Inspired by some discussion in this thread.
Let us assume a solid drubbing in SC going into it. No shock there and that is pretty much baked into all of our perceptions. And that he crushes Hillary in his home state.
Will you be caring more about the delegate count after 3/1 or “solid” wins in at least a few states? (IOW, if you could choose, would you prefer a narrowed loss in delegate rich Texas with a narrow loss in one of the states that he has a chance in - much better for delegate count numbers - or more solid wins in his potentially winnable states with a bigger loss in Texas even if the net racks up more delegates for Team Hillary?
The pundit buzz is that Massachusetts, Minnesota, Colorado, and Oklahoma are all relatively friendly demographic turf for him. And according to the NYT he is spending tons in those states hoping to pull out solid wins and thereby resuscitate his narrative.
What combination of delegate count deficit and/or states lost or margins of victory not achieved would be enough to convince you it is over?
Would fairly narrow victories in Massachusetts and either Minnesota or Colorado (but not both) with narrow losses in the other and in Oklahoma, and solid to dramatic losses elsewhere be enough for you to hang on, given how much better that was than how he had been polling five or six months ago?
