Yeah, a lot of people underestimated the stupidity of the American Voter, and so we have Trump. But that's a lesson for next time.
Thanks from Camelot

I think it's more of a case of underestimating the unpopularity of Hillary Clinton.

But I keep coming back to the question of why Trump was able to get the GOP nod.

by the GOP nod you mean the voters right? Because the Republican Party in general was obviously not backing Trump.

The voters voted him in because of his stated policies. Trump as President has methodically gone about affecting those policies. Take today for instance. The travel ban of people from the designated terrorist danger countries, has taken affect. He ran on this and has enacted it. That along with bill passed today in Congress about sanctuary cities and Kate Steinly's law. These are trumps campaign issues.
Thanks from Sabcat

The GOP was just as amazed as everyone else in this country, but oh how easily Trump bulldozed them. Let's just face the facts. The GOP are cowards--cowards who were afraid (individually) to stick their necks out. They are, by nature, a collective, and most of them didn't like the other candidates any better than Trump. Cruz?? No way--an extremist who posed as the Alpha Dog. Rubio?? Baby-faced milk toast? Jeb? The Bush dynasty?

So the Right used the ol' spray and pray method--let Hillary take The Don out. Surely the Dems would come up with something--and oh how they tried...but no matter what Trump said or did, Hillary and friends couldn't pull it off.
The nomination and election were just one surprise right after another.

One of the mistakes we commoners--those NOT in the D.C. circles--keep on making is this. We are under the misconception that these politicians are enemies. Nope. These people are friends. I don't mean the GOP are friends with other GOP members. What I mean is the Dems are friends with the GOP and vice versa. These people party together. They have worked together for years. They may disagree on politics but they are made from the same cloth.
I wouldn't be a bit surprised if McConnell called Clinton and said 'let's make a deal.' Too bad for everyone it didn't work out.
Thanks from imaginethat and Camelot

Again a confused liberal. It is and was Trumps policies. the policies that are being enacted. His enacting these policies are why he will be reelected. Will your side figure this out? Or will you be convinced it is how the words of the message are crafted and not the actual point of the message?

Of any Clintons for that matter. And yes, Hillary is an old hag that should just disappear. She had her time, just like her lying husband. Praise the lord there gone.
