Trump clinches GOP nomination

by
May 26, 2016

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has secured the necessary number of delegates to clinch the GOP nomination, according to The Associated Press.

The AP reported Thursday that Trump hit 1,237 delegates — the magic number that gives him a majority — after a small number of unbound party delegates that told the news service that they would support him.

Trump has been the only remaining GOP candidate in the race since early this month, when rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich dropped out.

The presumptive nominee had been very close to clinching the nomination for a little over a week, needing fewer than 100 more delegates, according to the AP delegate tracker. The current count puts Trump at 1,238.

  • anne@fidalgo.net

    Thank the good Lord. There may be hope for us yet! I also went to a Trump rally in Lynden, WA and he is absolutely marvelous. He’s on our side big time.

  • Mark Clemens

    If you want America out of the Economic Dump
    Vote for Donald J. Trump

    If you want the Government to take your gun
    Vote for Hillary Clinton.

    These are our only two choices left. Choose wisely……….

  • Intelligal

    YAY-CONGRATULATIONS MR. TRUMP!!!
    You will be great as our next President!!!

  • American Me

    Donald J Trump will be the nominee of the Republican party.Now if we can just get Republican voters to stop their PETTY BS,maybe we can get a President that is for the People.I’m sorry if the guy you wanted didn’t make it but the People have Spoken.They want Trump.So we must get out the vote.We want a Landslide for Trump,because we already know demorats will cheat and try to stuff the ballot boxes.So get off your couch in November and Lets Make America Great Again.Come On we can do this!!! If we don’t I fear that we will lose everything,our freedom and our country.

        Then I’d suggest that you vent your ire to Warren . . . . . she’s the one who claims , but refuses to prove Native American ancestry.
        .
        I’d bitch too if she claimed to have Austrian roots.

  • jerry young

    so now we can only hope the gop doesn’t try to cheat Trump out of the nomination! I still think they’ll try anything to stop Trump, Trump all the way 2016!

    • Patricia A Galle

      No one has even one delegate until the first ballot is cast on the convention floor. All of the original candidates will get some delegates. There are still many base conservatives who will never vote for Trump. He is a proven liberal Democrat and always has been. He won his delegates in open primaries with Democrats voting, which diluted and devalued the real votes. Many in the party are asking for him to be vetted, because he has no business on the Republican ballot in the first place. We pay dues and make donations to our party, and we expect to be protected from frauds like Trump. Tweets and media bias do not constitute a campaign. Remember Lincoln arrived at the convention with 22% of the vote, and won on the third ballot. Most of the real conservative base who believe strongly in the constitution, will never support a man who has never even read it. It ain’t over by a long shot.

  • justinwachin

    Although Donald Trump was not my choice, he is far better than Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. Hopefully he will win in November and hopefully he will go on to be a good president.

    • Mathematical certainty

      And hope is all that is left!

  • Sybil Schroeder

    Anouk,100 % agree….Thank you

  • Marion E McKenzie

    President Donald J Trump Get use to it…..

  • I have no choice but to support and congratulate Donald Trump on securing the necessary delegates and will mark my ballot by his name in November. I still have serious misgivings about his temperament and shoot-from-the-hip way of making promises without proof of how he can keep them.

    Another email to me asked me to sign an encouraging note to him to keep on fighting FOR secure borders, no Amnesty for Illegals and no Abortion. I add no men posing as women in women’s bathrooms or vice versa. The other site was saying the “Establishment” is trying to force Trump to “tone down” his speaking out on these issues and THAT I TOTALLY ENCOURAGE HIM TO STAND FIRM on. The other site would not allow me to post the encouragement without making a donation which I simply do not have money available -not even on Credit cards right at this time.

    I remember being a delegate to Presidency 2 in Orlando 1987 as a Pat Robertson delegate from Volusia County, FL, and I had talked with two different lieutenants who had been serving on board U. S. Navy ships assigned to “Inspect” the missiles allegedly being returned to Russia from Cuba. Both laughed and said they hoped the big-wigs in Moscow enjoyed the fine furniture that could be made from the Mahogany logs Cuba sent as rockets! At Presidency 2, Robertson spoke from the hip something along similar lines about the alleged return of the rockets but had no proof and no source offered for his information. While I did as pledged and voted for him at the convention, I soon realized the fact I believed he was correct in his facts but offered no substantial proof, and the criticism in the press as a result of the lacking proof, I later switched to the then VP who had sat with his knee only about 18 inches from the Robertson hat on my knee while our Volusia County delegation was meeting with him in a hotel room.

