2016 Texas Presidential Primary Betting Odds
Texas, as one of the largest states in the US, holds a strong influence during presidential primary season. Both the republican and democratic primaries take place on the first Super Tuesday, March 1st. Their early placing on the schedule ensures their votes count when determining the nominee. Gallup classifies Texas as a ‘red leaning state’. This means that the Texas republican party has more than a 5 point but less than a 10 point advantage over the democrats. However, the state has voted republican in the last seven presidential elections, has a republican controlled state legislature, and the last two out of three governors has been republican. 24 out of 36 of the state’s House representatives are also republican. In our books this makes the state a solid red state. The primaries in the state of Texas are open, meaning voters can cross party lines if they so choose.
2016 Texas Republican Primary
As Ted Cruz’ home state, Texas is definitely favoring him at this point. Polling placed him ahead of his opponents by double digits, reflecting that Texans are in his camp. There are 155 delegates at stake for republicans in Texas. The delegates are awarded proportionally to candidates who meet the 20% minimum threshold. If a candidate earns greater than 50% of the vote, then they will be awarded all 155 delegates. Many republicans are hopeful that Cruz will be able to pull that off in his home state.
2016 Texas Republican Primary Results
Ted Cruz was the big winner in the Texas republican primary, earning 43.8% of the votes. He earned 104 delegates, while Trump came in second with 26.7% of the votes and 48 delegates. Rubio was in third place with 17.7% of the votes and 3 delegates earned. Unfortunately Cruz did not exceed the 50% mark, largely because the conservative vote seems to have been split between himself and Rubio. Despite Cruz” win in Texas, he has withdrawn from the presidential race as has Rubio and Kasich. Donald Trump is the presumed republican nominee at this time.
