Oh man, have you seen all the "Looks like Christie was taken hostage" stuff?sinewav wrote:I don't know that this will have the intended effect. Christie was shunned by the GOP so it won't make a difference to the Party and it doesn't add to Trump's legitimacy. Christie is an opportunist, just like Trump.Lucifer wrote:But Trump played a trump card yesterday when he announced Chris Christie endorsed him. That was obviously timed to blunt any debate gains from Thursday, and Super Tuesday (next Tuesday) is the next round for the GOP.
My prediction: Christie is Mark Antony, Trump is Caesar. But unlike the story (where Mark Antony gets to be with Cleopatra), this will be a homicide-suicide, on stage in front of a bunch of people.
That happened today. Trump won by over 40% in only a few states. In the others, he won in the 30's, and his next competitor (Rubio or Cruz in most, Kasich in one) was low 30's or high 20's.The problem I see going into Super Tuesday is that Rubio, Kasich, and Cruz were all solid contenders in the debate. None of them are dropping out voluntarily. The next few primaries are going to be a trainwreck. All the "not-Trump" votes will get diluted and people will have the false impression that Trump is a winner and can beat Clinton or Sanders.
Gonna be a long spring.
Trump's not winning, but he is winning. At this point, we can bet that Cruz supporters will go to Trump, at least the lion's share, if Cruz drops out. But Cruz won, what, 3 states? And Rubio only one. That means Trump won 7 states.
I guess we'll see what happens. I'm not prepared to predict anything other than Christie looking obviously suicidal (I've seen that look too many times, I know what it looks like).
On the Dem side, I think Hillary's gotten the win. She hasn't sealed it, Bernie can still win, but I don't think he will. He's just not getting the minority support he needs to beat her, and she's getting more than enough minority support to beat him. In the general election, that *will* translate into electoral votes for her, but even if he started making inroads, it may not translate into electoral votes for him. Trump is sucking his votes away.
So, Trump is the ultimate fellatrix. I think we've seen enough to determine that.
