Even though a lot of people are already looking forward to a Trump vs. Clinton battle for the White House, the race for the nominations isn’t over, as there’s still room for surprises, proven by yesterday’s Wisconsin primaries results.
According to CNN Politics, Ted Cruz finished with 15 percentage points ahead of the Republican front-runner, Donald Trump, while Bernie Sanders was 13 points ahead of Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump should start fearing Ted Cruz
Ted Cruz’s win wasn’t a surprise, as all polls were pointing to him obtaining a good result. Also, Bernie Sanders maintained his winning streak, with six wins in the last seven Democratic contests. This gives the Vermont senator a well needed momentum, ahead of the next primary.
Cruz used the positive result in Wisconsin in his attempt of unifying Republicans, instead of criticizing Trump, as usually, considering Tuesday as a turning point in his campaign.
“Either before Cleveland or at the convention in Cleveland, together, we will win a majority of the delegates, and together, we will beat Hillary Clinton in November,” he said.
As for Bernie Sanders, the result of the Wisconsin primaries gives him the ability to keep raising important funds and also makes him feel optimistic ahead of upcoming contests, especially New York, where the race should be even closer.
Bernie Sanders won’t quit that easy
“I know a little bit about New York because I spent the first 18 years of my life in Brooklyn, New York,” the Senator said in Laramie, Wyoming.
“Now please keep this a secret — do not tell Secretary Clinton; she’s getting a little nervous and I don’t want her to get more nervous — but I believe we’ve got an excellent chance to win New York and a lot of delegates in that state,” he added.
The next big primaries are scheduled April 19, in New York, with an impressive number of 247 delegates available.
