You're under the misconception I am voting under party lines. No. I am voting the person.


Perhaps that is the problem.

you need to socialize more



And in that joke you reinforced a stereotype Trump is known for.

Not very smart.

If the Indiana primary is representative of a general election, because it is open.

Exit polls said that 50% of those that voted for Cruz or Kasich would not vote for Trump in the general election and 50% would vote for him.

Totals in Indiana open primary with 39.5% reporting:
Trump = 270,552
Cruz = 184,716
Kasich = 41,490
Clinton = 144,009
Sanders = 133,719

So, 50% of those who voted for Cruz and Kasich = (184,716 + 41,490) /2 = 113,103

So, Trump would get 270,552 + 113,103 = 383,655

Clinton + Sanders = 277,728

So, already Trump would beat Clinton, even if all Sanders voters voted for Clinton.
And some Sanders voters said they would vote for Trump over Clinton.

I highly doubt that the other 113,103 republicans not voting for Trump would vote for Hillary. They would likely not vote.

So, Trump would win in a general election against Clinton using this sample scenario.

I'm not sure when it will happen. Maybe after the convention? Maybe during the final hours of the general in November? Possibly during a post mortem next year when the GOP are trying to salvage something from this debacle?

Either way, we are going to find out that this notion of conservative values has always been a chimera. What the GOP had since Nixon, really, was an uneasy alliance between radical religious elements and the working poor -- led by big business interests. Sadly -- our jobless recovery has done nothing to help the working poor (of either party, really) and that coalition has failed.

The working poor values a growing economy that actually reaches down to where they live. That's pretty much all they care about. The same forces which ushered in slick Willy (it's the economy stupid!)are ushering in Donald Trump.

"Conservative values" are a talking point with little or no traction for people who feel under-represented by the GOP conservative party elite. They will reap what they have sewn, and frankly -- it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.

Since this thread is about the Indiana Primary, you could at least try to stay on topic instead of just starting arguments with everyone.

Yea, but that's now how it works you see. Keep the argument going and you keep the people confused. Once I learn how to breathe through my mouth and carry my knuckles closer to my hips, I will see the light and vote accordingly. And by vote, I mean NOT vote since that's what someone here wants.

What stereotype?

Hot women are hot?

Or Clinton prefers other women to Hillary?

Both happen to be true!!!

Possibly.

The problem is that Indiana (a red state) is in no way representative of the country as a whole. In fact, there are far more states where the numbers work against the Republicans.

You are correct that Indiana does a great job of representing how the average GOP voter feels about their party, and their parties "conservative" candidates, however.

This is the swan song of imaginary conservative sorcery, but all bets are off in the general.

I see you're keeping a straight face throughout all this.





What else can I do when all you "Hope and Changers" are slapping-each other on the back?

The Obama supporters fell for it twice. Now those that cried about Obama are falling for the same #.

Straight-face...engage.


You sound like Slick Willie there...

You may have missed three days ago a thread Bill trashing Obama policies in some campaign speak in Indy.

It appears my point has been proven.

Enjoy the circle-jerk guys. I can only take so much idiocy in one sitting.

Don't worry. There's a Hillary thread you can partake in I'm sure. For someone who doesn't like Trump or his supporters, you sure like to hang out in their threads.

Hillary is a joke and her supporters are not very vocal. You guys, on the other hand, support another joke and shout it as loudly as you can.

It's fun to poke idiots while they make a mockery of themselves.
