I'm not so sure the GOP doesn't have a shot at the WH.

I saw something last night on msnbc (or somewhere) talking about voter enthusiasm or whatever they called it. Much higher on the GOP side now than the Dems in 08 or 12.

This whole thing seems rather cyclic anyway. It could be that the GOP gets a term or two and then back to the DEMS. I mean, i hope not, but it's possible. Some people wake up while others go to sleep, etc. The country shifts and bends as always.

I guess TRUMP! is still drawing huuuuuge crowds everywhere he goes, right? Not sure but he is still the celebrity candidate. Whether you like the guy or not, people are at least interested. Before TRUMP! i think it was a couple million people watching these debates....with TRUMP! its 20 million.

That said..even as a registered (I) i can now vote in the primary on super tuesday. Im tempted to vote for Bernie.

Also, fuck ted cruz.

The comparative lack of enthusiasm on the Dem side doesn't bode well for Bernie. He'd be the first to admit that -- he'll only win by drawing people who don't normally vote out to vote like Obama was able to do in '08. Clinton is pretty much the most known quantity in American politics, and it's been assumed that she'll be try nominee for a long time, donuts not like that's going to generate much enthusiasm in a primary.

TRUMP is all about ratings, which is why I think the GOP base is so much more engaged. The networks have been falling all over him for months because he's ratings gold. The Dem race is so boring. All this sober discussion of policy and the making of small distinctions between two older candidates who essentially want almost the same thing but just ....

Oh, sorry. Fell asleep there.

TRUMP! SHOOT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WITH BULLETS DIPPED IN PIG'S BLOOD! WATERBOARD CHINA!

I watched about five minutes of a Dem debate a while back before switching to trash reality TV because it was so boring. If I miss a GOP debate I get genuinely annoyed. They're hella entertaining.

I seriously wonder about him. I sometimes wonder if he's walking around in some kind of Rx haze or something. Everyday he seems less human, and not in a Trump/Cruz way, more like a robot.

His most recent comments about Obama being raised white are some of the oddest, especially given his attitude that racism is hyperbole.

Yeah, he's a very...odd person. Like I've said before, the fact that he's a neurosurgeon troubles me greatly. I wouldn't trust him to work on me.

And this is exactly why politics is such a shitheap.

Some Nevada returns are in
Trump at 42%, can,t be right, no way to get past that 35% ceiling,
Maybe the GOP got the memo and they are going to pile up on Trump now so they can secure the GOP senate

He literally said "I love the poorly educated" in his victory speech.
