There was an assumption that Trump had a high point that he couldn’t overcome which was around 50 percent, and he has in fact been able to close in on 60 percent. His numbers in California are now around 54 to 55 percent. He’s got 1,000 delegates. There are 240 delegates that he needs to win, and if he wins 40-plus delegates in Indiana, it’s hard to imagine that he doesn’t amass 200 in the states of California, New Jersey, Washington, Oregon, New Mexico, etc. that are still to come.
I think it’s imperative upon conservatives to make a decision. Is it important that Hillary Clinton be beat? I think it’s absolutely important that she be beat. And as a social conservative, I honestly believe that Trump in his commitment to a Supreme Court justice who would be a conservative — and I’m anticipating a speech on this very soon by Trump — that he is against late term abortion, that he is for defunding Planned Parenthood, and that he’s for protecting religious liberty, is a candidate who would be infinitely better than Hillary Clinton, and someone we should mobilize behind.
