Trump won New York last night with roughly 60% of the primary vote.
With it, and the delegates that came with it (at least 89 of the 95 total), he has essentially shut out Cruz, who no longer has any rational mathematical way to reach 1237 delegates.
Cruz (and Kascich’s) only hope now is to actually steal the nomination from the man who has the greatest delegate and vote count at the convention. While one can argue that “this is all part of the rules” it’s also how the Republican Party, if it occurs, will destroy themselves just as the Whigs did.
