Fox News projects Trump wins Indiana primary
Polls have now closed in all counties in Indiana, where Fox News can project that New York businessman Donald Trump will beat Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the Hoosier state’s Republican presidential primary, according to Fox exit polls and early vote tallies.
The victory significantly improves Trump’s chances of amassing the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the Republican presidential nomination this summer in Cleveland.
With just nine states remaining in the nominating process, the stop-Trump wing of the Republican Party appears to be rapidly running out of options. source
Donald Trump is the nominee — Cruz and Kasich should drop out
Donald Trump’s massive win Tuesday in Indiana confirms the trends of the last two weeks: A majority of GOP voters have decided he’s their nominee. These Republicans have got zero tolerance for games at the July convention in Cleveland: They want the party to unite against Hillary Clinton — now.
It’s time for Ted Cruz and John Kasich to get the message, and suspend their now-hopeless — and pointless — campaigns. Otherwise, all they’re doing is helping Hillary.
There’s no misreading this electorate: In three straight weeks of voting now, Trump has solidly outperformed his pre-election polls.
Maybe you could write off his 60 percent landslide in New York to home-state advantage. But he scored 54 percent to 64 percent in the five “Acela primary” states the next week — and now he’s hit 54 percent-plus in Indiana.
And where turnout had dipped in the Acela states, Hoosiers hit the polls in droves. Trump didn’t win because GOP voters have given up — but because they’ve made up their minds.
Back when the race held a dozen candidates, anti-Trumpers kept talking about his “ceiling,” insisting that someone would beat him once the field cleared out. Reality has proved the opposite.
Even if Cruz-Kasich refuse to quit, Trump’s now on track to win Nebraska’s winner-take-all primary next week and likely most of the remaining contests — all the way to yuge victories in California and New Jersey on June 7. source
