Any cable news network would be proud to host a DNC-sponsored debate whenever asked as they run circles around everything else those networks air in terms of ratings...yet Debbie contended recently that tonight's debate, for example, had to air on the Saturday before Christmas against an NFL game because there weren't any other options.

Can't wait for Hillary to show her double sided nature when she goes after Bernie on live television over this "scandal" from his campaign when he basically did her a service at the first debate by brushing aside the e-mail issue as a distraction from the real issues.

The massive omnibus bill is another betrayal of the Republican base by the establishment. They're so out of touch with their own electorate. They just handed Trump a 1 trillion dollar campaign contribution.

Could it be that the Republican base is out of touch with reality?

Right, because Trump is so small government?! Who is out of touch here?

I feel it's this attitude that is what's out of touch.

Politics used to be about compromise. You get two (or more) parties together to try and reach a deal/agreement that benefits their base. Like life, you can't always get what you want. So you meet somewhere in the middle, or close to the middle.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose out. The point is to make a case that can hold up to review of potential flaws....you know, so it's a good deal.

Instead, it's ALL OR NOTHING. If it doesn't fall into an ideal, then cannot support it no matter what.

Everyone is to blame.

My hope, and a few others have said this, is that Trump blows up the GOP, and we get a more moderate conservative base. One that actually wants to curb spending, but doing so in a smart manner (like the military budget), instead of killing all the social programs. Cause really, it's the poor people that are fucking everything up.

It would also be nice to rid the party of it's crazy religious base too. Let them have their own party, and see if they can get elected on what they stand, instead of the hijacking of the conservative party that happened decades ago.

So that's my hope with Trump. Blow it up, put it back together again.

I'm actually a registered Republican (it's so I can engage in sabotage and I live in a heavily blue state, Oregon, so it doesn't matter) and I'm voting for Trump in the GOP primary because if he wins the nomination it will destroy the GOP. Which at this point will actually be a good thing because the GOP needs to self-destruct so a rational center right party that isn't beholden to the nutjobs of this country will take its place.

You all are getting your wish, because the Republican party is fracturing as we speak. It is too late for anybody except Trump or Cruz in the Presidential Primary. The Democrats already have a playbook to taking on a Bible-Thumping Conservative Texan like Cruz. If Trumpocalyspe occurs out of the ashes of Cleveland all bets are off.

The traditional metrics signal problems with his favorability among women and Hispanics. On the flip side he is generating enthusiasm among voters that have been disappeared from the ranks of either voting block in the past several elections. Mainly rural whites from Blue States in the rust belt i.e. PA-OH-IN-MI-IL-WI-MN. 7,000,000 of these voters didn't show up for Romney (count in the "Mormonism is a cult" Evangelicals). Hispanics may not matter much in PA, but the "lunch-Bucket Blue Collar crowd" could swing the state into a battleground.

The Democratic party is shedding some of those blue-collar voters that formed the traditional base of the party from FDR onward. The Democrats have a fracture as well in retaining these voters as well, who aren't on board with the leftward lurch the party has taken since Clinton. Increased immigration is threatening these pro-union voters, who may be more inclined to get in bed with a "populist, shoot from the hip" Trump, rather than a Bible Thumping Conservative.

Just be careful what you wish for.

Well you got that right, i suppose. I had no problem voting for Romney last time around. Would do it again if i had to do it over again too. He was certainly flawed and probably out-of-touch with the majority of the country, however, he isn't insane like the clown car we have this time around.

I do think TRUMP! can win it all though im not sure how it would play out. I mean, Hillary should win it all, but i can see it going either way. I have been wrong before so who knows.

As for Cruz, fuck no, no way in hell. Fuck te6 Cruz, what an awful person he is. Smart..yeah sure. Horrible, awful, snake oil salesman, televangelist stealing money from the old people after scaring them to death, hypocrite, bigot, homophobe, etc.....yeah...he's all that too. Fuck him.

You know things are really fucked up if a guy (me) who has voted for the republican in every general election since he was old enough to vote is pulling for a.....CLINTON! <----

Yeah.....its that bad with the GOP. Fuck them and the crazy horse they rode in on.

For whatever reason, I wouldn't have imagined you to be into accelerationism.

Why should Clinton apologize for speaking her mind? Isn't that what everyone loves about Trump?

Why on earth would anyone vote for Trump for any reason? Jokes do not govern well.

I'm only voting for Trump in the primary. My state, if I recall correctly, is one of the last states to hold their primary. The nominee will be pretty much decided by the time I vote. And because of the electoral college, I could vote for Trump in the general election and it would make no difference. My state is heavily blue, there's no way it's going for Trump.

But I stand by my belief that nominating Trump will destroy the GOP.
