Yesterday was a bloodbath for Trump and his supporters in Georgia, as Trump got about one third of the delegates up for grabs at conventions around the state, with the rest going to Ted Cruz. Once again, Trump will get all the votes to which he is entitled as long as these delegates are bound, but afterwards it looks like he will continue to slide on subsequent votes.
Things got especially testy in Georgia’s 7th Congressional district when Trump supporters bizarrely stole the American flag that was posted there and walked out.

Again, there is no suggestion that the Cruz campaign did anything illegal improper. The Trump camp just lost, and wasn’t prepared to deal with that reality.
In the event that Trump does get the nomination, I don’t really want to see how these people will react when Trump loses 45 states.
