    Should Trump drop out and let Pence run for president instead for the GOP?

    WSJ editorial - "As for Mr. Trump, he needs to stop blaming everyone else and decide if he wants to behave like someone who wants to be President — or turn the nomination over to Mike Pence."   Does having Mike Pence run for Prez be better for the country or not?

    It was a great editorial. The main point being that if Reagan, and the Bushes can get elected with media bias, why is Trump spending so much time talking about it?   Ridiculous.  As Republicans, we accept that reporters are not our friends. Get over it.  Talk issues. 

    I would prefer John Kasich over Pence.  Not sure how the party rules could work that out. But Gov. Kasich would be up in all of the swing states except for Virginia.  He's an adult...

      I agree, all this talk about Donald Trump not doing well and he should drop out. Really, he beat 18 professional politicians, while Hillary had a hard time just beating Bernie. Not sure whether he really did lose, This talk is from scared Democrats.

      Brad, if every poll had Trump up by 10, would you then give them credence?  I bet all you Trump people would be shouting about how great Quinnipiac and Marist polls are.  How do you claim that he is doing so great if you don't like polls?

      You would think so, but you would be wrong, as far as I am concerned. I would do away with polls period, they are just for the sheep. I would also put a blackout on election day for any interim results, it also has adverse affects on voting.

    I would love to see Donald turn the nomination over to Pence. That would take a miracle, but hey, hope springs eternal, right?

    Pence could take this country in the right direction. Clinton and Trump cannot and will not. Neither of them are ethical enough to do so.

      Pence is too right wing  for me. Says no to abortion even if the kid has Down's syndrome

    Of course not, why would anyone want Pence for president over Donald Trump. Using the WSJ has no credibility, they couldn't even predict the 2008 economic meltdown, and the stock market is there reason to be. Where was the WSJ when the dot com bubble was building up.

    Predicting the presidency is not in their wheelhouse, and as I mentioned they are not even credible in their wheelhouse.

    Senator Obama kept blaming Bush and the Republicans, and that is especially common with the democrats. Now you are suggesting that because Trump is blaming Obama and the democrats that it is something different.

    Trump has blamed the appropriate people, it is too bad if they are your people. But nonetheless they are to blame. You would have to give examples of ALL those unknown people your are alleging Trump is blaming.

    Trump does look like someone that is running for president, he just isn't being manipulated by the media, and his opponents. How can you even make such a  statement. He powered past 18 professional politicians. While Hillary could barely get past Bernie Sanders. I am not sure that she even accomplished that goal. Pence is only on the ticket to be able to show Trump around the WH and the Oval Office. Make the rounds of congress, and settle in, he is by no means a presidential candidate.

    These kinds of baseless statements are just subliminal social engineering, and they are usually done by those that are backing a real loser. The left made a bad mistake backing Hillary Clinton, as she is weighted down with too much baggage.

    She voted for the Iraq war, she had zero accomplishments as the NY senator, and less than those accomplishments as sec of state. She is a political failure, Hillary Clinton 2008 cannot be reanimated into a serious presidential candidate.

    The reason that you and your sources are claiming Trump is losing badly is because he is actually doing just the opposite, The only results that count are those ballots on election day. Why would anyone want to elect Hillary Clinton 1.1 as president of the US? Only are enemies.
