That’s right, since Rubio dropped out, Cruz has added more than twice as many delegates as Trump. And he just added another 14 delegates, sweeping Wyoming.

It’s a two-man race. Kasich literally doesn’t count because he’s mathematically eliminated. At this rate, Trump will find himself mathematically eliminated by the end of May. To have a chance at making 1,237 in California, he needs to take almost every single delegate between New York on Tuesday and Washington State (that’s 466 delegates).
It’s pretty unlikely that will happen.
So Trump has his army of misfits and zombie media blasting the fact that the GOP in Wyoming, like Colorado, chooses its delegates how it pleases, not submitting to the Orwellian “will of the people.”
It’s going to come down to the convention and the delegates. Politics is about the fundamentals, and Cruz has the best fundamentals in the race. Cruz has beaten nearly $2 billion in free media, legions of Trump Twitter bots, withering and despicable personal attacks, and a phalanx of Trump-zombie political coverage from Breitbart and Drudge.
Despite all of that, and being pegged as irredeemably unlikable, Cruz is beating Trump mano a mano by a 2 to 1 margin since it became a two man race.
There’s still hope.
