Heads they win, tails we lose...
So now the rumor is the Republican bigshots want Donald Trump to voluntarily drop out of the presidential race and turn their standard bearer's title over to his VP running mate, Mike Pence.
OK, lets think this through. Mike Pence was an early Tea Party guy, the same Tea Party whose candidates Donald Trump blew away one-by-one in the primaries. The same Tea Party that his followers saw as not representing them.
And in the other corner we have Hillary Clinton, who will get the vote of (most of) Bernie Sanders followers by default. They don't really like her...they see her (correctly) as "the establishment", the same establishment they saw as not representing them.
So now the majority of Republicans may have a candidate they didn't want, and a huuuuuge number of Democrats have a candidate they really didn't want, either.
Could things possibly get any more f__cked up? Our Founding Fathers must be turning over in their graves.
