Ah well it's done. I doubted it to the very end, but well, Trump is the republican nominee. Considering Clinton is practically the democratic nominee by this point, we have two bad options that are likely and one bad option (the Greens). That leaves with Austin Petersen, the man who refuses to identify as Peter's son.

Vote libertarian for liberty.
Green, democrat, and republican for tyranny.

lol u guys keep on underestimating trump to the end

in fact everyone does

the guy says right wing stuff half the time and left wing stuff half the time

theres the bernie or bust pledge

theres 18-20% of bernie supporters supporting trump in the GE and possibly more

theres trump strategy for taking independents which he admitted to copying bernie's message to better appeal to independents

theres the impending hillary investigation

u have the FBI threatening leaks of the investigation and possible resignations if there isnt a prosecution

keep on underestimatin trump and ull get trumped in the end

Couldn't last the summer.
Finished by winter.
No chance at nomination.

Contested convention will take it from him.
He'll lose to Crooked Hillary.

Gl with predictions this year mate. Admit it, Trump baffled all of you, and will continue to do so.

Trump won't win, seriously... Bernie voters won't flock to him, they either won't vote or they'll go Hillary at the end.

And if he copies Bernie message it will only be one more time where he lied on his positions to try and get elected. Trump is a salamander of politicians, today he's red, tomorrow he'll be blue. You can't even know what you're really voting for.

not voting hurts hillary

and ur pretty much saying that bernie voters are lying and wont go to trump lol
http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/mar/13/bernie-sanders-supporters-consider-donald-trump-no-hillary-clinton

the bust pledge is real and ud be surprised in the amount of sanders ppl going to trump in the GE

him changing colors is what is gonna make him win

hes right wing now

see what he is gonna be in the GE

low info voters dont bother to do basic research. they hear something they like. get riled up and vote

trump is a populist candidate. he isnt a idiot and has done the basic research to see what appeals to voters. he'll adopt those positions in the GE. he is a master marketer

trump has a shot to win a GE and you'd be a fool to think otherwise

ur from brazil. what would u understand about US politics?

Trump has as much as a shot to win the GE as Bernie has to become the nominee; marginal. And I know that some bernie supports will go to Trump, but so will moderate republicans and republican leanning republicans.

And most of Bernie's supporters who might go for Trump are the ones he managed to get out from the GOP and republican leanning republicans anyways, so it doesn't hurt the democratic voters core (which is larger than the republican btw). In my opinion the GE will be decided on wether Bernie supports Hillary at the end or not, and we can say he has a very high probability of doing so.

Also abstentionism is bad for any party, but it's still better than these voting for the other party.

core democrat base not voting and there r some going to trump is going to hurt hillary. you dont account for the stat that shows 20% of democrats defecting to trump and that there are closet trump supporters.

anti hillary sentiment is pretty big.

trump doesnt have a marginal shot of winning. its a good 30-40% shot of winning

again ur from brazil. what would you know about US politics?

1) Sources
2) Xenophobic comment, but again, what I'd expect from a Trump minion? Everytime a trump-minion is contradicted he will use a low argument that has no sense. Classic.
3) Apparently I know more than half the american population judging by the comments on warlight and ppl thinking trump will win the general election.

As of now, it looks like Clinton will win, but it is too early to say for certain anything. All Trump needs is an upset near November, and he'll be sitting in the Oval Office.

I follow a lot politics in general, not only the american. It happens that I end up sometimes knowing more than the average citizen of the country.


Oh, and I never thought Trump would cap, I did doubt he'd get nominated at the beggining, but I don't underestimate human stupidity and the far right growing trend in the world. Trump was gonna be an important pawn on the race since the beginning; I just didn't expect him to become the republican King for the race.

Yea kasich ain't bad, but let's be honest, it's impossible for him to get nominated...

About trump, it depends on your definition of far right, seriously calling mexicans rapists, defending non-realizable immigration policies, attacking the system with no viable alternative to it, lying about every single thing he says -or to use some of his supporters justification: using too hyperboles-, defending a database for muslim people, and claiming that your country was great in the past, saying now that it needs to be "fixed".

Hitler wouldd be proud of Trump. Seriously, even the european far-right isn't as extreme as him. Don't say he's right wing, because he is not.

calling mexicans rapists

We've talked about this before. Please don't cling to that out-of-context quote like it's the Messiah.

defending non-realizable immigration policies

The wall is quite doable. The deportation could be done by removing welfare and adding/removing other disincentives/incentives, but in all honesty, it is just a negotiating ploy.

attacking the system with no viable alternative to it

What system? And he has given alternatives. People just a) dismiss them or b) don't hear because the media is making up scandals.

lying about every single thing he says

Anything in specific? Because I watch some of his rallies, and have never seen a clear lie. Or is this just you taking the word of the media and leftists?

defending a database for muslim people

It's like internment camps, but WAY LESS WORSE. It makes sense to keep tabs on potential enemies. I disagree with it, but it isn't crazy.

claiming that your country was great in the past, saying now that it needs to be "fixed".

America is a shell of its former self. Not respected by its enemies, not trusted by its allies, weak economically, and morally corrupt. All this since socialism/liberalism/progressivism became prevalent. What's wrong with wanting to make your country great?

Hitler wouldd be proud of Trump

Dear God, this just got more a more sad as you went on. Why? Because Trump aligns himself with Hitler's favorite group,the Muslims? Oh, wait. Because he thinks we should employ genocide? Because he thinks we should send troops abroad?

even the european far-right isn't as extreme as him

hahahahahhahahahhahahahha NO. Trump is central on economic and social issues. He is right on immigration (which will move central to cut a deal) and political correctness.

Don't say he's right wing, because he is not.

Even though this is a typo, it's the most sane thing you typed in that response.

Expensive and ineffective, just legalize drugs and the bad folk won't be a factor.

it's a another step in the direction of rampant authoritarianism, darn this Drumpf and his inconsistent approach to liberty.

America is a shell of its former self.

And liberty destroying acts will only redo it's mistakes while killing off the possibility of remaking it's good points.

At this point, our Republic is over. It was a good experiment, and a successful one, but it has taught mankind that the republic, while noble in the beginning, will inevitably corrupt. We need either a rebellion or a man like Trump, with no regard for "sacred institutions" gone wrong. The former is my preference, but it costs lives and money, and people don't want to part with those. The latter is thus the best we can do. Give people liberty, but f*ck republicanism. If you want democracy use direct democracy. We have the ability. Or just have a goddam autocrat.
