As I always predicted would happen, the psychological principles of social proof (of being the Republican nominee) and wanting to associate with a winner are working their magic.
Social proof is especially important for Trump because of all of the MSM finger-wagging over the past year saying that Trump can’t possible win and if he were the Republican nominee it would be a huge disaster for the Republican Party. We see now that all of that has been proven wrong, and Trump is likely to be the next President.
Will the pundits say that the polls don’t mean anything, like they said when Trump was leading Republican primary polling back in November, December and January?

I think the hypocrisy we will see from MSM pundits is that, indeed, they will say that the polls don’t mean anything, even though they were eager to say that earlier polls showing Hillary beating Trump proved that Trump would lose, and they ignored the fact that Reagan initially was far behind Carter in early polling before he became the presumptive nominee.

The only danger for Trump is if the Democratic Establishment decides to support Bernie instead of Hillary (and with the nomination resting on SuperDelegates rather than pledged delegates from primary wins, that’s within the realm of procedurally prossible), but I think that’s unlikely to happen. The Clintons are too entrenched. The DPe would rather lose with Clinton than win with Bernie for the same reason the GOPe wanted to lose with Cruz rather than win with Trump.
But unlike the GOP, the Democratic primary voters are full of low-information blacks and Hispanics who support Hillary because their leaders tell them to vote for Hillary. If the entire nation were demographically similar to Oregon, there is no doubt that Bernie would be the nominee.
