Can we worry about a Trump victory now?

Be afraid, be very afraid. It would seem it is either Trump or Hilary. From what I have heard is that the people that have problems with Sanders have a problem with his plan to allow ex felons to vote. Funny enough, that is just about the one idea I can get behind. How can we expect laws to change (drugs mainly marijuana) if we lock everyone up, call them felons, and take away their voice?

I've been worried all along. Trump stinks, but so does Clinton. The last time both candidates were this bad was Bush vs. Dukakis (and even they weren't this bad). I voted Libertarian that year, even though I don't agree with the Libertarians on anything. I will probably vote for Clinton this year (because the President will appoint at least one Supreme Court justice, and probably more than one, and I'd much rather have Clinton do that than Trump), but I will not do so happily. I still like Sanders better than either Trump or Clinton, but that would be throwing my vote away.

Am i worried about the grayed umpa lumpa getting into office nope. Because trumps a populist mouth piece i think like the Wedge document his ideas are a collection planned out ideas that will never manifest .And in 4 years the fanatic hordes that flocked to him will start sharpening there pitch fork but nothing will come of it .And he'll quit or lose to a dessert island somewhere drinking mia tias laughing to himself at the rubes who gave him 4 years of letting him live out his god fantasies .

Cool interactive graph at the end of article that plays what-if probablities for the White House.

Clinton has 945 ways to win
92% of paths

7 ties
0.68% of paths

Trump has 72 ways to win
7.0% of paths

538 upgraded Trump's chances to 38% today.

Basically, Trump just has to win the Romney states, plus Florida, Ohio, and either Pennsylvania or Virginia.

He's being outspent 15 to 1 and he's running right there with her.

Don't make the mistake of thinking this is going to be a slam dunk.

Maybe Hillary can plagerize Melania. That last line could be her entire concession speech.

Meh. If trump wins I'll just make money selling t-shirts with Obama's face and the caption: "Miss me yet? How's that makey greaty thing working out?"

I would rather Trump win over Hilary, but either one is WAY better than Bush or Obama. JMHO.

Not making that mistake, I’m actually horrified that he has ANY chance at all.
