    If you look at the contestants in each Republican debate you can't help be impressed that the Democrats will win by a landslide. Consider the evidence:

    The Republicans upset immigrants
    The Republicans upset women
    The Republicans upset hispanics
    The Republicans upset people of color
    The Republicans upset the financially challenged

    In fact they upset every group for which they need votes to win 2016.

    Yet you have Trump electrifying Republican crowds with the rhetoric towards the very groups they need to have vote for the party. And because Trump isn't a shill for the corporation donations, he gets to define the talking points the others must run towards. Those are all hot buttons for the very groups the Republicans need support from.

    In truth, putting Trump aside, the only other candidate who breaks free from the corporate donations shackles is Ben Carson. But can he carry the traditional Republican Party voter?

    Advantage Ms Clinton.

    it's by design, the military industrial complex benefits by having democratic war mongers who can endlessly kill brown people and have laws signed that allow for the detainment of American citizens w/o due process w/o a peep from the main stream media.

    The GOP is getting exactly what they deserve. They created this toxic environment with all of their over the top rhetoric and now Trump is cashing in on all of that anger. Here is a comment from the following article which basically nails it perfectly.

    Along both Obama elections wasn't it the financially challenged who argued the most against Obama's politics that would have restricted companies/rich and given welfare to the poor?

    Most likely Hillary will get the nomination, but if the FBI determines that she actually did something illegal with her emails then her campaign will fall apart and there is no one else who can pull off a win at the national level for the Democrats.

    Sanders doesn't have much of a chance in the general election, he is too far left for most people. The possible exception to this is if the Republicans do nominate Trump in which case it will come down to who can do the best job of motivating people to come out, and that advantage has historically gone to the Republicans.

    Other than Sanders and Clinton O'Mally is the only other person running and he doesn't seem to have much of a chance of going anywhere in the primaries, I expect him to drop out after New Hampshire or Iowa unless something major happens.

    The Democrats are counting 100% on Clinton, in '08 she managed to sink her campaign. Back then fortunately the Democrats had Obama and other electable candidates running, this time around though Clinton is the only electable one, so if she sinks her campaign again it will go to the Republicans.

    They could probably win if there's a massive subduction zone rupture that wipes out most of Washington, Oregon, and California.

    The question we should ask is: "Can Marco Rubio beat Hillary Clinton?"

    On this date I still give Hillary the edge. However, it will all come out to the base. I can see how Marco Rubio could excite the GOP base. Hillary does not, and will not--ever, excite the Democratic base. That is why the Democrats are praying for a Trump nomination.

    IMO.

    Rubio aka Jeb's Lapdog would drive this country into the worst depression in it's history through unnecessary wars. As president he would bring on WWIII and most likely the end of civilization on earth.

    Easy win for GOP because:
    • African Americans and Hispanics won't vote for Hillary because she's not black and because she supported gay marriage. They'll stay home.
    • Straight men won't vote for Hillary because she's shrill and unlikable (think every man's worst nightmare of a mother-in-law). They'll vote Republican.
    • The poor won't vote for Hillary because Obama made so many more poor people and the Democrats will get the blame. They'll stay home.
    • Women who care about world events won't vote for Hillary because she screwed up in Benghazi and because she's a liar. They'll vote Republican.
    • Women worried about their lady parts won't vote for Hillary because she enables rape culture by covering for her husband. They'll vote Republican
    • Anybody who cares about the law won't vote for Hillary because...well, she's a Clinton. They'll vote Republican.
    • Finally, anybody who needs to work won't vote for Hillary because we should be in a recession by election time 2016 and the Democrats will own that one. They'll vote Republican.

    How can Republicans win the election in 2016? Because you didn't deliver on any of your promises, thats why, Democrats.

    Your reasoning is very strange at times. When I read this, I thought of a cross between Rush Limbaugh and David Letterman (for his top 10 lists).

    70% isn't bad - http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/obameter/.

    Look the fundamental difference between the parties is that the Democratic party has (slightly) more compassion for your common man, but is much more sensible on social issues - and the Republican party has to move beyond social issues as apart from abortion not enough people care anymore - especially not those in cities where big companies sell their products and hire their staff.

    The problem is that for the GOP supporters in the countryside the social issues are all they really care about, so that's why you have the field you do.

    It must be extremely exhausting the number of hoops your mind must jump thru in order to reach that level of intellectual dishonesty. But of course, that's assuming you're actually using your brain.

    If the Democrats, haven't delivered on any of their promises, then there would be no reason for the Republican blowhards to have been making such a stink for the past seven years.

    Facts are like kryptonite to Republicans, they do want anything to do with them.

    Religion and bigotry seem to trump good sense.

    I'm glad you did not assign any blame to the gridlock party. They are having too many problems as is without being heaped on too.. :rolleyes:

    Another problem is democrats have been raised to believe someone else is always to blame for their issues, Obama is still looking backwards when the country needs someone to lead into the future.

    70% of what? That site shows he kept less than half his promises unless I missed something.

    Serious, or are you pulling my leg? MDCS-Mass Delusional Conservative Syndrome. ;) You unfortunately are 180 out on who is desperately looking backwards.

    How much credit do you award to the GOP? :rolleyes:

    At least the Democrats have promised to work on. If the Republicans win they will have to come up with some other than say no to whatever Obama does since he won't be around to lead the party anymore.
