Anyone following the primaries in the US? I must admit that I'm finding them fascinating!

Obviously I'm willing Bernie Sanders to win, and I think there's still hope for him yet: Bernie Sanders wins global primary of Democrats living abroad (http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/mar/21/bernie-sanders-wins-global-primary-democrats-abroad) :D

As for the Republicans, seriously it is a case of "None of the Above". Even the least bad option, John Kasich, is still a pretty appalling option from my point of view...

I can only see this going to the 'Contested Convention' in June, as I think things are finally catching up to Trump and slowing his momentum. He looks like he's going to be wiped out in Utah, for example...

So, tonight we've got Arizona, Idaho and somewhere else in the west voting - oh yeah, Utah! Bernie had better do very very well indeed and win all three by decent margins!

Looking at the full field of candidates on both sides... are these really the best leaders we could find in a pool of 300 million people? We are so screwed. I say this at every election, though.

Bernie Sanders is the closest thing to a real liberal our nation has, which basically makes in a moderate conservative in Europe. Of course the World will like him more than the rest.

I'm not saying that Trump is the Antichrist. I'm just saying that a Trump presidency will very likely end up triggering WW3 and the death and destruction of billions, the Trumpageddon if you will. It's gonna be yuge!

Europe's leftist bent is coming to an end rather quickly. In 10-20 years Orban, Petry, Wilders etc will be seen as the moderates.

It's funny that Trump is creating such a hysteria. Anathema doesn't work, but it's so cozy as it gives that great feeling of moral superiority without effort.

So Bernie lost Arizona, the jewel in Tuesday's crown, by a large margin... :(

Still, he blasted Clinton by huge margins in Utah and Idaho and pegged her delegate lead back ever so slightly.

He has to really smash her in Washington state, or it really is all over...

What worries me is that Clinton is so disliked in the US that it's conceivable that could lose out to whichever crazy lunatic wins the republican race.

Yes, in the UK we have the Welsh Assembly elections that are at least in part proportional. UKIP stand to win a large proportion of AMs (MPs) and Welsh Labour are almost certain to lose their grip on the Welsh Government. :(

This is a party of English right-wing racists who are parachuting in English candidates for list seats that don't even live in Wales! :drekkus:

This is the most amusing US election since I moved here in 2000.

Goddammit. We likely aren't going to even have a contested convention. Trump is going to be well over the requirements after the last set of primaries. :(

I so wanted a contested convention just for the potential chaos. Given that Hillary might be liked even less than Trump, it basically means fucking Trump is going to win the fucking election in a landslide. I mean he's going to get all of the fucking moron states the Republicans always wins, and he's likely going to win his normally Democratic home state of New York, and he's going to win the biggest fuck-up of a swing state of all, Florida. This basically gives him the election even if Hillary sweeps all of the other swing states.

The primary system is strange. It's essentially what happened with Corbyn here, massive popular vote for leader ends up with a leader that a very small group of people really like, but has no chance of a mainstream acceptance.

The rest of the Republican Party is in panic mode as they know he will be a disaster come Nov but they are having a hard time objecting without pissing off the party's base voters who voted for him.

The rest of the Republican Party is in panic mode as they know he will be a disaster come Nov but they are having a hard time objecting without pissing off the party's base voters who voted for him.

Here's the thing: Just by being himself and running as a Republican, he has already locked in close to half of our states.

For starters, He'll have almost the entire Confederacy:
Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee. We'll throw Kentucky, Oklahoma, and Missouri here as well. North Carolina is a possible exception.

Then he'll have Texas, where Hell will freeze over before they go liberal again.

Then he'll have most of the desolate wasteland states that always vote Republican:
Alaska, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Montana, Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming. I was going to put Arizona here, but they'll have a bunch of angry Hispanics voting against him, not that this will be enough.

Also he'll very likely win Indiana and West Virginia.

This will give him enough to be very concerned about at least a couple of those same Swing States from every election, especially if he opts to get a VP with pull in those states. (Kasich for Ohio, a couple of different choices for Florida)

So it's looking more and more like Hillary is going to be busted by the Feds. First, this will basically seal the deal for Trump. Sorry, World. We really are all going to die soon. That said, how exactly does this work if the this occurs after Hillary officially gets the nomination? Does whoever she picks for VP becomes the Presidential candidate? So basically we could have someone literally no one in the US at all voted for running as the Democrat President.

IMHO Clinton has only been dinged for not following State Department rules by the IG. Which isn't too bad for Clinton loyalists. However, I have no idea what the Department of Justice/FBI will conclude and what legal recommendations they will pursue. Yes, potentially very damaging and Clinton has not been handling very well so far.

