    The Washington Post Editorial Board Just Sat Down With Donald Trump. It Didn't Go Well.

    "Electing him will still be a radical risk." –Washington Post Editorial Board

    Donald Trump had a meeting with the editorial board of the Washington Post Monday evening. It didn't go well. Here's what the editors had to say afterward.

    "We met with Donald Trump. Electing him will still be a radical risk."

    That was just the headline.

    "Unfortunately, the visit provided no reassurance regarding Mr. Trump’s fitness for the presidency," the Editorial Board writes.

    “I’m not a radical person,” he told us as he was leaving. But his answers left little doubt how radical a risk the nation would be taking in entrusting the White House to him.

    They also noted Trump's "breezy willingness to ignore facts and evidence."

    Are there racial disparities in law enforcement? “I’ve read where there are and I’ve read where there aren’t,” Mr. Trump said. “I mean, I’ve read both. And, you know, I have no opinion on that.” Global warming? “I am not a great believer in man-made climate change,” he said.

    They observed that "no one can match the chasm between his expansive goals and the absence of proposals to achieve them."

    He would remake the nation’s libel laws, but how, given Supreme Court jurisprudence on the First Amendment? “I’d have to get my lawyers in to tell you,” he said. How could he implement a ban on non-citizen Muslims entering the country? “Well look, there’s many exceptions,” he said. “There’s many — everything, you’re going to go through a process.”

    And they mocked him.

    His answer to racial disparity and urban poverty is to create jobs. But how? “Economic zones,” “incentives” and improving the “spirit” of inner-city residents. “You have to start by giving them hope and giving them spirit, and that has not taken place,” Mr. Trump said. How would he push back against Chinese expansionism in the South China Sea? “We have to be unpredictable,” Mr. Trump said. “We’re totally predictable. And predictable is bad.”

    The Editorial Board concluded Trump is "empty policy basket" who "makes almost impossible the kind of substantive debate on which democracies depend." And they slammed his "lack of clarity" as "dangerous."

    Who Could Save the G.O.P.? Republicans Weigh Some Ideas
    By ALEXANDER BURNSAPRIL 13, 2016

    Speaker Paul D. Ryan’s categorical disavowal of interest in the presidential race on Tuesday appeared to extinguish a longstanding fantasy of Republican leaders: That Mr. Ryan might ride into the convention in Cleveland as a white knight to unite the fractured party and claim its nomination.

    But if the House speaker seems determined not to play the role of savior in 2016, the path envisioned for him might still be open to another surprise candidate, if neither Donald J. Trump nor Ted Cruz can secure the nomination after several rounds of balloting at the convention starting on July 18.

    CBS News poll shows change in Trump-Cruz gap Last Updated Apr 14, 2016 7:16 AM EDT

    By Anthony Salvanto, Fred Backus, Sarah Dutton andJennifer De Pinto

    Where the Race Stands
    Nationally, Donald Trump still has a double digit lead over his nearest competitor Ted Cruz, but his margin over Cruz has decreased. Now, 42 percent of Republican primary voters nationally would like to see Donald Trump as the Republican Party's nominee, while 29 percent support Ted Cruz, and 18 percent back John Kasich.

    Last month, Trump's lead over Cruz was 20 points, but now it's dropped to 13 points. Trump's margin against Cruz has tightened among men, very conservative voters and those with incomes over $50,000.

    Trump continues to receive support from a wide swath of Republican primary voters. He leads among men, with 44 percent, compared to 31 percent for Cruz and 18 percent for Kasich. He also leads among women, 44 percent, to 29 percent for Cruz and 19 percent for Kasich. Republicans, independents, white evangelicals, and non-college graduates also prefer Trump.

    But Cruz leads among very conservative voters -- with 46 percent, compared to 40 percent for Trump -- and those who attend religious services weekly, and the race is close among those with a college degree.

    If Kasich were to drop out and the choice was between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, Trump would still lead by 10 percentage points, 48 percent to 38 percent.

    Republican voters' expectations about their party's nominee have changed a bit since March. While Donald Trump is expected to win the nomination by six in ten Republican primary voters, that is down from 77 percent last month. Twenty-two percent now expect Ted Cruz to be their party's nominee, double the percentage last month.

    A Contested Convention
    Sixty-three percent of Trump's supporters say that if he earns more delegates than the other candidates but does not become the party nominee, then he should run as an independent or third party candidate. Among Republican primary voters overall, a third think in that case he should run independently.

