Unless you’ve been in a coma since the California primary, when Bernie Sanders failed to concede the race, you’ve noticed the media has reached meltdown point on Donald Trump. They’ve also stopped virtually all reporting about Sanders. Why? The answer is simple. Donald Trump has already won.
But what about his high negatives or those polls showing Hillary is beating him? What about that horrible news you’ve read about his financially strapped campaign and all those endless stories about some Republicans that don’t support him? Those are just daily media memes meant to support a narrative that doesn’t exist – the idea that Trump is in trouble.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Those who pay attention to facts and not media spin understand this election has already been won by Trump. The primary turnout is the best indicator of voters in the states. This particular primary has been the best predictor of all because both parties were engaged in competitive races that drew the most likely voters to the polls than anytime in history.
The facts point to a complete turnaround in the electorate.
Donald Trump has, successfully, not only blown away the lackluster performance of Mitt Romney in 2012, but has grown the GOP voter base to include the Reagan Democrats, Independents and an unprecedented number of plain old Democrats. It’s the largest GOP voting bloc – ever.
The media ignores all this because the mainstream media is largely owned and run by people who are profiting daily from a corrupt administration in Washington DC. It’s against their own interests to be honest or to report things accurately. Reporting that Hillary has lost will never happen – until they have to report it on election night.
Let’s dig deeper into how and why Trump will win.
Trump will win the states Romney lost in 2012: Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Michigan. The primaries show that in each of these key battleground states Trump simply walks away with the Presidency. It’s not even close. In Florida, for example, over 600,000 more people voted for the GOP candidate than for a Democrat. In Virginia, that number is over 233,000. In Ohio? 818,000! In the key battleground state of Pennsylvania the Democrats received only 100,000 more votes than the GOP did. 719,955 votes were cast for Bernie Sanders – if even 1/7th of those people don’t turn out for Hillary Clinton – she will likely lose. Pennsylvania hasn’t been won by a Republican since G.H.W. Bush did so in 1988. That’s how compelling Trump and his message is.
It’s like this in many states where Bernie devastated Hillary Clinton in the primary and has completely polarized the under 35 demographic of the Democrats. Hillary simply will not get enough of those Bernie voters. The Democrat divide is the most divided the Democrats have been since 1968 – perhaps today’s dissatisfaction with Hillary Clinton exceeds the discontent of the Vietnam era. Even in an alternate universe where Sanders runs as Hillary’s running mate, the Bernie voters would be so repulsed at Sanders selling out his core beliefs that many would stay home. We could go on and on about the various battleground states and Hillary’s deficiency in getting the needed votes, but that’s really beyond the scope of this article.
Directorate predicts that Trump will win 286 electoral votes to Hillary Clinton’s 252. And this is a conservative estimate which assumes Hillary isn’t indicted before election day, that Bernie Sanders does not run 3rd party and there is not another terrorist attack anywhere in the US before election day.
While the media spins and spins, Donald Trump has won the hearts and minds of the people of the key states he needed to win. His ideas and policies are understood and valued by this large new electorate and no amount of negative media coverage will dissuade them of their views.
While the Democrats coordinate with the media and conjure up new negative “anti-Trump” talking points for every news cycle and while Hillary spends millions of PAC dollars on campaign ads, Donald Trump will steadily and efficiently keep broadcasting his simple message of a great America; a safer America that is in control of its own destiny; an America that repudiates the corrupt political and media enablers that have looted America.
On June 21st, 2016, Washington Examiner chief political correspondent Byron York tweeted that Trump “could build a campaign.”
He could build a campaign. MT @RedheadAndRight: What is he supposed to accomplish? He’s not president yet. What has Hillary accomplished?

The media seem to have missed the fact that Trump already did on June 16th, 2015 and it worked.
Donald Trump has already won.
