Poll is open to anyone and everyone.
 
I would put it at 95 % likely. The only way he is not is if he does something so outrageous between now and the convention that far more people, and far more influential people flock to the stop Trump movement. It is not impossible, and the groundwork is being laid in case it is considered to be needed, but it is not particularly likely.
 
Trump will be the GOP's candidate and Clinton will hand him his backside in November.

Wait and see.




"Better days are coming." ~ But not for today's out of touch,running out of time,GOP.
 
Every election seems to be a choice between the lesser of two evils, but this year it's hit an all time historic low.

A bombastic hot-dog versus a dishonest, corrupt, pandering hag.

I predict two things;

a. Either the Republicans or the Clintons will have Trump assassinated.
He's just too big a threat to the well-oiled corruption machine in Washington DC.

and/or

b. If he isn't killed, he will most surely defeat Hillary.
Her staggering record of dishonesty, her unlike-ability factor, and the Bernie Sanders fans migrating toward Trump because they hate her so;
It all adds up to a sizable win for the hotel magnate/reality tv star/loud-mouthed would-be messiah.

Those are my predictions.
God help us all this year.
:shock:

As posted up-thread by Redress, Mr. Trump is and will be the official GOP presidential nominee - barring any gross faux pas between now and the convention.

However, 'faux pas' is Trump's middle name! :lamo

Only he can decide (through his behaviour) whether the GOP nix him!
 
this is about fear ,the boys and girls in DC are scared that trump will end their scam on the AMERICAN people,the republicans in Washington have done nothing,butt sit on their collective asses and let obama have his way.
now they have the nerve to say donald trump is not good enough to be president,that is code we are scared of this guy,he says what the thanks and gets things done,the very idea.


run don run
 
Trump is the nominee. if they boot him, he'll run as an independent, and they know this.
 
Trump is going to be the nominee and the establishment will bend over and smile and pretend to like it waiting until the day after the November election when they can try to put all the pieces of Humpty Dumpty back together again after losing a chance at the White House, losing control of the Senate, and seeing serious erosion of their party in the House as well.

For the GOP this is a lose/lose proposition as the lose big with Trump on top and will lose big if they oppose him, successfully overthrow his nomination and then watch as his voters stay home in November - or worse yet - vote for him on a third party.

There is not a positive outcome in the outlook for the Republicans.

yeah, there is, actually. given Democratic fatigue, Clinton is very unlikely to be re-elected in 2020, and presidents typically lose seats in congress during their first term. i don't find it unlikely that Republicans will control both the house, the senate, and the presidency in 2021. if Trump wins, that might actually be worse for them.
 
Trump is undoubtedly the worst candidate possible so I expect them to stick with him.
 
He won the primary process fair and reasonably honestly so there is no moral justification for stealing the nomination status from him, just no reason whatsoever.

It would also destroy the little chance the GOP has of winning this election (and the down ticket races) because if all the Trumpists decide to stay home or worse, vote for Clinton or someone else, the GOP would loose massively.

No, the worst candidates possible were the other 16 nobs who couldn't manage to take the vote, or even close, over a very long primary.
 
Since when did 5.8% become... 2%? Please, please, please tell us you're going to repeat ludin's ridiculous claim that you can average margins of error.

Did you even bother to look at the latest poll? Of course you didn't. Nor did you read for comprehension the post you quoted as responding to.

Lmao, the RCP average -- you know - the link you posted -- doesn't work by latest poll. It averages out the polls from 1 week to give a concise image of where the candidates are in respect to each other. In short, you are looking at a single data point and claiming that is the only one that matters when the poll from a previous day had Hillary winning by double. This is why you aren't taken seriously in these discussions.
 
Actually, if you look at the national polling, he's within two points of her. And that's after taking weeks of pounding non-stop in the press and the asshole republican leadership piling on as well.

RealClearPolitics - Election 2016 - General Election: Trump vs. Clinton

That would be looking at just one poll, and the one with her having the smallest lead. The average of national polling has her up by 5.8. If you add in Johnson, you get 5.3 for Clinton(RealClearPolitics - Election 2016 - General Election: Trump vs. Clinton vs. Johnson), add in Stein and you get 4.7 for Clinton(RealClearPolitics - Election 2016 - General Election: Trump vs. Clinton vs. Johnson vs. Stein). For comparison, Obama beat Romney fairly handily with under 4 % more votes.

And , exactly, what has Trump done ? thus far ....
FALSE ..Our Congress have allowed Mr Obama to de very little ..even the ACA is but one tiny step ..

You could be right .... but .... 2020 is a very long way away in terms of politics and lots and lots of things could radically change the landscape by that time in the future.
 
Will Delicate Donald be the Republican candidate for president? I really don't know. If those pesky bone spurs come back, he could, once again, be physically unfit to serve.

that is true. i am extrapolating the data that i have, but there will be more data.

And this sort of comment is why you aren't taken seriously here. I understand what the RCP averages are. But that wasn't the point, the point you're once again trying to avoid. Typical tactic with you. Instead of admitting you didn't take the time to read the posts you respond to with this crap, you dodge, change the discussion. Yes, I was clearly talking about the most recent poll. You would have known that if you had read the post you quoted as responding to.

You do this sort of thing a lot.

Please show where you're clearly talking about the 'latest poll'. After you've done that, explain why you'd cite a source which averages out polls instead of a single poll. You've been called out for this sort of dishonesty by another poster:
