Not a lot I can add to that. You listed off some of the main reasons I pull for him too. It's the non polished, non practiced, non groomed, non politician that is winning this race.

Hopefully future candidates are taking note.

The polling showed Pennsylvania Republicans liked Donald Trump, and it didn't matter where they lived or how much money they made. Trump racked up majorities across demographic groups.

The GOP front-runner won majorities of men and women, wealthy and working class voters, and Republicans who live in cities, the suburbs or in rural locales.

I just saw amazing graphics on FOX News.. Donald Trump won EVERY COUNTY in all 5 states tonight. 0 counties for Cruz and 0 counties for Kasich. Holy smokes!

FNC is saying that all the results they have in so far show that Trump has taken not only every state out of the five but EVERY county in EVERY state.

THAT is the hallmark of a MAJOR populist movement gaining unstoppable momentum.

It looks like we were typing the same thing at the same time, Kangaruex4Ewe. That sweep of every county in all five states even left the Fox News analyst speechless. Of course, CNN isn't mentioning it. Just continuing on with their increasingly nervous talking heads, talking about how much better Hillary is than Trump.

I saw that and isn't it funny how different stations spin things so much differently?

As everyone probably knows by now, there are 17 Republican delegates in PA that go to the winner of the state, and there are 54 delegates that the voters elected. Each district selects 3 out of however many were running, which varied by district.

These 54 can vote for whoever they want at the convention. (Which is a terrible system, but we are stuck with it for now.)

There was an uproar in PA when people realized this. I guess it never mattered for a long time, because the nomination was usually decided before it got to PA primaries. But now, people had to vote for delegates who might just override our vote for president, and that did not go over well.

So, delegates started declaring who they supported. Some said they would support the winner for their district. But some delegates already decided which candidate they would vote for regardless of how the voters felt. Lists have been all over, being updated daily, right up until today. Note - they can still change their mind at the convention ballot.

I was trying to go through the lists to see how it came out, but I give up

I'll wait for the experts to calculate the results.

These 54 PA delegates could be the deciding factor if Trump is close at the end.

ETA:
This was one of the most up-to-date lists of delegates, if anyone is interested:

If nothing else, it shows how crazy the selection process was.

I am happy that Sanders has said he is going all the way to the convention and not bowing out to the party....

After tonight's results, on the DEM side, it's clear that his message resonates with Dem voters...

Why should he bow out when he will have plenty of folks to represent at the convention...

If he were to bow out, it would be a slap in the face to all those who support his vision....

I don't think he could live down abandoning those supporters... Good on him...

Trump killed it tonight... and I have issues with the right's remaining, decision to try and ally to deny Trump the nomination... it's not like Cruz & Kasich have the same message...

It's more like Cruz to the right, Kasich to the left, and Trump in the middle...

I find it hard to fathom that both of the candidates left on the right, combined still lost every contest on the GOP side tonight...


 


Don't mind me... I was just posting some thoughts that came to mind....

While I don't have a dog left in this current hunt... Carson (R) & Webb(D) were booted early, I am beyond pleased that, at this late date in the process, TWO folks are still left to choose from...

Trump & Sanders...

How I love to see the establishment squirm, and the pundits on TV have NO ANSWER to why they are still here....

The folks still have a chance, and this season is proving it...... DON"T LET THE ESTABLISHMENT steal your thunder....

You have started something... don't give up, no matter what the pundits, MSM says......

Stand your ground!!!!

On this particular list of PA Delegates note the caution mentioned, which shows exactly what we have been going through deciding which delegates we should elect:


All 2016 Republican presidential delegate candidates and who they support
Sources: Newspaper, social media, phone calls, emails, snail mail, inside sources - You should always check candidates social media and personal contacts. There are a great number of "shills" who are actually supporting a different candidate. This list should be reasonably accurate and has been checked and is updated. This list will be updated as candidates are contacted.

If you need contact information for any delegate, ask via our contact form!

*** IMPORTANT!!! DELEGATES HAVE BEEN CHANGING THEIR SUPPORT - THIS LIST IS UPDATED DAILY AND REFLECTS THESE CHANGES - PLEASE CHECK THIS LIST IMMEDIATELY BEFORE VOTING TO ENSURE THERE HAVE BEEN NO CHANGES IN DELEGATE SUPPORT POSITION! ***


Seriously - you could check lists in various news sources, and all over the place and things were different.
In the days right before the election, Cruz and Trump each put out a list of delegates who had committed to them, but things changed so often no one was ever sure.

And note the mention of shills. Another concern.

The whole PA delegate system is stupid.

actually, I think this is what happens when a candidate has only the support of the christian far right. it's why I've been saying that cruz would never be able to beat hillary while trump possibly could. the party is insane if they take the nomination from trump to give it to cruz, although they might take it from him and give it to someone else who knows.

trump has a chance of beating the dems, let him to it!

I think there was apathy, and lack of knowledge, because PA never really was a deciding factor in the primaries previously.

This election season, MANY PA voters were contacting representatives trying to get the system changed. It was too late for this year. However, I have a feeling that there will be tremendous pressure on the party to change something for next time. I'm not sure how that will work out. The system gives the party total control.

That just jacks with my mind. These people are so out of touch and MSM still uses them as 'experts'.

Just a bunch of wishful thinking has been's who are trying to stay relevant.

Most of them (pundits) have been around for TOO long... as long as the group of folks who represent us in DC.. raking in paychecks to hobnob with lobbyists...

I saw the same in my time in the military... IMO when you are put in charge of folks/soldiers... you do your best to stand up for those in your charge, not turn your back on them so you can blow smoke up a seniors arse so you may get a stripe...

It looks like we have a rise of folks who aren't buying the sugar laden BS that has served the PC political machine for decades....

Whether you want a secure border or $15 an hour, folks are not going to fall for the status quo... I just hope they remember that in Nov, when a bunch of lifer congress/senate folks think their seat is safe...

I'd vote an iguana in to replace the vermin who hold office .... party is not a factor...

This is the part of the "Super Tuesday" show that gives me so much glee. This is where people who seem to have a disconnect with the minds of the voters tell us what we just saw. Priceless. Comedic gold.
