@ehBeth,
I think that's where the line in the article about getting hate mail comes from. She clearly still has some ardent supporters, just not among the right opinion makers.

@cicerone imposter,
If you forget these idiots are serious contenders as candidates for President of the United States, there's clowns galore! I only wish they'd put their little round red noses on.

That's what we get when the uneducated in this country has more political voice than the rest.

I think the most uneducated do not vote, and do not organize. Supposedly protecting us from uneducated voters is what the Electoral College is for.

According to some articles I've read, most of Trumps supporters are the uneducated.

@cicerone imposter,
The thing to remember at the convention is that its often the everyone's second choice that gets the nod. And Trump is no-ones second choice. I think the second choice to watch out for is Sen Rubio.

In that they can find their way to the convention!

The GOP is tripping all over itself to find a convenient way to cut tRump off at the knees at the convention.

The Republican lot of clowns aren't loving, caring, silly goofs you find at family friendly circuses but more Pennywise and Twisty the Clown.

@bobsal u1553115,
Thing is, for the GOP there is no effective way to fight him. You saw what happened to Rand Paul when he challenged Trump in the first debate-in a couple of days Rand Paul's ratings were cut in half.

The Republicans have always gotten the racist vote without having to say overtly racist things. Now that you have a self-financed Republican who is willing to say those things, how can the other Republicans oppose Trump without saying goodbye to Trump's racist base that any Republican will need to win the election?

@Blickers,
First: Rand Paul. He's a barely more civil version of Trump.

Secondly: The GOP is stuck in pander mode, but the question is: how many of these racists actually vote?

@bobsal u1553115,
I would say that the racist vote is a fair percentage of the GOP vote every Presidential election. The problem is, every four years there are fewer racists and more minorities.

The only reason the GOP is holding the fort in the statehouses and Congress is that the Democratic voters, who proportionately are younger and more nonwhite, are not used to voting and so can only be motivated every four years. However, once a person has voted several times, they tend to make it a regular thing and those once-every-four-years Democratic voters will inevitably become once-a-year voters. When that happens, the GOP's goose is cooked. At full strength, there are more Democrats than Republicans.

More minorities is a problem? How so?

Not for me or for Democrats. For Republicans, the greater the percentage of the electorate that is minority, the less chance they have to win.

I wish I could believe this, but when the election cycle begines the 1% is going to flood the airwaves with hundreds of millions of dollars of brainwashing pieces on the media. Most people believe what they hear on the radio and what they see on tv. This is one reason the republicans have done so well in many states. Repeat a lie often enough and it takes on the aura of truth.
