“I don’t think we’re going to have a ... brokered convention,” Trump said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think it’s unlikely. I think I’m doing better than that, and so far, you know, I’m really on my way.”

Trump pointed to his double-digit wins in the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries.

“So I have a second and I have two firsts, and New Hampshire was a blowout and this one was a blowout,” he said. “And, you know, I don’t think — I don’t see where there’s a [brokered] convention.”

The billionaire businessman also said the political class is beginning to see the writing on the wall.

“I think most of the smart people are saying there’s not going to be a [brokered] convention,” he said. “Interestingly, the ones who say there’s going to be a [brokered] convention — usually they’re the pundits that have been wrong forever, the ones who have been wrong about me.”
