57/41 is NOT the TX party breakdown; that’s what the results were in 2012 in Romney vs Obama. Independents do NOT represent less than 2% of the voting population. The breakdown is more likely to be around 45 R, 35 D, 20 I. You were counting on nobody breaking down your methodology.

The problem is, the anecdotal/observational evidence – rally attendance, merchandise, lawn signs, etc. – isn’t being backed up by the Trump by a Field program. At the end of the day, elections come down to turnout and the ability to turnout your vote. Trump isn’t doing that – he’s not paying people to organize volunteers, the campaign isn’t doing organized door-to-door canvassing, the campaign isn’t tracking hundreds and thousands of volunteer phone calls, and the campaign isn’t identifying Trump supporters and making sure they actually turn out and vote. The campaign with the best Field and turnout program wins. And Trump has been adamant that he doesn’t believe in it, that publicity and rallies will equal votes without the additional voter contact. Unorganized, grassroots-based canvasses/phone banks without data collection and analysis is useless and wasteful. Elections are won with votes, not cheers at a rally. And votes are won door to door.

“I am not in the habit of supporting people who attack my wife and attack my father. And that pledge was not a blanket commitment that if you slander and attack Heidi I’m going to nonetheless go like a servile puppy dog”
When did he pick up the habit?

“A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honoring that commitment.” You think that’s not an endorsement?

He’s the definition of the problem with America. He donates to Democrats and Republicans alike, not because he agrees with them, but to influence them. He’s a pathological liar – he said at the Reagan Library debate he didn’t host a fundraiser for Jeb Bush in Florida to influence a potential gaming expansion, yet testified under oath years earlier that his political schmoozing in Florida was specifically aimed at expanding legalized gambling. Either he lied to Republican voters or he lied under oath. Which is better to you? And when you concede elections are binary, you’re only playing their game.

Mets lost their chance when they drafted Nimmo over Fernandez. Don’t have the farm system that Miami would demand, certainly not the premium they’d want for trading intra-division.
Let’s talk fences, not wells.
Israel and I have a plan….if no one else will, well.
OK, huddle up!
I need a go fund me thingy, and a few billion bucks. Do you guys have any spare cash?
Seriously, no one else will. I volunteer a year of my own time right now, and may need a few good men too.

Doesn’t matter if the family’s loss was being exploited – they were. What matters is that Donald Trump can and will go off message at the slightest provocation, bogging down his campaign down and hurting down-ballot conservatives. Instead of talking about growing radical Islamic violence abroad, instead of talking about a sluggish economy with only more mediocrity on the horizon, and instead of talking about how limited government inspires economic ingenuity – were talking about how Donald Trump attacked the parents of a fallen soldier. Makes one wonder, does he actually want to win? Is this some sort of Machiavellian move by the Clinton’s to ruin the GOP? His actions are not those of a candidate who wants to win.
Trump's annoyed because this Muslim has big hands.
"The danger which troubled my husband was that war might be started not so much by the big men as by the little ones.
While big men know the needs for self-control and restraint—little men are sometimes moved more by fear and pride. If only in the future the big men can continue to make the little ones sit down and talk, before they start to fight."
Trump is stating what many Americans believe but are too fearful to say publicly. Many fear they would lose their jobs, fired by a political correctness minded department of Human Resources, if they spoke out. Free speech, my butt.
This is what the Dems do, use people to gain votes, they have used minorities for years, keep people dumb, unemployed, contained in one area, bingo you have a democrat voting block.

Trump’s DiMaggio-like streak of hurting himself whenever he opens his mouth continues.
... that explains why ... HILLARY HAS NOT HAD A PRESS CONFERENCE IN 236 DAYS ... CAUSE HER MOUTH WOULD BE MOVING ... AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN HER MOUTH MOVES ...

Which voters? Republicans? Or the Democrats and unaffiliated voters who pushed Trump to a plurality? Closed primaries are a good thing – if you can’t take the time to register in a party, why should you have a say in the nomination of that party’s candidates? Should granola munchin’ hippies that are too liberal to consider themselves Democrats be allowed to sabotage GOP primaries?

