    .

    I wonder what he means by the RNC not keeping their pledge? Is this guy for real?

    Classic innuendo. What a piece of work.

    He's set to win the nomination. Period. As much as you hate or can't bear to hear it, that's the way it is, statistically. No doubt he's keenly aware of dirty dealings in the works from the RNC, and that's who he's talking to, not you or me or any of the general public, he's addressing those within the establishment who will pull out all stops and do anything to stop him.

    He's not going to get the nomination. He's going to stumble on Super Tuesday. I bet he will have trouble winning South Carolina. Yes, I know that he has a 22 point lead according to the latest polls. (Oops, I just looked at the latest poll and his lead has shrunk to 17%. HA HA!)

    Anyway, the question is, "what did the RNC pledge to Trump?" I say nothing. Trump is simply making something up.

    Trump is now blaming ObamaCare on George W. Bush because he appointed John Roberts to the Supreme Court. Never mind that ObamaCare was passed with no Republican voting for it. Never mind that 22 Senate Democrats voted for John Roberts to be confirmed. Never mind that it is CALLED OBAMACARE!

    Hey, I've been anticipating him to self destruct for 3-4 months now, doesn't seem to be happening. It blows my mind that he continues to carry the support that he does. I guess it goes to show just how fed up with the status quo the normal Joe Blow is. Is it going to last? I don't know. To me he seems intent on testing to the extreme his popularity. We'll see.

    I think he could shoot somebody and still be popular. Now that is pushing the envelope.

    Ummm...he's not popular. He's getting about 30%-35% of the GOP primary voters. That's only because there are five other candidates splitting votes. If there were only two GOP candidates, Trump and someone else, Trump would be losing. It's that simple.

    I don't get your math. If Cruz dropped out for instance, many of his supporters would flock to The Donald.

    You're kidding me, right? Trump has called Cruz "a nasty man", "a liar", he's said, "I've never met a person in my entire life that lies more than Ted Cruz". Yeah, Cruz supporters are dying to run over to Trump.

    Trump has peaked. He's getting 30%-35% of a splintered GOP field. Again, if it were a two man race he wouldn't be leading right now.

    Trump has not peaked. He is smart enough to know all he would do by a third party run is ensure a Democrat victory.

    When I say Trump has peaked I mean he's not going to gain any new voters, only lose them.

    I agree that all of those things and more are disgraceful.
    Despite all the nastiness Trump has displayed toward Cruz -- I think a sizeable number of Cruz supporters will turn to Trump rather than Rubio or anyone else. Strange, but true IMO.
