See this is the weird thing. They spent millions and millions of dollars, 38 million in attack ads against him in the span of one week, just days - yet, they criticize him for spending a few minutes defending himself against all of that. Same happened with Rubio running around for a week all we heard was Rubio talking about Trumps small hands and referring to his anatomy, Trump makes one statement defending himself against such ridiculousness, and while I think he should have criticized Rubio instead of saying he has no problems with his anatomy, to criticize him for days for the defense, while ignoring that it even was a defense, is ridiculous. He is the only candidate I have ever seen, that is criticized coming or going. They put his back against a wall, then freak out that he dare defend himself and pretend what he said was without any provocation.
I am watching MSNBC right now, they have a couple experts on and they are talking about the convention. Now, we don't know what is going to happen next week, we have a couple winner take all states coming up, but they have this guy on here that is Trump shows up to the convention and he is 150 - 200 delegates short, even if he is the leader, they will go ahead and try to put someone like Rubio or another insider in, another guy on there saying it would absolutely fracture the party, the first guy replied - a republican attorney (I think its a party attorney) - said it wont fracture the party and if he is 150 - 200 delegates short then that will show him as a weak candidate and they can do whatever they like without fracturing the party because that is what the convention is set up to do.
It seems to be very split on whether or not it will hurt the party if it goes to a contested convention and they don't back the leader. I do hope it wont come to that, apparently the Cruz campaign - according to the campaign manager they just interviewed - doesn't think they can take any of these next winner take all states, but they are hoping to take Missouri, which is much like Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas I think. But they aren't thinking they will win Ohio or Florida next week. If that is true, and Trump takes those two states, they are saying there is no way that Trump wont have the delegates needed at the convention.
So, one more week, then waiting to see what next week brings.

After last night's results its now clear their WILL be a brokered convention and the GOP will choose who they want. The only thing that can stop that is Trump getting to 1237 delegates and I just can not see that happening.
