My Take: Election Reflection


I have been reflecting on yesterday's primary election results.

I am not amused by the choices being made by the majority of the voters,  but I think I understand what is happening.

People are voting to remove those who have been obstructionists for the past 8 years. No one who is part of the Republican establishment is likely to get elected. 

I found it interesting the Cruz garnered 3 additional delegates and Kasich received 5. Trump won 109. That qualifies as a landslide.

The harder the Republican establishment campaigns against Trump, the more delegates he receives. The voters are sending a message.

It could be an interesting election in November. 

I, personally, am having a problem supporting someone who uses personal attacks, ethnicity, and gender as a basis for campaign remarks. I don't understand why so many Americans continue to support someone who says the things that he does, except that it is a backlash against the Republican Party establishment.

And then one the Democratic side--I don't understand the appeal of one of the candidates over the other. I look at them totally opposite of the majority of the voters.

My Take--that is why we have elections.
