    My Labradoodle has a better shot at beating Hillary. She'd be the first female canine President!

    Been looking for a place to put this thought for a couple of weeks:

    If Trump loses by less than 5%, his supporters will start a relatively large scale violent (guns) protest after Trump tells them "I told you it's rigged".

    You think Trump, a man with his head so far up his own a** he can eat breakfast twice, is looking at these polls and thinking to himself "man, I'm a total goner!"?

    He was using the "corrupt/rigged system Washington elites" narrative a year ago. It's not a new strategy.

    Why are people surprised that establishment does not want a non-establishment politician in the white house?

    LOL, yes that is the reason why people will not vote Trump.

    I'm confused. What is it then that you think he's going to see that will convince him to drop out of the race? The Republican Party completely abandoning him? Either way, he's far better off post-election with his narrative of him losing a rigged election than dropping out right in the middle of the race.

    This is why I keep cracking up every time I listen to Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity spew their "They just don't like him b/c he doesn't fit with the establishment..." nonsense. You feel like screaming at the radio, "No, you ****ing dumbasses, they don't like him b/c he says highly offensive things, has extremely thin skin, doesn't know **** about foreign policy, and is an extremely toxic candidate." They would go so far as to accept Cruz, whom they generally hate, easily over Trump.

    I don't believe Rush and Sean are that dumb, they only say that to influence the true morons out there.

    Your years profiting off of dictatorships has skewed your view of elections.

    Sean Hannity has been pro-Trump from day 1 when most conservative talking heads were pushing Ted Cruz.

    For sure, Trump is the kind of candidate that increases numbers for ANYONE who runs against him. In fact, the only reason he won the Republican nomination was that the vote was splintered 17 ways. More Republicans voted against him than for him and those people aren't going to vote for him now. They'll either not vote, or they'll vote for someone else. Gary Johnson will get a decent number of those.

    I can honestly say that I DO believe Sean Hannity is that dumb. I've seen him cheerlead for Trump for months now...even to the detriment of Cruz who he loved prior to Trump's ascent.

    Other Republican candidates got screwed over by Hannity nightly on his show to the point of ridiculousness. It was Trump every night during the primaries for 6 months. The rest....maybe once a month if that much. He's always been very hard right and since McCain/Romney lost has cemented that status even more so.

    Of course, he simply claims he was reflecting what the people wanted in his coverage (all the while helping to form that result with his coverage). He pisses me off.

    He's a large part of what made it "Trump News"

    I hope he doesn't drop out. This like a snowball heading down a mountain.

    He will probably fall more and more behind, while at the same time the pressure will continue rising. He will then say more outlandish things day after day.

    Perhaps he shaves his head and moves to an isolated island to rule Brando style.