I was watching the news this morning and they were showing a bunch of illegals protesting at a Trump rally downtown yesterday.

There were a TON of protesters from Tijuana who were Mexican citizens who came there just to protest and get violent with police. Yes, it made a lot of the locals upset and we were happy to see the cops arrest them and throw their asses in jail where they belong. I also believe it is safe to say the ones who could not speak English or who spoke broken English were not from here, and without a doubt a percentage of those people are illegals. Not to mention all the jack asses waving Mexican flags and burning US flags.

We locals see that as a guest coming into your house and shitting in the living room. It doesn't endear them to us thus the hostile reaponse from locals.

Notice how the illegals have since done the same at a number of other cities here in this state? Just Google what happened in San Jose last week.

Also interesting, french presidential elections 2017, early July poll (before terror attack in Nice):

Le Pen (conservative) 28
Dupont-Aignan (centrist) 4,5
Juppé (centrist) 36
Hollande (loony left) 13,5
Mélenchon (monster raving loony left) 13,5
Various cryptocommies, greenlings: 4,5

If LR are dumb enough to nominate Sarkozy, I'm looking forward to a franco-american Trump - Le Pen summit.

Do we have any financial experts here, because I have a genuine question: When Trump inevitably wins the election, how much do you think/expect the Stock Market will crash right afterward? Let's face facts, the moment Trump's inevitable victory is announced, there will literally be a billion people all across the World that will panic mightily about the future of the free World. If there's one thing to learn about the stock market, it's that even the most minor of panics will at least briefly send the market tumbling. So what I'm asking is, can Trump's inevitable victory cause the greatest 1 day drop in the Stock Market's history?

If anyone is going to start WW3 in the Middle East, it's going to be Trump. He's the one that is actively expanding Islamophobia and threatening to ban Muslims from entering the country.

Also I apologize in advance for the subsequent massive Stock Market collapse. At least we had plenty of time to prepare for this. I've been hoarding pocket change. It won't be worth anything as currency soon, but it will still be slightly valuable for it's metallic makeup. Plus it's shiny, which will dazzle Trump supporters.

I liked Margaret Atwood a lot and read her books up until The Handmaid's Tale.

I got about half way through and thought "what a load of crap this is". Some near future US government thrown into chaos by some attack by Muslims. Far fetched! A far right dictatorship taking over afterwards and suspending the US constitution and taking away all the rights of women. A formerly good novelist spouting preposterous left wing crap I thought. I never read any of her books since.

Come on you guys. Reality TV and reality are two very different things. Do not confuse the two. Do not make me admit I am wrong because if you do I will have to go back and read every last Atwood novel since somewhere around the mid 1980s.

Pretty much. I've been saying right along that fucking piece of shit Trump is winning this. He's basically got it in the bag. He's got Ohio, North Carolina, and Florida. Basically he just needs a couple more swing states, and it's his. It would take a literal miracle for Hillary to win at this point. And guess what, the Republicans will still have total control of the Senate. Guess what again, anywhere from 1 to possibly 4 (or more!) of our Supreme Court will be picked by Republicans. Sorry, women. Abortions will be illegal. Sorry, gays. Gay marriage is going to be illegal again. Sorry, minorities. Your fight for equal rights is going to be set back 50 years. Sorry, Muslims. Hopefully the inevitable interment camps (after the inevitable massive terrorist attack as Trump's win was a huge win for terrorist recruitment with the 'Western World' appearing to openly hate Muslims) won't be Nazi-esque. Sorry, stupid fuck middle class white guys that picked him. You aren't getting your jobs back, and you probably won't have medical insurance either, because goodbye Obama Care. Sorry, Canada.

Now that I'm slightly calmer, I've realized how terrible of a campaign Hillary ran. For starters, she was so busy pandering to the millennials and some of the minorities, that she largely ignored what is still one of the largest demographics in the country: Baby Boomers. Also she concentrated so heavily in a couple swing states, that she literally let a couple of states that by all rights should have been hers slip over to Trump. I mean Wisconsin wasn't even really considered a Swing state until the very end. Then there's the matter of her continuing to attack Trump in the exact same very unsuccessful way others attacked him during the Republican Primary. I mean people already knew he was a deeply racist, sexist, asshole of the highest degree. THEY JUST DIDN'T CARE, because either they were racists assholes themselves, or they blindly believed some "anti-establishment" outsider with no real plan would magically make their lives better.
