  1. Based on http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/a-state-by-state-roadmap-for-the-rest-of-the-republican-primary/ there are still 502 bound delegates up for grabs: Indiana (57) + Nebraska (36) + West Virginia (34) + Oregon (28) + Washington (44) + New Jersey (51) + Montana (27) + South Dakota (29) + New Mexico (24) + California (172).

    According to http://www.nytimes.com/elections/results (April 27, 2016, 2:48 AM ET) Trump already won 949 pledged delegates. Thus if Trump wins 288 (i.e. 1237-949) of the 502 bound delegates up for grabs (about 57.4 %) then Trump SHOULD clinch on the first ballot. BTW: What happens if a delegate is too sick to attend?

    That doesn't apparently include approximately (?) 150 unbound delegates ( http://www.newsmax.com/Politics/GOP-Operatives-Unbound-Delegates/2016/04/20/id/724870/ ; http://www.thegreenpapers.com/P16/R ; http://www.randomtopics.org/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=1655&start=480#p115482 ) BTW: http://time.com/4303264/donald-trump-ted-cruz-convention-unbound/ .

    In particular, the 949 pledged delegates won by Trump does NOT seem to include 54 Pennsylvania Republican unbound delegates ( http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/21/upshot/the-loophole-that-could-cost-donald-trump-the-nomination.html?_r=0 ; http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/22/us/politics/pennsylvania-primary-delegates.html ; http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-pennsylvania-unbound-delegates-2016-4 ).

    SO HOW DID THE TRUMP SLATE OF 41 CANDIDATES RUNNING TO BECOME PENNSYLVANIA DELEGATES DO ( http://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/723873688001589249/photo/1 )???

  2. In https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2016/04/27/post-election-night-debrief-trump-dominates-northeast-primary-result/ it states "the fact that Donald Trump has resoundingly won every congressional district in Pennsylvania, and the fact Trump won the entire state with 57% of the vote total, gives Team Trump an easy leverage point to advance the argument they are entitled to the support of all 54 unbound Pennsylvania delegates. Again, it appears 45 of them are already pledged to Trump or have agreed to vote for the CD/State winner."

    However, rumpole2 ( https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2016/04/27/april-27th-2016-presidential-election-open-discussion/comment-page-2/#comment-2432530 ) said "Clearly one can not rely on delegates to do what they pledge. It is stated that they are corrupt and open to bribes that is the GOP way, but even so, a chunk of the uncommitted have pledged to support Trump and will have to do that (1st ballot)"

  3. Rove mentioned something like if Trump would win Wisconsin then it would be over. To me that is one strong indication that Wisconsin was rigged ( https://themarshallreport.wordpress.com/2016/04/08/gop-candidate-has-to-win-by-huge-percentage-over-everyone-else-running-but-if-someone-they-dont-want-does-this-even-then-they-will-appoint-someone-who-isnt-even-running-talk-about-fraud-in-y/comment-page-1/#comment-10670 ). Similarly, tonight Mark Levin tried to focus on Indiana; this raises a red flag. (Note: I only listened to around the first 15 minutes of Levin.) ALSO: http://www.politico.com/story/2016/04/ted-cruz-donald-trump-delegates-222475?lo=ap_a2 and http://www.nationalreview.com/article/434581/mike-pence-ted-cruz - The followers of Satan are relentless in their attempt to steal the nomination ... IN SHORT, CRUZ IS APPARENTLY DESPERATE TO WIN INDIANA; THAT MEANS TEAM TRUMP MUST WIN INDIANA !!! Let's not have a repeat of Wisconsin!!!

  4. YOU CAN MAKE CALLS FOR TRUMP FROM HOME. YOUR NUMBER WILL BE BLOCKED. YOU DO NOT NEED TO LIVE IN THE STATE YOU ARE CALLING. TRUMP NEEDS TO WIN INDIANA. CRUZ HAS A BIG GROUND GAME THERE AND WILL SAY AND DO ANYTHING TO WIN. GO TO TRUMPS OFFICIAL WEBSITE TO FIND OUT INFORMATION ON VOLUNTEERING.

  5. Dear Mr. Trump:

    Congratulations on your 5 state victory. I just finished watching your winning speech held at Trump Towers and it was awesome! The responses you gave to the reporters were all excellent!

    The more rallies I watch and speeches I listen to amazes me how you have continually evolved into a great Statesman! I knew it over a decade ago when I wrote to you and gave you my unsolicited opinion that you should run for the President of the United States. There was no doubt in my mind back then and there is surely no doubt in my mind now!

    FYI. . .you need to watch the Chris Wallace interview on the Late Night Show with Stephen Colbert held last night on 4-26-2016! Chris spoke with disdain in his voice regarding you and when asked about you becoming more presidential, his response was along the lines that you were not capable of controlling yourself in a more dignified manner.

    He pissed me off! The problem with Chris Wallace, Megyn Kelly and Chris Matthews is they lack objectivity. A great Journalist and or Commentator should be able to report or interview a subject without bias or prejudice!

    Please stay away from these people they do not have this country or your best interest at heart. Only their own agenda!

    They only want to use you to either increase their networks ratings and or as a means to embarrass you while they attempt to derail your nomination and or presidency.

    Sincerely,

    Ms. Laura L. Johnson

  6. Ms. Laura. Always love reading what you post here and agree. I am also sick of the media carrying on about Mr. Trump not acting Presidential. The media has their own idea of what a politically correct President should say and do. The other candidates can say and do a lot of things that are not Presidential, but the media over looks that. I guess they expect Mr. Trump to take a verbal beating from the other candidates and not respond. We all want Mr Trump to act Presidential, but we love that he is real and truthful. If being real and truthful means he is not Presidential, then we do not want him to act Presidential. The media is so used to most politicians being dishonest that they cannot handle the truth. I have watched Mr. Trump enough to see that he cares for America and all the people and he speaks the truth. I have been very impressed at how he handles large crowds of people even when there are problems in the group. You can see the respect he has for people just by watching him interact with them and that is a rare quality and demonstrates true leadership. The media needs to take their heads out of the sand and watch Mr. Trump with their eyes wide open and actually try being truthful themselves when they give a report. Turn the bias ones in the media off and send a message.

    1. Dear Anonymous:

      I agree with your assessment of the media. The reason the country is in such trouble has to do with corruption within our government agencies, bought and paid for politicians and a media that has no interest in breaking real corruption case stories for the most part! When was the last time you witnessed a group of corrupt bankers, lawyers or CEO's going to jail?

      There was a time when there were real authentic journalist. . .such as Bernstein and Woodward who spent years unraveling the truth called Watergate. Nixon even resigned because he didn't want to face the Senate Hearings!

      Now the House and the Senate are a joke for the most part. . .their all in bed together. The bankers, lawyers, corporate executives, politicians, heads of the judicial branches and the networks / media. The American public no longer has a true advocate like Ralph Nader used to be our consumer advocate!

      The bottom line. . .without checks and balances you have corruption and chaos! Welcome to the new America. . .!

      P.S. Please don't call me Ms. Laura. . .I don't own a plantation. Many say it is a southern respect thing. . .it reminds me of Gone With The Wind! You can call me Laura or Ms. Johnson.

      Sincerely,

      Ms. Laura L. Johnson
