Clinton, Trump Top Palm Beach County

BOCA RATON, FL ( — The breakdown is now available from the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections and there’s no question: Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump are favorites in the county.

Donald Trump took 52.13% of the Republican vote with 66,065 votes. Marco Rubio, perhaps surprisingly, logged 30,836 votes for 24.33%. Not exactly a hotbed of evangelicals — Ted Cruz fared poorly in Palm Beach County with 15,311 votes or 12.08 percent.

Hillary Clinton soundly pummeled Bernie Sanders. Clinton logged 103,369 votes in Palm Beach County for 71.47 percent. Bernie Sanders received 39,314 votes for 27.18 percent. But, Sanders came in first in the competition of “which candidate has the same name as the uncle of most Boca Raton residents.” As it turns out, 72.8 percent of all Boca Raton residents have an uncle named “Bernie.”
