Skip to comments.No Blue Texas Wave: Ted Cruz Received More Votes than Entire Democrat Turnout
Posted on 03/07/2018 5:47:16 PM PST by Jim Robinson
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) received more votes in the 2018 Republican Primary election than the entire turnout of voters in the Democratic Primary. The results shed a new perspective on the media-hyped blue wave stories from the weeks leading up to election day. In the Republican Primary of 2018, Senator Cruz received 1,317,450 votes in a race with four challengers. His Democrat opponent, U.S. Representative Beto ORourke only received 641,311 votes against two opponents.
Figures from the Secretary of States office show that just over one million voters turned out in the Democratic Primary in general across Texas. Cruz alone exceeded the entire Democratic voter turnout by nearly 300,000 votes.
Last week, Texas Secretary of State Spokesman Sam Tayler told Breitbart Texas that in normal gubernatorial primary elections, about 10 percent of registered voters turn out in the Republican primary and five percent in the Democratic primary. At that time, he predicted, based on early voting numbers, that Democrats would match the Republicans 10 percent turnout. Instead, Democrats fell short on election day. Republican voters slightly exceeded their normal voter turnout with about 11 percent of registered voters coming to their polls. Democrats also raised their turnout, but only to 6.8 percent arrived.

Russia I tell ya, Russian involvement, CNN drooling (hey hope).
HeHeHe, ... at the Rats!
Those pesky Russians
They did it again!
On the CBS11 News tonight, Beto says he is still trying to convince his Republican mom to vote for him in the general instead of Cruz.
Pathetic and sad.
We need to get Trump and Ted to invite Beto’s mom to a rally in the fall and present her a “Don’t Vote for Beto” T-shirt to wear.
Does this outage affect us monthlies or can you still collect them?
I wonder how many Rat votes were legal?
The enemedia and their blue wave was shot down big time. LOL
“........Republican voters slightly exceeded their normal voter turnout with about 11 percent of registered voters coming to their polls. Democrats also raised their turnout, but only to 6.8 percent arrived.”
Let’s keep up the pressure to assure such turnout continues in November.
Is FR officially OK with Ted Cruz now? Asking for a friend.
The voter motivation to preserve our Republic, and to preserve our 2A right of self-defense, and to strengthen our borders is greater than the motivation to follow the fake scare-based and fake race-based "divisity" (just made that one up) instructions of community organizers.
Simple calculation. Add up the entire votes from every candidate other than Ted Cruz - both Republican & Democrat and that sum is less than Ted accrued.
Of course, there’s the election in November. So it’s not over.
I posted this on another threat it shows trends.

They keep spinning
So he was being a drama queen again? Seriously? I still say he needs to be selling used Kia’s and Hyundai’s in Boca...
I don’t think that there’s a blue wave... I think you’ll see some R seats flipping, but no big numbers...
You didn’t read it did you
If you want President Trump's "America First" immigration policies enacted into law, support Senator Cruz.
If you want President Trump's "America First" trade policies enacted into law, support Senator Cruz.
If you want President Trump's "America First" border security policies enacted into law, support Senator Cruz.
If you support President Trump's desire to Make America Great Again, support Senator Cruz.
A vote for anyone other than
Trump Cruz is a vote for Hillary Burrito Boy.
If you want to see President Trump impeached and removed from office ... Burrito Boy is for you.
If you're not a complete idiot ...
