After sweeping all five primaries that occurred Tuesday – Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania – Donald Trump has 987 delegates, Cruz has 562 with 622 remaining.
Ted Cruz was mathematically eliminated on Tuesday night.
There are fewer delegates remaining than we originally projected because the delegates in Wyoming, Colorado and North Dakota were allocated in corrupt voter-less elections. But our April 2nd projections for Trump and Cruz were very, very close.
Trump was awarded another 40 Pennsylvania delegates on Wednesday which brings his total to 987.
Donald Trump only needs 250 more delegates to secure the Republican nomination.
