21. CajunBlazer, we loved hearing the huge margins

and the possibility of flipping all these conservative states for a giant landslide. And that would be highly desirable, of course. But when it comes down to it, she only has to win, preferably by a decent margin. And those double digits, etc., means she has had a whole lot of room for the various dynamics to play out without endangering her.

But don't forget: The Republican Party already had severe problems with the presidency before this election. Before the party civil war and meltdown, before Trump, there were the terminal democraphic problems of a Republican Party that had dwindled to an embattled white power redoubt. And then came Trump, and then came rejection by the vast majority of minorities, most women, much of the religious right, and of course the dark money backers.

This is Clinton versus Trump. Even assuming many conservatives come out to vote because of SCOTUS, he will lose.

Oh, and another thing that pops into mind. The MSM always steer us wrong. That group-think thing that keeps the cushy jobs of those in the center safe but is death to real, you know, like...journalism. If I'm wrong I'll have far bigger problems facing President Trump as an unbelievable reality than just admitting I'm wrong here, but I actually expect Hillary to win by a respectable margin.

Down ballot, I worry about. Please, please, please let her have at least a Democratic majority in the Senate.
