Irvine, quite the contrary to Sanders pushing Hillary to the left, I'd suggest that - absent a few course corrections early on, last year - she's run right to discredit his entire agenda, and the concerns underlying it. Against free college tuition, against single payer healthcare (or what we in Australia call, funnily enough, Medicare).

I suppose 'healthcare is not a right' is at least more bluntly honest than the hoary old 'we can't have them socialist nice things because empire' (aka, we-protect-you-cheese-eating-surrender-monkeys).

In the same way as Republicans want to replace Obamacare?
(And why does he want to replace it?)

I did laugh at the "dead red fox glued to the top of his head " line.

I think he's raised issues that might not have been addressed, and she's gone to great lengths to say, "same goals, different paths." She is distinguishing herself from Scandinavian-style social democracy, but at least it's entered the conversation.

Perhaps. It's entered the conversation, sure.

He's too young, what about his father?

45% of Florida voters think Donald Trump should be President.

38% think Ted Cruz could possibly be the Zodiac killer.

I just don't get it, out of Florida. Who? There's 7 million registered red coats and independents in Florida. I have no idea where the population of that 45% is -- I've yet to meet a Trump supporter.

Both of you, your polling methodology is flawed.

It seems a lot of people in here make arguments about what is going to happen or should happen from their own internal polling.

Jesus, my social media friends, work friends, neighbors probably have a collective opinion, I know they do. I also know it has little bearing on what will happen. I have my personal opinions and bias about this election, which I rarely post, I mostly analyze what I think the electorate will do when given a chance to weigh in.

Since August I have been saying Trump had a real shot a winning the nomination, each week his odds increased. And now, I am saying a Hillary - Trump race is not a cake walk for her. As for what this group or that group I associate with thinks? It does not matter. Who do I think would be the best president of the remaining candidates??

Without a doubt the best person would be Kasich. He is the most honorable and competent of the lot. Also, he has real world experience without the baggage or legal problems. At his core is a very decent person.

My polling methodology? I didn't poll anybody.

I didn't "internally poll" anything. I didn't "predict" anything. I made a statement that was more of being in shock.

I never once doubted the poll numbers. I think my posts have indicated that. I don't doubt polls are accurate, but I do think choice is subject to change. That's why polls from six months ago don't mean anything. Bush was still legitimate, Christie wasn't a total joke. Remember when Rand Paul led the pack? People's tastes change as things develop. I'm saying, two weeks away from the Florida primary, I'm shocked to see the reality. I don't know where these people are hiding.

I wish we could just write it off as that, but sadly I think the problem is far more wide spread than just old people.
