Although I still think the odds are with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party, here is how Donald Trump could become the next President. This is an imaginary timeless of events that will be continued. The two main factors working in Trump's factor in this imaginary timeline are 1. An angry Bernie Sanders who refuses to conceded to Hillary Clinton and 2. a newly professional Donald Trump.
Please note : This is not my prediction. And I have built humor into this timeline, and a bit of absurdity. But it is possible that something like this scenario could happen, laying the fondation for a Trump victory in November.

June 15, 2016:
An average of the major polls in Real Clear Politics shows Donald Trump with a 4% edge over Hillary Clinton. Republicans, who were split a few weeks ago, fall in line behind Trump since they cannot believe their good fortune. Polling details show that only 50% of Sanders supporters will vote for Hillary Clinton,. 15% plan to vote for Trump, 12% for another party, 8% will not vote, and 15% are undecided. Almost none expect Bernie Sanders to be the nominee.
June 17 2016:
Massachusetts Senator and leading progressive Elizabeth Warren formally endorses Hillary Clinton for President, saying that the nomination has been locked up for a while, and that Hillary Clinton will will be a good progressive President. She avoids questions about her potential place on the ticket as Vice President. Radical Bernie Sanders supporters immediately attack her in social media and stage "Occupy Warren" sit-ins in her offices around Massachusetts. They refer to her as "Traitor Liz the Phony Democratic Whore who will do anything for money" and shut down her Face Book presence. Donald Trump offers the "Occupy Warren" protestors free hotel rooms at his resorts and casinos as a good - will gesture.
June 30, 2016:
The House Select Benghazi Committee announces the findings of their two-year investigation Part 1. . The report is issued in the names of the Republicans on the committee only. Hillary Clinton is found to be directly responsible for just about everything wrong with American Foreign Policy, and has been accused of being a willful and subversive (I am not going to continue here but the report is not good). Part 2 is due to come out in mid September, and Part 3 right before the election.
July 11, 2016:
Donald Trump picks experienced Tennessee Senator Bob Corker to be his running mate Corker is seen as a traditional establishment Republican who is wise on foreign policy matters. The Republican Party, Speaker Paul Ryan (who endorsed Donald Trump in late June), and the media hail the choice of Corker as a wise and sage move on the part of newly professional candidate Donald Trump.
July 18 - 21:
The Republican Convention in Cleveland, Ohio is a huge success. Donald Trump gives a dynamic and coherent speech the Republican nominee on the final day of the convention and exceeds media expectations. He has also drops his hateful rhetoric about Muslims and Latinos, and speaks of a "big Republican Tent" with a smiling Paul Ryan and Bob Corker at his side. Trump announces that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who has put his name in nomination, will have a major role in his administration, along with Marco Rubio and Dr. Ben Carson. The media is impressed, and hardly mentions that the Bush Family is not attending the convention, and has failed to endorse Donald Trump.
The Democratic Convention opens in Philadelphia. Hillary Clinton has not yet announced her Vice Presidential choice. Crowds gather outside the convention in Philadelphia, where all eyes are on Bernie Sanders, who makes a Prime Time speech that night. Suspense builds at and outside the convention. Will Bernie announce that he is endorsing Hillary Clinton? Will he be nominated for Vice President? How is he reacting to the Platform fights which have emerged between the establishment and far-left wings of the Democratic Party?
You can cut the tension with a knife. Bernie Sanders knows that he can make- or break -- Hillary Clinton's chances tonight.
To be continued.
