    I don't see that happening. There's still quite some time before the election. A lot can and typically does happen.

    I would say wait after the Primary, then we'll see the real Trump, and whether he can handle being presidential or not.

    There needs to be a qualifying exam for every candidate. In a fickle world where people vote based on popularity or wanting to back a winner much like a horse race, there should be no chance for someone like Trump to get so far into the race without proving himself to be worthy.

    What do we consider worthy? By law any american born citizen over 35 can run for president.

    Not suggesting anyone should be not eligible to run, but there needs to be other qualifiers to get past stage one. Trump has being running on blatant ignorance and thought bubbles. A candidate should be policy-ready from day one and across domestic and world affairs.

    That's a different problem as elected officials should be held to their word or to properly justify not meeting promises.

    That should be removed so foreign people can take over and with Americans' blessings.

    And Arnold Schwarzenegger would be able to qualify, too.

    As if GOP activists can see clearly. While I won't insist impossible, all the Trump positive polls have been focused on the Republican primary process, the base, not a general election.

    However as someone who is desperate to keep any electable Republican out of the White House, it would be good to know who appeals more to independents- Sanders or Hillary? And btw, regardless of who wins, Trump, Hillary, or Sanders, the **** storm will continue in DC as usual as long as we the people continue to fill the Congress with conservative reactionaries.

    If Trump were to win, and the GOP were to have real principles, I imagine an implosion of the GOP. But just as likely they'd morph into a new power hungry entity, who supports Trump, anything to stay in the light. The Power Justifies The Means.

    Just try to imagine Trump in the oval office, pulling the kind of childish stunt he did with the last debate. He's nothing but a bully, waiting for his chance to bankrupt our country, the same way he has bankrupted so many of the companies who had the misfortune of working with him.

    19 trillion is not bankrupt? Anyways look at the bright side. If we are indeed broke we can no longer afford to keep killing Brown people under the excuse of freedom

    Listened to a eye opening PBS radio broadcast today featuring a Christian talk show host dismayed at the number of evangecals who support Trump because 1) He's not a politician, 2) He calls out the Muslim threat, 3) he tells it like it is, and 4) He's fun. Really? Then they went to a biker bar, where everyone (who knows how many total) had registered Republican so they could vote for Trump because he is anti-establishment.

    And, a significant chuck is owed to itself, equivalent to calling the money you borrowed from your 401K as debt.

    This.

    Throwing out the "19 trillion" number without any context or explaining what it actually means is just fear mongering political trash.
