Scarlet Woman Ready To Take On Trump (Revelation 17:4)

A little after midnight EST on Wednesday, both candidates had won seven states.
“It’s clear tonight that the stakes in this election have never been higher and the rhetoric we are hearing on the other side has never been lower”, said Clinton. Two-thirds of her voters want to continue President Barack Obama’s policies, rather than shift in a more liberal direction.
Neither Mr. Trump nor Mrs. Clinton is ideally suited to quell the political situation of the United States in 2016, where discontent understandably ranges from the hard political Right to the hard political Left, from the young to the old, from the activists in both the Tea Party to Black Lives Matter.
“Trump’s dominance has rattled Republican leaders, who fear he’s unelectable against Clinton in November”.
Ryan’s comments came as many in the Republican Party struggle to come to terms with the growing possibility that Trump will be their nominee, with some Republicans repudiating him while others offer him their support. Instead, he’s watched Trump, a brash NY real estate mogul, display surprising strength with the region’s evangelical Christians and social conservatives.
“I’d like to congratulate our Senator Ted Cruz for winning the biggest prize on Super Tuesday”, said Texas GOP Chairman Tom Mechler.
“I congratulate Sen. Sanders for his strong showing and campaigning”, Clinton told supporters in Florida, looking ahead to a coming primary state.
Rubio emerged Tuesday with his first victory, in the Minnesota caucuses, but did not live up to the wider hopes of the numerous Republican officeholders who have promoted him as the party’s best alternative to Trump. According to the Texas Democratic Party, 29 super delegates are allocated for the Lone Star state, which brings its total to 251, the most of any Super Tuesday state. Conversely, voters who said honesty mattered most to them broke overwhelmingly for Sanders, and 7 of 10 who valued most the phrase “cares about people like me, ” also chose the Vermont senator. Democrat Bernie Sanders picked up his home state of Vermont, as well as Oklahoma, Colorado and Minnesota, but failed to broaden his appeal with minority voters who are crucial to the party in presidential elections.
Trump has won at least 175 of the delegates at stake in Tuesday’s contests.
The “Super Tuesday” contests showed Clinton reclaiming her mojo against Bernie Sanders. Sanders has at least 319. It takes 2,383 delegates to win the nomination.
Trump is leading the Republicans and Hillary Clinton is the Democratic front-runner. But the race also featured states like Massachusetts, Vermont, and Virginia that should have been Marco Rubio territory. But under party rules you only need to win 3.51 delegates to round up to 4 delegates and split the district’s prize. Ohio Gov. John Kasich has won at least 17 delegates and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has won at least three. Trump led in all of those categories, but was most dominant among the almost 1 in 5 Republican primary voters who called immigration the most important issue.
Trump’s victory was narrower than he thought it would be — he has taken six of the 11 states so far: the southern belt of Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee and Virginia, with MA.
The exit poll was conducted by Edison Research for The Associated Press and television networks.
