Three delegate contests post-Chicago, TRUMP EPIC FAILS in all three. Coverage? [View all]

Results of the Rep. GUAM delegate election Saturday (9 delegates total): 1 Cruz, 8 uncommitted

Results of Rep. Wyoming Caucus (12 delegates): Cruz 9 delegates, Rubio 1 delegate, uncommitted 1 delegate, Trump 1 delegate. (Wyoming awards more delegates later)

Results in Rep. Washington, D.C. (19 delegates): Rubio 10 delegates, Kasich 9 delegates.

TOTAL OF ALL THREE (40 DELEGATES):

RUBIO: 11
CRUZ: 10
UNCOMMITTED: 9
KASICH: 9
TRUMP: 1[ /B]

So out of three contests post-Chicago, Trump only got one out of 40 delegates, which is a new low for him. Yet, the media claims to be against Trump but it still presents this as a Cruz or Rubio victory without even mentioning Trump. This allows Trump to go into Tuesday as strong as possible and stronger than he deserves.

Can you imagine if Bernie, or even Hillary, got only one delegate in three contests on the same day with a respectable 40 delegates in play.
They would definitely be talk about candidate weakness, whether justified or not. I don't see that talk about Trump, does anybody?

I am not saying that Trump has no arguments that these areas are not his strengths, blah blah blah, but why isn't anybody arguing the other side in the media?


Personally I think the media supports Trump much more than they let on, and they are especially keen to divide up the otherwise powerful potential anti-TPP alliance between Sanders and Trump supporters on the basis of racial tensions.
