Earlier this week The Gateway Pundit predicted that Donald Trump would win the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination before the convention in July.
In our conservative estimate we even gave Ted “New York Values” Cruz 35 delegates in New York which is impossible at this point.
Trump leads New York by 52% in the latest polling and could sweep all delegates in the Empire State.
We also predicted Ted Cruz will run out of delegates by April 26 unless he continues to steal them from Trump.
Today Donald Trump’s political strategist reported the same news.
Trump will amass the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination before the July convention.
Donald Trump’s new top political strategist predicted on Friday the Republican presidential front-runner would amass the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch his party’s nomination well before the Republican National Convention in July.
Veteran campaign tactician Paul Manafort was chosen by Trump on Thursday to oversee a fractious nomination process that many Republicans expect may not yield a clear winner before the convention.
Manafort said on CNN’s “New Day” program that rival Ted Cruz, the U.S. senator from Texas, will not be able to dent Trump’s delegate lead before California’s June 7 primary.
“The reality is: Ted Cruz has seen his best day,” Manafort said. “The reality is: this convention process will be over with sometime in June, probably June 7, and it’ll be apparent to the world that Trump is over that 1,237 number.”
Trump has been uncharacteristically quiet on social media after his double-digit loss to Cruz in the Wisconsin primary on Tuesday, which followed a series of missteps on the campaign trail including his statement, later recanted, advocating punishment for women who have illegal abortions.
