An hour before polls closed in five states last night, Our Principles PAC declared that Donald Trump would sweep all five primaries. No worry, the anti-Trump outfit said. "The path to the nomination does not hinge" on any of these outcomes.

Really? Well, the anti-Trump folks had an explanation. The five states "have always been identified" as tough places to stop the Trump juggernaut. So those results – Trump won all five by wide margins – are "neither surprising nor decisive."

That his victories were not surprising is an indication of how Trump has taken command of the GOP race. Ted Cruz and John Kasich have become figures in his rear view mirror.

Cruz is going to announce a running mate to try to shift focus from his losing status. The problem for him is that the talking heads have already identified that as a loser's move. He's between a rock and a hard place. By everything he's said himself thus far he should be withdrawing from the race.

Cruz's future is as dead as his twin brother Grandpa Munster.

He is finished - no matter what happens in Indiana.

Cruz was NEVER going to be the GOP nominee. The only reason he hung around as long as he did because he's a favorite with the Tea Party, and the Tea Party has been running the GOP the last 4-5 years. So the TP, and even what's left of the GOP establishment, they both looked to ANYONE to stop Trump. Even Cruz.

To show how out of touch and desperate the GOP has become, they looked to Cruz. A man who could never, ever win a Blue or Purple state. But the desperate GOP even looked to Cruz..

Very, very funny watching the GOP implode like this. Entertainment at its finest.
