I agree.

The closest we have had in American history was Andrew Jackson, and he was widely considered to be the worse president ever. Ironically, both Donald Trump and Andrew Jackson had demonstrated little understanding of their allotted constitutional powers.

AJ, I believe, fully understood the powers theoretically; he simply ignored them when it suited him to do so. Trump has not a clue. But they both share the extremity of "I want" sociopathologically.

It amazes me how many Republicans still maintain party loyalty

There is nothing Trump can say or do to dissuade them

Many GOP, who are not the crazies in the Far Right and Alt Right grouping, simply are trying to survive Donald and pick up the pieces.

Donald J Trump is not a professional politician. As for running the worst campaign in history, he beat 15 other opponents in the Republican primary. There were such notables as the son and brother of a former president. There were senators and governors in that race. He's within a few points of a professional lifelong politician to win the highest office in our land. Win or lose, Trump has run a hell of a campaign.

...and you're voting for who?

Already voted for Clinton thank you

Now save us from the "Clinton has been just as bizarre and out of control as Trump" comparisons

I have to agree

I never thought his campaign would last two weeks. But I underestimate the gullibility of Republican Party faithful

He won the nomination by sucking on the worst fears of the far and alt rights.

We are talking about the general campaign, and he has failed abysmally, whereas Kasich, Bush, Rubio, and, yes, even Cruz would be 5 to 8 points ahead.

As long as the GOP will not reach out honestly to women and minorities, it will not win the WH.

Given all the corruption that has been revealed about Hitlery (with even more to come) I can't believe that you posted that with a straight face. There is nothing more that could be revealed about this criminal klunt that you wouldn't justify......how fucking pathetic. You have some serious chutzpah for even attempting (and lamely at that) to chastise ANYONE for picking Trump over Hitlery......what is your I.Q? About 77?? 78??? 81 max.........

Jake Smarmy, define "far right"....what is it that they believe that puts them so far "out there" and what has Trump stated in his platform that makes him "far right"....explain yourself so I can rip your points apart one by one because we all know that you are one stupid commie fuck....bring it....let's see that list.

Who are you, dale: a nothing. Trump is losing, as well he should. You cannot 'rip' anyone apart because your brain does not work at all well.

You think that he's failed abysmally? He's up against a career politician who has spent her life in politics. He's a novice against the Clinton Political Machine. The fact that he's even in contention speaks to his success as a candidate. In case you forgot, he beat Kasich, Bush, Rubio, and Cruz.

You can be the best team in baseball but if you can't win the primaries, you don't get to play in the World Series.

And then we have clinton, who is the most corrupt nominee this country has ever seen. The gullible stupid will vote for her though.

the far right clowns cannot understand sucking off the far and alt rights is not the same thing as a general campaign

Trump is a failure. He should have won easily but he is going to get his campaign kicked in and burned down on election day

Everything pointed to a GOP win if a generically sound candidate could pivot to right of center to get women and minorities included in a consensus with white men. Error | US Message Board - Political Discussion Forum

Donnie Two Times simply went the other way.

"Many Republican-minded voters were desperately waiting for the pivot and would have lapped up any small words or gestures. Instead, Trump alienated potential supporters from these new groups even more than he had during the primaries.

Or take the way he has managed his staff. In a few months, he went through two teams at the top and is now on his third campaign manager. He has fewer than half as many field offices as Clinton, limited fundraising, and consistently weak and poorly produced ads. The two biggest innovations in campaigning in recent years have been “get out the vote” efforts and big data. Trump’s campaign is underinvested in both. Yale University political scientist Alan Gerber, who has pioneered research in this area, notes that converting potential voters into actual voters requires “volunteer phone banks and face-to-face canvassing, tactics that require planning, supervision and sustained effort to undertake at scale.” The Trump campaign scores very poorly on this front, he said.

But he is a builder! He is building a movement! We swears it!

Oh and apparently he is already closing up what little shop he has. Difficult to turn out the vote if your organization closee before the election

Every time I came close to committing to voting for Trump the Ass Clown he did something dumb....
The guy seemed to sense that he was moving in the right direction and then seemed
to say what the fuck am I doing....

And I was brought back to an earlier thought...
This guy doesn't want to win the election.
This is about stirring up the pot and getting people set up for his next big thing....

He went through all the changes in his campaign management
and ended up with two people who never ran a national campaign...
He never set up a real ground game...
He spent very little on an ad campaign..
He seemed to fund this whole campaign on the cheap....

He was up against a Democrat opponent who was ready to be defeated.
Most of the country didn't care for her....

Then along came Trump...

The Republican party must be bouncing off the walls here....

The funny thing is that Trump even with all his nonsense is as close as he is...

Imagine if Trump really wanted to win this thing.

The one certain thing developed during this election is to put to rest the phrase, "Country First", joining "Big Tent" in the abyss of foolish slogans. It's clear that both radical and establishment Republicans put Party First, and the American People a distant second.

Now Trump is pushing a "new deal" for blacks he once denied housing, and Latino's he once called rapists and murders (& Latina's/women he demeaned for their appearance).

What is obvious is his traducement of these ethnic groups and women attracted the many who voted for his nomination, rejecting more than a dozen other's who sought the nomination, each with few exceptions, pushing an agenda tried, tired and extreme but without racism and bigotry.

Will the once GOP survive? Or is civil war within the party sure to destroy it? The one and only way for the Republican Party to survive is to wean itself from the extreme elements which moved it so far out of the main stream of America's traditional ethos.

And, if the control the H. of Rep. and the Senate remains under the control of the "Freedom Caucus (lol, aka the Tea Party) and they continue to reject civil debate and compromise, this great experiment in government has a dark future. Hate and fear is no way to run a political party or a nation.
