Washington State analysis

The Washington delegate rules are here.

The Washington primary is on May 24.

Each of Washingtons 10 congressional districts give 2 delegates to the first-place winner and 1 to the second-place winner.

14 at-large delegates are awarded proportionately.

Let’s say that Trump wins 42% of the vote, and he wins 5 of the 10 districts (losing the other 5 to Kasich).

This gives Trump 15 district delegates and six at-large delegates, for a total of 21 out of 44 delegates.

In my previous post, I had Trump at 1,036 delegates after Oregon.

Trump has now gained an additional 21 delegates and stands at 1,057 delegates.

  1. With Washington and Oregon, I think you might be underestimating the Idaho-ness of the eastern portions of the state. Seemslikely Cruz will not be shut out.

  2. I’m in heavily Hispanic central Washington State. Like most areas with a lot of minorities I think that Trump will do well in this district. A lot of people I talk to here in Yakima plan on voting for him.

  3. I’m a lapsed Republican in Seattle firmly in the closet about my peculiar retrograde reactionary views.

    Anybody have any idea how I can,

    1) Support Trump in a meaningful way that actually makes a difference and influences the awful freaks in this horrible leftopia?
    2) Do this discreetly without ruining my life and alienating all the intolerant progressive leftist jerks whose approval and cooperation I depend on in my daily life?
    3) Get involved to an extent that I have a chance to become a Washington State Trump Delegate?

    I used to joke that Seattle is more of an oppressive one-party rule than in East Germany where I used to live. I was wrong. In addition to the flaky blinkered bleedy heart Democrats, they also like to elect Socialists and Greens.

    • Wear some Make America Great Again gear — hat or shirt. Seriously, get them used to seeing it. They’ll get over it and treat you civilly. You must wear it with confidence and a sense of detachment like it’s no big deal.

    • Discourage people from voting for Clinton. Stress her Wall Street ties, corporate kickbacks, war mongering, anything else that Sanders has knocked her on the head about. Recommend the Green Party candidates as a clear conscience vote, if necessary. Since Washington is a firm Blue State, you can say, why not vote your conscience? You’re not going to convince an “intolerant progressive leftist jerk” to vote for Trump, so settle for what’s achievable. And don’t be rude or braying about it.

      Also be realistic and understand that this would be for your own personal satisfaction. When millions of people are voting, there’s really nothing that one person can do to affect the outcome, except for the candidate himself.
