Trump's vote total among Latinos compared to Romney actually could be quite similar mind you. Plenty of more conservative minded Latinos out there that aren't down with illegal immigration.

But yeah, if the high amount of Latino registration recently is anything to go by, his actual percent total of that vote should precipitously drop given the expected higher Latino turnout.

I think at the end of the day, the ballot saying Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton will be enough for Trump to get about 40% of the vote nationwide, regardless of what he says or does from here on out.

Johnson still averaging 9% in three-way national polling. Extra media attention and the sinking Trump ship could very well get him into the debates.

Still becoming more and more common for his and Stein's name to show up in polling. Makes you wonder why they haven't been doing this for years as it's far more accurate.

Traffic sucks today and there are three helicopters circling around my office building... and then I was reminded Trump's in town doing a fundraiser at the country club next store.

He ruins everything.

Agree. Guess it was a response to posters in here (and other forums, social media) with the disgust of the drones. Obviously a disaster when strikes hit civilians, and I'm of the belief (for the moment) that our Generals and President do EVERYTHING they can to possibly avoid collateral damage or mistakes.

It's such a complex situation with FP. Shifts in ideology and leaders, economic collapses or surpluses, natural resources (oil), tribal conflict dating back thousands of years, technological advances, and climate change.

I don't like the thought, or even execution of being a world police, but I also see it as a if we don't do it, are the consequences even worse?

This is what I was imagining. Clinton doesn't need a particular state to be flipped via a VP or anything like that. A Texan democrat is a bigger picture move.

While Booker is more middle of the road, and would boost AA turnout, I think that because Trump is the opponent, Clinton will get a good amount of moderate voters all on her own.

Does she play it safe and pick Brown or Kane thinking it will give her leverage in their swing states?

More interestingly is you bringing up the coming election years. Dems could have quite a line up. Booker, Castro, Warren, Jack Conway, Beau Biden, Kirstin Gilibrand, Gavin Newsom are all interesting plays.
Beau Biden???

That would be a great pick IMO, especially since the dead person vote leans heavy democrat. Might as well lock that demographic up for a while.

Quite an interesting line-up.

He's posted a video today that seems to me to suggest that he will fall behind Hillary.
