Thread: Trump is GOP Nominee

  1. #1

    Default Trump is GOP Nominee

    Like really?

    I'm not a politics guy and so I don't follow this stuff closely, but it certainly appears that his numbers are greater than those of his competitors.

    No. And I bet he runs as a third party.

    Upon googling, apparently not.

    I thought it meant "distraction"

    It sort of does mean distraction. I prefer the term "chewbacca defense" in the legal setting.

    What I'm getting at from before is that it seems like Trump is more than a mere distraction, or misleading sideshow.

    The field needs to narrow down some. Drop even two or three small percentage candidates, and you can probably switch the lead that quickly.

    I mean, at this point, I believe you're either for Trump or not. You either dig his message, or you don't.

    And there is a lot more in common between many of the low percentage candidates than not, while also being way more difference between the lower percentage candidates and Trump.

    So why if you have someone still running that is more similar to the candidate that you really like, but who dropped out, would you switch to the guy with less in common than the candidate you liked? You wouldn't.

    So that, to me, means Trump isn't picking up a lot of the votes that are left out there when the field starts to narrow.

    Trump would win tonight in a landslide.

    Doesn't matter, Clinton will be the next president regardless of what happens on the GOP side.

    His whole candidacy seems to be a ludicrous false flag operation, but if he keeps hating on Mooslems he'll steal enough votes as a 3rd party to put Clinton in the WH easily.

    Seems to me that's the plan here.

    Yep. If Trump goes third party I think we're looking at Cruz/Trump/Clinton. Good luck to us all in making that decision.

    He's running a heel campaign and the hilljacks are eating it up.

    I think this is very plausible and quite likely. The problem I see is that more than one or two dropping out before at least three primaries in seems unlikely. I also think it's likely that Cruz siphons off enough votes from the low percentage supporter pool to keep Rubio from gaining enough delegates.

    That being said, I can't wrap my mind around Trump as the nominee. I just don't see it happening. Party politics is going to do him in one way or another. See Ron Paul's last run (not that they share much else in common).

    GOP is already prepping for a contested convention.

    Which is also the group he gives exactly zero ****s about doing anything for.

    Ha! Close, but no.... I used the word a lot in high school and early college before a girl I was dating at the time handed me a dictionary when I referred to one of our professors as the erstwhile Dr. So and so (forgot the guy's name, honestly!)... It actually became a running joke between us after that. Until she became my erstwhile girlfriend!

    I'd bet on Rubio too
