Trump has won in states in all regions. He's not a regional candidate.

Even though Cruz will take Utah, Trump has decided to hold a Town Hall in Salt Lake City tonight. UT becomes winner take all of one of the candidates hits 50%.

You're wrong. The Democrats, the media and the Republican establishment have stupidly changed the narrative from a race between the outsiders and the establishment (where Cruz and Trump would split the outsider vote allowing Kasich an opening to pick up a few states) to one of Trump vs Non-Trump (where Kasich and Cruz will split the non-Trump vote) allowing Trump to be victorious. By playing up the non-Trump angle everyone is handing Trump the nomination on a silver platter.

Cruz is desperately clinging to the idea that he's the only true conservative (thinking Kasich and Trump would split some undefined non-Conservative vote handing Cruz the nomination), and it may be so that Cruz is the only true conservative, but in 2016 it has never been shown to matter as evidenced by Trump sweeping the Southeast.

Looks to me like Cruz is S.O.o.L.

And even fewer buy into the Evangelical conspiracy theory rhetoric either. I'm sure Trump got some of Rubio's voters as well.

With the news out of Alaska, Trump only needs 541 delegates out of 1044.

Does that count the 17 delegates that he picks up with the official win in Missouri? He was listed as only 25; but the 'win' would bring him up to 37.

In presidential debates you have to give details of your plans one lines like I will make America grate again or I run business I know how to create jobs will kill you. Clinton will win a debate 100 times over vs Trump. Would not surprise me if Trump did not even do a debate so not doing a debate vs doing a debate for Trump will hurt him exactly the same.

Let's face it - you just hate Trump. Can you list off Trump's "racist" statements?

Here are Hillary's racist statements:

It does. I had already taken the worst case scenario for Trump in Missouri into account.

Thats an excellent point.I even think Cruz is the 'truest conservative' but for many of us that in and of itself isn't enough.I don't even totally understand why I don't like Cruz but the more I listen to him the less I like him.I'm not going to 'pull a Dexter' and spew a bunch of pointless insults about him,if he pulls of a miracle and wins the nomination I WILL vote for him over Hillary Clinton although I see no path to him beating her.When the very conservative,religious,Cruz loses the entire south to a guy from New York who quotes 'two Corinthians' you know all hope for him should be lost.
