I'm glad you said that. I did NOT understand the uproar over that. OMG HE HUGGED OBAMA. TRAITOR! I know it's shocking to discover that he was a human being with actual human emotions, and not everything has to be political.

Edit: I mean, what everyone else already said.

I'm sure Republicans are gonna start talking about Reagan again in the next debates or something.

Nobody is listening to Trump and then voting Democrat.

Cruz is surging. Marco is disintegrating. But if you look at the high population states ahead, I would say Cruz would only make North Carolina interesting. NJ, NY, MI, PA, CA, AZ, IL, FL are good places for Trump.

OH will be tight with Kasich in the mix. I would have expected a better performance from him in the border counties near Cincinnati yesterday.

Should we be hoping for a GOP brokered convention? I guess that really depends on Rubio winning Florida and Kasich winning Ohio, which might be easier said than done.

I'm sure hoping for one. I would love to see Trump voters disaffected. They're stupid as shit for falling behind that man, and I hope they lose interest in voting/I hope they feel cheated by the system.

I don't think Rubio necessarily has to win Florida for a brokered convention, but he definitely can't drop out before then. Kasich has to win Ohio, though.

I'm very interested to see what happens when this Trump NYT tape comes out, as it's apparently more or less Donald admitting that he's only saying the things he's saying to appeal to the lowest common denominator. You know it'll come out eventually. If he can survive that he can survive anything.

Honestly I'm not sure he was wrong when he said he could shoot somebody and still be popular.

If that's all that came out, I don't think it would hurt him among his supporters. Rather than realizing that many of them are the target of that statement, they would likely just say "well, what politician DOESN'T say anything to get elected?"

How has that not been discussed here so far. I think it will be proof of my belief that he's all bluster and no substance and is not actually Republican (I think that fake "Republican voters are idiots" quote could very conceivably be true) much at all. Just populist and riding a wave of momentum. But, I don't think it will get released if his attitude towards it at the last debate was anything to go by. Rubio and Cruz tried so hard to turn up the heat on him about it and he just shrugged his shoulders and got away with it. His supporters don't care and I agree with Headache, Ax and Cori, it won't affect him.

Maybe that's part of the plan? Drop the bomb after the primary... maybe people won't see him as serious on all of his terrible social views.

Neither candidate really answered the question at the debate tonight, but I sure as shit don't know how I would answer the question "so tell me - how are YOU a little bit racist?" in front of millions of people.

it's getting kinda unfair at this point because it's very hard to honest to answer those questions. If i were Hilary, even if I actually used that term "super predator" to condemn black people in the 90s, I probably couldn't honestly say , "yes, I might have been little racist"
