    Randy Levine knows a thing or two about fair play — and the president of the New York Yankees baseball club tells Newsmax TV it will be three strikes and out for the Republican Party if it attempts to stop Donald Trump from becoming the GOP presidential nominee. "I think if that happens it would really be the end of the Republican Party. You would have so many disenfranchised and disaffected voters out there that it would just be very, very hard to put it all back together," Levine said Thursday on "The Steve Malzberg Show." "He by far has...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 4/26/2016 | Jim Hoft
    After sweeping all five primaries that occurred Tuesday – Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania – Donald Trump has 987 delegates, Cruz has 562 with 622 remaining. Ted Cruz was mathematically eliminated on Tuesday night. There are fewer delegates remaining than we originally projected because the delegates in Wyoming, Colorado and North Dakota were allocated in corrupt voter-less elections. But our April 2nd projections for Trump and Cruz were very, very close. Trump was awarded another 40 Pennsylvania delegates on Wednesday which brings his total to 987. Donald Trump only needs 250 more delegates to secure the Republican nomination.
  • Donald Trump could amass most primary votes in GOP history

    New York Post ^ | 4/28/2016 | Bob Fredericks
    Donald Trump will likely wind up winning the most primary votes of any GOP presidential candidate in modern history, the author of the influential Smart Politics blog told The Post on Wednesday. After convincing victories in Tuesday’s primaries in five East Coast states, Trump has roughly 10.1 million votes, about 200,000 more than Mitt Romney got during the entire 2012 primary campaign. And with the primaries ahead — including in populous states such as California, New Jersey and Indiana — the former “Apprentice” ­reality TV star should easily break the modern record of 10.8 million held by George W. Bush...

If your guy is the nominee for the Republican Party, he WILL lose in November, and YOU WILL OWN IT. Because I will NEVER vote for that statist socialist, parasitic, steaming pile of obama. Now, I've been told that JimRob is banning anyone who states publicly that they will not vote for trump. So be it....

    Business Insider ^ | 4/27/16 | Allan Smith
    Donald Trump swept through all five Northeastern and mid-Atlantic voting states on Tuesday, in a show of dominance unprecedented in his campaign for president. The Manhattan billionaire and GOP frontrunner won every single county in play — 107 total among Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Delaware, Maryland, and Connecticut. As a result, he won each of the 34 congressional districts in play. The East-Coast romp led to Trump pick up at least 110 delegates — more than 93% of the total in play. That total shattered even the rosiest projections of a successful night for Trump. MSNBC's Steve Kornacki projected that Trump...

    Hillary Clinton effectively sealed her nomination last night. And Donald Trump almost certainly did the same, winning five states by larger margins than the polls and the pundits expected. Why did Trump exceed expectations? Probably lots of small reasons added together. But I’ll call out a few from the field of persuasion. 1. Trump’s “lyin’ Ted” linguistic kill shot is working its magic. 2. The so-called “rigged” nomination process has energized voters against the establishment. (Calling the primary system “rigged” was one of Trump’s best persuasion moves of all time.) 3. Trump’s dominant win in New York state made him...

    More than two-thirds of Americans want the presidential nomination processes to be changed and more than half say the systems are “rigged,” a new poll found. The Reuters/Ipsos poll released Wednesday found that 51 percent of likely voters believe the primary system is “rigged” against some candidates. And 71 percent say parties should pick their presidential nominees with a direct vote, instead of using delegates. Twenty-seven percent said they did not understand how the primary process works, and 44 percent said they were unsure why delegates are involved at all. Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders...

    That his victories were not surprising is an indication of how Trump has taken command of the GOP race. Ted Cruz and John Kasich have become figures in his rear view mirror. The Cruz campaign, after winning in Wisconsin on April 5, has collapsed. Cruz is desperate. He now insists Trump can't beat Hillary Clinton. Only he can. This is not a convincing argument. "I consider myself the presumptive nominee," Trump said last night. "Absolutely." I think he's not quite there. If he wins in Indiana next week, he will be. And he's in a strong position to take the...

    A very classy, luxurious five-state landslide I suppose a #NeverTrumper can comfort himself with the notion that no one expected the five mid-Atlantic states that voted last night to be kind to the Cruz/Kasich alliance. But did anyone expect this? Trump easily defeated rivals John Kasich and Ted Cruz in all five states that held contests, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware, with a margin of victory rivaling that of his home state of New York a week ago. He was on a path to winning the vote in every single county in each state.

    Donald Trump has been projected as the winner of the Republican presidential primaries in Pennsylvania and Connecticut, victories that continued the New York real estate mogul’s dominance in contests along the East Coast. Those projections were made by Edison Research as polls closed at 8 p.m., and they relied on exit polls. In Maryland, the Associated Press projected Trump and Hillary Clinton as winners, even though a few polling places in West Baltimore will remain open until 9 p.m.

    If this Tuesday is as good as last Tuesday for Trump, it is hard to see how he can be stopped. Coming out of two consecutive Tuesdays with overwhelming victories, Trump will be able to make three powerful arguments. First, he is simply going to have the delegates to win the nomination on the first ballot at GOP convention, so all the maneuvering over delegate selection and efforts to put in chameleon delegates who are bound to Trump but are really for another candidate will be irrelevant. Second, no one else is consolidating votes as the alternative. The gap between...

