Trump went 3-1 in the early states.

He won them all by double digits, except a close second place.

He has literally 0 endorsements from any Republicans in Congress. Is there any precedent for this? He is running an independent campaign and hijacking the party infrastructure

His existence as a candidate is an endorsement upon himself, and also the only one that matters.

He has America's endorsements. That's what really counts.

Lol well Trump has received 2 congressional endorsements so far today, but the point stands. He won't win the nomination without backing from a single sitting congressman but he already had one of the most impressive early state showings in history.

Btw, his performance so far has exceeded that of Hillary Clinton's. Think about that.

Actually there is a precedent.

In 1952 a candidate for the Democrats named Estes Kefauver won all but 3 primary contests in a primary race. Kefauver ran on a tough on crime + corruption message which caused other Democrats to hate him, viewing Kefauver as a maverick who could not be trusted.

The primary contest took place at a time when only 15 states or so even had primary contests to begin with, the other 35 states actually had elected governors, mayors and party elite choose candidates instead of the people themselves in a vote. Since Kefauver had earned the ire of these people, Kefauver was cheated out of being nominated even though he only lost 3 primary contests.

https://en.wikipedia.org...

He wasnt necessarily running as an 'independent' or tried to 'hijack' the party, but he was the very first in modern history to not get any endorsements from congressmen despite being the clear front-runner

Would the GOP win the election if Trump is the GOD candidate? Trump is hard on the minorities. There is no way he can win those votes. Voting Trump, by the way.

Of what I've heard, endorsements aren't even relevant anymore.
But in any case you're wrong. He has been endorsed by former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin and by Congressmen Chris Collins and Duncan Hunter.

Endorsements don't matter at all. Rubio's can't even cite anything he's accomplished in the senate. (because he hasn't accomplished anything) http://www.politico.com...

There's nothing to think about. The republican base is nuts.
