HE'S NOT A REPUBLICAN:

Trump's Saturday delegate disaster : In Colorado and South Carolina, the GOP's embattled front-runner had another very bad day. (ELI STOKOLS and KYLE CHENEY 04/09/16, Politico)

Donald Trump's struggle to win loyal delegates to the Republican National Convention grew even more desperate on Saturday, with crushing losses in Colorado and South Carolina that put victory at a contested convention further from his grasp.

Trump, who handed the reins of much of his campaign this week to strategist Paul Manafort in an effort to shore up his operation before the nomination slips away, was swept out of delegate slots up for grabs at Colorado's state convention. Adding to his woes, he picked up just one delegate of six on the ballot in South Carolina. The most painful result, though, may have been Trump's failure to capture two of three slots in his strongest South Carolina congressional district.
