    Democrats aren’t laughing about Donald Trump anymore. He has them all but admitting defeat.

    In a stunning admission, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager predicts in an email that Donald Trump will become president if he wins the Republican nomination.

    “If Donald Trump takes the Republican nomination, our party will lose more than the presidency,” Robby Mook writes to supporters.

    “Years of progress will be ripped away. Obamacare will be repealed. Marriage equality will be rolled back. Get excited to visit the wall on the Mexico border — and get ready to pay for it if President Trump can’t magically get Mexico to cough up the cash for it.”

    In case you ain't noticed nobody's laughing about Donald Trump anymore:

    At this key stage, latest polls raise Republican eyebrows

    ".....So, where do things stand? Let’s start with the Hawkeye State, where there are two major new Republican surveys to consider. The new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll has the race shaping up this way:

    1. Donald Trump: 32% (up from 24% in early January)
    2. Ted Cruz: 25% (down from 28%)
    3. Marco Rubio: 18% (up from 13%)
    4. Ben Carson: 8% (down from 11%)

    Trump’s 32% showing is the strongest support any Republican has had in Iowa from this poll all cycle. The latest results from Monmouth University point in a similar direction.

    1. Donald Trump: 30% (up from 19% in December)
    2. Ted Cruz: 23% (down from 24%)
    3. Marco Rubio: 16% (up from 17%)
    4. Ben Carson: 10% (down from 13%)

    Note, in both of these cases, each of the remaining candidates was below 5%.
    It’s hard to say with confidence whether Trump voters intend to show up when it counts, and the lingering questions about the efficacy of the candidate’s on-the-ground operation matter, but if the polls are correct, there’s no question as to who’s favored to win on Monday night.
    But what about the New Hampshire race nine days later? The NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll also shows:
    poll has the GOP race shaping up this way:

    1. Donald Trump: 36%
    2. Ted Cruz: 24%
    3. Marco Rubio: 14%
    4. Jeb Bush: 9%
    5. Ben Carson: 8%

    Finally, there’s a new Bloomberg Politics/Purple Strategies poll taking a look at the national landscape.

    1. Donald Trump: 34%
    2. Marco Rubio: 14%
    3. Ted Cruz: 12%
    4. Ben Carson: 9%
    5. Jeb Bush: 7%

    Taken together, it’s not hard to figure out which Republican candidate is in a dominant position. When was the last time a presidential hopeful was in this strong of a position, so late in the process, and failed? Never. It’s simply never happened.
    Either Donald Trump will be the GOP presidential nominee or we’ll soon witness the most spectacular collapse in American political history........"

    So late in the process? There hasn't even been a primary yet!

    Anyway, 1980. George Bush Sr. had won three of the four primaries held thus far and was leading the race in early March.

    1988. Bob Dole and George Bush Sr. were tied in primary wins going into March's primaries.

    Oh, I wouldn't read too much into this, Hillary is just trying to raise money again and she thinks using a polarizing figure is a good way to do so. It's terribly written, however, who concedes defeat before even a vote is cast?

    Trump is polling at 51% in Michigan, they may be right after all.
