Call it now, is Trump the GOP nomination? Give us your thoughts below.

Donald Trump will barnstorm through seven southern states in just four days after Thursday night’s Republican primary debate in Houston, Texas setting the stage for what could be an election blowout on ‘Super Tuesday,’ March 1.

On Friday he will stump at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas before boarding his private Boeing 757 en route to a second convention center rally in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Saturday will see The Donald in Bentonville, Arkansas, the home of Wal-Mart, rallying supporters at the airport there. Then it’s off to Millington, Tennessee, a suburb of Memphis, for another airport hangar speech.

On Sunday Trump will be in Huntsville, Alabama inside an aviation engineering company’s hangar – again at a regional airport.

He’ll next turn up at Radford University in Radford, Viginia and Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia – both on Monday.

Trump also spoke Wednesday at Regent University, a Christian college, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, talking onstage with evangelist Pat Robertson and Christian Broadcasting Network host David Brody.

His rapid-fire schedule is so tightly orchestrated that only Trump’s private jet can make all the stops. There is no commercial airline service, for instance, that can take journalists in between Monday’s two university stops quickly enough to make it to George in time for Secret Service screening.

And unlike the two presidential candidates on the Democratic side of the 2016 White House contest, Team Trump isn’t helping news outlets with chartered flights.

Trump has the leading poll position in nearly every state set to hold elections on Tuesday – the exceptions being Texas and Arkansas, where Cruz holds slim leads.
