Pence, a career politician who voted for all free trade agreements and amnesty...and the Iraq war

Yet Trump supporters are hailing it as a good pick

Indeed.
They hate the "establishment" until they love the "establishment."

that's like saying Clinton needs a WHITE MALE V.P. to close the gap with white men....that's silly, she will pick a v.p. that makes her party happy.


people in the general don't vote for V.P. .....V.P. choice is more to united and excite the party.
Joni Ernst would have been the perfect choice. She turned him down. As for Clinton's pick, she is the clear winner in the VP media battle now with this boring and irrelevant pick by Trump. I expect her to announce on the night of Trump's acceptance speech to grab his headlines.

He only back pedaled after business threatened to leave the state.

The right wasn't happy about it either because unlike in NC he backpedalled pretty much right away.

Clinton's poll numbers vs Trump are really pathetic at this stage so her VP really matters.

Joni Ernst was viewed as a Palinesque figure. She was never a serious contender. Also a Happy Days name wasn't going to help the ticket.

I'm a little surprised about the comments about how people 'don't vote for VP'.


Technically, true (of course, the Electoral vote is different). However, Senator McCain certainly lost some votes when he picked Ms. Palin. After all, he was older with a history of recurrent skin cancer, and many did not like what they discovered about Ms. Palin, and in no wise did not want her to be president.


Mr. Trump and Ms. Clinton are not young by any means. While Mr. Trump may well be the healthiest man to have ever run for president of the United States (!!), he is 70, when health problems can strike quickly. I think that the VP for each candidate is very important.


I do commend Mr. Trump for not choosing Newt. Not only is Newt 74 (and looks like Death eating a graham cracker), but he would have added little to the ticket; plus, the media would have had fun bringing up his past scandals. Remember when he was reprimanded in Republican-controlled House way back when? 192 Republicans turned against him in that vote.


If the nominee were a young Rubio or a Canadian named Cruz, the VP slot would not hold as much interest for many.

Talking Pence good Balance for Trump!

Good choice if this is true. The Newt maybe Chief of Staff?


What I find interesting is Clinton has or had the lead up to now, but as the race narrows Trump is gaining.


While Clinton with here dubious past is losing supports. Even Bernie supports are frustrated with Sen. Sanders of sleeping with the enemy.


This election cycle is not for the faint hearted!
