If you’re scoring at home, and for your sake I sincerely hope that you are, put a checkmark next to Donald Trump’s name as the winner of the Republican presidential nomination sweepstakes.
This derby started with about 1,117 people in the field, but this is now, for all intents and purposes, a one-man horse race.
Trump just added Nevada to his growing list of caucus/primary wins, and while he needs more delegates to clinch it, he appears unstoppable.
After all, he’s already shrugged off multiple hard shots that would have lodged molars in the kidneys of others.
Nonsensical — and worse — words pour out of him as if he opened an artery and let them gush out. Nothing he says derails him.
Trump is leading in national polls and in many state polls.
Trump has more momentum than a Lincoln Navigator sliding down the Matterhorn going into Super Tuesday on March 1, when 13 states across the country vote in nine primaries and four caucuses in 24 hours.
The only question is when will the GOP establishment embrace him? Likely not for sometime because the establishment doesn’t like him because it can’t control him.
Trump’s runaway success could be construed as an indictment of the intelligence of the American electorate.
But, at least for today, I choose not be as harsh as Donald Trump.
