There is still one active opponent in John Kasich and a lot still can happen but the designation by Reince Priebus that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee is a big deal. I was watching returns at Pete's with the crowd there and when Senator Cruz dropped out, I was surprised a bit but the elected GOP people in the room stayed huddled in the corner having dinner.
There doesn't seem to be much connection between local Republicanism and Trumpism. Perhaps worries about down ballot or just a reluctance to publicly express support for a controversial candidate...who knows ?
New York is usually not in play and perhaps not mattering has created a malaise towards Presidential politics. Also there is a desire not to rile the local media who adhere to what they see as the John McHugh school of Republicanism.
Donald Trump should do better in NNY than Romney who was just a name on the ballot. This year the colors are more vivid and it will be interesting to see if NNY goes strongly for Trump and whether down ballot candidates will embrace him or just give perfunctory support as they worry he will hurt them. Weeks ago, a prominent GOP rainmaker told me he supports Trump but asked I never blow their cover as it's just not acceptable yet to admit allegiance to such a coarse character.
The noted bow tie GOP columnist George Will has already written good conservatives should work to see Trump loses all fifty states. How many share that view will be interesting to watch as the apparent Trump-Clinton race moves forward.
