People would rather have Hillary than anyone else, sadly.

the GOP doesnt want Trump because he will end all the special privaleges they all get from the superpacs and corporations funding them. they wont get all the free stuff for allowing themselves to be puppets.

"Should Mr. Trump clinch the presidential nomination, it would represent a rout of historic proportions for the institutional Republican Party, and could set off an internal rift unseen in either party for a half-century, since white Southerners abandoned the Democratic Party en masse during the civil rights movement."

I've recently switched and decided if I make it to the polls I'm voting for Trump.

With that said, That's exactly what Trump should do. Even if he does lose he should take all that money he's spent and capitalize upon it and create his own party and strip the moderate Republicans away from the Establishment leaving the authoritarian R's with the extremist wing of the party.

Sanders should do the same. He should start the Democratic Socialist party and split the D's, too.

If you think about it, it makes sense.

I'm a registered republican and even I know that most conservatives are either religious from various branches of Christianity that say the other branch is a lie or cult, then there are conservatives that are cultic, then there are common sense atheists, constitutional atheists, constitutional gays, blue collar Bob, white collar "I tithe my pharmaceutical salary", etc. In the Republican party. In the Democratic party, there are only socialists and suffragists and apologetic without-a-backbone Christians and every one who is against common sense. They get along, we don't. A house divided against itself cannot stand. Therefore, the party of hatred and Hellenism is out-classed by far by the party that spends too much time catering for votes instead of keeping their spines intact. Trump's problem is that he feels genuinely hurt when people don't like him. The media attacks him because they know him personally and he, despite what he says, cares about the media. If he didn't believe the world was against him just because the media said so, then he would win. He modifies speech to suffer fools now. I wish he wouldn't.

The reason most Christians like him is not because he's a saint, but because he is without deceit. He says what people think because he's still got a human heart, and it's a grown up responsible heart.

But now he's afraid and that sucks.

I think separation of church and state is a good thing for men. Therefore, the conservatives need to stop whining about who likes who and instead needs to back up Trump in all of his human, vulnerable, and imperfect glory. He doesn't think he's king like children in the left say, and we don't want a Saviour; we already have Him. We just want a real live governmental leader who will work everyday, and work for his country and not everyone else's.

Get your house in order, Republicans. Stop worrying about religion and money and just win this country back for a while at least, please.

I don't know if it would work or not, just saying that some are considering it an option. the republicans are kind of in a hard place at the moment, they certainly wouldn't be able to control trump and too many people will flat out reject cruz. they lose regardless, unless of course, they find a loophole... and what is outlined is the shady, possibly illegal if they can't keep their involvement in bringing that third party candidate into play, loophole they are looking at.

Trump supporters are moderate Republicans?

I just squirted orange juice out of my nose all over my keyboard.....

His appeal is that he isn't moderate but extremist. He reminds me of my brother in law that I tell my kid to stay away from because he's ****** up.

If Trump gets the nomination, more people than ever will come out to vote AGAINST him than we've ever seen in American history, I guarantee you. People that NEVER vote will get off their ass to vote against him.

This is why the GOP is trying to ditch Trump. They want to actually look like they're trying to win.


That failed in 2004 when we heard the same about the even more despised GW Bush against John Kerry. It failed for the GOP 4 years ago when many of us believed we could run a zero like Romney and still beat Obama because he was hated, yet voters stayed home. If Hillary's campaign rests on "I'm not Trump," she loses in an epic fashion... American politics has been consistent in only one thing: You can't win by running solely against another individual, you have to run some manner of positive to get elected. Trump has a laundry list of them, from "Making America Great Again" to restoring America's once strong immigration enforcement to the economy to geopolitical relationship re-examination, agree with them or hate them, at least he's placing offers on the table.

All the Bernsters that I know personally haven't registered to vote. First year that I registered and it's for Trump. Your reality isn't the only one, lol. And I'm in upstate Ny, and let me tell you... the race is between Hillary and Trump here. Sanders means very little here. Too many people know their socialist history around here. And most of the working class, which is most of Upstate Ny, despise Hillary, so...

Trump supporters are all over the board. A lot of them are moderate though. Cruz supporters are the extreme right/religious supporters.

Trump could pull in a lot of Blue Dog Democrats too.

Yes. Trump supporters are moderate. I am exactly dead center on the liberal/conservative - authoritarian/libertarian grid.

Some of us read and research and listen instead of basing our decisions on tidbits and misquotes and mistakes.

And all the Bernsters *I* know are doing crazy things like volunteering to be delegates, many of which haven't even voted once in their entire lives. Now? They're up to their eyeballs in politics in a way I've never seen these folks ever before.

People who join a party are part of the party. If the host of the party decides no one has a choice in the music, then the party goers will crash the party and show up to the new ring leader's party pad wherein he will play the music the party wanted.


Hey. If you don't want to play nice, knock yourselves out. I really don't care if the GOP tears itself apart here. Just stating how things work.

I'm not basing my vote on research, ideology or political positions....that's stupid!

I vote on appearance, attitudes and preconceived ideas.... Trump is one ugly SOB and acts like a fool. It's the American way!!!

I've seen similar, but it seems to be very Alaska, or Pacific NW-centric. My friends and family in the lesser 48 have told me that it's rare to see any Bernie supporters. My Dad drives trucks all day on a fairly busy stretch of interstate along the Mexico border and he just saw his first Bernie 2016 bumper sticker last week. I have family in Pennsylvania and the union folks will likely vote for Sanders, but they're not exactly on fire over it.

This is the perfect example of why people should not support the 'party' system. I can't stand what these people do at their conventions. It's insane and insulting to the people.

In today's world, what you *see* isn't always to be believed.

The people you associate with, the people on your Facebook & Twitter, the news channels you watch, websites you read -- all of it is chosen by you.

We create little "bubbles" around ourselves, and then deny that we even do this. None of us exist in a reality that is unbiased and can see the actual "truth" of a situation.

I don't know anyone who supports Hillary. People do though. How can this be?

Well, obviously I just don't run around in the right circles. In my "reality" Hillary shouldn't even be 1/10th as popular as she is. It makes no sense if I look at the media that comes across my desk, my social media feeds and groups of family and friends.

So when you claim "everyone here supports Trump!" -- make sure you keep in mind that is how YOU view things, from YOUR perspective and limited information and social circles.

I'm still trying to figure out who the hell is voting Hillary...*grumbling*

If you say so. We'll see. Like I told the other poster, I really don't care if the GOP tears itself apart.

To me, it's been a long time coming. The writing has been on the wall for WAY longer than Trump has been running for the Presidency. When you as a party surround yourself with an echo chamber of lies and hyperbole then adopt literally the EXACT opposite policies as the other party instead of your own self-determined ones, then there will be problems. You can only lie about things for so long. Eventually reality sets in. Well Trump is the GOP's reality check.

If Trump isn't a Democratic plant, I'm sure they will be singing his praises come November for exposing the GOP's weakness to the point the party tore itself apart, thus gift wrapping the Presidency (and maybe even the rest of the federal government with the stunt that McConnell is trying to pull right now) to the Democrats.
