Interesting poll. So far 53% of us think Trump will be re-elected.
If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys and apes? Can an atheist get insurance against "Acts of God"? One nice thing about egotists: they don't talk about other people.

Now THAT is an assassination threat if I've ever heard one so bureaucratically stated.
I figure it this way:
10% chance he doesn't serve 4 years
20% chance he decides not to run again
40% chance he loses in the primaries

Everything will be exactly the same, except different.

In 2020, Dems will nominate Elizabeth Warren who will rail against plutocrats in banks, Wall Street, and offshore tax havens; but for taxes on Roth IRAs over $1 million, tighter capital controls, and Obamacare Plus Free Everything. Ironically, the Russians -- who will be found to have had nothing to do with the outcome of the 2016 election -- will be inspired to seriously hack the 2020 election, thereby assuring the return of the chaotic Donald to office for another 4 years. Only in America, baby!
You heard it here first! Happy New Year!!

If Elizabeth Warren ends up as the Democratic candidate, we are in for one wild ride. She's part Bernie Sanders, part Trump, and part crazy. Despite how vocal she's been against Trump, some of her positions align with his (e.g. on trade & globalization) and she's almost as much of a loose cannon. Some things she says are real zingers, like this little gem:
She observed that "the current generation of corporate winners" would have to pay their fair share in order for "the next generation of prosperous American companies" to be ushered in along with investments in "broad-based economic growth" to be feasible.
This is going to be interesting. Two Trump-like candidates, one extreme left and beloved of the press, and one right-center and reviled by the press. About the only thing I can predict is that the polls will once again be dead wrong.

I agree Warren will be interesting, but I wonder if she shot herself in the foot with the whole Native American thing. You can be sure Trump won't ever let her live that down.

I hear her plan is to win 1/1024 of the vote and declare it proof that she really is the president.

Cort, you may be right, but I think it is possible that the whole Pocahontas story may appeal to a certain niche of her voting public- much as stories about Trump's wives and girlfriends have had an undeniable appeal to some of his base. When you are running for President, there is no substitute for name recognition, and even bad publicity is still publicity.

O0 I made a similar joke with some friends the other day, but it was the (fictional) Elizabeth Warren method of dollar cost averaging.

The lead editorial in the Wall Street Journal today noted that Elizabeth Warren identified herself as "American Indian" in her 1986 registration for the state of Texas bar.
