2016 US Presidential Election Thread Part VI
 
It's difficult to tell from this vantage point whether Trump will consume the captive GOP establishment or merely enslave them. But, one thing is for certain: there is no stopping him; he will soon be the nominee. And I, for one, welcome our new Imperial overlord. I'd like to remind them as a trusted FYM contributor, I can be helpful in rounding up others to build a wall along the US/Mexico border.

I think the Mexicans might build the wall themselves to prevent gross stupidity from entering their country.

without knowing precisely what the danger is, would you say it's time for Americans to crack each other's heads open and feast on the goo inside?

The people of Virginia spoke very loudly last night. They went to the polls in record numbers. Virginia is a true microcosm of the U S electorate. That is what I have been hearing lately. :shrug:

Look, no one is moving to Canada, even if Trump wins. Because then we'd have to deal with Norm Kelly.

better hurry up before the wall is built

Irvine511 03-02-2016 10:22 AM

so, two big stories for me from last night:

1. excellent set up for Clinton. she's much, much better when she has something to lose or is even a bit behind. when she's in front she's not as good. she's much better when the stakes seem high. Sanders' continued viability is not only good for the country, but good for her. she needs the competition. and he's doing a great job keeping the base (and the bros) engaged in the election while giving voice to major issues that could be overlooked. i expect a barn berning speech at the DNC convention in support of HRC.

2. the failure of Rubio. i had thought that he was going to become the anti-Trump, and that the establishment's estimation of him -- young, attractive, non-threatening ethnic, generally good on his feet, excellent ability to memorize and repurpose empty soundbytes -- was going to appeal to the party. but it turns out that the old, white, angry GOP base doesn't seem to like young, smooth-talkin' Hispanics. i guess i shouldn't be surprised.

...do you even know who Norm Kelly is?

I can't see (swing state) Virginia going Red again after being a Blue state in 2008/12.
Trump got trounced in the swing counties of Northern Va. by Rubio by about 40-25%. He has almost zero chance in the general there.

The best hope for the Dems, and frankly the country, is that the huge number of Republicans in the anti-Trump crowd, which makes up over 60%, stay home during the general.

If they stay home, Trump gets destroyed.

If they show up and throw their support behind him, he might actually win. Which is an incredibly frightening thought.

I'm familiar with his Twitter presence as the old white Canadian guy who thinks he's hip, my understanding beyond that is that he works in the Toronto city government.
