Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For Trump to win he has to first split the Obama coalition: women, Liberals, blacks, Latinos, under 35s,  and second to attract that faction.  

Not.  Gonna.  Happen.

He doesn't need to split it.  He just needs it to stay home.  Clintstone, whose opinions are all derived by triangulation of the latest polls, may succeed in accomplishing that.

She's hugely popular with black and Latino voters.  She could conceivably have issues with women and under-35s, but I think people have grossly overstated the dislike those folks have for her while not acknowledging just how much they despise Trump.

Every poll so far suggests that, even before Hillary and Bernie make an effort at unifying the party, Trump is underperforming relative to Romney and even McCain with those folks.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
