    Donald Trump talks 'independent' run again

    Another Trump thread, but this topic is worth it, IMO. Trump is backing off his previous vow to not run as an independent if he loses the nomination battle. IF he does, that would guarantee a Hillary victory with the split vote. Something a tinfoil hat wearing buddy has said all along. That...
