How would you deny him the nomination?  That would almost certainly be political suicide in November.  But then again, the GOP doesn't really care about winning

Trump is certain to pass McCain’s total next week in Indiana, but more importantly, he’s positioned to easily pass the modern record-holder George W. Bush — who collected 10.8 million votes in 2000.

That presents an uncomfortable reality for anti-Trump forces: they’re attempting to thwart the candidate who is likely to win more Republican primary votes than any GOP contender in at least the last 36 years, and maybe ever.

+Daniel Bobke - I think congress would castrate anything he tried to do. I'm not thrilled with the idea of any of them being president at this point.

Wait I thought Trump had no chance? This is why it's best to just vote for whoever you support this early in the process. These polls mean next to nothing. 
Thirty-eight percent would vote for Clinton and 36 percent would vote for Trump.

Great analysis, however, I believe Cruz is a irrelevant at this point.  It appears Trump will lose Wisconsin, not get to 1237, and the convention will pick anyone other than Trump or Cruz.

"What’s impossible is for any Republican candidate, other than Trump, to win a single state Romney lost. Sen. Ted Cruz’s corny speaking style is creepy to anyone who doesn’t already agree with everything he says. He’s the less likable, more hard-edged version of Romney. Every other Republican is, one way or another, a less attractive version of Romney."

Rules vary from state to state, with most states' delegates being forced to vote for who won that state's election.  If there is no winner after the first round, many states allow their delegates to change their vote.  For example, delegates that are pledged to Rubio could change their vote and decide to back someone else in the second round.  Some states will only allow a change after the third round.  
Since this election is more or less Trump vs Everyone else, unless Trump gets the required 1247 to win outright, I don't see him winning at all.  Of course, Trump supporters will say it was stolen, but considering that the 70% who didn't vote for Trump would prefer Cruz over Trump, it would only be theft if they did go to Trump.

Cramer's take on Trump and trade deals
Jim Cramer takes a hard look at the issues Donald Trump brings to the table, as he gets closer to clinching the GOP primary nomination.

Why is having a trade surplus a bad thing? A trade deficit doesn't mean you have a sluggish economy or a lack of jobs. 

 Last year Estonia had a current account trade deficit of more than 12% of GDP, twice as high as in America and more than twice as high as it was in 2000 "Despite" this rapidly rising trade deficit which according to the mercantilists means that Estonia is losing more and more jobs overseas, Estonia has had an average growth rate of more than 6.5% during the latest 5 years as compared to an average of 0.5% in Germany.
https://mises.org/library/what-are-we-make-trade-deficit

Trade surplus is a flawed statistic. One it only factors in manufactured goods not services software investment or consulting. Secondly many of the things made in China were really made in the US just assembled there. Like the iPhone. We make the screens Kentucky  the processors in Texas and the software in California. This accounts for 95% $200 of the cost of the phone. China makes the cases the cases and assembles the phone for less than $10 cost of the phone. Yet since the phone was assembled in China the $650 value of the phone counts against the trade deficit. Yet they don't get $650 of value from every phone sold they get $10. Cramer doesn't know what he is talking about.

Dr. Carson on politics like the  #NeverTrump  movement:

It's not about the Republican party or the Democratic party, its about the people of America.

And what I have been seeing recently is political operatives and parties trying to assert themselves and trying to thwart the will of the people. I find that that is an extraordinarily dangerous place to be right now.

And I want the voice of the people to be heard.  I want the political process to play out in the way that it should play out and I think the Republican party particularly would be very wise not to adopt "let's stop this guy and let's promote this guy" policy but rather start thinking about "what are the things that are going to be helpful for America".

How many #NeverTrump  supporters have actually taken the time to research Trump?

This article talks with people who actually know him.  We can discern that Hillary is horrible from talking to anyone that has ever met her.  Similarly, talking to people who actually know Trump is one of the best ways to research him.

Did you know Trump was in a lawsuit with Palm Beach over flying an American flag that was too big?  When the town settled he donated the money to verteran's charities?  This was in 2007.

If anyone has any information to the contrary from people who actually know Trump, please post it.  I like to gather as much facts about the candidates as I can.

The worst way to research a politician would be to talk to people that know him - especially one that's a billionaire. I would prefer to research thing's he/she has done/said over the last 10-15 years. And yes, I've researched Trump, and found him, out of his own mouth, on EVERY side of EVERY issue. Not to mention numerous lies, half-truths, and general garbleness. My conclusion? He is a democrat and can't be trusted on lick (like most democrats).

Can anyone explain to me the logic of publicly announcing the deal between Kasich and Cruz?  What good does that do?  Rudy is right, it does nothing but give people a bad impression.

It's very problematic for a candidate when your entire campaign is built on principles, and you violate your most sacred principle, and then lie about it in order to get votes.
At a Ted Cruz press conference in Wisconsin, on Monday Carly Fiorina jumped in to defend Ted Cruz after he ...

+Landon Zabcik - he didn't merely answer the question as posed, no. But that's why others have brought up the analogous "have you stopped beating your wife yet?" -- those who answer "I have never beat my wife" are also not answering the question as posed. They're answering the previous question that leads to the question posed. And that's all Cruz seemed to be doing here, too: answering the previous question. The question being something along the lines of "is this tabloid article something to take seriously" - the question posed asserted that it is, and Cruz is answering that question. Once we've established that it is garbage and lies, the question of Cruz's faithfulness becomes obvious.

To support his answer to the previous (unasked, asserted) question, he exposes who (he believes) created the story in the first place, Trump. Given Trump's history, I wouldn't find Trump's denials to be very persuasive, but maybe that's just me.

The food here is pretty good. The burgers are great, but not the best I've ever had. And, they can get expensive quickly after a few options. The milkshakes are really good. Service was okay, atmosphere okay. We did see a large roach crawling on the ceiling. But, it's a 100+ yr old building in Florida, so it wasn't a huge surprise...

I have been fortunate enough to have Bass & Sandfort accountants on my team, helping me with my accounting and taxes for a while now. These guys know their stuff, and they bend over backwards to make sure your accounting and taxes are correct. I've always had a great experience with them. They are busy, yes, but still make time to meet with me face to face and discuss my business. They are all extremely knowledgeable, professional, and accommodating. I've never gotten an "eye roll" or anything from these guys (even though at times I probably deserved it :)). I highly recommend them to everyone I know.

Excellent designers! These guys are fresh and can deliver amazing designs for websites, logos, business cards, ad campaigns, etc. I've had the pleasure of working with them on several projects and everyone there is always extremely knowledgeable, professional, and accommodating.

Best Mexican in Pensacola -- maybe on the entire Gulf Coast. The food is always fresh and great quality. Fish tacos are great as well as their enchiladas. The chicken tortilla soup is great as well.
