Trump inner circle, top advisors, political veterans inside Trump Tower agree: As of July 2016, Hillary will win overwhelmingly-CNN, John King

If the election were held today, most top Trump advisers believe it would look a lot like 2012 -- meaning an overwhelming Democratic victory. Yet they are actually upbeat. 
...........
Four years ago, President Obama won 332 electoral votes to 206 for Mitt Romney. The inside take at Trump Tower, among the political veterans, is that Trump is currently winning states with a combined 200 to 210 electoral votes. 
...........
So how can they be upbeat? The election isn't today -- it is 120 days away, and most of the key battleground states are very close. The thinking inside Trump Tower is that Hillary Clinton was unable to take advantage of Trump's spring missteps and missed opportunities.
...........
Florida is one big priority for boosting Trump's numbers, and the big foundation for Trump's electoral strategy is the Rust Belt -- including traditionally blue Pennsylvania and Michigan

As they set about their state-by-state planning, there is one internal complication: the candidate keeps insisting he can win California and New York. None of the political pros on Team Trump think that is evenly remotely possible, but word is the boss gets a little testy when told he is wrong."

Comment: The GOP Establishment is obviously running Trump's campaign now. Sabotage is coming from all directions. These are the same kinds of things they said about McCain's and Romney's campaigns which they also had no intention of winning.

"Say it again? That word is sabotage. Betrayal....

Up until now not much has been made of the long, disgraceful trait of Establishment Republicans to demand party unity — unless they lose a primary or a convention. In which case they simply refuse to unite behind the winning conservative. And deliberately, with malice aforethought — actively seek to sabotage that conservative....

The GOP Establishment will find a way-quietly or not so quietly-to sabotage the conservative nominee if there is a conservative nominee in 2016. This is what they do....

That is the Republican Party's real problem. And it's a big one."