  • Anouk

    Donald Trump is our only hope to make our country great again.
    I listened to him talking in ND. He is really the leader we need.
    Trump 2016.

    • PC Bob

      Correction: He APPEARS to be the leader we need. He’s also become an expert, ala Obama, of telling people what THEY want to hear. I remain highly skeptical, however.

      • elmcqueen3

        If predictions come true about the fall of our economy and the devaluation of the dollar…I wouldn’t want to wish the presidency of the US onto either candidate…they will be damned if they do and damned if they don’t.

        • Mathematical certainty

          And You and I and the millions of other Americans will lose virtually every dime in the bank to bail out the US debt.

          • elmcqueen3

            Stock up on ammo…it will be worth more than gold.

    • PC Bob

      PS. I hope he is!

    • Mathematical certainty

      And you base your research on?

      • CrustyOldGeezer

        Probably PAYING ATTENTION to what matters instead of who doesn’t matter?

        • Mathematical certainty

          And what matters to you as opposed to what matters to the American people?

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            Obviously a reading deficiency.

            You seem to think you matter, and nothing can be further from the truth.

          • Mathematical certainty

            I seem to think that it is time for crusty to be implanted!

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            typical alinsky.

      • Intelligal

        AMERICA!!! AND DELEGATES! STUPID!!!!

        • CrustyOldGeezer

          he’s a moronic troll.

      • Ken says

        A savvy businessman – skilled leader – keen negotiator. That beats the hell out of anything we have have had in the last 28 years + Trump is not an Establishment Puppet + a life long Patriotic American

  • kathy diamond

    WAY TO GO MR. PRESIDENT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Raymond Charron

    Yes, did you have any doubts? Well put your tail between your legs and run away shouting no no way. Yes way. God bless Trump.

    • Mathematical certainty

      Ray, we may be requesting GOD to bless us, if Trump does not deliver on his rhetoric.

      • Pete

        If he does deliver on his rhetoric, he will be the first of either parties in several decades to have done so.

  • Dorothy Davidson

    If Trump does NOT get the GOP nod….Hillary or Bernie WILL be the next POTUS !

    • Phannesa

      We don’t need no stinking RINOS! Trump will be the Republican nominee and POTUS!!

    • Mathematical certainty

      He will get the GOP nod, but will that hold him to his promises as POTUS?

  • Francis

    NO, Donald Trump has NOT automatically clinched the nomination. See the article below per Red State. It depends on what transpires at the convention. Still hoping and praying for Ted. There are more than just a few delegates who dislike Trump.

    Why Donald Trump Getting 1,237 Bound Delegates Doesn’t Mean He Wins

    By: streiff (Diary) | April 23rd, 2016 at 04:30 PM RedState

    That’s the magic number. The number of votes needed for a candidate for the GOP presidential nomination to actually become the nominee. We’re seeing the idea that 1,237 bound delegates means that Donald Trump, or anyone else, wins on the first ballot butthat really isn’t the case.

    Curly Haugland, a longstanding RNC official and an unbound delegate from North Dakota who will be on the convention rules committee in July, told CNBC that attaining 1,237 during the primaries does not secure the nomination.

    “Even if Trump reaches the magic number of 1,237 the media and RNC are touting, that does not mean Trump is automatically the nominee,” Haugland said. “The votes earned during the primary process are only estimates and are not legal convention votes. The only official votes to nominate a candidate are those that are cast from the convention floor.”

    • andrew

      Do we detect some sour grapes here ??

