The Numbers: Trump 46, Rubio 23, Cruz 21


Donald Trump won the Nevada Republican caucuses on Tuesday, securing the businessman his third major victory in two weeks.

Trump led with nearly 46 percent—his highest number thus far—followed by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in a distant second with 23.9 percent, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz with 21.3 percent.

Entrance polls showed 58 percent of caucus-goers said they were angry with the government and looking for an outsider, compared with 42 percent in Iowa, 40 percent in South Carolina, and 39 percent in New Hampshire.

The win follows Trump’s victories in New Hampshire and South Carolina. Every candidate who has won both of those states has gone on to become the GOP nominee. Read more at the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
