Super Tuesday Predictions

Tomorrow will see Trump's position as the likely Republican candidate cemented even further. Pundits are claiming that this is the end of the Republican party as we know it. They predict that the party will be split and that a third-party candidate from the moderate center of the party will run as an independent, or as the face of the new Republicans. The two-party system has defined US politics for a long time. How exciting it will be to watch it morph into something new.

On the Democratic side, I expect Tuesday evening to bring the assertion that Clinton has secured the nomination by winning in many of the 12 states at stake. Meanwhile, the Sanders camp will insist that it's not over yet. He will receive a lot of donations from the hopeful. It's unclear how long he will stay in the race. But maybe, just maybe, if he keeps at it, he will prevail. It's unlikely, but not impossible.

Such fun!

  1. "THE DONALD" sees "THE TERMINATOR" as the next US FOREIGN SECRETARY. Personally, I'd have Arnie as my Russian Ambassador in Moscow. He'd get along just fine with Vlad and the Boys.

    1. What a thought! It's all a circus now.

  2. Can't disagree with anything you've written here; I do hope another viable party comes out of this.

    1. Cranky, I'm in mourning following Tuesday's results. I cannot understand how Trump did so well in Massachusetts unless it's because many unaffiliated who usually vote Dem, decided to vote in the Republican primary.

  3. It's fun and fascinating in a terrifying sort of way. If only the stakes weren't so high so that I could sit back and enjoy the entertainment.
    Could Trump really become President? I can't see anything but chaos resulting from that.

    1. I agree, Marty. It is fun and totally gripping, but I am beginning to have less fun as Trump moves closer to a win in November. I am afraid it really is possible. Unless of course his helicopter mysteriously crashes. Stay tuned.

  4. He may have no policies but he knows how to make a deal.

    1. He does indeed. He knows how to inspire and sway voters. What is that called? Oh, yeah a demagogue.
