Washington, April 27: The anti-Donald Trump voice in this primary season in the US is not looking bright anymore. While the New York real-estate tycoon scored a cent per cent success in the final Super Tuesday in April on April 26, exit polls showed that the Republican Party was also warming to his getting the GOP nomination.

According to the CNN, less number of Republican voters said they were casting protest votes and Trump is the only of the three candidates in fray who the majority of Republicans in states with exit polls---Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Maryland---said they would back in the November 8 general elections.

Among Trump's supporters are the college-educated voters and white evangelicals.

Trump's rival candidates Ted Cruz and John Kaisch and #NeverTrump movement have been eyeing to derail Trump, who is leading the race for the nomination with 950 delegates (required 1,237), at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland between July 18-21 this year.

However, as the CNN said, an overwhelming 70 per cent of voters in Pennsylvania said they want to see the individual who wins most support in the primary to get the nomination and not, as the exit poll sought to know, the "best candidate".
