I think there were actually 18 republican candidates. In the early going the 
style of DT pretty much sucked the oxygen out of the room. I think a lot of it 
was the press' focus on him, but in the end, it was really the republican 
voters that made the decision.

Republicans are well under half of the overall voter population. My personal 
theory was that too many rationally-minded republicans decided to sit out the 
primaries, or else they were legitimately split on "all the rest".

That's too bad, because in the end, they could have fixed the problem by only 
having 3 or at most, 6 candidates. If that had been the case, I think DT would 
not have gone past the first 5 primaries. DT did not get a majority in any of 
the early primaries; a classic case of split votes.

One thing to remember during all of this.  People voted in 50 states.  Very 
different states.  There were, at times, 10 other candidates on the republican

Those 50 states voted Trump in as the republican nominee.  There were several 
other choices.  Trump is the one the majority voted in.


Don't forget that come Nov 8.
