33. A lesson many didn't learn

 

No candidate is owed votes, they need to earn them. At the end of the day the winner is the one who convinced more people to vote for them than the other guy.

There will always be crossover votes, fortunately in 2016 it was low (Especially compared to 2008, about half) the total was more, but just missed is several places.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
