Nevada caucus results 2016: Who won Nevada GOP Republican caucuses and who lost, latest update
Las Vegas: Donald Trump has once again come out with another impressive win. After winning Nevada caucuses in such an impressive manner, Donald Trump has shown that no other Republican presidential hopeful comes close to him when it came to impressing Republican supporters.
Nevada was his third consecutive win. After New Hampshire and South Carolina, Nevada has sent a clear message to the Republican establishment that however they may be opposed to the billionaire businessman, when it comes to common Republican fans, Trump is the number one choice.
Now there are reasons to believe that Donald Trump has been very successful in attracting the GOP fans who simply distrust the GOP establishment. This seems to have given him a head start over his competitors including Ted Cruz who also attracts core Republican support base.
The Nevada win, without any iota of doubt, was a stunning show of momentum for his campaign, one that made it increasingly difficult to imagine a scenario where any other GOP candidate wins the Republican nomination.
While talking to his raucous fans in his victory speech in Las Vegas he said, “We love Nevadaâ€¦We will be celebrating for a long time tonightâ€¦We weren’t expected to win too much and now we’re winning, winning, winning the countryâ€¦And soon the country is going to start winning, winning, winning.”
He must be commended by channeling the frustration of GOP fans in the party leadership. He said that he has support across all the demographics and added, “We won the evangelicalsâ€¦We won with young. With won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated.”
It must be added here that he must love the poorly educated as they are the ones who will back his extremist ideologies. Not only was it a win in the Silver State, but it was a win with a huge margin. With 30% of the expected vote in at about 3 a.m. ET, Trump was dominating the race with 42.6%. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were in a narrow battle for second with Rubio at 24.4% and Cruz at 23.6%.
