Chris Christie AND Carly Fiorina quit presidential race after New Hampshire disasters, leaving just SIX Republican candidates | Daily Mail Online

     With six candidates left, you have to wonder if the Doctor will not be in the house much longer.  Ben Carson seems the most vulnerable along with Senator Marco Rubio.
      A DC guy I know texted me and said Donald Trump seems to have the nomination nearly locked up. Heck, I don't know but you talk to others who continue to be in shock and disbelief over a Trump candidacy.
       As for Bernie Sanders, he met Rev. Al Sharpton today and then appeared on The View, where he shot some hoop with the hosts.
       Tomorrow the fire wall will be buttressed as the Congressional Black Caucus will endorse Secretary Clinton.
       NH is history and now its all about Nevada and SC. While some impatient people want it all over now, that's not the arc of history prior to the TV era. Let it play out. Test these people. Don't declare it over because of two or three small states.
       If you want my guess.....It will either be Trump or Kasich or in the odd chance its all deadlocked, look to Speaker Ryan.
       For the Dems, I still think Mrs Clinton doesn't make it....not because of emails but because of the disconnect she showed on gender and age this week, and other things that scream 'yesterday' about her bid.
      As for Senator Sanders, I don't know but he does seem more shrewd than a lot of people gave him credit for.   I haven't counted out Biden or Warren yet.

Great comic relief Jeff. Keep it coming.

It’s probably just as well that Ms. Fiorina dropped out. I mean, look at that face, would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?

Seeing Sanders kiss and hug with Rev Al tells you all you need to know about the creep.

I haven't heard anyone say Bernie is not shrewd. He is a crafty populist like Obama. It takes uncanny shrewdness to promise free stuff and it takes even more to promise even more free stuff.

Now if you were to say his supporters are not shrewd...well, that would be the understatement of the year.

Kasich will have little support from here on. Bush and Rubio have a better chance, but it is Trump's to lose. Any DC insider that doesn't understand Trump's popularity is out of touch with the base and most likely thinks that Ryan was a popular choice for Speaker.

I totally agree with 9:12. That is very creepy. Rev Al is never up to any good except to promote racism.

Jeb Bush is as creepy on the other side. We will be in a new war somewhere if this idiot is elected. He always has such a blank look all the time (when he's not making faces at people) ... like the light's not on in the house.

I agree that Trump seems destined to win but Cruz is still strong..
I dont like Clinton but to elect a seventy five year old man who looks in his eighties and acts 90 is absurb..
Bloomburg may be a alternative choice and not so bad considering.
As in a previous comment and war machine wants Bush, and the banks want Bush but I have trouble voting based on family history. He appears to have a problem that needs attention.

My DC insider laughs at Trump supporters.

Ms. Fiorina is a potential VP pick or would be a member of a Republican President's cabinet. I believe is significant support for Senator Sander's support comes from Democrats that can't stomach Mrs. Clinton. Exist intervals showed that only 5 percent of people who voted for Sanders believed Clinton was trustworthy and honest.

If you look at large donors, Clinton tops the list. As an example, the biggest recipient from the drug companies is Clinton. She collected $336,416 in donations, over a third of the total contributions during the 2016 presidential campaign and more than double the next closed amount. In addition, David Brock is one of Clinton's biggest supporters. Brock heads Media Matters, a far-left Soros sponsored media manipulation organization.

Clinton who will be the nominee. With party hacks and other unelected delegates Clinton has a huge safety net. Already she has about 10 percent of the delegates needed to secure the nomination. In numbers that's about 10 times more than Sanders. In addition, she'll receive support from the President which makes the changes of any criminal indictment zero. What she's promised him in exchange we can only guess at - perhaps a Supreme Court seat?

Establishment endorsements are liability in the year of the outsider. Sanders struck a cord with new and disenfranchised voters by not being in the news his whole life. Democratic & Republican central headquarters need to find a way to blend into the background, voters are enraged at the parties themselves and will resort to fringe wacko candidates just to make their point.

Deadlock to the Convention, Orange Top has his hissy fit, Bloomie already in for the Indies, takes from the Dems. and away from Orange Top when he makes his last stand threat, that he will be the greatest ever, greatest greatest ever!

Not sure of how delegates play out when someone comes into the convention without running the gauntlet could be Biden on the Tards side and maybe Ryan as Jeff is playing out.

All in all if we have the bookies in on the action could be some mighty huggggggge payoffs.

Is that legal in NYS or as in Obamacare the Nancy Skirtholders have seen fit that we can't get competitive rates on anything anymore even placing bets with the bookies?

Rubio will continue to gain. Cruz will take some more too.

Even in a brokered convention Trump will be the top of the ticket and will pick his VP from those with enough delegates to give him the nomination. Most likely Cruz since he is the only one that offers assassination insurance, like Biden and Cheney.

Contested, brokered of otherwise, the gop will change their own rules to dump Trump. Rubio will get the nomination.
