Agreed. Nothing is certain in politics.Trump can absolutely win. Hillary simply has an advantage.
Depends how many people are still paying attention. If most people have checked out already and are just assuming it's Clinton vs Trump ... then no, Sanders has no effect.
The reality is that Trump is a result of extremism. Too much spending, too big a loss of the American spirit, too much cynicism, too much political correctness, too much and too rapid of change to traditional American values, too many manicured say a lot in front of the cameras but really say nothing political types.
People are sick to death of all the DC dictates.
Here's how he wins: the angry old white guys who pine for the good old days when white guys ruled America turn out in force to vote for their champion while the rest of us don't bother because of course Trump won't win because he's a racist, lying, morally corrupt bully and idiot.
(full disclosure: I'm an old white guy. Not that angry though).
Can he win? I'm afraid he might. We need to do whatever we can to see to it he doesn't. Even Hillary would be a better choice. My dog would be a better choice, and she's dead.
The truth really kicks you people in the nuts, doesn't it?
And no, I'm not a Trump supporter.
The truth? You mean that if only we build an enormous wall around our nation, search for and arrest 11 million men, women, and children and drag them across the border, interrogate all visitors about their religious beliefs and not allow in those who believe in Islam, start a series of destructive trade wars, increase defense spending while at the same time slashing taxes on everyone but especially the already rich, then that will make America "great again"?
Weird. Very, very weird.
Yes, Trump can win. As for Bernie? I am sure it would have been better for her if we trashed the democratic process and anointed her the chosen from the outset with no challenge whatsoever. But that isn't the way democracy is supposed to work.
