9:00pm We anticipate the need for more than one Super-Saturday election results thread. Hence, we will number them (as above) depending on the volume of inbound data.
MASSIVE TURNOUT !!

*Remember, Santorum (’12) and Huckabee (’08) won Kansas
◊ Politico Link To Results HERE
- Kansas – Caucus. 40 delegates (12 district proportional, 25 state proportional, 3 party) Minimum threshold 10% – Ted Cruz Wins
- Kentucky – Caucus. 46 delegates (all state proportional) Minimum threshold 5% – Donald Trump Wins
- Louisiana – Primary 46 delegates (18 district, 28 state) Proportional. Minimum threshold 20% – Donald Trump Wins
- Maine – Caucus. 23 delegates Proportional if no-one gets 50% – Ted Cruz Wins
UPDATE: It is really frustrating that many people’s comments do not understand the psy-ops of political manipulation. There is a reason why the State Republican Parties hold back data, and strategically time the release of data to frame media discussions and narratives.
Example: You’ll note the official republican party apparatus holding Maine data, while allowing “some” Cruz data [ie. Kansas 50%+ Cruz win] to flow into the media narrative. Once the media narrative embeds, voila’ Kansas releases final stats showing Cruz well below 50%, and gap very tight in Maine.
REGARDING MAINE – LOOK at Rubio’s numbers !! What you will see is that there was a coordinated GOPe operation to shift GOPe operatives from Rubio to Cruz so they can block Trump. There’s no way Rubio would be positioned so far down in GOPe country (Kennebunkport etc) were it not a very specific set of party instructions to do so.
And what do you know – the Main Republican Party apparatus holds a press conference to announce the results and “presto” Ted Cruz wins ! (didn’t get 50% though) Coincidentally, CNN knew to cut in NATIONAL TV BROADCAST – for the Maine results. Oh, how fortuitous. Helping to embed that constructed National RNC coordinated GOPe narrative that began earlier in the day.
REGARDING KENTUCKY – The state party apparatus (Mitch McConnell) will hold back Trump numbers as long as they can.
REGARDING LOUISIANA – The state party apparatus (professional GOPe) will hold back Trump numbers so he can’t go to the pre-scheduled presser (9:00PM) with them.
Oh, and they’ll skip mentioning that Trump exits the night with a greater lead then he went in. Why?… because the constructed party narrative was to sell the first two results (smaller delegate states) “AS IF” they were the end all and be all.
Oh yeah, and I’m calling Louisiana and Kentucky for Donald Trump already. Why? Because this game is entirely predictable.
