All he's going to do is run a flashy rebellious campaign, and then give all his supporters to Hillary next year.

i honestly don't know. everyone assumed it was hillary a year ago but i think everyone underestimated just how hated she is AND i don't think anyone expected someone like bernie sanders to be drawing the kind of crowds and popular support he is.
it's going to be interesting.
We have a similar situation in the UK with Jeremy Corbyn a surprise front runner for the leadership of the Labour party. If he wins, Labour will be further to the left than they have been for over 30 years.
speaking of UK elections, why haven't you guys gotten rid of first past the post?

Thor wrote:Donald Trump is the best thing to happen in American politics since the Buchanan Brigade. Trump, all by himself, is shifting the Overton Window in the U.S. rightward like no other right wing figure has in at least the last 30 or 40 years. Who, before Trump, was seriously talking about immigration reform other than vague lipservice about maybe securing the border one day and pushing amnesty? Now that Trump has laid out serious and real immigration reform every candidate is forced to take a stand.
So it doesn't matter if Trump is trolling us or not, the effect he is having is real.
