In a nomination race like the Republican one, you could draw up a list of reasons to be skeptical of any candidate’s chances. Here are some reasons to be skeptical about Ted Cruz’s position in Iowa, for example. Here’s why Marco Rubio’s strategy looks increasingly precarious. There are also good reasons to be skeptical about Donald Trump’s chances of winning the Republican nomination….
But the reason I’ve been especially skeptical about Trump for most of the election … [is] because I assumed that influential Republicans would do almost anything they could to prevent him from being nominated.
But so far, the party isn’t doing much to stop Trump. Instead, it’s making such an effort against Cruz.
