Donald Trump will likely wind up winning the most primary votes of any GOP presidential candidate in modern history, the author of the influential Smart Politics blog told The Post on Wednesday. 
After convincing victories in Tuesday’s primaries in five East Coast states, Trump has roughly 10.1 million votes, about 200,000 more than Mitt Romney got during the entire 2012 primary campaign. 
And with the primaries ahead — including in populous states such as California, New Jersey and Indiana — the former “Apprentice” ­reality TV star should easily break the modern record of 10.8 million held by George W. Bush in 2000, according to blogger Eric Ostermeier, a political science professor at the University of Minnesota.

There are tremendous amounts of voters coming out to vote for Trump who would never vote for any other candidate.

Hillary is fucking toast.

So far, this is all playing out exactly as I thought it would.

But I guess it could go wrong. What might take Trump down, short of assassination, I can't imagine.

As a conservative intellectual, I am dismayed and horrified that the Republicans are going to nominate a wildly popular candidate with great appeal to middle class whites in places like Michigan and Pennsylvania. Sure there are millions of white Americans who will probably come out and vote for Trump who have not voted in years, but what about the dozens of Hispanics across the country who voted for Romney?
