Last night was the night Mr. Donald J. Trump took a big step towards a first ballot win. As abhorrent at that result may be, there’s no sense deluding ourselves.

Trump still isn’t there, however, and isn’t yet on a trajectory to be there. But he’s a lot closer as a result...

Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvanie, Rhode Island, and Maryland vote today. All polls close at 8:00 PM EST.

UPDATES (by WAJ):

Issue is not whether Trump wins the 5 states, issue is whether he picks up more delegates than expected, which he will have to do to get on trajectory for first ballot win.

Tuesday, a New York judge decided the ‘Trump University’ case will go to trial.

No trial date has been set (Fox News reports tentative trial date would be sometime this fall), but New York’s Attorney General indicated he expects Republican presidential frontrunner, Donald Trump to testify as a witness.

Bill Clinton? Yes, but let’s not get nostalgic.

I once commented that I can’t stand the sound of John Kasich’s voice.

It’s not that it is grating on the nerves, like Hillary’s screeching chalkboard-scraping cackle.

It’s just that he reminds me and a lot of people of the relative at the dinner table who JUST WON’T STOP TALKING. And who doesn’t...

Donald Trump has a “favorability” problem. Poll after poll shows Trump doing poorly against Hillary Clinton head-to-head, perhaps reflecting Trump’s historically low levels of favorability (and high levels of unfavorability) for a leading major party candidate.

In response, a meme was created and spread far and wide earlier this month that Trump’s favorability is no...

The anti-Cruz hype is that nobody likes him, everybody hates him, he has no friends.

The anti-Republican hype is that they’re racist bigots.

Here’s a story that could kill (or at least slightly injure) those two birds with one stone:

I fully appreciate that support for Trump has become a cult of personality.

Nothing can sway those who refuse to see that Trump is conning them. He doesn’t respect you. He doesn’t like you. He is manipulating you to get what he wants.

It’s all a show.

In a radio interview with Senator Ted Cruz Tuesday, host Sean Hannity lost his cool.

Hannity contended Republicans were most concerned about the current delegate count, to which Cruz disagreed.

No surprise, the second the polls closed Trump was projected the winner. What remains to be seen is how many delegates he gets.

(added) As of 11:30 p.m., Trump has approximately 60% of the vote and is credited with 89 delegates, but that likely will go up a couple...

It’s not often that a Republican presidential primary in New York matters.

This year it does. It’s a time for choosing, to paraphrase Ronald Reagan. The choice is between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, though John Kasich is on the ballot too. The real race to the nomination has been Trump v....