Obama’s faults aside, what you’re suggesting is treason.

Proof that Trump is trying to lose: name a candidate, for any office, that would publicize and brag about being endorsed by convicted rapists, Mike Tyson, and a convicted murderer, Don King? And realistically, when convicted of serious crimes like rape and manslaughter – reduced from 2nd degree for stomping a man to death, shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

If anyone thinks Trump believes anything he says, you deserve President Clinton Part Deux. He was pro-choice before he wasn’t; pro-gun control before he wasn’t; pro-Libya intervention before he wasn’t; pro-Iraq War before he was against it; pro-Hillary before he was against her; pro-Obama stimulus before he was against it; pro-Planned Parenthood before he was…no, he still defends pap smears and mammograms in one room while ignoring murder in the next; pro-progressive taxation before he was…no, still supports it and opposes a flat tax; and pro-eminent domain for private development before he was…no, he even defends it. This is also the same guy who fired active military from his businesses by counting their service obligations as “absences”; kicked veteran vendors from trying to make a living in front of his building; and compared avoiding The Clap to fighting in Vietnam. You get what you deserve.
June 5, 2016 at 1:38am
Only one of them thought/thinks avoiding The Clap is the equivalent of fighting in Vietnam. It’s also the same guy who thinks attending a high-priced private military boarding school in the NYC suburbs, including earning the meritorious “medals” for keeping a neat and clean bed/footlocker, is the same as serving in the military. Also the same guy who fired, then paid off with non-disclosure enforced payoffs, active reservists from his various businesses b/c their service to their country conflicted with service to the company. And it’s the same guy who thinks Saudi Arabia should have nuclear weapons. Yeah, nothing bad could happen.
 June 4, 2016 at 2:57pm
Please reference where I said that Trump was responsible. I’m having trouble finding it. Merely pointing out that Deferment Donald thinks avoiding The Clap was equivalent to fighting in Vietnam.

Whether you agree with it or not, when Ali dodged the draft, it was out of conscience. When Trump deferred his way out of the draft, it was out of convenience for the son of millionaire real estate developer.
And Hillary wasn’t allowed to join the Marine Corps because she was a woman…
How about we leave the Trump/Hillary Dual/Scumbag issue off this page, and just say goodbye to someone who was important to our lives 40 years ago.
WOW, Trump is responsible for Ali's death. You her really digging deep Imabus
He was not a draft dodger. First he had deferment and any college student was allowed to have one and second his classification was 1-Y, meaning he was at the bottom of the list and would only be drafted if there was a national emergency. The draft lottery came two months after Trump received his 1-Y classification. Essentially, even if Trump’s birthday, June 14, had been pulled first, he would not have been called to serve. His number was #356.
Cassius Clay took advantage of everything America had to offer, while hating America.
So his conscience wouldn't allow him to fight in Vietnam...but it would allow him to fight in the ring? Yeah, that makes sense.
hahahaha so it's ok
So, lanimilbus--theywere both chickens...

There’s a key difference Apatow fails to realize. There’s a difference between critical of Hollywood’s inability to come up with an original idea and hating a movie purely because it has female-centric cast. And I use the word “female” specifically. I’m talking about chromosomes. You know how you end the bathroom controversy? Start putting XX and XY on the doors. Even if you accept the ridiculous argument that gender and sex aren’t synonyms, that gender is a social construct, there’s nothing “Caitlyn” Jenner can do to get ride of the Y chromosome; there’s nothing “Chaz” Bono can do to add one. For the handful of true transsexuals, with genetic birth defects that make them XXY, they are the ONLY ones that can have any sort of grievance.
June 3, 2016 at 10:11am
Are we really making fun of people for having glasses? Is that how far political debate and public discourse have fallen? The mere fact that you can’t list grievances in a constructive way is an indictment on you.

He was concerned the money would go to actual veteran’s organizations, like the one supporting veteran vendors who were kicked out of in front of Trump Tower. “While disabled veterans should be given every opportunity to earn a living, is it fair to do so to the detriment of the city as a whole or its tax paying citizens and businesses?”
