Donald Trump Failed the California Primary
It's funny how people claim that Donald Trump did spectacularly well in California. Actually, he did very poorly. Donald Trump received 787,408 votes in the California Republican primary, which was 77.4% of the vote. Let's compare this to other Republicans from the past: In 2000, George W. Bush was the Republican primary winner with 1,725,162 votes! In 2004, George W. Bush ran unopposed and got 2,216,047! He increased his share of the vote even when he was not running against anyone! In 2008, John McCain got 1,238,988 votes. In 2012, Mitt Romney received 1,328415 votes. Thus, Donald Trump's performance is the worst Republican winner of the California Primary in 16 years. Lots of Republicans are not voting for Mr. Trump. It's obvious. Not all of us have gone to Trump University.
