Voting already began in the Indiana primary and, at the end of the day, there are very high chances of knowing who the GOP’s nominee for the White House race will be.
Over the past weeks, Texas Senator Ted Cruz used every resource he had, including a partnership with Ohio Governor John Kasich and announcing Carly Fiorina as his running mate, in order to help him win the Hoosier State. Still, this could be in vain, as voters seem to prefer Donald Trump.
Indiana voters are trusting Donald Trump
“He’s the only candidate who is really going to change the system. Everyone else is in bed with the Republican leadership,” said Justin Stinson, a software engineer who voted for Trump, quoted by The Washington Post.
Michael Malone, a 48-year old truck driver, who also voted for Trump, said that he trusted the businessman even from the beginning of his campaign, adding that Ted Cruz has always been a dishonest candidate.
“In the last 10 days, he became clearer on his foreign policy, and it became more evident that Cruz would say anything to get a vote,” he said. Once Trump is president, and people see him in action, they’ll say: ‘Okay, we got the good deal.’”
Trump is more and more confident in his chances at becoming the nominee
Donald Trump is almost convinced that he will score another victory in the Indiana primary and he started bragging about his polling lead and endorsements from celebrities, but also started thinking about his potential clash from November, with Hillary Clinton.
“If we win Indiana, it’s over,” Donald Trump declared at a rally in Carmel. “They’re finished. They’re gone.”
Currently, Donald Trump has a total of 996 delegates from the 1,237 needed to win the nomination, while Ted Cruz has just 565. The Indiana primary has 57 delegates to offer.
