    I know several enthusiastic Bernie supporters who will absolutely not vote for Hillary. Bernie support is not necessarily transferable to Hillary.

    @Meister

    Doesn't take much to understand that low turnout in D primaries and high one for Rs are really two pretty different things and that the numbers of democratic alligned voters staying home but actually going out for the rep primaries is pretty low.

    @aaronvan

    I'm quite sure there are many many republicans who would never vote for Trumps and the other way round.

    Real question is how would Clinton do against Trump ? Sanders vs. Trump ? Clinton vs. Cruz ? Sanders vs,. Cruz ?

    A polls suggest that Clinton or Sanders will beat Trump or Cruz with varying margins.

    For Trump to lose, Clinton will have to find a way to stop the momentum and enthusiastic support of his campaign. For her to win, she's going to have to figure out how to start the enthusiasm for her campaign.

    Trumps momentum might be very strong within a certain loud group, he still wouldhave to impress a large part of the silence majority to win.

    Just like the source of this claim (Breibart) the only people supporting Trump are rabid right wing loons. While this electrifies that base, once the General is in full swing he's going to tank because regular people can't stand the guy. His negatives (even compared to Hillary) are historically off the charts which makes him a gift to the Democratic party, who would've likely otherwise faced a real uphill battle against a Bush or Rubio. It's likely going to be a landslide victory for Hillary and they have nobody but themselves to blame.

    Put up or shut up! Show me a bill Trump wanted her to support or a policy while she was at State that he advocated for. Just one.

    that is for Trump to know and for us to find out, we must elect him to see what's in him :D

    if you think people donate money to politicians just because they are "cute" I have a bridge for sale.

    kind of like Etch-A-Sketch Romney? no idea I do NOT see Trump winning if he continues down the current path.

    We agree. It's the only path he knows and it's the only reason the extremists like him. He'll attempt to shift course but then he'll surely launch into a late night misogynistic Twitter tirade against Hillary. He can't help it, it's who he is and we've definitely already seen "what's in him".

    he might surprise you, but first he still needs to win the nomination, got a feeling the GOP will block him there.

    Very unlikely though, it's going to be Hillary v Trump and a lot of fun to watch this summer.

    And, of course, the independents that will vote for Trump instead of Hillary, Bernie, or either!

    Still, does one poll make a nation? Or are Democrats knowing that the memes that have said over the years that Trump is very liberal having an ironically inverse, resonant effect? :)

    It's far from being over.

    Especially if Paul Ryan gets to act like the SCOTUS circa 2000, the responsibility and aftermath will be on his shoulders:

    Millions of (additional) voters disagree. We don't make the second place finisher the nominee just because his supporters want it. Sorry. If it was a Bernie vs. Trump race I would turn off the TV. Cannot stand the bloviating that either of them do. "What....this..campaign...is.......about" zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Bernie needs a new script.

    It will be interesting revisiting this post in November. Completely left out of your discussion is that Hillary has more votes than any other candidate in the race and that many Republicans won't vote for Trump. In fact, some have even said they would vote for Hillary. The majority of people in minority groups won't be voting for Trump either, so your only hope is if Democrats stay home, while Republicans do not and hold their nose voting for Trump anyway. That seems like a rather risky thing to pin your hopes on.

    While I agree, if I were to look back at my posts here only months ago I recall saying something like "Trump will never win the Republican nomination, even they're not that crazy" and now look. :eek:

    Wow, how the gullible are so easily... gullible.

    Let's drop some facts on you, courtesy of Nate Silver et. al at FiveThirtyEight:

    http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/primary-turnout-means-nothing-for-the-general-election/

    So your stating that because voter turnout is higher with the Reds than the Blues, because there were nearly 20 candidates to choose from in the primaries, that the Blues are going to get trounced in the General election is a farce. You should consider holding fire until the primaries are done and the march towards the general election has started.

    BL.
