If the general election is Clinton vs. Trump, I'll be looking very closely at the third party candidates. They have respectively way too much baggage and the completely wrong temperament to be deserving of the office of president - ideologies aside.

Regardless of who is running, I think there is almost 100% certainty that the Republican nominee will carry Georgia easily.

Otherwise, still undecided at this point.

Well these maps were generated from all the existing per state polling of hypothetical GE matchups. I like that the other guy who rejected it refused to post any kind of evidence that counters the data.

The reason I see Clinton losing is she just does not attract independents. All primaries and caucuses thus far the independent vote has gone heavily to Sanders, Some polls are also suggesting upwards of 1/4 of people who are voting in the Democratic Primary process will refuse to support Hillary if she is nominated. Also she has a very real visceral reaction from the right that will create larger turnout from them. They chant things like Anybody but Hillary. Furthermore from the left, she has been typecast through this primary as a corporatist candidate and so many progressives will either hold their nose to vote for her or just not vote. It is a bad recipe.

Trump will lose a lot of Republicans and independents. Two really awful candidates from my perspective. Just about the two worst either party could produce.

Exactly. A lot of people aren't accounting for this as well. Trump's unfavorability is super high as well.

I still think he's a democrat-in hiding by the way. He is really great friends with the Clintons. Obviously, right now, they're going at each other because of the election, but there is plenty of proof out there that they are very friendly towards each other.

I'm just curious how much Trump will shift to the center once he nabs the nomination. I'm also looking forward to Trump vs. Clinton debates. Trump has yet to have to truly debate someone in a 1 on 1 on issues such as foreign policy which is where I think he would falter. I mean, up to this point, he just uses buzz phrases and words..."We will take their oil"...."China, Japan are taking our jobs and they get the benefit when it comes to trading"...."We should destroy ISIS at all costs"..."Mexico is allowing their peoples to come to our country and live off of us while they rape, murder, etc".

Stop using silly national GE polls right now. They're useless. You don't know what's going to happen between now and November.

Trump's hasn't crossed the line with GOP voters because they are GOP voters. The rest of the of the country is at best - turned off by him. Many can't wait for him to go away. Imagine all of the comments that he will make this year - It's only Feb.
