6 months ago, yours truly stated that Trump had a real shot at the GOP nomination. Needless to say, all parties listening to said bloviator responded with choice tidbits like, "You're crazy, Never happen, Dream on, Jeb's got it in the bag". Well, at this point in time, unless something truly extraordinary happens, The Donald looks like he's going to get it. As for Hillary, it looks like she'll be the candidate for the Dems but the notion of Hillary beating Trump big time, not so fast as seen by the juicy blurbs seen below. :)
One thing Clinton supporters remain in complete denial about (other than the fact most Americans who don’t identify as Democrats find her to be somewhere in between untrustworthy and criminal), is that a significant number of Sanders supporters will never vote for Hillary. Forget the fact that I know a few personally, I’ve noticed several interviews with voters who proclaim Sanders to be their first choice but Trump their second. Are they just saying this or do they mean it? I think a lot of them mean it.
It gets better ...
Trump’s political dominance is highly dependent on his idiosyncratic, audacious method of campaigning. He deals almost entirely in amusing, outrageous, below-the-belt personal attacks, and is skilled at turning public discussions away from the issues and toward personalities (He/she’s a “loser,” “phony,” “nervous,” “hypocrite,” “incompetent.”) If Trump does have to speak about the issues, he makes himself sound foolish, because he doesn’t know very much. Thus he requires the media not to ask him difficult questions, and depends on his opponents’ having personal weaknesses and scandals that he can merrily, mercilessly exploit.
This campaigning style makes Hillary Clinton Donald Trump’s dream opponent. She gives him an endless amount to work with. The emails, Benghazi, Whitewater, Iraq, the Lewinsky scandal, Chinagate, Travelgate, the missing law firm records, Jeffrey Epstein, Kissinger, Marc Rich, Haiti, Clinton Foundation tax errors, Clinton Foundation conflicts of interest, “We were broke when we left the White House,” Goldman Sachs… There is enough material in Hillary Clinton’s background for Donald Trump to run with six times over.
This has the makings of the WWE with Trump having a field day with Hillary. If a miracle happens and Sanders becomes the Dems' candidate, the campaign would become far more substantial as Trump respects Sanders as a smart politician with integrity, something not quite so true with Hillary.
Addendum: I agree with this take on The Donald and Hillary without question.
