After Ted Cruz swept the 34 delegates up for grabs in Colorado, the Trump campaign and supporters are crying foul. Matt Drudge, creator of Drudge Report, is leading the charge, as seen in a comment he posted Sunday on Twitter:


Out of a total of 37 delegates, Cruz got all 13 at-large delegates available on Saturday at the Colorado GOP convention after winning all 21 delegates awarded at the congressional district conventions throughout the week, according to The Hill. The remaining three delegates are reserved for state party officials.

The Trump campaign was shut out and is not happy about it, but critics argue the results show Cruz’s organizational advantage over his rival.

And the system in place in Colorado was no secret, as noted by Twitchy.com — the Denver Post reported back in August of 2015:

Colorado will not vote for a Republican candidate for president at its 2016 caucus after party leaders approved a little-noticed shift that may diminish the state’s clout in the most open nomination contest in the modern era.

The GOP executive committee has voted to cancel the traditional presidential preference poll after the national party changed its rules to require a state’s delegates to support the candidate that wins the caucus vote.

The move makes Colorado the only state so far to forfeit a role in the early nomination process, according to political experts, but other caucus states are still considering how to adapt to the new rule.


In the end, democracy can be messy at times. Every state has its own rules and more than one social media user pointed out that the Trump campaign should have known the rules in Colorado — or at least complained about them beforehand. Others believe the system in place is not fair.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
