Campaigning to become a party’s nominee for President of the United States is very difficult. It requires attention to detail, knowledge of the rules, understanding of the terrain, properly planned infrastructure, and the ability to make good decisions. Once nominated, the race to accumulate states through the electoral college and operate within the confines of unfriendliness associated with reaching out to independents and members of the opposite party is even more difficult than the nomination campaign.
Donald Trump has failed at the first.
Based upon his name recognition, the exponentially higher amount of free coverage he’s received from mainstream media, and his incredible sales skills, Donald Trump should have wrapped up the nomination long ago. He’s the frontrunner in spite of his actions, decisions, and horrendous infrastructure planning; a properly operated campaign could have taken his popularity and turned it into a landslide by March 15.
Even his ally Roger Stone has concerns:

This all speaks to a major problem he would have in the general election. He will need to be more organized, make better decisions, and inspire people outside of his base. Every indication thus far is that he’s not going to do any of those things. He’s scrambling to establish an infrastructure within the states that should have been solidly built by the end of last year. Moreover, he’s surrounding himself with people who know less about fixing the country than they know about running campaigns.
It brings up the next logical conclusion: he is ill-prepared to be President. If he is unable to grasp the intricacies of the nomination process or the general election process, why would people believe that he can grasp any aspect of being President? It’s not easy. Running the country is much more difficult than running an airline and he failed miserably at that in less than four years.
The more we see Trump in action, the clearer it becomes that he doesn’t have the skills required to be the President of the United States. With all of the privileges that have come with being born into wealth, he has never taken the time to learn what it takes to be a true leader.
This is not the “concession statement” of someone who seriously wants to be President of the United States:
Donald J. Trump withstood the onslaught of the establishment yet again. Lyin’ Ted Cruz had the Governor of Wisconsin, many conservative talk radio show hosts, and the entire party apparatus behind him. Not only was he propelled by the anti-Trump Super PAC’s spending countless millions of dollars on false advertising against Mr. Trump, but he was coordinating `with his own Super PAC’s (which is illegal) who totally control him. Ted Cruz is worse than a puppet— he is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from Mr. Trump. We have total confidence that Mr. Trump will go on to win in New York, where he holds a substantial lead in all the polls, and beyond. Mr. Trump is the only candidate who can secure the delegates needed to win the Republican nomination and ultimately defeat Hillary Clinton, or whomever is the Democratic nominee, in order to Make America Great Again.
