I for one am afraid he might win the general election of the United States, but honestly he might be better than Hillary Clinton.

I'm not exactly a Hillary fan, but I can't see him winning the election. Of course, my naivete had me thinking he wouldn't land the GOP either, so there's that.

I'm still voting for Bernie, even though I think a Clinton win is the only realistic outcome.

One way or another, the US will get exactly what it deserves.

I can only watch on with dread and hope that as little of the world pays for this as possible.

As I see it, with Hillary, the US might keep going as the corrupt, corporate empire for a few more years; with Trump, we might see a collapse within the next few years. To be honest, I'm way more scared of Cruz. Is that guy still running?

Nope, he dropped out yesterday, giving Carly Fiorina the dubious honor of losing twice this election season.

I didn't vote for Trump, politically I'm closer to Cruz though I have my issues with him as well. He's no longer in the race though.

I didn't want him to win but it's def going that way and looking to be Trump vs Hillary.

I will say I'd rather have him than Hillary or Bernie.

I'm just scared about some of the stuff he comes out with, I just open the papers some mornings and can't believe what I'm reading! He's certainly going to be a breath of fresh air but god knows what his next move is. I'd hate to play him at chess put it that way, he'd probably shout "home run!" or something...

I would have completely agreed five to eight years ago. But now, there are, honestly, just so many people weary of being called racists, sexists, and even sub-human because they are white, men, and/or straight or because they do not agree with the - frankly out-of-control, enormous - totalitarian wing of the social justice movement in self-proclaimed "academic" circles in the United States and the United Kingdom. They may well have had enough of it to actually vote for once. Then again, they might not. Those are - as always - the grounds upon which this thing is fought; who can really mobilise their voters. What policies one really supports are almost irrelevant.

I found it interesting, however, that "traditional media" were completely unable to "handle" the situation. John Oliver's attempt to get people to call him a name by making fun of the German name of one of Trump's great-grandfathers (or something similar) was particularly pathetic, if I may say so.

But will Donald Trump be different from Clinton in terms of the economy? No. Not even a little bit. Sorry.

To give another perspective to this: As a German, I am in this odd position of seeing all this, but also seeing the state of Germany, in which the people's opinion on migrants, speaking very superficially, shifted within a short period of time. The reason is the same. Had you said anything against letting the migrants in four or five years ago, you would have been labelled a nazi instantly. You're still every now and then, but since both the social security system and the education system are slowly crumbling away now (and I get to see that unfold live and in color at my university), the sane people who would have kept their mouths shut a couple of years ago are actually voting for the anti-migrant party now. And all the people who love to shout "Nazi!" at other people are suddenly surprised the people they called nazis are voting for anything right of the very centre. Beautiful.

Sorry, wasn't trying to turn this into half a Pub thread... did I overdo it? :confused:

Rather Trump than the Cruzifier. I mean, Trump is still a crap-wig, but he's not a religious extremist, at least.

His plans of weakening China economically and strengthening ties with america's  asian allies makes him appealing to the rest of us who are now being bullied by China.

Frankly, we're getting tired of the lip service by the Dems.
