As of the most recent Gallup poll last month, 25% of Americans identified as Republicans. Trump only had about 40-45% of the Republican vote. Im no mathematician, but thats around 9% support of the general electorate. His supporters need to stop pretending he has some huge support base, thats a TINY percentage of the general electorate lol

I was just listening to CNN. Trump has gotten 11 million votes. You need 65 to 70 million votes to be President. He's a long way off.

By those standards Clinton is in trouble then as she is not even close to that being close to Trump's.

Trump had 8 times more Republican competitors than Hillary had when the respective parties started...Trump almost getting as many votes as Hillary when he had 8 times more competitors is very impressive. Latest poll has Trump and Hillary within 1 point of each other.

There's no use trying to school them - haters will hate and unfortunately look at a glass half empty instead of half full. They don't sit and think about the positive consequences and future years of a Republican controlled White House down the road but only think of their hatred for someone who has beaten their chosen candidates today.

I am not a Trump fan, but do you really think the math works that way? No Republican voters that voted for another candidate now support him, no independents, no democrats??? And if so, why not apply it to Hillary?

Hillary is struggling to win a primary that was rigged for her.

Straws - grasp them.

Yes, and most of the time she has been in a two person race.

Most of the time Trump has been in a 6 to 17 person race.

the majority of those 11 million votes were by those on the left and independents.

the true base, the gop base, voted cruz in the 2016 primaries, not trump.

trump won in open primaries which isnt bad for the general since you can vote for anyone.

the problem is the base wont be there for him and he wont have enough dems and independents to get him in.

I am no political wizard, but I would like Trump to become the president today, because of the issues he stands for!
