slavmar3z1,237 delegates, or just over half the total of 2,472, are needed overall to win the Republican race for the 2016 presidential nomination. If no candidate gains a majority, a brokered Republican convention will be held. Donald Trump stands as the party’s frontrunner, having as of April 7 a total of 745 delegates, with Rafael “Ted” Cruz at 501, and John Kasich at 143. Of the approximately 858 delegates left to be determined, Trump would have to win 492, or about 58%, to reach the magic number 1,237.

Total delegates (April 6):        Trump 745     Cruz 501      Kasich 143

Wisconsin held its Republican primary on April 5, 2016. Rafael Cruz won the state, dominating the heavily populated metropolitan counties primarily in the southeast and gaining 36 delegates. Donald Trump had a substantial lead in most of Wisconsin’s counties, particularly in the rural north and west, and received 6 delegates.

The upcoming Republican primary (all future events are primaries) schedule, with delegate totals and notes on projected share of vote is:

Republican Primary Schedule

4-19 New York       95   Trump leads Cruz 55/11%; More than 50% wins all
4-26 Connecticut   28    No poll data
4-26 Delaware       16    No poll data
4-26 Maryland       38    No poll data
4-26 Pennsylvania 71    (54 unpledged) Trump leads Kasich 36/33%
4-26 Rhode Island 19    No poll data, but Trump probably leads

5-3   Indiana          57    No poll data, but Trump probably leads
5-10 Nebraska       36    No poll data
5-10 W. Virginia     34    No poll data, but Trump probably leads
5-17 Oregon           28    No poll data
5-24 Washington    44    No poll data

6-7 California       172    Trump leads Cruz 38/27%
6-7 Montana          27    No poll data
6-7 New Jersey       51    No poll data, but Trump probably leads
6-7 New Mexico      24    No poll data
6-7 South Dakota    29    No poll data

Projection: Sources differ on the number of remaining delegates to be assigned, with figures varying from about 850 to 900. The reason may be that Missouri results are still uncertain, or that some of the unpledged delegates have not yet been committed. In any case, the number of delegates left to be assigned in future primaries is 769.

Trump needs another 492 delegates to reach the magic number 1,237, or about 58% of the approximate remaining 850 delegates.  Since he has already won 55% of the 1,389 deligates allotted so far to Trump, Cruz and Kasich combined, this is reasonably consistent with his past performance.

By conservative estimates, Trump is likely to receive another 440 delegates from future primaries. These estimates are based on poll data where available. (In states where poll data is not available, the assumption is Trump would receive 50% plus one of the delegates, a slight bias to reflect his lead in national polls. In states where he is expected to win, it is assumed he will receive about 60% of the delegates, reflecting his past performance.)

By this conservative estimate, Trump would end up 52 delegates short. However, he could still win the necessary 492 if he earns an average of 62% in states where poll data is not available, or receives some of the unassigned delegates from earlier primaries.


Results for March, 2016

Donald Trump enjoyed an overwhelming victory on March 15, having gained 204 delegates, or 62% of those assigned as of the afternoon of March 16.  Kasich took 80, Cruz 41, and Rubio, who has dropped out of the race, just 6.  The results of the March 15 MIssouri primary are still too close to call, with Trump at 40.8% and Cruz at 40.6%. Assuming the delegates are divided equally, this would give each of the two another 26, with Trump having won approximately 61% of delegates for the day.

Trump has won, as of early March 16, a total of 18 states and the North Mariana Islands, close to tripling Cruz’s tally of 7 states, while Rubio has won only one state, along with Washington DC and the territory of Puerto Rico, and Kasich only the state of Ohio.

Election figures for March, 2016:

On March 5, Rafael Cruz took 69 delegates due to a huge win in the Kansas caucus—despite polls showing Trump in the lead—as well as a surprise win in the Maine caucus.

On March 15, the biggest night since March 1 Super Tuesday, 367 delegates were up for assignment. Most states allocate delegates somewhat proportionally, but ten allocate them on a “Winner Take All” (WTA) basis. Two of these, Ohio and Florida, held primaries today, with Trump gaining all 99 delegates in a two-to-one win in Rubio’s home state of Florida, while Kasich took 66 from his home state of Ohio.  Trump gained a clear lead in Illinois and North Carolina, and won all 9 delegates today in the North Mariana Islands caucus. We are still awaiting results from the Missouri primary.

Censorship Looms Over European Union

Quemado Institute editor Karl Pomeroy received a legal threat today in response to a comment he posted on the Russia Insider website about the rise of the R********d banking family. The comment did not mention race, but was of historical content. The threatener accused Karl of “spreading Nazi propaganda,” then repeated the full text of the German Criminal Code Section 130, which outlaws inciting “hatred against a national, racial, religious group or a group defined by their ethnic origins,” which Karl’s comment did not do. A similar law, it was claimed, is now in force in 11 other European countries and carries a penalty of up to five years. The wording of the law is so vague, it could be applied to any criticism of those in power. If a political analyst can accidentally “violate” this totalitarian decree, there is no freedom of speech or press in Europe.
