News that doesn't receive the necessary attention.

Thursday, March 3, 2016

To Mitt Romney's eternal embarrassment, Donald Trump received 45,000 more votes in the Massachusetts Republican Primary in 2016 than Romney did in the 2012 primary in his own state in which he'd served as Governor

2016 and 2012 Massachusetts Republican Primary results:

March 1, 2016: Trump: 311,313

March 6, 2012: Romney: 266,313

2012: CNN: "REPUBLICAN PRIMARY March 6, 2012"
 
"Semi-open primary: Registered party members may only vote in their own party's primary, but independents may vote in either contest."
