The Republican Establishment Is Now One for Fifteen in This Cycle

Mike Allen and Daniel Lippman, Politico

The GOP establishment is now ONE for 15 in this cycle (and the one is liberal Minnesota, Marco Rubio’s sole win). After his Super Tuesday romp, Trump has a 90%-plus chance of winning the nomination. He has more delegates than Cruz and Rubio COMBINED, 10 wins, and big leads in upcoming states. Rubio bombed in his chance to be the alternative. Turns out, doing a cheap impression of Trump’s cheap tricks does not a winner make.
