    Trump Touts Poll Showing 68% Of His Supporters Would Support Indy Run-

    Trump touts new poll showing appetite for third-party bid | TheHill

    Naturally, the chances of Trump breaking his Pledge and running as an Independent if he lost the GOP Nomination would depend on...

    A. him being an egomaniac.

    B. him being a guy who holds a grudge like a sociopathic Mafioso (against an RNC he felt "stole" his Nomination).

    C. him having enough money to spend on a campaign that propped up his ego and/or he used as revenge against the GOP Establishment, by handing the election to Hillary on a silver platter.....with full china setting as well.


    But, hey, that's crazy talk. NONE of that sounds like The Donald.....does it???

    At this point, it doesn't really look like he has much chance of losing the Republican nomination. I never would have believed it, but truth is often stranger than fiction.

    Google "GOP panic Trump" and see how many hits you get.....even from Fox News.

    All Trump has to do is "hold out" (i.e. keep his leads in IA, NH, SC, FL, a few others) for about 60-70 days....enough time for the Caucuses/Primaries to get rolling and him to win them handedly.....

    and he'd be unstoppable.

    Just two, two and a half more months. Then the question of 2016 would be...

    "How much re-decorating of their old room will Bill and President Hillary do during the Transition?"

    Nah. FiveThirtyEight remains convinced that Trump commands about 35-40% of the Republican electorate, tops.

    Beyond that, he is seen as one of the most unlikable men in the country; his opposition is crystalized.


    Between Cruz siphoning support from Trump in the long run and the wave of campaign shut-downs that will come no later than March ...

    there's plenty of room for an anti-Trump coalition to build. All it requires is support from the RNC and a lack of absolute GOP incompetence.
    Thanks from GordonGecko and Wonderer

    Good luck with that.

    Crazy talk nuthin'. the establishment republicans deserve to lose their party. The establishment leadership is simply serving the wealthy class and not the working class that make up the majority of their voters.

    Two things VITAL for the RNC to stop Trump-

    1. Cruz splits the Trump vote...somehow. Comes out of Iowa and gains traction for South Carolina and the Super Tuesday States and the Trump vote is split...and thus allows...

    2. All the other "Establishment" guys ....get out....get out and rally behind ONE sane (or atleast "more sane") Establishment candidate...likely Rubio. Jeb, Christie, Kasich, etc.....bow out...and throw all their support AND DONORS to Rubio.

    I still think that Rubio would lose in a landslide, assuming that the GOP can sink Trump's campaign.

    Dutch....almost...almost...you and I probably want the same two things-

    1. Trump as GOP Nominee.

    and even 2. The Democratic Nominee (likely Hillary) to win in November 2016.


    #1 because I know Trump is easiest to beat Repub (topping Cruz). #1 for you because Trump sounds the tune that guys like you in the "We're losing our white culture" LOVE to hear.

    #2 for me because none of the Repubs are worth the risk of one getting into the WH. #2 for you....so you can KEEP COMPLAINING for another 4-8 years and bemoaning the "dying of America" and wrap yourself in your Doom Bunker (or Doom ARCHIE Bunker) paranoia and anger.

    I merely say Rubio is the toughest Repub for Hillary....not that he could absolutely beat her. Just that of the ones left who are viable (not Kasich for example)....Marco stands "the best chance against her."

    That's not saying much though. Trump has effectively RUINED the Republican Party's brand with Latinos, women, Muslims, and a lot of mainstream Independents.
