It appears that the predictions made after the first Super Tuesday is being backed and supported by the results of last night’s second Super Tuesday…
Senator Hillary Clinton & Donald Trump are one step closer to obtaining their party’s nomination in order to face-off against each other in the general election match-up for the 45th Presidency of the United States of America come November 2016.
Last night, Trump dominated the Republican primaries earning significant wins among five East Coast states. Meanwhile, Clinton proved strong as the Democratic lead winning in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut and Delaware but lost Rhode Island to Senator Bernie Sanders who is still in the race and could prove to be a problem for Clinton, despite what some political analyst may say.
Over at Trump Tower last night, Trump declared that the GOP primary was basically over due to his continued winning streak throughout the primaries.
“I consider myself the presumptive nominee,” said Trump, whose ego continues to inflate over pulling in voters with his racist & sexist rhetoric who has aided in the billionaire’s sweeping win. “Governor (John) Kasich and Senator (Ted) Cruz have really, really hurt themselves with a faulty deal that was defaulted on before it was even started.”
Trump’s major win on Tuesday doesn’t come as much of a shock, even after Republican nominee hopefuls Governor John Kasich & Senator Ted Cruz announced a type of alliance that aims to divide some of the upcoming races in hopes of pulling voters away from Trump in order to stall his ceaseless momentum.
Cruz & Kaisch are being seen as the face of the so-called “Never Trump” movement which has appeared within the GOP and represents a faction within who wants to stop the New York businessman from ultimately taking the party’s nominee.
“Even if the media yearns to declare this race over, the path to 1,237 delegates remains narrow for Trump, and he just left the most favorable part of the map for him in the northeast,” said the movement in a released statement.
Meanwhile, there is division of its own amongst the Democratic party but that is mostly felt within the voters as opposed to the party itself.
In the race to obtain their party’s nomination, the intense and very different rhetoric between Clinton & Sanders has created a dividing among voters. Seen as someone who can bring forth actual change and shake up the current climate of our government, Sanders has been labeled as the “politician of the people,” whereas Clinton has been viewed as the candidate who would protect the dubbed “1%” (i.e. banks) who have heavily thrown their support for her.
Although Clinton’s campaign has received a second wind—of sorts—after losing key states like Vermont to Sanders, Clinton still has to sway a great deal of voters who are distrustful of the presidential hopeful due to increasing reports of voting and campaigning foulplay pointing blame at Clinton’s campaign.
Despite their difference in platforms and the allegations made against her campaign, Clinton hopes to close this gap between democratic voters.
At a campaign rally in Philadelphia, Clinton seemed to address this gap of voters she has been unable to tap into stating that will work to win over Sanders’ supporters in order to unite the Democratic base.
“Whether you support Senator Sanders or you support me, there’s much more that unites us than divides us,” said Clinton.
Although the second Super Tuesday provided an interesting insight on what’s to come in the days leading up to the November elections, none of the nominees secured enough delegates to win their party’s the nomination outright.
