Both favorites for the presidential run have been outscored in Wisconsin, respectively by Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz.
On the Republican side, Ted Cruz gathers 48.3% of the votes whereas «only » 35.1% gave their voices to the rich businessman, Donald Trump. Thanks to this victory, Cruz slows Trump in his will to get an absolute majority of delegates before July. According to Cruz, things are going to be much different : « I’m more and more convinced that we will gather the 1,237 delegates required to win the Republican investiture ».
On the other hand, Sanders also beats Clinton quite easily with 56.5% of the Wisconsin voters. Clinton, with 43.2%, is once again unfortunate facing a young population.
Despite these bad series of results for the two favorites, which could be seen as a momentum swing, they still remain untouchable for some time, even for their closest opponents.
Next stop will be in Wyoming, where we will see things even clearer between the possibility of an incredible comeback by one of the outsiders or a comfortable win for the presidential favorites. Answer tomorrow !
