ï¿¼ He’s now 1/2 to be the Republican choice
The big news in the White House Race is that Trump had another emphatic victory in last night’s Nevada caucuses. This means he’s now made it three states in a row and is now a clear favourite to secure the nomination.
It is not just the fact of victory that has been so striking but he’s winning by huge margins. Rubio came in second place in Nevada but a long way behind.
Trump is helped, of course, by the fact that he’s still facing multiple opponents who split the non-Trump vote. It is hard to see how this pattern can be broken as we move into the mass of primaries in the first week in March.
The only way that Trump can be stopped is if there’s one anti-Trump candidate ideally Rubio.
In the betting Trump’s moved from about evens to 1/2 or even tighter.
The longer this goes on the more it looks like a Trump versus Clinton contest in November.
