It has been a foregone conclusion since Donald Trump’s big primary victory in Indiana forced both his remaining opponents from the nomination race. But Trump has now attained the delegate majority he needs to clinch the Republican nomination for president. Thanks to the new found support of 14 North Dakota delegates, almost all of whom recently switched their preference from Ted Cruz, Trump’s delegate count stands at 1,241 delegates, four more than the number needed for the majority.
Despite all efforts of the anti-Trump crowd (of which I am one) and against all odds, Donald Trump is now assured of being the 2016 Republican Presidential nominee. #NeverTrump couldn’t stop him, and no third-party run looms to mute him. He even busted Election Projection’s Stop-Trump-O-Meter. Importantly, the pre-convention majority Donald Trump now owns will avert a contested convention and give him two months before the Republican National Convention to train his guns away from Republicans and onto presumptive Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.