    Donald Trump: RNC nomination process is a "scam"
    Donald Trump: My VP won't be like me
    If none of the Republican candidates receive a majority of their party's delegates by the Republican nominating convention in July, it's possible that a candidate who has not received the most delegates could become the Republican nominee. If that happens, 63 percent of Republican primary voters think it would be bad for the Republican Party, including 80 percent of Trump supporters and half of those supporting either Ted Cruz or John Kasich.

    Perhaps reflecting the heated state of the race, these Republican primary voters don't see a single candidate as a party unifier. Each of the three candidates is viewed by a similar percentage as likely to bring the different factions of the Republican Party together.

    Candidate Qualities
    Trump has proudly talked about self-financing his campaign, and most Republican primary voters (58 percent) think special interests have not much or no influence on him -- far more than say the same for either Cruz (17 percent) or Kasich (19 percent).

    By a large -- and growing -- margin, Trump is seen as the candidate most likely to get things done once he gets to Washington. Over half, 52 percent, choose Trump on this measure, while 25 percent choose Cruz and 17 percent say Kasich.

    About seven in ten Republican primary voters think Trump says what he believes. Far fewer say that about Cruz or Kasich; 52 percent think Cruz says what people want to hear, and 40 percent say that about Kasich. Trump is also most widely seen as sharing voters' values, and being prepared for the job of President, although Cruz does well on those measures too.

    Candidate Strengths on Issues
    Republican primary voters trust Trump the most to handle each of the five issues tested in the poll. He receives the strongest support on handling the economy and illegal immigration, both issues he has emphasized in his campaign. He does worst on foreign policy (with 39 percent), although he still leads Cruz (33 percent) and Kasich (23 percent).

    Views of the Republican Candidates
    Among Republicans, 49 percent view Donald Trump favorably; less than half have favorable opinions of Ted Cruz or John Kasich. About a third has unfavorable opinions of Trump and Cruz, while 44 percent don't have an opinion of Kasich.

    But Trump is viewed more negatively among the broader electorate. Sixty-three percent of registered voters nationwide view Donald Trump unfavorably, a six-point increase from just last month. Trump's unfavorable rating is higher than that of either of his two current competitors.

    Of the three Republican candidates, women voters nationwide hold the most negative views of Donald Trump, at 69 percent unfavorable. Forty-eight percent of women have a negative opinion of Cruz, and 20 percent have an unfavorable view of Kasich (although more than half don't have an opinion of him).

    Enthusiasm
    Forty-one percent of Republican primary voters said that if Donald Trump becomes the nominee, they would support him enthusiastically. Thirty-one percent would enthusiastically support Cruz, and 24 percent would do so if Kasich wins the nomination.

    A third of Cruz and Kasich supporters say that if Donald Trump becomes the party nominee, they won't support him. Just 13 percent would do so enthusiastically.

    This poll was conducted by telephone April 8-12, 2016 among a random sample of 1,320 adults nationwide, including 1,098 registered voters and 399 registered voters likely to vote in a Republican primary. Data collection was conducted on behalf of CBS News by SSRS of Media, PA. Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard land-line and cell phones.

    The poll employed a random digit dial methodology. For the landline sample, a respondent was randomly selected from all adults in the household. For the cell sample, interviews were conducted with the person who answered the phone.

    Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish using live interviewers.

    The data have been weighted to reflect U.S. Census figures on demographic variables.

    Donald Trump: Japan, South Korea might need nuclear weapons

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Tuesday night defended his assertion that more countries, such as Japan, South Korea or even Saudi Arabia, may need to develop their own nuclear weapons.

    "You have so many countries already -- China, Pakistan, you have so many countries, Russia -- you have so many countries right now that have them," Trump said in a Milwaukee, Wisconsin town hall televised by CNN. "Now, wouldn't you rather, in a certain sense, have Japan have nuclear weapons when North Korea has nuclear weapons?"

    What Donald Trump's "America First" vision of the world looks like
    Trump said that the United States spends too much money protecting countries like Japan and Saudi Arabia, but "we can't afford to do it anymore."

    CNN moderator Anderson Cooper pointed out that it's been U.S. policy for decades to prevent Japan from getting a nuclear weapon. Trump responded, "Maybe it's going to have to be time to change, because so many people -- you have Pakistan has it, you have China has it. You have so many other countries are now having it."
