    I think he'd probably govern as a mainstream Republican, if he went too far to the right he wouldn't be able to win reelection whereas Trump's entire appeal is based on his "fuck you" attitude.

      Cruz is a lifelong wingnut. He wouldn't be capable of governing as a mainstream politician. He is also someone who believes Obama has been an extreme liberal President, so I think he would strive to overturn all his policies and then go much further as a kind of "our turn now".

        There are Trump voters who thought Rubio offered amnesty to Puerto Ricans in exchange for votes.

        ...I don't even know where to begin.

        Btw, what's the general European reaction to Slovakia's election? Extremists made some gains there.

          I actually agree with Dan, I think Cruz is a dangerous (and also highly intelligent) idealogue who intends to pervasively impose his own very stringent personal morality on the nation and would prize achieving those ends above any political capital. I think he is a more obnoxious man than Trump because I genuinely believe that Trump is not as awful as he appears, whereas Cruz is more awful than he appears. HOWEVER, I still think a Trump victory (in the presidential) election would be worse because of the precedent it sets of basically being able to 'snake oil' talk your way into office, if the American government ever becomes malign it will be through these means.

              Bernie's doing well considering the entire Democratic establishment and its DC media arm are in Hillary's corner.

              He could win those midwestern states that still have the old progressive movement around.

                I can't believe Trump has gotten this far. What a nutcase. Ugh.

                I honestly couldn't give a shit about politics but I'll give my vote to Bernie so there's that.

                  I think he will continue to take all those rust belt swing states while Hillary wins deep red states she couldn't even hope to win in the general. Bernie has taken nearly every important swing state for November so far, further demonstrating Hillary's anti-appeal among independents.

                    She's a terrible candidate. Most of the people willing to vote for her (and the fact that I say "willing to vote for" says everything) in November aren't excited about the prospect at all. Bernie's voters are as energized as they can possibly be.

                      I hate the way she is basically forcing herself on America despite being emphatically rejected in the past

                        She's the result of the party getting crushed at state and local level recently. They just don't have any candidates outside of her (and Bernie, though Bernie's not really a Democrat at all, he served in congress as an independent). It's lead to a lot of frustration among the rank and file Democrats at the lack of action from the DNC elite, with some accusing Debbie Wasserman Schultz (the DNC chair) of being in the tank for the Clintons.

                        Nim, would you back Tulsi Gabbard in 2020 if she primary'd Hillary?

                            Am I misinterpreting or did the Republican presidential front runner say in a debate 'and by the way, I have an enormous dick'.

                              No, Trump said he had a huge dick at a nationally televised debate.

                              Then backstage he walked up to a woman and said, "Look at my hands. They're beautiful hands, powerful hands."

                                Attractive veteran who enlisted with a degree and served in Iraq? Yeah duh I would back her. There is pretty much one thing I don't like about her, and it is 100% disgust for army politics and nothing to do with her:

                                "She was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal at the end of this tour."

                                Crock of shit because she wasn't an officer at the time, she was just a Specialist. I know of exactly one Specialist who deserved an MSM on a deployment, and he was an intelligence analyst for a special forces group. It wasn't anything heroic, because in that case it would be a Bronze Star.
