Is it time for the GOP to unify around frontrunner Donald Trump? With large leads in delegates and votes, and with several favorable state primaries coming up, how close is Trump to closing the deal? The "#NeverTrump" fringes appear to be faltering of late -- possibly losing faith in their abilities to procure "procedural machinations" that deny Trump the nomination in Cleveland. However, could "power politics" disguised as "rules" and "moral principles" end up carrying the day for the GOP Establishment? If so, Sean Hannity avers he's "walking out" of the GOP. And so we ask: In such a scenario, how many spurned Trump supporters might never vote GOP again? Meanwhile, Ted Cruz stays in the race despite his mathematical impossibility of reaching 1237 delegates -- as does the math-challenged John Kasich, who says he's "got friends" who will be "on the Rules Committee" in Cleveland. With music and listener calls.
