Each week during the 2016 election season, I am publishing a video update discussing how the elections are progressing. The third installment is here. Reacting to viewer feedback, this video is considerably shorter than the previous two, and I hope to shorten future videos even more.

Republican Delegate Count
Welcome back to Election Projection’s third episode of the 2016 Election Updates. This week we’re going to look at Super Tuesday. The results from Super Tuesday were quite dramatic – lots of states voting, lost of people voting.
Right now, Trump so far has won about 46% of the delegates awarded. He’s about 27% to the nomination, to the majority that he needs to get to the nomination. So, he still has a ways to go, and it’s interesting, a lot of the talk now is how can Trump be stopped. Previously, the school of thought was we need to get down to a one-on-one match so that Trump and whoever else could go head-to-head, and that way maybe Trump would not be able to win. But the thought it changing now so that if all the folks stay in, all the guys that are running stay in, then they could dilute what Trump can win and avoid him getting to the majority of the delegates before the convention. One of the things that’s contributing to that idea is the fact that a lot of the primaries coming up are closed, which means that only Republicans can vote in the Republican primary or caucus. We’ve seen indications that Trump doesn’t do as well in these closed primaries. So what means is that is may be a little more difficult for him to earn delegates in these closed primaries and may reduce the chances of him getting to a majority he needs before the convention. So, I’ve taken a look at that in a little bit in depth, and I’m going to be putting all this information in an article on ElectionProjection.com in the coming days. So keep a look out for that article. Just to give you a teaser: even if Trump wins Florida and Ohio, that doesn’t mean he’s a cinch for the Republican nomination. So there’s a teaser for you for the article coming up. Next week, we’ll be looking at the elections from this weekend as well as previewing the all-important March 15 elections which include Florida and Ohio. We’ll see you then.
