It looks like it's official. Trump's running mate will be Governor Mike Pence, Republican of Indiana. Probably the best of a limited lot, and thus it is unlikely to hurt Trump in his run for the Presidency. On the other hand, he's probably not going to be much of a help at this time, as the latest polls show that only 22% of Republicans say it'll make them more likely to vote for Trump, and only 12% of non-Republicans say it'll make them more likely to vote for Trump.

And we will see what we will see.

...And I think the Electoral College is a good idea. It's sort of a last-ditch safeguard to frustrate the will of the people if they favor a demagogue.
 
I agree with that statement.  'Tis troubling, like spellcheck...  Lookingup

she's ahead solidly in the polls, no need to rock the boat.


Not anymore.

Looks like the "Comey Manipulation" is backfiring big time.  She's probably the most corrupt person to ever RUN for President, and even her own party is "solidly" hating her these days.

She'll hang on to a few sycophants no matter what she does...and, she can always count on at least "passive" support from the Never Trumpers.

I doubt her VP pick will help her much.

Last I saw Trump only leads in one poll and is tied in one, Clinton leads most. Trump has closed, though. Long way to go still. Both of their personlities are so powerful and dislikability so high I doubt either Veep choice will be much of a factor.

(Yes, Skull, we know Trump has more Facebook likes!)

So, my statement was fair, then, right?  She's not "solidly leading" anymore.  She's loosing in some polls (especially in the 'battleground' states of FL, OH and PA) and more importantly, loosing ground steadily.

I don't think pre-convention polls have any statistical efficacy (regarding the general election) in the history of American politics.

The polls are NOTHING more than a talking for media pundits to fuel their own egos.  Such polls mean nothing.  They certainly have zero predictive power.

Yes, I misinterpreted your meaning. "Solidly" is not quantifiable, but Trump has closed lately.
