Do you know how O'Bama beat Romney? Do you understand how that deficit will only grow with Trump v Hillary?

The delusion is real.

Dems love mindlessly absorbing Hillary newspeak.

These are pretty much the same people predicting a Trump victory.

Please tell me how Trump will better Romney's performances in the swingiest of swing states?

Ohio - 57% non-Hispanic Whites voted for Romney
Florida - 60% non-Hispanic Whites voted for Romney
Virginia - 61% non-Hispanic Whites voted for Romney

Romney absolutely crushed it with the demographic Trump panders exclusively to, yet lost decisively on Election Night. The three states above? They went to Obama--a divisive incumbent sitting on nearly 8% unemployment, and a man whose own popularity had dipped from 2008. Obama was ripe for a loss, yet cruised into the WH.

You could argue Hillary is no Obama, but she certainly has a large, loyal following--she even won the popular vote when she squared off against Obama in 2008.

Trump has no realistic shot at the presidency. It's a pipe dream.

So it's universal consensus fact that Dems only like illegal Latino immigrants because it means cheap restaurant experiences and more Dem voters?

Go look for post 2012 videos of Fox News hosts lamenting their approach to Hispanics. Now explain to me how Trump will be better? It's no surprise the establishment has been propping up Rubio since the last election. Trump is a disaster for the Republicans. He could literally destroy the party in the most hilarious fashion. He's stripped away all the veiled racism and ignorance of previous candidates and just thrown it out in the open. This is going to be a historic election. Very exciting.

Trump's share of the minority vote would undoubtably be the lowest on record for a GOP candidate. Can you at least admit that?

Romney captured a paltry 17% of the minority vote, and he wasn't running around retweeting neo-Nazis, planning mass deportations, making anchor baby jokes, or calling for the ban of an entire religion.

Trump would have to win an even larger share of the non-Hispanic White vote just to lose as badly as Romney did.

Anything less, and the landslide is on.

They love pandering to the minorities just to get votes. They don't want what is best for this country except for money and power.

Trump spent $5 million so far.

Hilary just received another donation...she already spent $50 million.

Super pac money is pouring in too.

The only people who thought Mittens had a chance were the idiots who listened to Karl Rove/Faux News.

I don't know why people are laughing at Trump for destroying the party. I do believe his dominating that party but that party destroyed itself.

Lets not act like this is a knock against Trump. You guys just refuse to acknowledge his dominance over a political party.

He would destroy the Democratic party too if he ran that way.

Maybe you're not familiar with his stump speeches? Especially those from last August-September?

No point even arguing with you. You don't live in America and you've never voted. You spend all day trolling a basketball internet message board on American politics and gender bashing. I mean, what's the point?

In 2012, there were only five states that were decided by less than 5 points. The Democrats won four of them.

1. Florida: Dems by .6%

2. Ohio: Dems by 2

3. North Carolina: Repubs by 2

4. Virginia Dems by 3

5 Colorado Dems by 5

If all the other states hold and Republicans win 5 out 5 of these states, the Democrats win the Presidency.

Trump is dominating the primaries with the media black out too. They are trying to give him less airtime.

So in order to get airtime he bluntly tells the truth. The media do not like blunt truth.

They like to influence more than give information. They are doing the same with Bernie.

If I didn't follow this election closely, I would know nothing about Bernie.

There is a reason why American gets labeled as a dumb country. It's those dumb liberals making us look bad. Bottom of the barrel in education with their 'common core.'

Do you have specific sources and quotes of Donald Trump being racist?

I wish to be more informed in my votes. Perhaps I will vote for a democratic candidate if Trump truly has said racist statements
