Setting aside your personal preference, do you think Donald Trump has a reasonable chance of winning in November?

To be honest, I wouldn't typically vote republican unless someone special came along. That said, I don't find him special and he does not have a voting record for me to follow. I can easily get a sense as to what Clinton would veto versus sign into law and I am comfortable enough with that

Donald Trump is a smart business man and would fit perfectly as president. Though he has to much of a "happy trigger" he constantly wants to be too aggressive, and yes this could get America out of a few holes in the process it could get us in a bigger hole. But Hillary shoot she is the luckiest women/candidate in the whole f*****g world

Almost no chance.
Without Pennsylvania in his corner, its hard to see how he gets to 270. And one thing is certain- Pennsylvania is not in Trump's corner.
That would be one thing. But his weakness in more reliably Republican states he'd need to win is also a terrible sign for him- especially in the new South, Midwest and Southwest. Especially concerning are bigger states like Georgia, North Carolina, and Arizona (possibly even Texas) may be slipping away from him.

If the election were held today, of expect Hillary to get at least 375 electoral votes, and it wouldn't even be close. But there's still three months and it's still 2016 so who knows.

This as well. Hillary has NUMEROUS paths to the White House. Being a Republican with the electoral map as it currently is, Donald Trump already starts out at a disadvantage with a much narrower road. Any republican MUST win at least Ohio or Pennsylvania or Florida in order to win the White House. Donald is on an even narrower road because Florida is pretty much off the table and the others are closing up. In addition, he's actually LOSING safe republican states causing an already bad starting position to be even worse.

The GOP may never recover from this if they lose their strongholds.

Not at all. Mitt Romney had a reasonable chance. John McCain had a reasonable chance. Bernie Sanders had a reasonable chance....


Donald Trump is a colossal buffoon. He's caused Georgia, Utah, South Carolina, the Dakotas and Arizona to become potential toss-ups. He's losing by an average of 10-15% to one of the most unpopular candidates in a lifetime.


If you think that con artist has a reasonable chance right now, you must be a Trump University graduate!

Gary Johnson has a more legitimate shot of winning right now.

For the Republican Party, a "win" will be it they can keep the Senate... Because at this rate, they're about to squander their majority and lose it in a massive way.

Margaret Sanger the founder of Planned Parenthood is a racist that would make David Duke blush. Her portrait is in the national portrait gallery and Hillary won an award named after her despite her outward racist ideology - lefties get a pass on everything or would you care to explain the reverence for an outright racist?

The majority of PP abortions are performed on black people, the majority are located in poor black neighborhoods with easier access for a reason. What do you think that is? Just giving the community what it wants - going where the demand is greatest or to serve the women's health needs of the community? Is that why abortions make up the vast majority of their work and the biggest income generator?

Stas are stats and facts are facts despite what you wish and hope. PP has committed genocide on a generation of black babies and nobody on the left seems to care.

Hillary supporters don't see a single blemish and believe everything about her is made up and she told the total honest truth about the emails, Benghazi, cattle futures, being dead broke, landing under sniper fire, her being named after a guy who was not famous until after she was born, all her grandparents were immigrants and more.

The way the electoral college (i.e. battleground states) are shaping up, no, it does not appear he has a reasonable chance. The crazier he seems the more moderates will be pushed away from him. The more moderates are pushed away the more states become battlegrounds (i.e. Georgia) and the leaning blue states become locks (i.e. Penn and Ohio). The more he falls behind in battleground states AND the more he causes safe red states to become battlegrounds, the less his chances become. Then on top of that, factor in the third parties and numerous defections from that party. His chances are getting slimmer daily. That being said, crazy shit happens, but I still would say he does NOT have a reasonable chance.

You also failed to tell me why you are unable to even so much as look at the evidence I presented and come up with a rational argument to the contrary. The only explanation for not even looking at the evidence is because you are scared you might find something that conflicts with the narrative that Hillary is perfect for president.

I don't like Hillary and won't vote for her, but she is 1000x better than Trump.

Electing a talking goat would even be a better option than Trump.

Actually never mind, the goat doesn't even need to talk to be better than Trump.

RC, as a Catholic Priest, of all the creatures under God's Heaven, could it be that you chose a goat to present a not-so-subliminal symbolism of who you'd rather vote for to illustrate your loathing for The Cheeto?!...

Priest, I kinda thought that was the subconscious connection you were intuiting!😅
You need no absolution here, my good RC. It seems there's an expanding contingent of folks who equate Trump with the devil, ON PURPOSE!

Trumps entire campaign has been going down the gutter in the last few weeks. Can't believe so many Republicans still think he has a shot

Yes I did set my personal opinions aside. He's way behind Clinton in the polls and it'll likely only get worse once the debates start. Even if he closes the gap, the electoral college math is stacked against him.

Crooked Hillary winning will be pointless. She'll never be able to reach the Oval Office because there are stairs leading to it.
She might as well drop out now. But I'm really conflicted about it because I really want to see La Trumpeñiero annihilate her during the debates.

gonzoboy Arizona
08/09/16 9:22 am

I'll say "I think so", because that's hardly a definitive answer. Look, he's simply not cut from political cloth, and his lack of savvy and diplomacy is increasingly apparent, since the field of 17 was whittled down to only him, and boy is he ever on an island. That lack of political couth is what will STILL endear many to him, because it screams "Outsider!", but it's also making increasingly more folks cringe. I still believe he can be an effective leader. There's something fun about envisioning him treating Congress like a bunch o' construction site laborers, or world leaders that do not like us, like dogs that just pissed on his leg! I say let's rock this boat, and make America great again, AGAIN... 😝

Yes, but I don't think he will. Hillary is the candidate that will follow the democrat theme of more free stuff, more taxes on those who have money to pay them, more pandering to minority groups, less nationalism, more dependence upon international approval and regulation, and more shaming on those who have any sexual morals at all.

How is he bigoted and racist?
How is Hillary not bigoted by supporting regimes that kill homosexuals and treat women like cattle.
How is Hillary not racist as she supports the genocide of a generation of black babies with her hero and planned Parenthood Founder Margret Sanger who was more racist than David Duke and the KKK would ever dream of becoming.

Racist and bigoted and a liar = Clinton
Loudmouth and not politically correct and a liar = Trump.

One is fixable the other is generational and the status quo.

Look at the polls a$$hole. Trump is self destructing. Hillary will win.

Not really. There are some good reasons to think Clinton might win. There are also some good reasons to think Trump might win. The vote was a mix, and at present a little more than 1/3 of Democrats think it will be Trump.

I am a Democrat and I am one of those who think it may well be Trump (although I think he may be on the path to self-destruction, finally, so ask me again in another month).

So your generalization isn't accurate and your *assumption* that any "probably not" votes is pretty unfounded anyway.

tytheguy
08/09/16 12:25 pm

How do? What kind of evidence do you have that says he will win? All the polls show a Clinton victory and even if he pulls closer in the popular vote the electoral math looks bad for him. Very small chance to win.

I don't have any "evidence" that he will win; I'm just *afraid* that he will, based on how surprisingly and alarmingly well he has done, in polls and in generally expressed sentiment, up until recently.
