At this point, whatever happens, the GOP's chances of winning this election is at best 25%, if Cruz is the nominee. If Trump is the nominee, that falls to 3% at best. The problem is; Trump won't win ... and he won't let himself lose.

If he loses the nomination, I see two possibilities;

  1. He immediately endorses his friend, Hillary Clinton. His promises are as genuine as a three dollar bill.
  2. He waits until mid-October, when all the ballot papers are printed, and then he'll endorse his friend, Hillary Clinton.

If he wins the nomination, I see two possibilities;

  1. He loses and drags down the GOP's candidates down-ticket all over the country.
  2. He waits until mid-October, when all the ballot papers are printed, and he is down 30% in the polls. Then he will announce that he is dropping out and endorsing his friend, Hillary Clinton.

And just like that, he'd be the toast of the media/entertainment industry, having made history as having pulled off the biggest con ever on those detested flyover rubes, and he'll tell everyone that'll listen that it was his plan all along.
