Who won Nevada GOP Republican caucuses? Donald Trump wins, Ted Cruz relegated to third place as Marco Rubio rises

Why Donald Trump seems to be doing so well in the Republican presidential race thus far? If you needed an answer, it has come loud and clear. The Nevada entrance polls conducted by different organizations have concluded that people want someone who is a Washington outsider.

Latest poll results suggest that real estate czar Donald Trump seems to be sprinting ahead of others in the Nevada caucuses. Though results are far from being over and it may still take some time before the picture becomes really clear, he seems to be well ahead of others.

There are clear indications that billionaire businessman Donald Trump has won a third straight primary victory in the Nevada caucuses, according to US media, cementing a lead that could soon be insurmountable in the Republican presidential race. Early results on Wednesday showed Trump, who had been expected to win by a large margin, leading the pack of candidates with about 44 percent of the vote.

He was projected by Fox News to come in second with about 30 percent, edging out Ted Cruz who received 16 percent in the Nevada primary, according to early results. Both men, however, were far ahead of John Kasich and Ben Carson, Fox News projected.

It must be kept in mind that Donald Trump’s lead seems to be unwavering now and his leads are becoming bigger. The Nevada win is the third in a row for Trump in the state-by-state nominating contest for the November presidential election. A billionaire businessman and political outsider, Trump’s brash, anti-government talk appealed to Nevada residents, political strategists said before the Tuesday evening caucus. Cruz and Rubio had both set their sights on a strong second-place finish there in the hopes that a win over the other would provide important momentum ahead of the 12 nominating contests on March 1, known as Super Tuesday.

An ABC report while talking about Donald Trump win in Nevada says, “New highs in desire for an outsider candidate and in voter anger vaulted Donald Trump to an easy victory the Nevada Republican caucuses, completing a three-contest hat trick for the New York billionaire – first New Hampshire, then South Carolina, now Nevada…Six in 10 caucus-goers in entrance poll results said they were looking for someone from outside the political establishment, compared with about half in previous contests. And a smashing 70 percent of them voted for Trump, a new high for his populist campaign among outsider voters”.
