    Mainly, because I'm tired of seeing the Trump and South Carolina threads in the front page.

    I expect Cruz to win Texas and probably Arkansas. I expect Rubio to win MN.

    I'm interested to see who wins Oklahoma - the first "closed" primary, where only registered Republicans can cast a vote.

    Just voted. It was a little busier than normal for a primary. Since I'm in bammer, it should come as no surprise there were more folks signed in to vote Republican than Democrat. What I found interesting was that, with less than an hour until polls close, only 54 people had chosen to vote the Democratic ballot while 252 had voted the Republican. Like I said, where I live, I'd expect more GOP voters to turn out, but I've never seen a ratio like that. Usually it's around 2:1 GOP or a little better. I've never seen anything so close to 5:1. Now, there were three or four more tables spread out based on name, but I would guess the numbers were similar at those.

    Trump will win Oklahoma, IMO.

    I'm amazed at the success of Trump.

    Scared, but amazed.

    It is the nation we've forged with "entertainment news" and "reality tv." And now it's out of anyone's control.

    Be entertained, not educated.

    That's had little effect, if any.

    People are tired of the entire political machination being puppets to the whims of both Parties, of political correctness, and most importantly, the willful and shameless abandoning of our nation's immigration laws.

    Attributing Trump's success to "entertainment" is akin to reducing Bernie's movement to "people who just want free shit".

    If hasn't even begun to get out of control. Wait until the GOP - the actual Party - tries to outright steal it from Trump at the convention, and failing that (and they will), then becoming so desperate as to run another candidate under the Constitutional Party in the General.

    Correlation is not causation.

    the guy is an inch deep on everything across the board. he's thrown out a bunch of sound bytes that people like, with no plan to back any of it up. he isn't even on the same side of the issues as most of his support. where is the reason?

    Sounds like Obama. It also sounds like Hillary, Cruz and Rubio

    So why is it shocking the most charismatic loudmouth is getting votes?
