Donald Trumps Primaries

Tuesday night (4/26), ┬áTrump trumped over five states and won most of the delegates. Kasich came in second in most of the states, with Ted Cruz right behind him. With Cruz and Kasich having a “collusion”, Trump is saying that it is unfair and that the election system is rigged. Trump acts as though he is getting the short end of the stick, but I don’t really see him as being a victim. I think that after last night’s win, he’s on his way to completing ┬áhis 1237 delegates that he needs to secure the nomination. I believe that even though momentum doesn’t normally completely carry a candidate, this could be an exception to the rule. Even with Kasich and Cruz’s pact, I think it’s too late for them to stop Trump. If they were truly concerned about stopping Trump, one of them would’ve dropped out by now. It’s obvious that they formed the agreement to try and just hold on until the convention in July. Kasich basically has no chance to be nominated. His only chance would be if the convention had to throw a third ballot, but I consider that even then, his chance would be slim. Ultimately, I don’t think that the agreement will be enough to stop Trump. For it to have a big impact, they should have done it a long time ago.
