Oh, it's certainly true that he was a clear favorite in each of the states: Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Rhode Island and Connecticut. But even in those northeastern states it is doubtful that even The Donald expected his margin to be so great. In addition to approaching or surpassing the sixty percent vote level, he won every single county in each of the five states. And with word starting to leak out in Pennsylvania that many of the uncommitted delegates are coming his way because of the size of the victory, he surely has to be breathing a sigh of relief.
Ted Cruz is a decent and a smart man, but I believe he became a captive of the consultants in running his campaign, something quite the opposite of the always surprising Trump. And in the eyes of many of the primary voters, many of whom are just looking for some real hope for the future and a fresh approach, Trump has presented that image. He has picked the issues of the generation, out of control immigration and trade and I doubt if anyone in Washington, including Cruz, really understood the gravity of the anger in America. Now this doesn't mean that it's all over, but if Trump keeps his momentum rolling, and Tuesday night certainly helped, it is likely that it will carry him through to victory in Indiana next Tuesday, a state that Cruz must have to even have a ghost of a chance.
So I congratulate Donald Trump, but I also wish Ted Cruz well, and I only hope that the two campaigns can ultimately come together and not take the chance of a Hillary in the White House. Hillary in the White House will clearly lead to the final chapter in the destruction of America. We must do whatever it takes to avoid that outcome. After all, isn't our great nation, the greatest nation ever created on earth, worth it? Each of us must answer that question, so choose wisely and God bless you, one and all.
