Not bailing

Months ago, I mentioned that I thought the prospect of Trump dropping out of the race was unlikely but "probable." But the scenario for him dropping out would be if he faced a humiliating loss and found some face-saving excuse for quitting. He's already floating some excuses, but with members of the GOP establishment asking him to drop out, I can't image he would do it anymore. There's no saved face if it looks like he was pressured to leave the race.

So I no longer think Trump dropping out is a serious possibility.
