This means people got up and stood in line to vote for someone who basically can’t lose and is just doing a primary for symbolic reasons, and he STILL won.— Angelo Isidorou (@angeloisidorou) March 4, 2020
After I consume more caffeine, I will continue neurotically analyzing but I’m pretty sure #trump is getting re-elected.
It’s no surprise President Trump won all the Republican primary races on Super Tuesday—that was expected, of course. But Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel highlighted what was impressive about Tuesday’s contests: voter turnout.
In AR, POTUS is on pace to receive DOUBLE the # of votes of the last two incumbent presidents.— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) March 4, 2020
In MN, with just two-thirds of the vote in, POTUS has already received nearly 4 TIMES the # of votes as he did in the 2016 caucus.#WINNING

Essex County, VT went for Obama in '08 and '12, but swung for @realDonaldTrump in '16 (aka “a Pivot County.") POTUS just received more votes there than all the Democrat primary candidates got in 2008.
Update on NC: POTUS has received 150% MORE votes than he did in '16!
With 100% reporting in OK, @realDonaldTrump has received over 270,000 votes. The President has not only surpassed his own vote total of 130,267 votes in 2016, he has over quadrupled the vote totals received by President Obama in 2012 (59,577) and President Bush in 2004 (64,389).— Richard Walters (@rww_gop) March 4, 2020
These numbers have to be concerning for Democrats as they try to decide between the 77 and over candidates at their disposal.
"While the Democrat Party continues to splinter over which far-Left, socialist candidate they can stomach, Republicans are more united than ever behind President Trump," McDaniel said in a statement. "Just tonight, our party saw historic turnout numbers in several battleground states. President Trump’s record of results has fueled the momentum for our movement. We are expanding our unprecedented data-driven ground operation into 23 states and engaging with an ever growing base of supporters. Not a single Democrat presidential candidate can compete with President Trump in November."
