    Spoiled brat, The Donald, claims he's being mistreated at the hands of the Republican so he picks up his toys and storms out of the party. ButT then he mounts a campaign as an independent and this time much more successfully than John Anderson or Ross Perot.

    Come election day he pulls enough votes from democrats and republicans that no one gets to 270.

    I doubt Trump would draw many Democratic voters. Rather, he'd grab the hard-core Republican conservative/Teabagger base and split the Republican vote, dooming the Republican Party candidate. The Democratic candidate would still get the Democrats and many Moderates, making 270 possible.

    Then Trump picks Bernie Sanders as his VP candidate.

    The guy is nothing but noisy loose change in a baggy political pocket. It jingles when running but when the body quiets down, it has the substance of a silent folded bill. You wouldn't even know it's there unless you had to pay for a hooker or something with cash.

    You've hit on three things.

    #1. The people supporting Trump.
    Contrary to what the 20 degree left leaning media would like people to believe, Trump is appealing to more to Independent voters (42% of the population) who are fed up with both Democrats (31%) and Republicans (26%). It's the independents to whom Trump's break with politics as usual is pure hardcore porn. In spite of what some half witted neurotic commenters say, Trump is not getting support from Tea Parties or the religious right. He hasn't pandered to them with anything he's said. If he does he'll be whittling off the Independents who've been showing up in numbers no candidate is drawing just to see and him.

    It's probably not a coincidence that as Trump's percentages in polls increase both Hillary and Bernie have seen decreases as well as all the Republican candidates.
    Hillary April 46% ...... July 39%... It appears the Cucking Funt is headed into the mud. No new numbers are out on Sanders. No surprise there. The 20 degree tilt of the media wouldn't want to cause mass suicides on the sheeple farm.

    #2. The talk about Trump running as an Independent if he doesn't get the Republican nomination Trump is no dummy; he's perhaps the best hardball bargainer on earth. His threats of running as an independent is a 40 ton bargaining chip.... not much different than an employee going to his boss to say he's been offered a higher paying job from a competing company. Every damned time that happens to me with a winning employee I price him out of his job description to be sure I don't have to deal with it again anytime soon.

    If Republicans they don't follow that principle they'll be to blame for everything that happens afterwards... which leads us to........

    #3. What happens if no one gets 270 in the electoral college. Then the current House of Representatives votes, negotiates and revotes until they can proclaim a winner. The way the House is stacked now there's no way a Democrat or socialist running as a Democrat could win. If they declare whichever career Republican the winner over Trump it could easily lead to the start of a strong 3rd party that could knock the crap out of future elections and the old parties which is way overdue.

    Can't believe he's the GOP frontrunner.

    It's a sign of the times that, when he announced he was running, he wasn't immediately laughed out of the room...

    Scare tactic. He's negotiating... He does know he will split the vote which would only help whoever is the dem candidate.

    He is saying out loud what many people think. This is new and people are tired of politicians who can give a good speech but do nothing else.

    "Scare tactic. He's negotiating"

    He's got enough ego that he'd do it. His ego frequently clouds good sense.

    “Republicans say he’s trashing the brand. But he is the brand, to a degree, a byproduct of all the toxic elements they’ve been throwing into their brew.” - Timothy Egan, in today’s NYT

    I think Trump might run out of Steam coming nominations day down the road, more people might get fed up with his **Antics lol or not. I don't think he will win either way as a Republican nominee or an Independent. Honestly, I'm still voting Democrats but I do believe and I'm fond of a couple of Republican presidents. Lol, guess I'm not completely leftist-liberal, more like a Moderate Democrat. But anyway, yeah, I'm Predicting Hilary will win the presidency next year by a close margin like 53-54% of the total votes.

    The election is still 15 months away and Trump is merely the warm-up act. Everyone is entitled to have a bit of fun before the serious (even mundane) business of choosing a credible candidate begins in earnest.

    Some are laughing more than others while Trump trolls the GOP.

    The fact that you don't know the difference doesn't surprise me.

    Self Confidence
    Trust in your own abilities & knowledge
    Belief in your own abilities & knowledge
    Acknowledging, accepting and not exceeding the limits of your own abilities & knowledge.
    and always seeking ways to improve your own abilities & knowledge
