Trump On Track To Gain Most Primary Votes In GOP History

Trump event april 2016

Trump is keeping his own advice, “If you’re going to think at all, you might as well think BIG.”

Donald Trump is expected to win the most primary votes of any Republican candidate in modern history.  

He now has approximately 10.1 million votes – about 200,000 more than Mitt Romney got during the entire 2012 primary campaign – and should easily break George W. Bush’s record of 10.8 million votes from 2000, according to Eric Ostermeier, a political science professor at the University of Minnesota. 

One major impact has been the thousands of voters who have switched from Democrat to Republican during the primary season, in order to vote for Trump.   In February, the Boston Herald reported that nearly 20,000 Massachusetts voters made the switch.   In Pennsylvania, 145,000 have registered as Republicans since the fall elections.  The numbers are staggering in every state – people are getting out to vote for Trump who haven’t voted in years.

The next primaries will have a major impact – Indiana on May 3, and California and New Jersey on June 7.

At a rally in Indianapolis Wednesday night, former Indiana University basketball coach, Bobby Knight, who has endorsed Trump, called him “the most prepared man in history to step in as President of the United States.”

And the man is making history.
