RCP chooses polls it seems reputable to include. So may argue it includes left leaning and right leaning polls. Instead of citing one poll RCP does us all a service by grouping data sets.

Trump closing 12 points shows the GOP coalescing around the candidate. As argued we may see the same once Hillary secures the nomination this summer. Who would have known the Republicans would have had it sewn up in May with 17 candidates while the Dems have had 2 since October?

I will readily admit that I vastly underestimated the stupidity of the GOP.

A question, though, is if Trump can still be Trump now that he's the standard bearer and is, in effect, the establishment. As they reign him in, will be retain his FAWK YOU bravado?

That's actually my biggest fear. He will reign himself in (or be reigned in) in an attempt to appeal to a larger audience.

I'm not worried about him losing his populist crowd. Those people are in the boat and will know what he's up to for the most part. What I do worry about is him adding one or two educated, reasonable people.

It's funny how this is supposed to be a comeback.

Damn right he's no Hillary. Trump is an unserious, egomaniacal cult-of-personality national embarrassment. Hillary rubs some people the wrong way, and has some policy ideas whose merits can be debated, but she's actually serious about this stuff.

Damn right he's no Hillary!

Meanwhile, the republicans ARE rallying an anyone but Hillary movement. Infighting liberals is just polarizing from within and allowing this race to be a lot closer than it is. That goes both ways... talk to each other like you're on the same side. Because you are.
Yeah, really! (on the Dems side for me)

Well this is where we part ways. We have different political/world views. I'm too tired tonight to fully retort with a counter-point with you about how Trump has the potential to be a great restorative figure in American History and right now Hillary is the national embarrassment. Someday I will write a full blown op-ed into this thread stating my position. It's cool if you guys-gals will pick it apart like carrion birds. It's an Internet forum where I have been treated civilly despite being an outlier most of the time. And I've learned not to get personal as well. No sense in any of us getting an aneurysm over posts. We need some SOE 'release'. We are all pent up.

Admit it. It is fun to have one Trumpkin on the thread to keep things from getting too stale.

Actually, no.
It shows the scary state the world is in.
Not just the US, but all over the place scary muppets who shouldn't lead a dog on a leash, let alone a country, are gaining massive popularity with their biggst selling point being "anti-establishment".
Imagine a business would work like that, when a lack of experience becomes a selling point for high profile positions. It would create absolute chaos.
It's scary, not fun.

I'm with Salome, it's more scary than anything.

You've been shown he doesn't have the decorum for the office, you've been shown he's a liar, you've been shown that he would deteriorate relationships with allies, you've been shown he's actually a business failure more than a success, you've been shown he's a sexist, you've been shown how he's used racism to gain support, and you've been shown he doesn't have any policy that will work; yet your answer is always the same, 'I don't care'. This is not restorative, this is destructive. When you repetitively answer 'I don't care' to these issues, you are saying I don't care about this country. And it's scary when someone so young has been fooled into this blind anger so much that he's willing to light the match.
