How the Media Covered It: The Washington Examiner (Lean Right bias) reported that the results “came as little surprise — Trump was widely expected to win by a large margin, as he did in almost every other contest so far.” The Associated Press (Lean Left bias) reported that the results “puts Trump back on the winning track, which was briefly interrupted on Sunday when Haley notched her first victory of the campaign in the District of Columbia’s primary.”
