    There seems to be a misconception that disgruntled trump voters are good for the Democrats because they'll flip.

    In reality, the theory is that they're good for the Democrats because they'll stay home on Election Day.

    There's recent history to support this notion.

      Yes he's right about that.

      My point was about something a little broader than the tired old 'my gang is better than your gang' thing, though. I could easily be misjudging SteinbergerHack, and if I am then I apologize for that, but to me it sounded like he was just expressing a wish that a Republican - any Republican at all - would be the next president. There are, I'm sure, people who wish that a Democrat - any Democrat - would be the next president. Personally I don't believe that putting party affiliation over every other consideration is a good thing for your country. What if a candidate from 'the other party' was just plain better? What if the candidate from your own party was just awful (say for example a bat-poo crazy pot-bellied orange racist with the personal charm of a verruca and the integrity of a rattlesnake)?

        That's not what I said, and I frankly cannot conceive of how you would get that idea from anything I've ever posted on this board. I have been about as anti-Trump as someone could be, while being hopeful that my fears about him are not well-founded. I also rip Republicans on their social policies as much as I rip Democrats on their economic policies.

          My apologies, in that case. I must have misread your post.
