A chat with an actual Trump supporter
We are finally beginning to see a detailed strategy to stop Trump: from the Republicans.
Bernie Sanders is in to win it. Exactly how, we’re not sure.
Turns out Obama is popular. Is that because of Merrick Garland? Will it stop because of Cuba?

Yes, at one point Bernie Sanders won 7 out of 8 straight contests, plus some impressive victories in Michigan and Wisconsin, and he’s poised to win a few more in May. Yet that is only a partial snapshot of what has happened in his contest with Hillary Cintin this primary season. To date, Clinton has won 27 contests (including American Samoa and the Northern Mariana Islands) and Sanders has won 20 (including Democrats Abroad).
But let’s narrow things down what really counts in a presidential election: swing states. There are 12 purple states in 2016. Hillary has won primaries or caucuses in 8 of them (OH, FL, VA, NC, MO, NV, IA, AZ) and Bernie has 4 (WI, NH, CO, MI).
Is violence at political events the new normal?
Does the violence issue help or hurt the Sanders campaign?
How much of the minority vote does Sanders actually need? Can he find it in the mid-west?
Is the Clinton Honduras scandal a thing? Like, really?
Why Ivanka Trump may be the most important person in American politics today

In the 1979 movie Americathon, a fictional U.S. president decides to hold a telethon to pay down the national debt. That was a satiric look into the “future” of 1998. But just decades later, what seemed like satire then now seems all-too-real. America has become a telethon.
It’s everywhere. On my newsfeed. In late-night comedy shows. At the dinner table and dentist office. Even coming from my kids. The world is now a 24/7 presidential election. They might as well call it an Elect-A-Thon.
Ever since the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation decided to end it’s annual 21-hour charity telethon, America has been in search of it’s next “thon” fix. Sure, there’s still the Boston Marathon, the Penn State “THON” charity dance-a-thon, the St. Jude Trike-A-thon (a real thing), and the “Surf Dog” Dog Surf-A-Thon (I kid you not!).
Here he comes to save the day! Mighty Mitt is on the way!
Clinton vs Sanders in a gun fight.
Four Republican paths to the nomination. No, really.
Maybe the worst set of political predictions ever. No, really!
Today, instead of arguing the general election in words, let’s argue it in pictures. (And save me a thousand words.)
For every argument that Donald Trump can beat Hillary Clinton by turning out new, first-time white voters, there’s a picture that says, “No, he can’t.”
