I note the conspicuous lack of a rebuttal.

So much for all the recent talk of the people running his campaign promising a different, less volatile Trump.

Problem is, this message resonates with his base. They're the meme crowd, nuance is a French word; any regulation on guns = they're taking our guns. It's easy, and long lasting. So Hillary must be a hypocrite to be protected by guns, and it's ok to "joke" about the assassination of hypocritical bitches.

All very true. Just another reminder that his "foot in mouth" impulse (to put it extremely mildly) will never be fully controlled no matter how many campaign officials attempt to "rein him in", is all.

You mean a plurality of the country given recent polls. But yes, I agree, it resonates with them.

The horse race would have ended quickly had the Democrats provided a suitable candidate for liberals, but it looks like we'll either toss Jill Stein a bit of pity or just recycle the ballot. Y'all say you didn't need us, so enjoy a nailbiter.

No, I mean common sense and the ability to comprehend everyday observations.

This is an absolute non sequitur, this message would have resonated no matter who. Stop trying so hard.

Of course it would have, but then Trump's lowly polling numbers (in the low 40s) wouldn't have been anywhere near enough for him to be in contention. After all, the third party polling tends to hurt Clinton by an extra point or two in her margin over Trump. That 3,000,000 or so that currently say they're voting for Stein would have dried up to almost zero had Bernie been the nominee. Not to mention the millions of others staying home because of the detestable options.

But, god forbid it happens and the orangutan becomes Commander In Chief - all of the Clinton primary voters owe everybody else an apology. Hell, you can argue that they owe everybody on the left one already. Even if she wins, it will lead to much weaker coattails for the rest of the Democrats to ride giving us a more Republican heavy Senate and House than if someone else had been the Democratic nominee.

Got busy at work.

I feel that Hillary is incredibly dangerous to the country. That being said, you have very skillfully defended her to the point where I pointed out you'd make a great press secretary for her. You have been able to deflect attacks against her as Conspiracy or Hyperbole (Conspirbole). Don't have time for a rebuttal at the moment. But will get around to it. Initial thought is that you are using the term "White Supremacist" hot and loose, to your rhetorical credit.

Hilary's not the one currently making "jokes" about how risky it could be if a presidential candidate didn't have armed guards around them. Just sayin'.

Not to mention:

tracking people of certain religions

not taking nuking Europe off the table

posting propaganda written by neo nazis

and who did he hire as his campaign manager?

When you can't recognize danger, you are amongst the most dangerous.

I look forward to your rebuttal, because so far you have not defended Trump against any of the charges laid against him.

As for being hot and loose with the term white supremacist, I have only used that term to describe people who fit its definition. I wish it wasn't the case.

I'd rather hear his rebuttal than BMP's.

RCP has a nice little module running from their aggregate polling -- no toss-up mapping.

They just take their current aggregate poll number and update each state as it updates.

Remember: aggregate polls do not accurately predict -- rather, each individual poll is an individual predictor. So, aggregate polling is second order, and these results merely depict trends as opposed to results.

Nonetheless, given the current trends (Trump surge), this should give you an idea of where the Republicans stand as of today, were these pills to come true.
