As of today there is a very good chance that Trump will win the lions share of the March 1st states.
With a little bit of luck it is very possible that he could run the table and if he does that then part two of the Super Tuesday primaries on March 15 would simply close the deal for Trump who could be able to march to the nomination at the GOP convention in Cleveland.
Meanwhile, Trump remains a mystery to the Republican establishment. Some party operatives are frustrated the other candidates have outspent Trump but he just seems being gaining more and more momentum. Looking at the money, up to this point his opponents have spent $215 million, which included PAC money invested against Trump.
The billionaire has spent the least amount of any other candidate left in the GOP field. No candidate understands how much it can cost by taking on Trump head to head more than former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. He tried to land his own punches, but, acknowledging his feeble numbers to date, he dropped out on Saturday.
No one had been more vicious about him on the trail than Trump, who was swift to deny all responsibility for his demise. “Jeb fought very hard,” he said. “It wasn’t his time. That’s all.”
On Sunday Cruz and Rubio made the rounds on all of the key political shows on CNN, CBS, FOX, NBC and ABC. When asked to name one state they could beat Trump in on either Super Tuesday, neither man would even confidently name their own home state.
Trump has established himself as the frontrunner and he is optimistic about a multiple wins in both Super Tuesday states. Now it is up to Cruz, Rubio and Kasich to win not just one but two or three states if they are to prove that they deserve their party’s nomination.
