Trump’s path to nomination clear as Cruz drops out
Trump’s path to nomination clear as Cruz drops out -

Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee of the 2016 US presidential elections after a huge victory in Indiana and the subsequent announcement by Ted Cruz to suspend his campaign. In what seems to be the GOP’s worst nightmare, the only remaining candidate opposing Trump is John Kasich, who is mathematically unable to secure the nomination based on delegates. Although Trump has not reached the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination, he will likely do so by June. Trump has begun to turn his attention to defeating Hilary Clinton, the front-runner of the Democratic party, by criticizing her knowledge regarding trade. Concurrently, Hilary Clinton experienced a defeat in Indiana after Bernie Sanders captured more pledged delegates, narrowing her lead. Despite Sanders’ recent success, it is unlikely that he will be able to win the nomination since Clinton has been able to secure significantly more superdelegates than the Vermont Senator.
