Marco Rubio Wins as Many Delegates in South Carolina as Did the 20 Million Illegals He Wants to Make US Citizens
You won as many delegates last night as Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio.
Marco Rubio placed second last night over Senator Ted Cruz in South Carolina. Rubio earned exactly zero delegates for his second place finish winning as many delegates as 20 million illegals he wants to make US citizens.
The Bustle reported:
Despite the high profile endorsement from popular Gov. Nikki Haley, Marco Rubio disappointed in the South Carolina Republican primary on Saturday. He managed to eke by rival Ted Cruz for a second place finish, but no one in the Republican race could catch Donald Trump on delegates. Rubio, along with the rest of his GOP compatriots, took home zero delegates at the end of the day in the Palmetto State, due to South Carolina’s unusual system for awarding delegates.
The South Carolina Republican primary utilizes a winner-take-most system that awards delegates on a statewide and congressional district basis. In the statewide election, which Trump won handily with a 10 point margin, 29 delegates are given to the winner of the popular vote. The remaining 21 delegates are awarded to the winners of each of South Carolina’s seven congressional districts — three delegates for each district. Trump also won each of those seven districts, and therefore took all the delegates up for grabs.
No Republican candidate has ever won all the delegates in the primary since South Carolina switched to the current system for the 2000 election. By all predictions, Rubio should have gotten a least a couple delegates as the first runner up, but the unprecedented domination from Team Trump kept Rubio and all the other contenders at a goose egg.
