|Looking good for Hillary Clinton.|
Donald Trump swept all the Northeastern States in his quest for the Republican nomination.
Not even a contest. Trump made himself the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party. The controversial media and business mogul took Ted Cruz and John Kasich to the woodshed.
Trump wins Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland and Delaware.
Hillary Clinton also came out big this evening as well. She won Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland, and Delaware.
Bernie Sanders can claim a victory in Rhode Island. With only one win on the belt, Sanders now finds it even harder. He has no real chance at winning the Democratic nomination.
Donald Trump gets five and Hillary gets four.
|Trump will now focus on taking on Clinton. He is going to start ignoring Cruz and Kasich.|
Trump’s success intensified the aura of inevitability around his bid to lead the Republicans, and created urgent new challenges for his rivals. More significant, it increased his chances of avoiding a fight on the floor of the party’s convention in July and of claiming the nomination on the delegates’ first ballot.
Ted Cruz's last stand is in the politically conservative Indiana. If he fails at winning the state, it could be over for him.
We have a real race ahead. Trump and Clinton are the presumptive nominees and its going to be a bloody battle for the White House.
