. After the devastating loss, Ted Cruz, despite pouring all his resources into, conceded he couldn’t stop Mr Trump from winning the 1,237 delegates required. Cruz is officially dropping out of the race.


Perhaps the writing was already on the wall when “bad omens” kept hitting the “Cruz Team”. His new running mate, former HP supremo Carly Fiorina, slipped and fell off stage in a moment that went viral online. Cruz was then attacked by a young 10-year-old heckler, yelling “You Suck”. Ted snapped and told the boy he’s get a “spanking” for his behaviour in the Cruz family.

Everything goes haywire thereafter. The supposedly cool Cruz went bonkers, calling Trump a “serial philanderer,” a “pathological liar,” and a “narcissist, something which should have came out from Donald’s mouth. The desperate Cruz, amusingly, compared Donald Trump to Biff Tannen, the bully character in “Back to the Future” film.


It must have been an unbelievable defeat for the 45-year-old Ted Cruz. At one point, Cruz was leading 33% to Trump’s 32% in Indiana. But that was in the first week of April. The straw that broke the camel’s back was when badass Trump wins New York State on April 19, when he topped 60%. Thereafter, Trump had been leading Indiana with 43% to Cruz’s 31%.

With 9 states to go and 520 delegates remaining, including Nebraska and West Virginia next week and California on June 7, Mr Trump needs less than half of the remaining bound delegates to become the nominee. Cruz said after the loss – “From the beginning, I’ve said I’d continue on as long as there is a viable path to victory. Tonight, I’m sorry to say, it appears the path has been foreclosed.”


Had he succeeded in his quest, Cruz would have been the first U.S. president of Hispanic descent, although he often downplayed his heritage on the campaign trail. But he ultimately couldn’t compete with Trump’s appeal among white, working class voters who were drawn to the billionaire’s bombastic and outlandish approach to politics.

With Mr Cruz’s exit from the campaign it means all that stands between the first-time candidate Trump and accepting the party’s nomination in Cleveland is Ohio Governor John Kasich, who has won just one state out of 41 so far. Mr Kasich pledged to stay in the race anyway, with his campaign manager saying the governor would continue to “offer the voters a clear choice for our country.”


Meanwhile Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Indiana primary, but she remains the frontrunner to secure the Democratic nomination. With Sanders’ narrow victory Tuesday; he picked up at least 43 of Indiana’s 83 delegates. Clinton now has 2,202 delegates to Sanders’ 1,400.

It’s a known fact that print and electronic media have been ganging up against Trump from the start. So how could Trump still emerges a winner? That’s because these traditional media have limited control over social media such as Facebook and Twitter. But why is he so damn popular? That has everything to do with him being a non-politician. He doesn’t speak with rhetoric like full-time politicians do.


There was an analysis done on how Mr. Trump answers a question. Amazingly, when Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush gives speeches, they spoke using 8th-grade standard. As for Trump – he speaks at just 4th-grade level. Like the best salesman, Trump keeps it simple and repeats himself a lot. And his supporters are willing to riot should the Republican insiders try to cheat again.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton now plunge into a 6-month battle for the presidency in November. At stake are the future of America’s immigration laws, health care system and military posture around the world. There’s only one thing that Clinton is terribly afraid of Trump. Thanks to his big bad mouth, Mr Donald is going to make Clinton’s email scandal a “huge issue”.
