#1 Heilemann isn’t willing to predict Trump’s political death over this

There must be desperate rejoicing and celebration going on across the establishment. Look we're committing suicide for November!!!

Get a grip. You have a very serious problem with the population and you're not paying attention to the issues that gave Trump his momentum. You have no more concern for the 'consent of the governed' than that other cabal.

#2 Establishment isn't any more fond of Cruz than it is of Trump. Cruz is, after all, the guy who called McConnell a liar on the Senate floor.

#3 Anyone keeping count of the various events that spell doom for Trump? Seems he has survived a large number of them so far.

#4 There are five candidates left in the race. Four of them are career, life-long denizens of the political class (and Cruz supporters who object need to tell me the last time Cruz was not earning his keep in the political realm - and yes, litigating in the Supreme Court is a political occupation).

Trump is the lone player who has not effectively devoted his life, full-time, to politics.

Four of the candidates, if they become President, will wake up each morning thinki9ng "How can I get reelected, and when is my next fund-raising gig?" - because that is how political schmucks are - period.

For better or for worse, I think that Trump will wake up each morning saying "Well, one more day to try to salvage this unholy mess - what can I do today, to try to make America great again?"

I cannot imagine Trump - or anybody - "fixing" America - a country with 100 million parasites living off the sweat of 47% of the population. But - at least Trump will TRY - and I'd like to see him get that chance.

There have thus far been 29 GOP primary contest that awarded delegates. 20 of those contests were NOT caucuses - and Trump has won 16 of those. The other four were Texas, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Idaho.

And - of states with black populations above 8%, Trump has won 16 out of 18 - Texas and Ohio being the other two. Wisconsin is 6.7% black - so I am guessing it will not go to Trump. But - he is likely to sweep the six remaining April contests - out of them, only Rhode Island has a black population below 10%. Unfortunately, only Delaware among them is "winner-take-all" for delegates.
