As so many have said for so long, Trump was the only person the GOP could nominate who Clinton could possibly beat. Turns out the Clinton campaign thought so too. From wikileaks’ release of Clinton emails, turns out someone in her campaign had written just that.

The campaign, from earlier revelations, sought to play up Donald Trump as a credible opponent. They used media connections to treat Trump as legitimate and to treat him as a serious rival. It worked. They fooled an already emotional Republican base into going with Trump, which is exactly what they wanted.
The Clinton camp noted that even Cruz would probably be beating Clinton.
Well done Republicans. Well done.
