A Path to the Nomination


For John, BLUFOh oh.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Mr David Wasserman, at the Five Thirty Eight Blog, told us, on Friday, the 11th of March, "Don’t Sleep On Illinois And Missouri — They Could Help Make Trump Unstoppable".

The lede:

March 15 has long looked like the most pivotal date on the GOP primary calendar.  And although Florida and Ohio are hogging the spotlight because they are the sites of Marco Rubio and John Kasich’s “last stands,” don’t forget that two other states could help Donald Trump become essentially unstoppable in his quest for the nomination:  Illinois and Missouri.
On the other hand, Rasmussen tells us that Mr Trump could be strong as a third party candidate:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 36% of Likely Republican Voters say they are likely to vote for Trump if he runs as a third-party presidential candidate. That’s unchanged from last July when we first asked the question, but it now includes 24% who say they are Very Likely to vote for Trump if he runs independently, up six points from 18% in the previous survey.
Is this "heads I win and tails you lose"?

For me this has been the most interesting Presidential Primary Season since 1972.
