18. If his campaign runs at even 75% of how it has run so far he is a lock
he has run possibly the most perfect campaign ever in American politics. The media has "left him alone" for two reasons
1. the lilywhite upper levels of the media have no idea how to talk about "the black guy"
2. He hasn't given them anything to feed on.
