Holy ****.

With the heat continuing to pile out, CNN is all over what appears to be the biggest game changer yet: Mike Pence could be considering dropping out of the race, leaving Donald Trump with no running mate.

This follows a story that went live on CNN's site just after 9 p.m. ET alleging that senior GOP officials are trying to convince him to drop out.

The media spin is getting to fantastic levels.
I'm not from the US, but this is the strangest election ever witnessed.
One should really take a few steps back and recap what has influenced the election up to this day.

If you really want my opinion, the worst thing that you should worry about is what FBI director Comey said.
That, beside all the media bs is the most worrying political influence I have ever seen.

Never has there been a candidate as bad as Donald.

"Sources" aka Crap we made up.
Without women the Republican Party can't win the house or the senate going forward.

I think Clinton is trying to spread misinformation like she did with Bernie, apparently some quotes about people dropping Trump support have been found to be false, RNC is still planning to fund him, and Pence probably isn't dropping out. These "sources" probably come from Hillary.

Clinton has nothing to do with this. She's smart enough to let this play out on it's own.

Both sides have people that seem so boastful about how their side will win regardless of any true evidence because empty belief and pop culture numbers on a chart is sufficient... it's as ludicrous as people who bet in a casino or on a horsetrack.

Do people gamble? Maybe you should. Yet you haven't and won't because, belief aside, even you really do not know how events will play out because the only thing people do know is that this is the most bizarre election ever. Only taking the current probability based on swing polls that will likely change again a few times back and forth over the next month and elevating it on a pedestal. It's like having a tornado watch and saying how 50 huge tornadoes are about to drop down. Or thinking Leonard Nimoy will become a Vulcan, it's ******* crazy regardless.

Please vote for Hillary Clinton on November 8th. Thank you!

It's politics. All political parties invariably do, to one level or another, and, sadly, I'm not sure I can be wholly against the notion since I've also observed a lot of people over the years. :(

CNN, the one everyone says is Clinton-biased but other sources are chiming in too...
“Right now, Donald Trump is the only Republican in the United States whom Hillary Clinton can defeat,” said a North Carolina Republican — who, like all insiders, completed the survey anonymously. “Trump is the best candidate on the ballot for Democrats in 2016.”

“The creepy clown walking around Green Bay would beat Hillary Clinton in 30 states,” a Nevada Republican added. “Fortunately for Hillary, she is running against Donald Trump.”
Talk about delusional...

Hmmm, either you don't understand... Or-- nah, I don't need to say a single syllable of the two other major possibilities.

I will be free and vote for whom I want. Which might be for the same person as you, you just don't know that. But we are not a dictatorship, nor would you be accepted as a dictator. Or me for that matter but I only point stuff out. I tend not to tell others what to do. Not deliberately so, anyway. Maybe if I got really mad, but I don't seem all that mad right now...

She has a history of spreading misinformation through her news networks. Simply suggesting it as a possibility, it's the same way she screwed Bernie over.
Why would Clinton take the risk of getting involved when Trump is imploding on his own.

Interesting. However I think at this stage if the republicans try to replace Trump they'll not look controlled enough to win the presidency, and maybe they'll still be damaged in other races.

However in two/four years time. Perhaps.

Clinton is also so hated that if it starts looking like she will win by a large margin a lot of the people voting for her to stop Trump will either stay home or feel free to go third party. There is a chance that might mean the vote gets diluted enough that she wins an EC landslide with only 40% of the vote but more likely her numbers end up closer to Obama 2012 with Gary Johnson picking up one or two traditionally Red states.

Comments like this are too hilarious, they fall into the category of Hillary delirium syndrome. If Hillary is so powerful and in control of the news networks, how is it that Barack Obama beat her in 2008?

Hearing Kellyanne is considering the same.
Could be. She refused to go on air this morning sending out Rudy instead. Although I'm not sure how much credibility someone that defended the "legitimate rape guy" had to begin with...particularly on this issue now. Kind of ties it all together.

I don't think it was Hillary who scrubbed all of Mike Pence's appearances from Trump's website yesterday. But they are back up now, so maybe it was Russian hackers. :D
