IT'S ALMOST OVER: Donald Trump is well-positioned to lock up the GOP nomination before the convention
After Tuesday's voting, in which Donald Trump won four states but not Ohio, you may have heard from some pundits that the Republican Party is headed to a contested convention. No candidate will manage a majority of delegates, meaning that they will have to fight over the nomination in Cleveland.
This is probably wrong.
If you look closely at the delegate-allocation rules, you can see that Trump is well-positioned to claim the 1,237 delegates he needs to win the nomination outright — even though that will require him to win 55% of the delegates that remain.
