Republican Front-runner Donald Trump is about to take on the roll of a runaway train.
Trump has essentially hit a majority support threshold, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.
In the poll, Trump garners 49-percent support nationally. His closest challengers are all below the 20-percent level of support.
There’s also news of private polling numbers out of New York State indicating Trump could beat Hillary Clinton in the heavily-democrat state. In upstate New York, Trump destroys Clinton. But what’s interesting is Trump competes in the Greater New York City metro area.

At some point the brain-trust behind all the anti-trump rhetoric, you know the so-called “Establishment”, will accept the situation.
These geniuses must understand that trying to derail Trump, by way of a Third-Party run, or intervening at the GOP Convention, will drive his supporters to either stay home in protest or vote for Clinton.
That’s if she’s still around.
A note about Super Tuesday. (Tomorrow for those who don’t pay attention.)
In many of the individual state polls, Trump is way ahead. But the interesting numbers are second and third placing.
It now appears that in several states only Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio or Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, not both, reach the 20-percent level needed to secure any delegates.
This is a situation that further benefits Trump’s delegate accumulation.
If Trump wins north of 300 delegates on Tuesday night the nomination is his. It’s a mark I think he will achieve.
