Washington DC and The Holy Land>Electoral Map Is a Reality Check to Trump’s Bid
Lex Luthor 05:16 PM 04-02-2016
Trump trails Hillary in virtually every state. If he is the Republican nominee, it will be an electoral college defeat of historic proportions.

Originally Posted by :
Donald J. Trump’s presidential candidacy has stunned the Republican Party. But if he survives a late revolt by his rivals and other leaders to become the party’s standard-bearer in the general election, the electoral map now coming into view is positively forbidding.

In recent head-to-head polls with one Democrat whom Mr. Trump may face in the fall, Hillary Clinton, he trails in every key state, including Florida and Ohio, despite her soaring unpopularity ratings with swing voters.

In Democratic-leaning states across the Rust Belt, which Mr. Trump has vowed to return to the Republican column for the first time in nearly 30 years, his deficit is even worse: Mrs. Clinton leads him by double digits in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Mr. Trump is so negatively viewed, polls suggest, that he could turn otherwise safe Republican states, usually political afterthoughts because of their strong conservative tilt, into tight contests. In Utah, his deep unpopularity with Mormon voters suggests that a state that has gone Republican every election for a half-century could wind up in play. Republicans there pointed to a much-discussed Deseret News poll last month, showing Mrs. Clinton with a narrow lead over Mr. Trump, to argue that the state would be difficult for him.

Horse-race polls this early are poor predictors of election results, and candidates have turned around public opinion before. And the country’s politics have become so sharply polarized that no major-party contender is likely to come near the 49-state defeats suffered by Democrats in 1972 and 1984.

But without an extraordinary reversal — or the total collapse of whoever becomes his general-election opponent — Mr. Trump could be hard-pressed to win more than 200 electoral votes.

Mr. Trump has become unacceptable, perhaps irreversibly so, to broad swaths of Americans, including large majorities of women, nonwhites, Hispanics, voters under 30 and those with college degrees — the voters who powered President Obama’s two victories and represent the country’s demographic future. All view him unfavorably by a 2-to-1 margin, according to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll.

In some states, Mr. Trump has surprised establishment-aligned Republicans with his breadth of support beyond the less-educated men who form his base. Even so, his support in the nominating process, in which some 30 million people may ultimately vote, would be swamped in a general election, when turnout is likely to be four times that.

“We’re talking about somebody who has the passionate devotion of a minority and alternately scares, appalls, angers — or all of the above — a majority of the country,” said Henry Olsen, a conservative analyst. “This isn’t anything but a historic election defeat just waiting to happen.”

(It's a fairly long article, so I put the rest in spoiler tags.)

It was in a civil war, one that we decided to take a side on thanks to Hillary cheerleading intervention. Guess what? It is a total cluster now. Worse off than it was under Qaddafi.

This of course doesn't mention that Qaddafi was cooperative with the West and gave up Libya's WMD program. Cooperate and we still may intervene in your civil war on the opposite side. The message that sends to the rest of the world is not a good one.

Cruz would have a better chance than Trump, only because almost anyone would have a better chance than Trump, but Cruz would likely be beaten pretty easily by Hillary.

Rubio, Kasich, even Jeb! all had a much better chance of winning the election against a fairly weak democrat, but the GOP primary voters went full retard this year, and so they likely threw away both the white house and the supreme court.

Yes to everything, plus the Democrats could very well take the Senate, with an outside chance at the House. And with all of that, the people who complain about runaway Democratic power now will go absolutely bonkers once they are living in a time of true, unopposed, three-branches progressivism. The last time we had that was ... well, 1964, after Johnson drubbed Goldwater.

This is what 50 years of immigration has done to the electorate. Thank your local GOP business wing donor for helping the Democrats build a permanent majority

Without 50 years of immigration, he'd be leading Hillary.

I honestly don't know. Maybe we should have 13 pointless investigations to find out.

So, who knew what and when after it was found out that the sitting administration misled the public as to what actually got a US Ambassador killed is a pointless investigation?

I am sure you like your government lying to you. I don't.

Terrorist nut jobs killed the ambassador. You really want an investigation into what pissed off the terrorists?
