The results are in for the North Carolina GOP Primary.
Bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump has been declared the winner, but by a much smaller margin that the most recent polls predicted.
The most recent Real Clear Politics average had Trump defeating constitutional conservative Ted Cruz by 12. 3- percent, 41.3-percent to 29-percent. Trump’s margin of victory was actually much smaller.
The final numbers out of North Carolina puts Trump in first place at 40.6-percent and Cruz in second with 36.7, a difference of only 3.9-percent.
