Donald Trump has won a third straight primary victory in the Nevada caucuses, according to US media, cementing a lead that could soon be insurmountable in the Republican presidential race.
Early results on Wednesday showed Trump, who had been expected to win by a large margin, leading the pack of candidates with about 42 percent of the vote.
Marco Rubio was projected by Fox News to come in second with about 30 percent, edging out Ted Cruz who only received 16 percent in Nevada.
Both men, however, were far ahead of John Kasich and Ben Carson, according to early results.
The race for the Republican nomination now moves on to next week’s Super Tuesday, when a dozen states will hold presidential primaries.
