Donald Trump's 'unfavourables' are at a historic high, despite his chest-beating
Trump article.

Washington: It's hard to exaggerate what's going down here.
The Republicans, the party of Lincoln that controlled the White House for a total of 88 years, are on the verge of self-destruction over a man who might sneak away with the GOP nomination – but who almost certainly will never be elected president of the US.


Thoughts?

I doubt Donald Trump will be the nominee. According to fivethirtyeight, he won't get to the magic number of delegates. After the first vote comes up short, non-binding delegates will be allowed to vote for someone else. Kasich is in there just to keep Trump and Cruz from getting the magic number. The establishment will pick their own candidate at the convention (Jeb, Rubio, Paul Ryan maybe). Interestingly, Rubio sent out a letter to the states that control his delegates and asked them not to move to another candidate. He's still in even if he's not campaigning.

I'm surprised he gets so much coverage down under.

I agree, plus he may well be the death of the republican party.

That may be possible. If Ryan were to run, he would pose a threat. The others, maybe not. But the Trump supporters will be SO PO'd, I doubt they would go for an establishment candidate. Trump would go 3rd Party, and they still vote for him. Either way they lose.

I'm voting for the GOP nominee. If they pick a different candidate at the convention then that's who I'll go for. Trump supporters will be pissed at first but we'll get over it. Trump is a businessman. I doubt he'll waste his money on a 3rd party run that he knows he won't win. He'd have to spend 250 MILLION to come in 3rd? I don't think he'd do it.

Oh we are kept well up to date. US politics greatly affect us.

Ditto for the UK etc.

I think Kasich will sneak in in a brokered convention.

The GOP really has no shame. Kasich could win 100% of the delegates from here on out and he still wouldn't reach 1237 delegates. Same for Rubio. How are either of them still allowed to run and hold on to their delegates?
