Let’s review the bidding

nc primary

North Carolina awards 72 delegates. A portion of those, in the far right column on the graphic, were awarded based on the primary vote. The remainder, 33, consist of 30 chosen at-large at the state GOP convention, May 6-8, plus three reserved for party leadership. The selection of the 39 bound delegates is underway and will end on April 23. These 39 are only bound for the first ballot. As the Republican Convention, barring some sort of a deus ex machina, is almost certainly going to be contested, the actual loyalties of the delegates is more important than who they are committed to on the first ballot.

So how is this working out for Donald Trump? Much as you might expect. With 24 of 39 delegates slected, he’s getting his ass kicked by John Kasich so far:

So, in this batch of committed delegates, if the voting goes to a second ballot, Donald Trump gets ZERO votes from North Carolina.

You can bet that his convention take isn’t going to be much better.

As we’ve seen over and over, the Donald Trump campaign it raising incompetence to previously unseen heights. Trump’s idea was that he goes out, gives speeches to big rallies, and then gets the nomination. In short, he has run his campaign as he has run his business ventures. We’re just waiting for the bankruptcy filing.
