86. You can cite polls until you're blue in the
link, but if you can't carry the independents, or the youth vote that supported you the last time, then things could get ugly.

The GOP are already ugly, and I don't believe that their base will be energized either with their farcical candidates. Perhaps the stalwarts from both parties will vote while the rest of Americans its this one out.
