Weekend Results: Democrats & Republican Candidates

by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Weekend Results: Democrats: Democrats went to the polls over the weekend in Kansas, Louisiana, Maine and Nebraska. Bernie Sanders won three states, while Hillary Clinton won only Louisiana.

But Clinton's crushing win in the Bayou State (71% to 23%) offset her losses elsewhere. Clinton and Sanders essentially split the delegates up for grabs -- 64 for Sanders and 62 for Clinton. In the race for the Democrat presidential nomination, Clinton leads the overall delegate count 1,130 to 499.

Clinton's Extremism On Gas & Guns - Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders squared off last night in a CNN debate in Flint, Michigan. I hope the American people were paying attention.

If you are enjoying cheap gas prices right now, you can thank the American energy industry and fracking technology in particular. Fracking allowed the U.S. to become one of the world's top oil and natural gas producers.

But just like Obama's promise to bankrupt the coal industry, Clinton essentially promised to end fracking, saying, "By the time we get through all of my conditions, I do not think there will be many places in America where fracking will continue to take place." If Hillary gets elected, say goodbye to cheap gas.

On gun control, Clinton said: "We have to try everything that works to . . . limit the numbers of people and the kinds of people who are given access to firearms."

The American people seem to disagree vehemently with that remark. Gun sales continue to set new records.

One of Clinton's suggestions for limiting access to guns was to sue gun manufacturers. Sanders shot back, saying, "What you're really talking about is ending gun manufacturing in America. I don't agree with that."

Whoa! Was that the socialist candidate standing up for an American business?

Weekend Results: Republicans: The results from this weekend's contests in Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine and Puerto Rico awarded 69 delegates to Sen. Cruz, 53 to Donald Trump, 41 to Marco Rubio and 10 to John Kasich.

The Kansas results may offer one possible explanation for why Donald Trump unexpectedly abandoned last week's CPAC conference. Initially, it appeared as though Trump might sweep all four states. He was up 12 points in Kansas two weeks ago, and he had an average lead of 16 points in Louisiana.

But a Kansas poll last week found Trump's lead was cut in half. He ended up losing Kansas by 25 points, and he narrowly edged out Sen. Cruz in Kentucky (3 points) and Louisiana (4 points.) And even though Trump had the endorsement of Governor Paul LePage, Sen. Cruz unexpectedly won Maine by 13 points.

While the weekend results helped to narrow the gap, Donald Trump maintains a clear lead in the overall delegate totals:Trump 384
Cruz 300
Rubio 151
Kasich 37
The odds are increasing that no GOP candidate will arrive at the Republican National Convention this summer with an outright majority of delegates. There is increasing speculation of a brokered convention, which could be a disaster.

The GOP Is Shattering - Former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan had a brilliant column in the Wall Street Journal this weekend warning that the 2016 primary contest was exposing fault lines in the GOP and threatening to shatter the Party of Lincoln and Reagan. Responding to the establishment's threats to form a new party if Donald Trump is the nominee, Noonan wrote:"Do they understand what they're ending? Did they ever? It started in 1860. Its first great figure was a man called Lincoln. 'We'll start a new party and call it Fred,' they tweet. 'We'll be the party in exile.' Implicitly: 'And I and my friends will run it.' Like little boys knocking over building blocks. And they say Donald Trump is careless.

"But we are witnessing history. Something important is ending. It is hard to believe what replaces it will be better. No one knows where this goes. The top of the party and the bottom have split. They disagree on the essentials. . .

"If trends continue . . . Mr. Trump will win or come very close to winning by the convention in July. If party forces succeed in finagling him out of the nomination his supporters will bolt, which will break the party. . .

"If, on the other hand, Mr. Trump is given the crown in Cleveland, party political figures, operatives, loyalists, journalists and intellectuals, not to mention sophisticated suburbanites and, God knows, donors will themselves bolt. That is a smaller but not insignificant group. . . Party leaders and thinkers should take note: It's easier for a base to hire or develop a flashy new establishment than it is for an establishment to find itself a new base."
I was on Fox Business today making the case for unity in November. For those who can't yet bring themselves to support the party's nominee in November, I have just three words for you: "PRESIDENT HILLARY CLINTON." You can watch my interview here.
