With 95.3% of precincts reporting, the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor came in with 36.6% of the Michigan GOP vote.

Ted Cruz , who was in third place most of the evening, soared into second place, narrowly defeated RINO Ohio Governor John Kasich, 24.8% to 24.3%, a reversal of poll predictions that predicted a second place finish for Kasich.

Cruz reportedly only spent $2,000 in the state.

Marco Rubio is in last place at only 9.3%.
