Cillizza: Trump Clear Favorite

The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza writes that, by any reasonable standard, Trump is a near-prohibitive favorite for the GOP presidential nomination. I'm inclined to agree, while adding the caveat that we are still in early days.

Cillizza argues that given all Trump's apparent gaffes - which have cost him zip - it is hard to imagine what Trump might do at this point to screw up his lead. He's simply done a superior job of grasping today's American zeitgeist.
