Donald Trump wins Nevada, praises the ‘poorly educated’

Eclipsing the poll predictions Donald Trump won big in Nevada over Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz with almost 46% of the vote. Trump made a victory speech in front of a rowdy crowd dressed in “Make America Great Again” hats and t-shirts at his Las Vegas hotel, and expressed his love for everyone from casino mogul Steve Wynn to the “poorly educated.”

Trump “offered up” some more information about his plans should he be elected president,including keeping the Guantanamo Bay detention facility open and loading it up with “bad dudes.”

Trump said that “We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated. We’re the smartest people, we’re the most loyal people, and you know what I’m happy about? Because I’ve been saying it for a long time. 46% were the Hispanics—46%, No. 1 one with Hispanics. I’m really happy about that…”

“So I’m very proud of you, this is an amazing night. I love the country, I love the country. We’re going in the wrong direction. We’re going to keep—as you know Gitmo, we’re keeping that open, and we’re going to load it up with bad dudes. We’re going to load it up w a lot of bad dudes out there. We’re going to have our borders nice and strong. We’re going to build the wall, you know that. We’re going to build the wall. And I have a lot of respect from Mexico, and you just heard we won Hispanics. But let me tell you Mexico is going to pay for the wall, right? It’s going to happen. It’s going to happen. They know it. I know it. We all know it.”
Trump’s reference to the “poorly educated” jabbed at a stereotype presented from a December CNN/ORC poll says Trump “runs significantly stronger among less-educated, less-affluent voters, and performs particularly well among voters in the 50-64 age range.”
Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker advised Cruz and Rubio to take down Trump by attempting to “make a clear case” to low-educated Trump voters of “who he really is.” Parker added they think “finally somebody is speaking for them but the truth is he is not.”
Trump received more caucus votes than Cruz and Rubio combined: Trump 45.9%, Rubio 23.9%, Cruz at 21.4%. Ben Carson is at 4.8% and John Kasich at only 3.6%.
