Trump Draws Massive 17000 Crowd in New York While Cruz Struggles to Draw 100

Supporters of GOP frontrunner Donald Trump loudly chanted “Lyin’ Ted” at a rally in Bethpage, Long Island, Wednesday night, where the real estate tycoon received a hero’s welcome.

Speaking before a packed out crowd of 17,000 attendees, the businessman laid in on runner-up candidate Texas Senator Ted Cruz, comfortable in his home state which polls show him winning.

“He is Lyin’ Ted,” Trump says in a clip of the event, “but you have to spell it right,” he added. “It’s ‘L-Y-I-N apostrophe. Lyin’ Ted. The bible held high, he puts it down and then he lies.”

Meanwhile, Cruz struggled to amass 100 supporters to a rally in the Bronx accompanied by one of the district’s state senators.

“Aside from about 70 ministers affiliated with Diaz, only a dozen voters turned up — and two of them were tossed out after screaming protests about the Texas senator’s hardline stance on immigration,” reports the New York Post.

In the delegate race, Trump currently has 743, Cruz 517 and Ohio Governor John Kasich 143. 1237 delegates are required to win the Republican party nomination.

In New York where there are 95 delegates up for grabs, candidates will win 3 delegates per 27 districts if they win more than 50% of the popular vote. There are also 14 at-large delegates available.

“Delegates are bound for the 1st ballot at the Republican National Convention unless released by the candidate,” according to TheGreenPapers.com.

Not that any of that matters, since Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus has made it clear that the party’s nominee will be selected in Cleveland in July by a convention of delegates, and not by the will of voters who turned up by the millions at their respective states’ primaries to support Trump.

  1. The Israeli media will have the facts reversed, Trump behind in the NY polls, and spit on a Hispanic person before the story comes out…..

    Worse yet most will believe it!

    The elite are more naked now than when they went after Perot and Paul.
