Well, first, let me say mea culpa on the whole if Trump wins the nomination the House is in play. The lower chamber will remain in Republican hands, once again upsetting Nancy Pelosi’s plans of reclaiming the speakership. Even left-leaning Vox said that the math for House Democrats was "grim."

As of 12:40 a.m., Republicans have won 221 seats, according to The New York Times. They also give Donald Trump a 95 percent chance of winning the presidency.
