Well folks, it’s over…
Donald Trump is gonna be the Republican nominee for president of these United States.
Tuesday night sealed the deal!
Trump not only won all five eastern states but crushed it.
He took down Ted Cruz and for good. Trump took every state by huge margins, while Cruz came in last in every state but one.
John Kasich was also a no show.
They both are now toast.
Now even the old guard fuddy-duddies at the GOP will have to back the Donald. He’s just too popular and will likely get to 1237. This will be close to becoming official after Trump takes Indiana next week.
Frankly, there’s no path to winning the nomination even at a brokered convention for Cruz or Kasich anymore. They’re just not electable in a general election and have no support to speak of.
And now that we’re done, can we dispense with all the silly, “Oh Cruz or Kasich can beat Hillary better according to some poll, while and Trump can’t?”
What a crock, that always was pure b.s.
Those numbers were and are impossible since neither of them can get their voters to vote for them even in Republican primaries.
The flip side of which is that Donald Trump will be a formable foe for Hillary and Bill come November. And make no mistake, this election will be a battle.
Next up: Who will Hillary pick for her vice president?
And who will Trump ride with as his co star?
Clinton should look at Bernie Sanders to be her VP if she hopes to win this thing. In some ways – with younger voters – he’s more popular than she is or Trump. Without Bernie the Dems may not get enough voters out to thump Trump!
Sanders is the reason Democrats have had more voters out than the Republicans thus far. If Clinton puts Bernie on the ticket it likely would ensure the win.
Trump’s in a tougher spot.
Because there is no clear second person that makes him a winner. Continue reading
