    We have a trump windpower thread and a uk general election thread.

    tldr, super tuesday pt 2 today.

    Bernie needs to win 2 states or more to stay semi realistic today, 3 would be huge and make him viable.

    Trumps prob gonna win 4 today, if he wins Ohio it's huge and he's probably wrapped this shit up already.

    Trump winning the Republican nominee is the best thing that could happen to the Democrats tbh.
    Anyone will look normal and sane compared to that nutjob, the politics will take second chair during this coming race i'm afraid.

    Bernie didn't do enough last night, he needs ~58% of remaining delegates to take the nom.
    He has some FBI equity though.

    Barring the GOP fucking trump at the convention, he will have a plurality going in, he isnt quite gonna have a majority though.
    He can offer Kasich the Veep spot though, in return for his delegates and a majority and a popular governor in a swing state... seems like the easy choice.

    Trump vs Clinton, as everyone said at the start.

    At the start everyone doubted Trump would make it to first primary

    For me the key question is will anti trump republicans vote for Trump as nominee or switch to Hilary, or not vote at all?

    U w0t m8.

    At the start most of the political punditry was saying trump wouldn't last the summer, let alone make the first primary, then they though he'd fall off, like early winners have done before.
    Literally 99% of the political commentary was assuming jeb bush was a lock in w/ rubio for veep.

    They were a year ago but as soon as events that actually had any bearing on anything started, Trump and Clinton have been nailed on.

    Ah so not at the start, but some arbitrary point you want to decide on? :)

    Yeah, the start of the voting process. You know, when things actually matter as opposed to talking heads opinions.

    Even then the consensus opinion was that jeb would still win. Keep moving the goal posts though.

    Sanders is the only one who seems even remotely sane. The others are utter loonies.

    People whinge in this country about "fucking Tories" and "loony Labour" but we have it easy compared to the idiots over there.

    Trump is semi threatening riots if he doesn't win.

    Zarjazz Sarcasm. Only one of the services offered.

    There is a guy at work who is always arguing about how Trump is going to win and how it'll be the end of the world and how half of America will move to Canada.

    So naturally the rest of his team have ordered these - Amazon.com: 2016 Trump For President Men's T-shirt: Clothing

    And will be wearing them next week in the office.

    They've ordered mugs too.

    I have been toying with getting a "Let's make America great" hat, but there's a real possibility of getting assaulted while wearing it.

    Yep double standards, as pointed out in the article the uk law could be enforced from Westminster but is not either because of spineless politicians who don't want to rock the boat or because thereare no votes to be gained from it

    Welcome to devolved government. NI is also the only place in the UK where gay marriage is illegal; so not only is it behind the rest of the UK its behind the Republic as well. But, that's what the people of NI want, on both sides of the sectarian divide. The people of this sceptic isle wanted local control of politics, because local control is great (apparently), but it also opens the door to the local bigots and their backwards bullshit. Fact is, if Westminster unilaterally imposed a ruling on NI, even though totally justified, there would be bricks flying on the Falls Road and the Shankhill 20 minutes later (even if most of the people throwing the bricks agreed with the ruling). Its not complacency that stops Westminster politicians getting involved, its understandable caution.

    I'll take a giant leap of snobbery here, but even as a child the violence in NI was mostly people in council houses throwing bricks at each other.

    Please don't defend Trump by using Northern Ireland as an example of hypocrisy.

    Well anyway didn't see the old human rights lawyers getting involved, just abortion and womens rights, got more important things to do like earning millions defending migrant criminals.
