What should Trump do now? Should he continue to go campaign in Nebraska, West Virginia, Oregon, Washington, California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, and South Dakota as if he was still trying to win the primariy? Or should he now focus on swing states spending time there that he otherwise would have in red states trying to get primary votes?

What about California? He has basically no chance of winning Cali in the general so should he even go there? If he goes campaigning there we all know it is going to cause libtard riots. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

On one hand he could avoid stirring up violent protests, but on the other hand it may be beneficial for him to go there and stir up all the riots he can to show the rest of america who the true enemy really is, not to mention get some of those bastards arrested and hopefully deported..
I think the riots are good for Trump's image nationwide as it shows everyone just how correct he actually is..

Then again maybe he should skip or spend very little time in solid blue states in the rest of the primary season and start coming back to states like Michigan and Florida where he can give the Dems an upset..

What do you think?

If you were Trump, how would you play it from here?

I have a bunch of Trump stickers/buttons/signs/shirts/hats I would like to sell and am currently in CA, so I would hope he plans on coming out here. Don't plan on hitting the campaign trail until after July.

I'd continue to campaign. I'd want to make sure of my support for both the convention and the coming election. Especially in major States like California, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington.

All "violent protests" do is encourage more members of the "silent majority" into Trump's camp. Especially since this kind of activity demonstrates who the real foes of freedom are.

"libtard".
Right out of the blocks. What a piece of work.
And wanting to be heard by the adults too, no less.

Are you surprised?
Trump's greatest qualities for me is how he is so non-PC and blasts libtards. He has their heads absolutely exploding, playing right into the palm of his hands with their demonstrations.

For me it is the absolutely best thing about him, saying all the things that everyone else is afraid to say for fear of the libtards disapproval.

Trump is already an absolute hero for setting PC newspeak back to the stone age..

Tell you one thing, laddybuck- don't matter who wins the election, you for one will be getting exactly the government you deserve.
Trump's a cartoon clown. Anyone with a triple-digit IQ who votes for him is just being contrary.
Another thing, your hero is probably more liberal than Clinton. I wouldn't be surprised to see conservatives protesting his rallies.

1. Guarantee I have triple digit IQ + a non-zero tens place. My strength is spacial awareness and my weakness has always been language skills. Tests fluctuate about 15 points.
I may not be able to express myself as well as others but I am far from stupid.

2. Don't care, even tough I disagree. I just got done explaining his greatest traits IMO. Who else compares on that merit? No one..

His greatest trait is his bucket-mouth. We may finally agree on something.

I like to think of it more as coming from a position of "**** you" not caring what anyone that may disapprove thinks..

Now would you mind staying on topic? This has nothing to do with campaigning strategies..

I'm thinking that Trump may not want to hit hillary too hard until Sanders is completely out of the picture and it is guaranteed that he will be against hillary.

I really wouldn't want Trump to blast hillary so hard that Sanders ends up winning because I think Trump will have a much easier time destroying hillary than sanders. She is a much easier target, he has so much ammunition on her.

Sanders, "he is a socialist" is great ammunition for those who understand how dangerous and truly unamerican socialism is but I don't think that millennials understand these risks at all. People just don't understand how potentially/likely disastrous it is.

If he wants the good will of the remaining states, he won't snub them. He won't need to spend any money on ads or to convince people to reject the other guy(s) and vote for him, but everybody deserves their day in the sun too. For sure any protesters won't be GOP supporters and they do seem to boost Trump's poll numbers. He has some bridge building to do, fences to mend, etc. and that is a good way to do it as any appearances in those states will receive media coverage.

And I'm not at all sure he can't carry California. I know a number of folks in California and they are all going to vote for him. Even one staunch liberal/progressive type who is fed up with a government that doesn't work for anybody but government any more. And that person can't stand Hillary.

I don't think that that is the case. I actually like some things about Bernie but some of his platform is so extreme of a change virtually anyone could beat him in the general election. I don't see any way he could get elected in the general election. She might be an easier target for negative ads but I think Bernie would be easier to for someone in the GOP.. anyone really. But if I had to have a choice between him and Hillary, I would take Bernie as at least he is transparent.

No way in hell he wins in CA. Brown is going to have his sentencing reform and prop 30 extension measures on the ballot in November, which are sure to bring the dems out in full force.

Honestly, the map doesn't look very encouraging for Trump. It's not too late to start building an actual ground game. He'll need an extremely strong GOTV effort if he wants to win Ohio, Florida and other swing states. Just don't hire silver bullet, **** those guys. He needs to try to fix his Mormon problem, that is a major problem.

I like Bernie too as a person, he is a likable feller.. But as you say his socialist policies are extreme..

Bernie would be easier for someone from the GOP to defeat in a debate over policies for sure, butt..
I think that many voters in America are somewhat oblivious to policies, or don't understand them wholly, and are going to vote a lot based on who they "like", and that is Bernie over hillary.

Maybe they like the policy of getting/giving free stuff, but they don't understand what it is going to take to get that free stuff in the first place in order to give it later.
