Sarah Palin would be a good VP choice for Trump, but others do come very close to the top as well.  Palin has campaign experience.  Actually, Jeb Bush is very much like him in his practical approach to things.

Warren, the arch foe of Wall Street, declaring fealty to Clinton, was a shocker.  Sanders, erstwhile self-declared champion of the 99%, swearing loyalty to Clinton, was, well, a joke.  Not much is left to be shocked or to laugh about in this election, save Trump's critics who are trying their best to make others hate him, which endears him instead to their own voter base.

True, but after todays massacre in a gay nightclub in florida, its all playing in to trumps hands  ...

I thought so. However, it seems like Hillary and Obama have controlled most of medias in America after viewing two days development of this event so Trump seems to be still not able to become a president. Through the media, Trump seems as if he were the person who spoke without thinking. For god's sake, this guy is a successful businessman.

For Hillary, she blamed Trump to be a racist because of the 'abandon Muslim' idea but Muslim slammed her so quickly that she cannot response to the massacre but prey.

Finally, the election this year is like a joke in America. Hillary almost has most of political power and media power so the other party just choose someone to look different and attract citizen's attention. It doesn't seem democratic to me. It seems like Americans have to choose one from limited person, who are all not reliable.

New Poll Shows Hillary Clinton Holding Edge on Donald Trump
By ALAN RAPPEPORTJUNE 20, 2016

Broad support from women and minority voters has helped Hillary Clinton open an early lead over Donald J. Trump nationally, according to a new poll released on Monday.

A Monmouth University survey found that 47 percent of registered voters back Mrs. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, while 40 percent support Mr. Trump, the Republican Party’s standard-bearer. The survey is the latest in a succession of recent polls that show Mrs. Clinton having an advantage, as Mr. Trump’s campaign has sputtered amid internal strife and an array of provocative public comments.

“Clinton has the advantage as the general election campaign kicks off, particularly in key swing states,” said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, in a statement. “However, all signs point to 2016 turning out the most polarized electorate in memory.”

The lack of diversity that comprises Mr. Trump’s core supporters has become a problem for his general election prospects. The poll found Mrs. Clinton drawing the support of 72 percent of minority voters and 57 percent of female voters. Mr. Trump holds more modest leads among men and white voters.

Mrs. Clinton is also winning in swing states that were decided by less than seven points in 2012. In those 10 states, she is leading by an average margin of 47 percent to 39 percent.

During the primary campaign, Republican voters saw Mr. Trump as the strongest candidate to handle the economy and terrorism. But when pitted against Mrs. Clinton, he lags in both categories.

The poll comes as Mr. Trump fired his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, on Monday, and it follows a response to the Orlando massacre this month that many viewed to be erratic. Mr. Trump doubled down on his call for ban on Muslim immigration, expanding the idea to include countries with a history of carrying out terrorist acts against the United States, and has said that he wished the people in the gay nightclub that was attacked were armed with guns.
But 70 percent of Americans oppose Mr. Trump’s proposed barring of Muslims from entering the country, according to the Monmouth poll, and 52 percent would like to see a ban on assault weapons such as the one used by the terrorist in Orlando.

The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.

TRUMP EMERGES AS THE REAL CANDIDATE OF THE PEOPLE

Polls, ahem, have a margin of error, in actuality, of plus-minus 50%.  They are used mainly to condition the voters on whether to not go out to vote, whom not to vote for, and whom to vote for.  Since the former two categories combined often exceeds the last category, at least 50% of campaign ads are negatively driven, even if the press likes to talk about who is winning the poll, it is actually telling us who has been most successful in misleading the public about his or her rival.  

Sad that Sanders is really no better than Hillary, and for his betrayal of the youth who pinned their hopes of upending the exploitative system that he attacked relentlessly, as if he were their savior, this climb down from the pedestal has made a "god" of populism into a slave of his vanquisher.

Trump should not attack Hillary Clinton.  Rather, he should appeal to the Millennial base of Sanders as the true bearer of their Anti-Establishment flag, and promise them reforms that Sanders could not bring about, and now, seemingly do not really care about, as long as Clinton defeats Trump.

The Anti-Establishment Democrats are waiting for Trump to take up their cause, to lead their crusade, against the economic oppression they are experiencing in their astronomic debts just to get a college education.  Trump University may have a tainted name because of the media, but announcing the establishment of a college scholarship fund of 100 billion dollars that the Fed could easily print for the hope of the fatherland, that it gives to the banks in half as many days, should not be impossible to do, and in fact, should be done instantly.
