Donald Trump now has a total of 1,238 delegates, one more than the 1,237 necessary to win the nomination. He will certainly get more, since he is the only candidate still running, and there are still some primaries to go. But he is now the Republican candidate for president.
Now that the Republican race is over, we can take stock. I’d like to hear from those of you who were Trump supporters from the beginning, party loyalists, grudging he’s-better-than-Hillary voters, and #NeverTrump conservatives.
I’d also like to hear from Democrats, both those of you who support Hillary Clinton and those of you who support Bernie Sanders.
Some think Trump’s nomination means an easy victory for the Democrats. Others think the Democrats underestimate him–as the other Republican candidates did–at their peril and that Clinton will be no match for him. Some Republicans say that they are worried about about two potential outcomes: if Trump loses, and if he wins.
What do you think?
