This presidential race has taken an interesting turn after many folks assumed that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton had virtually pocketed their respective nominations. As we saw in Wisconsin tonight, that is not the case. Trump and Ted Cruz ran a close battle in the polls leading up to Tuesday’s primary, but Trump lost his foothold, perhaps because Wisconsin’s Republicans skew to the more conservative end of the spectrum (and he can’t make up his mind on the abortion issue). In sharp contrast, Cruz plays to the Christian Coalition and seldom wavers. So, Wisconsin turned into a battleground state with a winner-take-most approach to Republican delegates. As of a few days ago, Trump sure thought he was going to win this one.
