Following his decisive victory in the Nevada Republican caucus Tuesday night, front-runner Donald Trump thanked his supporters in a victory speech, including the “poorly educated.”
Trump, who won with 46 percent of the vote, said he loves the “poorly educated” and bragged about winning their vote.

“We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated,” Trump told his rousing crowd. “We’re the smartest people, we’re the most loyal people.”
Trump’s Nevada win was his third in a row. On Saturday, the Manhattan mogul won the South Carolina GOP primary. Previously, Trump won the nation’s first primary in New Hampshire. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is the only other Republican candidate to win a primary or caucus thus far, as he took the gold in Iowa.
The next time Republicans will have the opportunity to cast their votes will be March 1, when 11 states will be up for grabs.
