Never claimed that Trump will win the nomination. The people get a chance to vote for a candidate in the GOP primaries. Totally unlike the DNC where the SuperDelegates have already picked King Hillary as nominee. I can't imagine why anyone would support this sort of nonsense. Of course Mr. Silver ignores this as well.

As far as being liked, the polls speak for themselves. Get back to us when any other candidate can fill an arena with 10s of thousands.
Sanders repeatedly does that.

Sanders is no longer a real candidate since DNC is going to nominate King Hillary regardless of the voters & primaries. Only a few hundred show up to see him now.

I'm not a Republican but I did answer. Hillary. Just because you think it's not a valid answer only means you think it's not a valid answer.

Democrats have a built-in edge in the Electoral College. But it guarantees them nothing for 2016

1 there aren't a hell of a lot of "swing states." Giving that extra Nebraska vote to the GOP, all that remains are 10 states, totaling 116 electoral votes, that have offered their electoral votes to both parties since 2000.

2 the Republicans have to win the outsized majority of those "swing" electoral votes to win the presidency. If the Democrats can hold onto just 24 percent of the electoral votes "in play," they win the White House.
It's okay if they do. Chances are the senate and house will remain steadfast republican and after your guy is gone and the old hag is in, we will neutralize and quietly work on getting her convicted. Only a matter of time. Maybe you should stay home next time. The spending party is coming to an end. Fall in, drop the EBT card, back to work for your goodies.

We can work with that.

Senate will flip. Republicans will loose 6 states.

House is going to stay republican but the popular vote in house races will be around 53-54% democratic angering voters who want to do away with gerrymandering and big money from the Kochs.

Once the MSM and social media do their thang, she will.

Um, you haven't succeeded at that yet with a Republican House and Senate and a Democratic President. How you think it will finally happen once she's a fairly elected president is boggling.

It wasn't packed at all and those numbers are way over stated. Look at this photo, people only seated on court where he welcomes Muslim woman who supports him. Not enough people to pull out the stands. But I do give him credit, this is more than Hillary Clinton.

Unfortunately for Democrats is aside from the point. The DNC SuperDelegates will insure that Hillary Clinton is nominated.

The Democrats loose by having Clinton win and crating a scenario for even larger congressional and state wins in 2018.
