Media inflating Trump's delegate totals?
In this reality TV presidential race, all media should be looked at with some measure of skepticism. There is no single news outlet that can be viewed as absolutely trustworthy, it would seem.Ted Cruz seems to have a better grasp of the delegate situation and probably knows better which delegates he can count on. He does keep surprising the media and Trump at the conventions doing the selections.
That’s the claim of Senator Ted Cruz, who says the media are inflating Donald Trump’s actual delegate count.“The AP’s numbers are bogus,” Cruz said. “Because what they’ve done is they’ve given all of the unbound delegates in Pennsylvania to Donald Trump. Those delegates are not his. That’s just reporters who want to run up his total. If you actually look at the bound delegates, Donald has about 50 fewer.”
Cruz’s claim is based on the delegate tracker used by outlets like the AP and the Washington Examiner, which he feels is untrustworthy.
