Puerto Rico victory for Rubio
As predicted, Rubio won Puerto Rico, and it was a massive victory indeed. Although the vote isn’t completely counted, Rubio has more than 70% of the vote. This proves the truth of the logic that Puerto Ricans would prefer to vote for a guy who also has brown skin and literally speaks their language.
There will be two takeaways for the bigger picture.
1. Everyone will say that Puerto Rico says nothing about Rubio’s chances in any other primary, because of Puerto Rico’s very unique demographics. Rubio gains no momentum here.
2. The GOPe are [in ectasy] imagining the massive victory Rubio would have if he won the nomination, because 70% of the Hispanics on the mainland would vote for him. (I am not saying that scenario has the slightest bit of merit, I am just speculating, pretty accurately I think, as to what the GOPe is thinking about right now.)
