I was just thinking about how the semi-reasonable, handsome, presentable white guy still didn't beat the black Muslim guy (after he'd already had a term), and the Republicans think these clowns can beat the really smart, former big-shot white girl?

Go for it, you guys!

Yep, it all changed just a mere four years later in fact. It's still unbelievable that for decades so many voters placed a high preference on the look and sound of a person rather than what they supported. The success of the Bernie Sanders campaign in polling thus far proves that modern voters are just far more educated and informed than in past decades and actually care more about substance than superficial qualities. Any way you slice it, Reagan was fucking inevitable in that era given people's, well, stupidity.

What polls? And how does this prove anything? Trump is doing well in the polls. We need to stop getting fooled by polling just because it makes us feel good about the one we like.

Modern voters may be more 'educated', but on the whole I'd seriously doubt they are better informed by their media than their counterparts of two generations ago. Seriously doubt it.

Mitt Romney won't be the nominee. The republicans have learned their lesson (through Romney nonetheless)... putting up a "safe candidate" is a sure way to lose.

Perhaps Trump can teach them that putting forward a complete asshat as a candidate is not a much better option.

I don't think they believe Romney was safe though. I'll bet a good number of GOP leaders believe the Mormon thing was the difference.

Last time I made this point, people got mad at me because I criticized Chris Christie for deflecting gambling questions by saying ISIS was more important.

Because he's an "outsider" and is "not afraid to speak his mind," which is apparently all that we need in a candidate, even if he is a massive asshole, a liar, and supports destructive policies and rhetoric.

I'm not sure why these debates are so entertaining but I'm hooked.

Rand Paul has seemed pretty reasonable tonight?

He looks like he wants to cry. Trump walks all over him.
