What’s interesting is that Trump’s support came from the rural counties.
The counties around cities, including Kansas City, Springfield, and the Columbia/Jefferson metropolitan area, all went for Cruz.
Heavily populated St. Louis County was almost tied. You would have thought that the Ferguson stuff would have given Trump a greater boost.

It should also be noted that despite Missouri having a completely open primary, where even Democrats are free to vote in the Republican primary, Cruz strongly outperformed the one poll which showed that Trump had a strong 7-point lead.
This indicates that Trump is going to lose to Cruz in all of the states where I have predicted Cruz is strong. Those states are: North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska Montana, Utah.
