We're hearing a decidedly mixed message from GOP frontrunner Donald J. Trump.
On the other, if delegates were proportionally awarded based upon the popular vote, Mr. Trump's come out a couple dozen delegates ahead.
After an unbelievable and unprecedented run of free media coverage -- as well as a few early victories -- Trump appears to have grown lazy and overconfident. He didn't bother to build a ground operation, the heart of a grassroots campaign.
Even though California's primary is in a few weeks, he just hired a political director for that state a couple of days ago.
Further, everyone has known about the delegate rules for months, if not years.
Trump is a decent entertainer. A masterful politician, not so much.