    For the past month, a media narrative has taken hold that something must be done to reform, simplify, streamline, and democratize the delegate selection system of the Republican presidential nomination process. Is our GOP presidential primary system rigged, meaning it is corrupt because it favors the establishment? Is it convoluted, arbitrary, arcane...and too often "voteless"? Is it wrong to allow "Trojan horse" delegates to change their vote on the second ballot of the national convention? Why do we have a separate election for delegates after we vote for candidates? The system is not rigged, convoluted, arbitrary, arcane, or voteless. It...

    As a direct consequence of the growing support for candidate Trump, and with looming electoral defeat on the horizon, the Ted Cruz campaign now places all its “never voter” efforts on stopping Donald Trump from winning Indiana. However, Donald Trump is also polling ahead of Cruz in Indiana – so the Cruz campaign approach throws a Hail-Mary. In an effort to improve fleeting chances, Team Cruz has struck a deal with the Kasich campaign. Team Kasich is to pull out of Indiana, and Team Cruz will give them free reign in New Mexico and Oregon.

    The scale of Donald Trump’s victory in New York turned him from frontrunner into presumptive Republican nominee. Trump is correct in asserting that a manipulated nomination defying the popular vote would be anathema to the Republican base. It would make Cleveland and the fall campaign chaotic and unmanageable. Second, Trump is probably going to win the nomination on the first ballot. Take a clear-eyed look at the numbers. After New York, Trump has 845 delegates. Cruz has 559, and Kasich has 147. So Trump is 139 delegates ahead of the other two combined. He is almost 300 delegates ahead of...

    Donald Trump might have rolled to 60 percent of the Republican vote in New York Tuesday night, but he came in a distant third in the big scheme of things nonetheless. Keep in mind, this is the candidate and the campaign that constantly pout about one-man one-vote and popular vote totals. They threaten to both call the lawyers about this concept and to riot in Cleveland over this. Thus, by Trump's own standards, Trump got thrashed in New York. Both Hillary and Bernie Sanders destroyed Trump in raw vote totals. I'm not saying Trump didn't win the N.Y. Republican primary...

    WASHINGTON -- Some Trump-obsessed, hysterical nitwits have overstated the case that the Republican Party may be on the verge of self-annihilation. "If Trump were the nominee," said one, "the GOP would cease to be." That quote would be mine. The mood of the moment (not to mention the rhythm of the sentence) was irresistible. But the Republican Party would probably not disintegrate if either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz were its nominee. The reality is both less dramatic and (for those who wish the GOP well) more tragic.

    Illinois Review ^ | April 12, 2016 | John F. Di Leo
    You may remember a silly little youth comedy from the 1980s entitled “Real Genius,” in which the minor character Lazlo Hollyfeld has put his mathematical mind to work and decided to enter “the Frito-Lay Sweepstakes – No purchase necessary, enter as often as you want.” So he entered 1,650,000 times. “I should win 32.6% of the prizes,” he added, “including the car.” When Chris Knight, star pupil, commented, “That kind of takes the fun out of it, doesn’t it?”… Lazlo shrugged and replied “They set up the rules.” I have always wondered if I was alone in my anger when...

    After the New York primary, based on today’s numbers and polling data, Trump will have a nearly 5 to 1 ratio over Cruz in primaries. Trump will have 150% of the number of delegates as Ted Cruz. He will have amassed nearly 150% of the number of votes as Cruz. With the following week having primaries in five more East Coast states, it will be time for Cruz to begin his exit strategy. Cruz will be unable to win the Republican nomination outright after April 26th. He will need more delegates than are available and Trump will have a nearly...
  • There is no New York presidential primary [It has 28 separate primaries]

    The New York primary is rather 28 separate primaries, as 81 of the delegates will be distributed on the basis of results in the state's 27 congressional districts and 14 will distributed at large based on the statewide results. It takes winning over 50% of the vote to be allocated all three delegates from a district. If the winner has a mere plurality, the delegates are allocated proportionally. These 27 districts include urban minority enclaves, affluent suburbs, small cities, and vast stretches of rural areas. Another crucial factor is that New York is closed primary: not only can't independents participate...
  • Trump Flat Out Says Cruz ‘Illegally’ Coordinated With Super PACs, Violating Election Law

    Law Newz ^ | April 6, 2016 | Rachel Stockman
    In his, shall we say, ‘defeat’ statement following his Wisconsin loss, Donald Trump leveled some pretty heavy accusations at his opponent, Ted Cruz. This time, he’s accusing the Republican presidential hopeful of flat-out violating election law. ... According to opensecrets.org, there are 12 pro-Ted Cruz super PACs (independent-expenditure only committees) that have raised millions of dollars. A group called Keep The Promise III has raised the most funds at over $16.5 million. However, to date, we have no evidence that Cruz openly coordinated with these groups, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. The rules on what counts as coordination...

    For those who are deep in the weeds on the Michelle Fields nonsense, here’s a video which essentially takes all of the various angles, video’s, audio’s, and puts them together to show how ridiculous her claims were/are. Even if you haven’t kept up with all the column inches dedicated to this insufferably silly story, this video cuts through the chaff and hits the essential point – It’s much ado about nothing.

    A spokesperson for the Cruz campaign did note that the senator was on Hannity’s program Monday. That interview lasted about 12 minutes. However, before that interview aired, Cruz raid response director Brian Phillips suggested it might have been the candidate’s last appearance on the show... “How many hours of free media does CNN and Fox and every other station — you let him call in. And for a year he got $2 billion in free media,” Cruz said at the time. “We’ve asked you for interviews pretty much every day and you’ve declined every offer on my program,” Cooper shot...
