It's definitely problematic when pundits make the types of sweeping claims you mentioned, given how uncertain/dynamic primaries can be. But from late 2015 until he won the nomination in 2016, Trump led the rest of the GOP field pretty consistently. So, there's a recent precedent for that, and given what we know about the nature of Trump's appeal, maybe the same pattern holds this time around?
