The reports are coming in from Wisconsin; Trump supporters are seeing their votes being switched to Cruz.
unitedmediapublishing.com reports: People voting for Donald Trump in today’s Wisconsin primary are seeing their ballots changed to show a vote for Ted Cruz.
Calls began flooding in early this morning to Madison-based ABC affiliate WKOW with reports of voting machines across the state switching votes entered for GOP frontrunner Donald Trump to his establishment counterpart Ted Cruz. The station has spoken with multiple witnesses and is in the process of verifying statements from Burnett, Clark, Dane, Polk and Portage counties.
According to one witness identified as Jeremy Rogers from Burnett county, “It was the strangest thing. The machine literally would not allow me to vote Trump. I have been a Trump supporter since he launched his campaign and have absolutely no reason to vote for Cruz. I have heard the same from several others coming out of the voting booth. Seems like the establishment will stop at nothing to keep this out of the hands of Trump.”
Brian James, a volunteer and self-professed Cruz supporter who is overseeing the voting at the Burnett county location, had this to say, “These allegations have no basis in reality. If these Trump supporters cannot figure out how to use a voting machine maybe they shouldn’t be voting.”
All eyes have been focused on Wisconsin as many pundits view the state as the last best chance in the “Stop Trump” movement. Members of the establishment have done everything possible to stop Trump from earning the 1237 delegates needed to secure the parties nomination during the first ballot at the Cleveland Convention and Wisconsin is seen as crucial to the cause.
