Somewhat lost in your analysis (totally lost, actually) is that percentages notwithstanding, in raw numbers, more people voted for Trump than in any GOP primary to date. Even party operatives acknowledge he brought in a sizeable number of new voters. Finally, while he won by a plurality, a majority of Republicans fell in behind him after the election. He’s not going to lose because he won the primary with less than a majority, but because he’s done everything in his power to implode ever since. That, and the well-camouflaged corruption of his opponent is not getting nearly the coverage and inquiry it deserves.
