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.
