By that reasoning, wouldn't the smart money be on Jeb! Bush or Kasich?

Also, I think I just found out Trump's master plan. He's going to bet big on someone else while everyone else bets on him, then he'll take a dive in the last round, along with everyone's money. I saw it on South Park, once.

Exactly, so the odds are longer, and the payout is bigger. That was your exact reasoning for betting on Trump and not Clinton.

The heat of You're not a Christian if x random concept occurs with you.

While Trump has been dropping the religious attacks on Cruz saying, I don't think he's likely a christian because he lies so much.

Apparently the Pope when asked about Trump said he doesn't think anyone that wants to build a Boarder Wall is a Christian.

No True Scotsmanning away! Though others also have done that of Trump lately because if you criticize W. suddenly now you're not a republican. Or blame his office for things they've been blamed for by plenty.

It's like they forgot the driving factor that was why McCain won the 08 primaries, he was so anti-bush he wasn't a factor to fear of keeping and continuing the Bush legacy since he was publicly anti-bush constantly in the senate and when showing up on the sunday morning tv press runs. I guess it just takes one presidency to pass for you to be a special respectable figure again. I guess after the Emperor Trumpiltine 8 reign stint people will be Thanks Obamaing in earnest.

I actually never expressed my exact reasoning, so you're putting words in my mouth there. Just FYI, Trump is beating Clinton in a one-on-one match-up in the national polls. The reason the odds don't reflect that is because people don't make their betting decisions based on facts. Case in point: The odds for Trump winning NH on predictit.org weren't 1:1 even though he was leading the polls by 20% (almost twice that of the closest contender).

Nine months ago, I assumed the 2016 general election was going to be between Jeb! Bush and Clinton.

Exactly, that's what I mean. Jeb was almost a sure thing and now there's no hope in hell for him. At least Clinton still has a shot (although a minor one. #Sanders2016).

He wont beat her where it matters, the actual voting booth.

Trump won’t ever be POTUS, he’s simply too clownish and polarizing. That he has as much support as he has is alarming and disturbing in my opinion.

I'm sorry. I was thoroughly convinced you were being facetious, so I was being facetious back. If you weren't joking, I'll stop joking with you.

Now that Jeb has dropped out I wonder who will get his supporter’s votes?
