Just want to be sure I understand how the math works.
I think it goes something like this; and I'll use very round numbers so everyone can keep up.

Candidate A received 10,000,000 primary votes in 2012. Okay we can all agree here.

Candidate B received 10,000,000 primary votes in 2016. Low balling just so everyone is on the same page.

Candidate A received 60,000,000 in the general, SOOOOOOO it's probably fair to say that Candidate B can get about that correct?

BUT, now you're saying there is a higher turn out, AND Candidate B was up against a lot more competition in the beginning of his race. SO it's probably fair to say he'll get a few more votes.

So where's the "case closed"?

Keep in mind NONE of this matter depending on which states are carried.



In all fairness they have changed math since our day Hewson, so maybe this new Common Core math would give us different results.

Is it too late for Biden???

Quote:
Vice President Joe Biden says he “would have been the best president” if he had mounted a successful campaign in the 2016 election, but that forgoing the race was the right decision for his family.

Speaking with “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview that aired today, Biden said he had planned to run but changed course only after his eldest son Beau died last May.

“No one should ever seek the presidency unless they're able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that,” he said. “And, Beau was my soul. I just wasn't ready to be able to do that. But, so, my one regret is my Beau's not here. I don't have any other regrets.”

He and Trump trying to out best each other would have been entertaining at least.

Well technically speaking he could just remain VP and then run in 8 years on the most experienced ticket in history.

I was thinking similar, there is nothing about term limits for a VP,
he would balance the ticket,
Crooked Hillary / Honest Joe
(she's crook-ed, he's honest)

Actually this time I wasn't trying to rile you! I was just waiting for you to take objection to the claim.

I actually would have ignored it if you hadn't brought attention to it. I had just woken up and not in the mood to read long bodies of text.

I tried to catch up with this thread yesterday on my way home from the airport, but ended up still about three or four days behind. Somewhere, Irvine, you posted a really great article about the climate of this election cycle, how someone like Trump could get elected, and just generally it was really a great article, voiced a lot of my feelings well, etc. and I didn't really see anyone comment on it, so I just wanted to say, hey, thanks for posting that.
