Perceptive and relevant analysis of the likely outcome and the reasons for that outcome. As someone who fervently hopes Trump does not win in November, you've enabled me to breathe just a little bit easier! :)

I completely agree. Well said.
"So there is NO WAY Hillary is winning the popular vote."
However Al Gore won the popular vote in 2000 and George W. Bush became president.
What many people fail to realize is it's the 270 Electoral college state votes that determine who wins.
The first part of your comment worried me, as it seemed to make an objectively valid case for a Trump victory, but when you started talking in conspiratorial terms about vote rigging in favour of the Democrats, I knew I could dismiss it.
I would be a lot happier with an FU to the ruling class if the choice wasn't a mentally unstable sociopath.
The thing that frightens me is that people are voting for Trump to give a big FU to Washington, but they're forgetting that they're going to be stuck with the guy as President afterwards. And no one is looking at what his character is really like.
I agree, Marisa. They may want to solve one problem, but they will replace it with a much bigger one.
Really, getting stuck, we already got stuck with Obama and Hillary is an even worse Obama. What are you people thinking. Hillary has NO Accomplishments and she has failed at everything but selling the US to the highest bidder.
Greensleeves not conspiracy theory, just fact. Just like the Democrat Party worked behind the scenes to ensure Hillary beat Sanders, the entire establishment, from the Media to Washington D.C. and most of all the Electoral College will ensure it.
Ken, good stuff.
It will certainly be interesting in Nov.
I personally was so disgusted, I refuse to participate.
I left the U.S. 2 yrs ago. I figure the U.S. is doomed.
2007/08 will be a minor blip to what's coming down the pike.
Ugly ugly ugly
Scott, if Trump were not someone they felt they could use to get all the angry-at-Washington voters behind, and then destroy/disgrace him in the media (as they are now) and hand the election to the establishment favorite, he would've never made far

Shyron ~ Trump Can't LEGALLY Hold the Presidency however, Democrats, Indies & Republicans "MUST TURN Out the VOTE" for Hillary in NOVEMBER to ENSURE his LOSS & also to send a MESSAGE that another Disgrace of his KIND will NEVER be Tolerated A
Bush won in 2000 for 3 reasons.
1. Gore lost his own state of TN.
(Bill Clinton won that state twice.)
Anyone who can't win their own state after being a congressman/senator doesn't deserve to win!
2. He refused help from Bill.
3. Ralph Nader
Yup. Voting indie helped elect bush. Third parties usually helps elect who you dont want!

Trump may eek out a win with the popular vote, many people have turned on the media as they have Washington... there is no trust there.
But it doesn't matter what the vote is, this election will be handed to Hillary by the Electoral College.

Could you give an example of how Trump could do worse?
Anyone who asks a national security expert, "What's wrong with using nukes?", is someone who could do much worse.
We don't know, because he has avoided giving any concrete information on what he plans to do - and even if he had, he's shown he's willing to tell any lies necessary to gain power. So I believe he will break all promises as soon as he's got power.
@ Scott Bateman: You link says Trump asked this, "citing an unnamed source who claimed he had spoken with the GOP presidential nominee." Most such allegations are someone "citing an unnamed source who claimed he had spoken with..."

The question isn't so much about who you (want) to win.
Which candidate do you believe will get the 270 Electoral votes to win? Do you really (believe) Trump (will) win?
Some folks believe with emotion/desire instead of data & states history.
Of course I do. Obama is failing and flailing, and Hillary is the clone of Obama.
All of the democrat party has failed the US and the people, and it is only the media, which is favoring Clinton that makes it look like she is winning.
