I cant find another one of these started.

Current polling puts Trump at 39 vs Cruz 23
Rubio seems a long way back.

However this is a caucus so who knows whats going to happen!

Cruz really needs a win here.

I think they said in case of a tie they are going to find some boxes of old D&D stuff and break out the 8-sided dice.

Trump 35-40 with Cruz and Rubio high-teens/low 20's. Recent polling put Trump at 47% in a CNN poll where he generally does not do that well.

So roughly that's about- Tump 40 vs Cruz/Rubio 40ish.

I wonder about somethin...

Who will Rubio's votes go to if he drops out? Cruz or Trump?
What about Cruz's votes if he drops out? Rubio or Trump?

It looks like as soon as one of them leaves, or if they both join forces, Trump is going to start sweating and it's really going to stink.

Nevada uses card draws to break ties.

In Nevada, voting ties broken with deck of cards

Or a gun fight at dawn.. would love to see that : Trump vs Cruz back to back pistols drawn.
The Pope could call off the paces.

There was also a lot of strnage going ons at the Dem caucus.... suspect or at least look for the same again. Cruz is probably even more dishonest than Hillary.

They should be required to use single shot flint-lock pistols !!!

And of course, all insurance claims would be considered "elective".

Still waiting for some results in Nevada but this exit poll is all I could find


Update (February 23, 8 p.m. PT): Nevada Republicans are angry too

Here are some entrance/exit poll numbers from Nevada caucus sites:

61 percent of Nevada Republican caucus-goers want the presidential nominee to "be an outsider."

33 percent want the nominee to "have experience" in Washington politics.

About 60 percent says they're "angry at the way the federal government is working."

Getting ready to tally votes... IMO as long as Rubio loses... the folks win...

And I am not a fan of Trump or Cruz... my candidate was slimed into netherland as soon as he took the lead a few months ago...

Dr. Carson fan here...

For me it Rubio and Cruz...but yes, Rubio would have a better chance of winning.

For me it is anyone other than an establishment candidate.

This is the only election where I believe those folks who don't ever vote should to send a message to the big money.

If the GOP goes to one eatablishment candidate Cruz or Rubio, and the establishment starts backing that candidate, that's when Trump goes Independent to get the last laugh when he costs the GOP the election and puts Hillary in the WH. Trump would rather lose on his terms than giving the GOP establishment the satisfaction of dumping him.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I was replying to JackKatMtn remark or Rubio. I consider both Rubio and Cruz an establishment candidate as much as Cruz denies it.

Rubio is the establishment now that Jeb bailed...

That leaves, Trump, Cruz, Carson & Kasich... all (so far) NON ESTABLISHMENT...

which is a good thing IMO...

Best options come November, for the folks "anti establishment" would be any selection that doesn't include, Rubio or Clinton... that would show progress from the power of the people...

It's a start, while I think that it's more important to put the lifers in congress "out to pasture", electing a President who wasn't pre-ordained by those in control would be a slap in the face of those SOB's who prosper off the blood sweat & tears of those who they rely on come election time...

It's time those who want to serve, kiss the ass of those who vote, and not of the well oiled machined that worked in the past...

You don't have to kiss the ass of those who have the vote.... Just shake their hands, understand where they are coming from , and be genuine in representing who are essentially YOUR Fing BOSS!

The gravy train is OVER..... IMO

Absolutely, as long as the 'fed up' come out and vote

I think if Hillary wins over Bernie and the vote shows different there will be a democratic rebellion...at least I hope.

Repubs are bending a bit but there needs to be a rebellion there as well. Insisting candidate subsribe to an agenda that the majority of americans don't agree with is box which few fall into.

4% reporting

Trump 42
Rubio 25
Cruz 21.9
Carson 7.1...just for you JackKatMtn.
