It's very simple, people. The GOP movers and shakers don't like this guy, and he doesn't like them. All this is going to do is open up a popular split amongst conservatives, basically cutting conservative election power in half. And the irony is that the more popular he remains, the worse it will be.

Don't believe me? Go look up what happened when a man named Ross Perot ran as an independent and attracted about 19% of the popular vote that would have gone to a guy named George HW Bush... and that's how Bill Clinton became your president.

So when Hillary becomes your next president, she can thank Trump in her inaugural address.

If you're pro-Hillary and think Trump ensures victory - why worry about the other side? Your worry about conservatives comes across as insecurity.

It's always fun to watch the Republicans. I actually think that the Republicans want to lose.

So let them lose behind the guy that best represents their beliefs. Romney and McCain were about as close to the middle as you can get and we see how that turned out.

Your "Blow out lead" poll is from 7 days ago - before the debate.

None of them really want's to be president. What they want is the matching campaign funds and they're out happily. Love of money is why this country is in the shape it's in.

Trump wants to run a year-long Trump Enterprises commercial at taxpayer expense along with getting the campaign funds. Either that or he's a paid operative for Hillary. They are good buddies. It would not be in Trump's best interest to have a president elected that he didn't own, and he's been outbid for the GOP slate by the Koch Brothers (common pronunciation).

Bernie Sanders is the only one on either side who has a clear idea of what he wants to accomplish. I intend to give him all the support I can.

Instead of fretting over Trump, the DNC should think about the state of their party when all they can come up with as their preferred candidate is a 70 year old woman whose only claim to fame is that she is married (in name only) to a President first elected almost 1/4 century ago. The youngest people eligible to vote in this election were not even born then, nor remember the Clinton presidency.

It's not exactly a comforting thought for those looking at dealing with 21st century problems.
