In winning, the Texas Senator won 6 of 8 congressional districts and 36 of the state's delegates. Trump, who won two Wisconsin congressional districts, received 6 delegates. After the aberration
|Sen. Ted Cruz|
The Cruz victory increases substantially the possibility that Trump will not arrive at the national convention in Cleveland with the requisite 1237 delegates required to secure a first ballot victory. Meanwhile Cruz is maneuvering behind the scenes to ensure that, even in states Trump won, those delegates actually support him. Thus, when if the convention goes to a second ballot those delegates will be unbound and free to vote for Cruz instead of Trump.
Meanwhile on the Democratic side, Sanders won Wisconsin 56.6% to Hillary Clinton's 43.1%. This makes six state contests that Sanders has won in a row. The win though highlights Sanders' challenge in catching Clinton in the delegate race. Despite the solid victory, Sanders won only 47 of the state's 83 Democratic delegates.
Out performing polls? The entrails of birds is more reliable? Aren't most polls just dressed up lies? And, isn't their main use the ability they provide talking heads something to talk about, a framing, so to speak, that frames their actual ignorance?
So, bad polling results is about the same thing as bad science or junk science. Gallup realizes this. They don't do Presidential Polls....in part, because they have a reputation to protect.
