The Trump Effect: REPUBLICAN PARTY Sets Primary Turnout Record – 28 Million Votes with 5 States Left

I’m not one of the wizards of smart in the GOP, but I predicted weeks ago Trump was gonna wrap up the GOP nod before the convention.
  It was during all the fuss about Ted Cruz picking off delegates here and there and I said then it wasn’t gonna make a difference.  Reading this blog is worth your time.   

GatewayPundit reports the AP and Real Clear Politics today reported that Donald Trump surpassed the number of delegates needed to win the Republican nomination for President. With the delegates awarded from his win Tuesday in the state of Washington and additional delegates reporting predominantly in Pennsylvania and North Dakota, Trump surpassed this magic number today.

The Republican Party started the year with 17 bona fide candidates in the race. This was more than any major party ever. In spite of this, Trump has now accumulated 57% of all Republican delegates to date and enough to win the nomination. (Note that the Green Papers website has yet to record Trump going over the top.)

Don’t pay attention to Bill Kristol and Erick Erickson.  Those those guys were yesterday.  It’s a new day now.
