Cruz wins Oklahoma amid record turnout; results by Congressional District


Ted Cruz surged back to win Oklahoma's presidential primary last night. Cruz greatly over-performing polling averages, which had Trump leading by 11.4% (at 32.7%), Rubio in second (21.3%) and Cruz in third (20.3%). Instead, Cruz took 34.37%, Trump collapsed to 28.32% and Rubio came in with 26.02%. The public polling was either total junk, or Cruz made a huge last-minute surge -- either or both may be true.

According to the Oklahoma State Election Board, the vote total was a record setter. 795,096 total votes were cast, breaking the Presidential Primary record of 752,261 in 2008. In addition, the GOP total of 459,542 votes beat the previous single-party record the Democrats set in 2008 of 417,207.
