Donald Trump needs to reach a majority on a first ballot to win the Republican nomination, he has little chance on a second or subsequent ballot at the Republican National Convention.
Tuesday in New York Trump took a giant step towards that end. It is no surprise that Trump won NY, but the margin that he won it by might have been. He received about 60% of the vote, and Kasich might have picked up 5 delegates, while Cruz goose-egged. Donald Trump did much better than I predicted, he looks like he will pocket 90 delegates when all is said and done.
Next week, the rest of the Mid-Atlantic and North East region will go to the polls, and Donald will do very well then too. PA and MD will be in play.
In the west, Trump will not have such an easy road. Cruz will easily win most of the remaining western states, and his support is pretty strong in California, too. This means that for the first time in my life, Indiana will play a “yuge” role in a primary election ballot on May 3rd. Since Indiana is an open primary state, it is a good thing that Hillary is facing a strong challenge from socialist democrat Bernie Sanders. That should keep the cross-over vote down.
The Hoosier State will likely decide the next Republican Nominee.
Please fill in the little oval for Ted Cruz!
Welcome to the Trump Empire Strikes Back TAkes!
Sanders’ supporters can be a real wild card if he somehow makes it to the general. I’ll pray for them.
I do remember a cancelled hour with Cruz on Hannity when FNC played an endless 4 hour loop of a cancelled Trump event at UIC.
Just three years, four months ago, Trump was not registered in any party. He was still donating plenty to liberal Democrats and Establishment Republicans. That is what the Establishment does.
Trump’s “Special Counsel” Michael Cohen is a Registered Democrat
KING: You’re not going to march with the tea party? TRUMP: I don’t march with the tea party. …Trump went on to defend the TARP bailouts: “If they didn’t stuff the banks with money, we’d be in depression number two right now, Larry … Trump, the guy who hosted two fundraisers for Charlie Crist in 2009. He donated to Harry Reid over Sharron Angle in 2010. Trump, the guy who donated $50,000 to make Rahm Emanuel the mayor of Chicago. In the founding days of the Tea Party, Donald Trump was exactly what they were fighting against… and now some of those adherents have embraced him fully.
I’ve long suspected that Kasich’s end game would be aiming towards angling as a Veep candidate, there is no other explanation for not suspending his campaign. While I’m not sure about Trump delegates who will sit on the Convention Rules Committee, I’m fairly certain that the Cruz delegates who will be there will not agree to substantially altering Rule 40B, which could open up the nomination process to anyone.
“John Kasich has decided to bypass any attempt to blur his rationale for staying in the race, and is now openly auditioning for Donald Trump’s Vice President slot,”
Absolutely the best greatest Trump hits compilation that I’ve seen so far this election cycle.

Over 60,000 Republicans participated in the CO process. 40% of those did so for the first time.
From last August concerning the Colorado caucus process, and dumping the straw poll. If dropping the straw poll would have benefitted anyone last August, it would have been Jeb Bush.
Donald Trump is crying about losing delegates and being cheated by the RNC, the “Establishment,” and Ted Cruz. His fans are up in arms over it. The reality is that they should be questioning their candidate’s ability to adapt to the role of President of the United States based upon the complete and utter incompetence that he’s demonstrating in this campaign.
Trump is getting exactly what he won. Delegates bound to him for a single vote.
Trump “The ‘King of Whoppers,” when the Donald dominated FactCheck.org’s 2015 annual review of political falsehoods:
In the 12 years of FactCheck.org’s existence, we’ve never seen his match. He stands out not only for the sheer number of his factually false claims, but also for his brazen refusals to admit error when proven wrong.
If you believe that Trump’s threats against Ford had any effect on their future plans, I have some swamp-land in Arizona I’d like to sell you.
Wanna buy a Dodge RAM or GM truck instead? Look at the VIN. If it starts with a “3” it is made in Mexico. A lot of them are.
Here is what you need to do to get banned from CNN AND MSNBC. It must be getting cold in Hades. The above is a mediamatters link.
Trump people are promising retribution if things don’t go their way. They are promising “Armageddon.”
“Our liberties are not determined by the fickle passions of the majority but by the steady rule of law.”
He actively worked against the TEA party
Cohen reminds me of a mob lawyer.
Putin endorsed him too
If you are pro-life, you cannot vote for Donald Trump. … If the man is not a covert supporter of legalized abortion, he has at least thought about the issue so rarely and so incompletely that he cannot articulate a coherent sentence about it
“If not for Cruz, Trump would inevitably be the nominee. Yet he’s a weak front-runner, having lost about a dozen contests to Cruz prior to the Wisconsin primary.”
“Trump Network” was a failed vitamin hustle. He thought he could do Herbal Life with a Trump name-tag
From “The Art of the Deal”. Be outrageous, bold and stir up controversy.
“People want to believe that something is the biggest … greatest and … spectacular.”
Well, I think many. I mean, when we get into the Bible, I think many, so many. And some people, look, an eye for an eye, you can almost say that. That’s not a particularly nice thing. But you know, if you look at what’s happening to our country, I mean, when you see what’s going on with our country, how people are taking advantage of us, and how they scoff at us and laugh at us. And they laugh at our face, and they’re taking our jobs, they’re taking our money, they’re taking the health of our country. And we have to be firm and have to be very strong. And we can learn a lot from the Bible, that I can tell you.
Now being called “the Trump Report” by many
The nomination process “is a multilevel Rubik’s Cube,” says Jeff Roe, Cruz’s campaign manager. “Trump thought it was a golf ball — you just had to whack it.”
His number one foreign policy advisor is, himself! He has a “good brain” and he watches all the shows, you know, just like the rest of us.
The level of Trump’s incoherence in this answer easily bests anything that Hillary has spit out, and that is sayin’ something!
HIATT: So what do you think China’s aims are in the South China Sea?
TRUMP: Well I know China very well, because I deal with China all the time. I’ve done very well. China’s unbelievably ambitious. China is, uh… I mean, when I deal with China, you know, I have the Bank of America building, I’ve done some great deals with China. I do deals with them all the time on, you know, selling apartments, and, you know, people say ‘oh that’s not the same thing.’ The level of… uh, the largest bank in the world, 400 million customers, is a tenant of mine in New York, in Manhattan. The biggest bank in China. The biggest bank in the world.
China has got unbelievable ambitions. China feels very invincible. We have rebuilt China. They have drained so much money out of our country that they’ve rebuilt China. Without us, you wouldn’t see the airports and the roadways and the bridges; I mean, the George Washington Bridge is like, that’s like a trinket compared to the bridges that they’ve built in China. We don’t build anymore, and it, you know, we had our day. But China, if you look at what’s going on in China, you know, they go down to seven percent or eight percent and it’s like a national catastrophe. Our GDP is right now zero. Essentially zero.
“If Satan had the lead on him and was one delegate away from being nominated as our candidate, and Donald Trump was the alternative, I might vote for Donald Trump,”

…the aborted baby, who’s heart was still beating, was kept it alive to harvest its brain.
Seriously, how on EARTH did we reach a point in our society where we’re more concerned about whether the baby in the video was the real aborted baby or a miscarried baby (that was the same age and gestation as the aborted baby) than the fact that Planned Parenthood cut into its face TO HARVEST ITS BRAIN?
There are no coincidences
New Jersey has to rethink its budget because one guy moved. I guess they need to recruit a new pocket to pick.
A new Drudge alternative.
No real surprise here. The insurance death spiral has already begun.
