  • Nightmare scenario for Democrats

    me | 2/10/16 | me
    Hillary has really screwed herself in this election, especially with young and women voters. Bernie has all the momentum now, and will likely continue to. That being said, Hillary will garner some support and supposedly she has tons of super-delegates locked away. What if, at the Democratic National Convention, Sanders has been able to build an overwhelming coalition of all of the traditional liberal special interest groups, but Hillary...with her super-delegates... is able to snatch away the nomination? Will there be an all out civil war on the left, or would they accept it and coalesce behind Her Thighness? Thoughts?

    I'm seeing a lot of questions about how Rubio got 23% of the vote in Iowa. The answer is surprisingly simple, although it is likely to inflame Trump supporters. Trump has extremely high unfavorable ratings - possibly the highest of any presidential candidate since the metric began being measured. There are countless conservatives who simply *will not vote for him under any circumstances*. (Disclaimer: I am in this camp.) Meanwhile, Trump supporters have been doing their best to discredit Cruz. Along with the establishment - who hates Cruz - it's a veritable piling-on. What the Trump supporters don't realize is...
