11:30pm 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 !!
♦ Kansas & Maine = Team Cruz
♦ Kentucky & Louisiana = Team Trump
◊ 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
It is really frustrating that many people’s comments do not understand the psy-ops of political manipulation. The power-brokers within the political apparatus are working earnestly to create “optics and narratives”. This is an ideological battle space – the GOPe are master manipulators of the electorate.
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’ll note 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 Senator Marco 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. This is Bush Family country.
And what happened? – Eventually the Maine 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), as predicted, held back reporting Donald Trump’s favorable numbers as long as they could. The goal again is to emphasize the two smaller state victories of Ted Cruz which they orchestrated to assist the overall objectives.
REGARDING LOUISIANA – Again, another Trump win with a larger state delegate allocation with results held back in order to diminish the win. The party apparatus (professional GOPe) again on the opposite side of the electorate.
See how that works?
