Question: If people are so certain that Trump would beat HRC (or Sanders), then why...

are Republicans so freaked out about him?

They must know something we don't.

Honestly, I don't think Trump beats either of our candidates.

I just don't.

Note: About the polls? They don't matter much right now because the political landscape changes daily.

Frankly, Cruz and Rubio are much more frightening to me.

Sanders supporters - IF Hillary wins the nomination & she chooses a solid liberal like Sherrod Brown

...will you support the ticket?

Why or why not?

Newsflash: Southern and Western states are more populous and representative of the Democratic Party!

I see how some people are belittling the Southern primaries, but they fail to realize and/or accept two truisms:

First, Southern and Western states are more populous and diverse, a true reflection of the Democratic Party electorate.

and

Second, NO Democratic Party candidate--I don't care if it's Jesus H. Christ himself--can win ANY nomination without the support of a sizable portion of minority voters or women.

As a child of the American South, I resent the bigotry. I resent the arrogance.

I ask that we respect all Democratic voters, whether a supporter of Bernie or Hillary supporter

...or neither.

HUGE thanks and appreciation to Bill Maher and Michael Eric Dyson!

They made cogent arguments regarding race, Hillary Clinton, and the politics of destruction.

They both explained perfectly why race (over class) matters and why the black electorate (in general) vote strategically and practically.

As Charles Blow brilliantly explains:

And Jonathan Capehart's outstanding piece:

I've never liked this Republican asshole, but this is a new low with racist actions on behalf of this jerk.
