I wasn’t a Trail Mix member back in 2008 & from what I’ve read of the experience, sorta glad I wasn’t. I am a member now, proudly, & enjoy all the people who comment. I don’t take any negative comments personally. Heck, I’m happy when anyone replies because I know they took the time to read what I wrote. I respect that. Thank You.
What saddens me is when people leave or threaten to leave because of something written about a Candidate. Don’t leave. Now is the time to offer up the best defense for your Candidate. Do your best to convince me to support & vote for the person you feel so passionately about. Take Me To Your Leader. You have the power of persuasion on your side. Every person who comments on this site is intelligent, decent & has integrity. This is why I joined. This is why I stay.
Here is your Tuesday vote watch thread. Michigan, Mississippi top the list. At issue: Will Cruz trump Trump? Is Bernie burnt? Hillary has well earned the $250,000+ she is apparently paying herself from her campaign funds (good luck figuring out the prevarications on this latest mess).
More vote counting today. Michigan is the big one, testing whether Mitt Romney made a difference against Trump in his so called home state. Trump is way ahead in Michigan and Mississippi, also voting today. Handicappers are saying that anything less than double-digit leads will be a sign Trump is losing momentum.
For those who view the coming presidential choices as Hobson’s headache, count out Michael Bloomberg as an option for an alternative. He is out.
In Sunday night’s debate Bernie Sanders pushed hard on trade and Wall Street issues where Hillary Clinton is certainly vulnerable, but landed no hits that she couldn’t diffuse by changing the subject, counter punching and occasionally with outright prevarication. Flustered and flummoxed, Sanders basically threw in the towel. One wonders if Trump is her debate foe in the Fall whether he will rise to the occasion.
