Posted on 03/17/2016 7:28:58 PM PDT by Citizen Zed
The Ides of March was kind to Donald Trump. He swept five of six contests and passed an important milestone, capturing 40% of the votes cast. Still, hes not a lock for the nomination.
Mr. Trump holds 673 of the 1,463 delegates selected so far, meaning he must win nearly 56% of the 1,009 delegates left to secure a majority. That may not happen, especially since only 217 of those remaining delegates are in winner-take-all States.

I’m sure Trump is dying to get Rove to tell him how to run his campaign.
Trump: “Thanks for coming in, Karl. Please leave your resume with the front office girl and we’ll keep it on file.”
He’s finished if he doesn’t raise his game like GW did.
Pray America wakes
Why would Trump, who is kicking ass, take advice from these losers? Rove must be coming to the conclusion Trump doesn’t need him and his BS focus groups, and is now trying to stay relevant.
It sure sounds like it. What Karl is writing almost, almost sounds sincere. Why, if I didn’t know any better, it almost reads as though he wants Trump to triumph. We shall see. Tokyo Rove has not been forgotten, and Mitt stands directly behind the curtain, patiently waiting for his cue to ‘rescue us’.
Trump won’t raise his game listening to Rove.
If I were Trump I would look for advice from Karl Rove right after I got advice from Bill O’Reilly, and just before Hitler.
Here’s Trump at his best
Trump may already have deals that have sewn up some of those delegates.
Trump is not actually "kicking ass". Back in late JAN, he was only supposed to lose 2 states (TX, MN). He has lost 10 so far. In the majority of states, the difference between himself and the other highest-polling candidate in the voting is significantly lower than the difference in the final poll. The worst falls were KS (30 pts) and ID (28 pt drop), and 11 other states were 7 points or more, and most of the final polls were taken within 1-2 days of the actual vote..
If it becomes a 2-man race, Trump may be in real danger. He has not topped 49.5% in ANY state, and if that held true in a 2-man race, he would lose every state. His best numbers are 49.3 in MASS, 47.3 in MISS, 45.9 in NV, 45.7 in FL, 42.4 in HI, and hasn't topped 41% in ANY other state. (Every Conservative state outside of the Old South has gone for Cruz- TX, ID, WY, OK, AK). Trump hasn't gotten 47% of available delegates, and he has not topped 50% in any state yet. This is not "kicking ass". It seems to be proof positive that he really does have a ceiling of about 49%... and if that is true, he is very very vulnerable... especially in the General against the Dem Corruption Machine.
I thought Trump only needed 1237 delegates...has the RNC changed that again also>
Surely you must be kidding. Every single vote Trump got when there were 7 candidates would go to his opponent? It’s the only way your insane theory makes sense. BTW: Trump beat Cruz by 52% (BEAT him, not led him. Trump got 64% OF THE VOTE) IN A ny POLL RELEASED THIS EVENING.
I notice every time BOR gives his advice to Trump, Trump does the exact opposite LoL.
Considering his lousy record I wouldn’t take any advice from this fool
Stop, just stop. I don’t know if you are a Cruz supporter, Trump supporter or just an interested party, but Trump does not have any worries right now beyond winning Arizona. If he wins there, it’s another 58 and it’s absolutely over. Cruz has no shot. He needs something like 86% of the remianing delegates and it will not happen, Trump will win NJ, another 51. He’s up 64-12 in NY and is on pace to win at least 75 delegates there. He will win PA, CT, RI, MD, IN amd a host of other states including California.
Another one of your fictions is this ceiling garbage. You know who has a ceiling? Cruz. And it’s something along the order of 25%, maybe in the 30’s in some southern states. Cruz percentage in IL? 30. Ohio? 13. FL? 13. He lost every single state in the Old Confederacy save Texas. Your handle is Teacher317, and I hope to hell your are not a math or stats teacher because the real world doesn’t work like your math. Because Trump hasn’t topped 49.5 in anywhere from a 3 to 10 person election, he would automatically lose a two man election? Stop and think for a minite how dumb that sounds when the guy who would have to beat him is the one getting beaten 49.5 to 25 or something along those line.