    • kathy diamond

      So, once again you are saying the Voters Don’t Count ?? WE THE PEOPLE SPOKE & THEY BETTER LISTEN. I would like our Voting System completely changed too: MAJORITY OF VOTES WINS. Keep it simple stupid kind of thing. This circus with Delegates is what has caused all of these problems, it’s got to go !!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • andrew

        Kathy… I have been saying repeatedly among these forums, that in the event the RNC or the dumbocraps even TRY to cheat their choice of troglodyte into the race in place of the popular demand of American Citizens for Mr. Trump… Then there will be some serious dung hitting the fan…

        I really, like most people, would rather not see this devolve to a shooting revolution … like what it took to expel the British from the colonies.
        Though I stand before God, and say if that is what it takes to straighten out this current political CLUSTER F**K we’re stuck with — So Be It !!!
        Lock and Load !!! America will NOT go quietly into the night…

        • Mathematical certainty

          America, is slowly slipping quietly into the night. Some examples, ask someone to fill in the stories if you have been living in the cloud!!
          PC gone ballistic,

          Lawsuits against bakeries, wedding photographers, religious groups, upheld by the courts,
          Violent protest groups gone wild,
          Civil discourse, free speech, constantly under attack,
          Colleges and Universities preserving safe spaces for the poor little idiots offended by those holding opposing viewpoints,
          Racial division at its peak,
          Media propaganda and lies beyond the peak,
          Local, County, State, Federal corruption out of control,
          etc, etc, etc,
          And to top it off, ignorant and misinformed/misdirected voters repeating the same mistakes over and over and over again.

          • andrew

            Yes… all listed is true…I am 67, and have watched this political CLUSTER FUCK circle the drain for the last 50 years… I have NOT been ” living in any cloud”
            Read some of my other material if any doubt of my veracity exists…
            I SAID America will not go quietly… and we haven’t yet…
            Things are shaping up for some REAL changes… and NOT the Oblowme variety either…
            Though it may take that civil war to help things along…

            “Though it may take that civil war to help things along…”
            Better yet,….Surgical interruption of nerve tracts to and from the frontal lobe of the brain; resulting in marked cognitive and personality changes for 50% of the leftist population, I believe it is called a Lobotomy!

      • PC Bob

        There is a VERY GOOD reason for the delegate system! It may not be pretty but it prevents some popular loud mouth from taking the election away from the people! Until we can design a better system it will have to do.

        • kathy diamond

          PC Bob, I don’t buy it. These popular loud mouths are the Delegates

    • PC Bob

      I will remain faithful to Ted Cruz until there is absolutely NO CHANCE for him! Until the convention is over, he still has a chance! THEN, I will hold my nose and do the dirty deed!

      • Francis

        Absolutely! Thank you for staying strong and remaining loyal with Ted!

            as for the “Troll” …LOL why bring your relatives into it ??
            Read up… Lay down and rest your neck. Drink some water, take an aspirin and you’ll be alrite in the morning.

      • kathy diamond

        PC Bob, TED CRUZ??? LYIN’ TED ?? HAS A CHANCE ??? HELLO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Mathematical certainty

        Bob, Ted is finished. I too was a Cruzer. But as the British say Americans never elect their most intelligent and articulate
        candidate. Holding your nose to do the dirty deed only creates more votes for the real losers i.e., us and the US! You ask, so what is the alternative?…there is no immediate solution. Until the average American voter starts thinking for himself as opposed to being told who to vote for, nothing will change. Until the average American voter takes the time to do the research, background checks, and records of the proposed candidates, nothing will change. The political process in our country is so corrupt that positive change towards a complete clean-up and clean-out will be virtually impossible.
        For decades we have been: building, expanding, and injecting a population of lazy, illiterate, uneducated, morally corrupt, entitled, irresponsible, and violent sub-lot into society that the lot has been infected to the point of no return to the normalcy of “Right and Wrong”.

      • gf

        Dude, if the shoe was on the other foot, and it was Ted Cruz, were Donald J. Trump is now. You would say that, Mr. Trump, should give it up! No? You Cruzer’s die hard, I will give you that!

    • Pete

      I understand your grasping for any straw you see. Sadly it will all come to not. Polls taken this past week show a 70+% support for Trump by registered Republicans. Independents by not quite so much but still over 50%.
      The folks over at Red State will poison your mind with their Irrational Trump hatred. No one can have a rational discussion with them without being labeled as some sort of a monster & then banished from their site.
      I had a great deal of respect for Red State in years past when their articles were open & usually had several hundred diverse comments. Now when I visit their site it is mostly Insults directed at the millions of voters who supported Trump with only a dozen or two commenters that cheer the writer on.

      • Duke-Jinx

        All too True…. Redstate… censors any fact that differs from their opinion.
