I predict that if the GOP picks a candidate that doesn't have the highest number of votes, it will effect voter turnout during the general election.
After the 15th we will probably have a better idea how potentially likely a brokered Convention is.

Currently looks like the delegates for Kansas will be 26 for Cruz 11 for Trump and 3 for Ruio, though might be 25-11-4 if Cruz drops slightly.

I thought Trump was going to win Kansas based on the polls but if you think about it it makes sense that Cruz won Kansas. Kansas is part of the bible belt.

Bullitt County, home of one of the former KKK grand wizards, went Trump.

This is awesome so far. Rubio is TANKING, despite getting 90% of the Establishment's support and tons of money.
Today's results will hurt him, meaning he will lose Florida badly, meaning he will drop out after that.
Leaving my two guys left to fight it out.

The turnout was HUGE in Maine today. Lots of enthusiasm for both Cruz and Trump. All the GOP Establishment were pulling for Rubio (no, our governor LePage is not the Establishment; the longstanding GOP power establishment have fought him tooth and nail ever since he first announced for governor, but he has been overwhelmingly supported by the grassroots).
I saw lots of young people and first-timers with Trump signs today. The Cruz people were more of the "regular conservatives" who have been involved for quite a while.

As an aside, almost all of Carson's votes will go to Cruz, I bet.

I think Trump still has to be considered the favorite.
