Donald Trump's 34-point lead will be, or will very closely approximate to, his eventual margin of victory in the New York Republican primary.
Yes, it is a Republican primary.
But did, for example, Pat Buchanan win New York by 34 points? Did Pat Buchanan win New York at all?
I hope that Trump has genuinely imbibed a certain amount of economic patriotism, of foreign policy realism, and (although this is far more difficult to do) of social conservatism.
He has never shown the slightest sign of any of those in the past. Quite the reverse, in fact.
But if he has, then we may look forward to their influence on his dealings once he returns to being that which, fundamentally and ultimately, he is.
A socially liberal plutocrat from, for, and utterly of one of the two most cosmopolitan cities that have ever existed.
