The Stop Trump movement just got stopped.
Facing the slimmed-down field that his critics said would bring him down, Donald Trump routed Ted Cruz and John Kasich in all five Eastern states holding primaries Tuesday. Trump foes have long insisted the bombastic billionaire has a "ceiling" over his Republican support of 40 percent or less.
Instead, Trump easily cleared the 50 percent mark in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. He topped 60 percent in Rhode Island and Delaware. On the heels of his landslide in New York last week, it's little wonder Trump declared himself the presumptive Republican nominee.
