GOP nominee Donald J. Trump is doing something that none of his predecessors in modern political history have managed to do: actually expand the Republican “big tent” with voters who have not traditionally supported the party.
This is evident by the increasing number of union members – most of whom are lifelong Democrats – who have said they will support Trump in November against his likely Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, who is reportedly under investigation by the FBI for possible violations of the law regarding racketeering laws.
Donald Trump handily won Washington state's Republican presidential primary Tuesday, even as he shared the ballot with three other candidates who had already dropped out of the contest.As counties started posting their results shortly after 8 p.m., Trump took a commanding lead with 76 percent of the vote, followed by John Kasich and Ted Cruz, with 10 percent each. Ben Carson garnered 4 percent of the vote in early returns.
Even though Trump is the only candidate remaining in the GOP contest, Kasich and Cruz were still on the ballot because

Trump Tide Will Lift Entire GOP Ticket
NY Senate candidate sees Republican front-runner as 21st century Reagan
The #NeverTrump crowd is running out of steam — and time.
All of its attacks — that he’s as liberal as Hillary Clinton, anti-immigrant, or a con man who will say anything to be elected — have failed. But perhaps the most absurd criticism of the Trump Deniers is the argument that he would hurt Republicans “down ticket.” In fact, the opposite is true.
We’ve seen this movie before. In 1980, the Washington Establishment raised the same chorus against Ronald Reagan, who was accused of being a reactionary and a divisive drag on the whole GOP ticket. But Reagan led the GOP to the biggest U.S. Senate swing since 1958, picking up 12 seats and giving Republicans control of that body, to the shock of the Establishment. What’s more, Reagan swept 34 new seats into the House, along with hundreds of legislators at the state level.
Donald Trump:’Thank you DELAWARE! Thank You RHODE ISLAND! Thank you MARYLAND! Thank you PENNSYLVANIA! Thank you CONNECTICUT!’
It was a big night for Donald J. Trump, who swept the Republican contests, and Hillary Clinton, who won all but Rhode Island among the Democratic primaries.
Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton barreled toward a general election showdown on Tuesday night as they dominated primaries in Pennsylvania, Maryland and other Eastern states, piling up enough delegates to close in on their parties’ nominations.
Looking past their fading rivals, the two even taunted each other in dueling election-night events. Mrs. Clinton chided the Republican’s penchant for harsh language by saying that “love trumps hate.” Mr. Trump was more bluntly dismissive of Mrs. Clinton, saying her appeal boiled down to her gender.
“Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she would get 5 percent of the vote,” Mr. Trump said.
Donald J. Trump wrested back control of the Republican presidential race on Tuesday with a commanding victory in the New York primary, while Hillary Clinton dealt a severe blow to Senator Bernie Sanders with an unexpectedly strong win that led her to declare that the Democratic nomination was “in sight.”
The Queens-born, Manhattan-made Mr. Trump was poised to take most of the 95 Republican delegates at stake, substantially adding to his current lead over Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and significantly improving his chances of winning the Republican nomination. Mr. Cruz came away with no delegates, a major setback, while Gov. John Kasich of Ohio had a shot at picking up some in Manhattan and the capital region.
Mrs. Clinton’s decisive victory ended a string of wins by Mr. Sanders and gave her more delegates than her advisers expected. Her base of support was Long Island, the five boroughs, and upstate cities, with female and black and Hispanic voters turning out for her in especially strong numbers.
Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has decisively won the Wisconsin primary, complicating front-runner Donald Trump's path to the nomination.
In the Democratic race, Bernie Sanders scored a strong victory over Hillary Clinton in the Midwestern state.
Mr Trump leads the race, but could fall short of the number of delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination.
That would mean a contested convention where voting for candidates starts again from scratch.
How does a contested convention work?
Mr Trump said on Tuesday he would prevail despite the loss and took aim at his main rival.
"Ted Cruz is worse than a puppet – he is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination," the Trump campaign said in a statement.
Party leaders are concerned that Mr Trump would be a weak candidate in the general election and could harm other Republicans lawmakers on the ballot. Polls show that the real estate tycoon is extremely unpopular among key voting blocs including women, Latinos and young people.
When it comes to the question of whether Donald Trump can win a general election this November, both parties need to accept it: Yes, he can.
Trump’s path — made up of new and mostly white voters without college degrees — is a narrow one, but President Obama’s two White House campaigns showed the candidate with the most new voters likely wins.
Of course Trump will lose many establishment Republicans, movement conservatives, independents, women and minorities.
But in 2012, with only 58 percent voter turnout, Mitt Romney lost to Obama by 333,908 votes in four states. Surely Trump, who inspires new and exceptionally enthusiastic voters, could invest the resources to target whiter states like New Hampshire, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio.
