i watched the debate myself and thought trump did pretty well. of course i am not a professional political pundit, just a regular average joe voter.

It's wishful thinking from the pundit/advisor class who are terrified of Trump. 10 bucks says the next polls show Trump hasn't lost any support.

Definitely record setting. One of the debates will have ~125 million viewers.

This whole thing would be hilarious if it didn't determine the fate of the country.  My greatest hope is that Sanders wins, and the Republicans somehow maintain some kind of large majority in the House and Senate.  Then nothing will ever get done (or only truly awful bipartisan bills).

I haven't read this subforum in like a year, but it's fucking surreal that Donald Trump might be the actual nominee. Unbelievable. Do people here support him? Why has nobody stood up at a debate and called him the clown he is yet? I don't like Rubio, but at least he has any experience and can string together a sentence that doesn't include the phrases 'this guy' or 'best'.

Also Bernie Sanders is the Ron Paul of the left. The same people who covered my Facebook wall with nonsense about how Ron Paul would make weed legal and college free are doing the same thing today. Same bullshit about brokered conventions and online polls too. Shockingly it turns out when your only supporters are upper middle class white people you're not going do too well in states that don't only have upper middle class white people.

Sanders has more support from Democrats than Trump has from Republicans. Chew on that for a little while.

How did the party allow this to happen?

Trump? It's complicated, but the #1 reason is that the media has given him ten times as much attention as any other candidate. They love him because he brings in the ratings and because he'll lose in the general election.

Sanders because the Democrats have driven out all the white moderates.

I think when Trump entered, it was just a strange spectacle. Then the debates began and it was pretty clear that Trump was smarter than the competition and pretty likable for a bully. Even the tone about him on the forum has changed and people started to be less negative towards him and take it more seriously. I asked my father about Trump when he entered the race and he just went on an angry rant. Now he admires him, though I do not know who he plans to vote for.

Just to clear the air for those who like to overthink a lot.

The party isn't in control; a fact it has only recently realized.

The Republicans have driven out all their moderates as well.

Not that surprising really. Primaries always lean further to the extremes, and it's a two person field compared to the mess of the Republican field.

Sanders is just a further left Democrat, and Hillary has some obvious weaknesses as candidate. Split that up and you get more votes concentrated with Sanders than anyone in the Republican field.

That was pretty much where O'Malley positioned himself, he just got zero traction because of totally unexpected Bernie fever.

Paul wanted to turn marijuana over to the states since the Constitution is silent on federal prohibition thereof.

 

Paul never said anything about "making college free".

 

The Republican National Committee changed the convention nominating rules at the last minute to require a higher number of delegate pluralities (eight rather than five) in order to have a candidate's name certified for nomination.  The RNC also decertified legitimate delegate slates from several states (Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts).  Paul ended up with six delegate pluralities (Iowa, Minnesota, Nevada, Oregon, Alaska, Virgin Islands) and his name was not permitted to be placed into nomination, nor was he permitted to speak at the convention.
