In order to keep the hope of a November win alive, I think Donald should in no way debate Hillary.

Trump has demonstrated again and again that he has a very limited understanding of domestic and Geo-politics. That is not me making a personal hit against him that is pure fact.

Would it hurt him by getting out of the debates?

I think at this point, there is nothing that man can do to salvage his campaign. He (and the GOP) have become nothing but a big joke.

Based on my recent threads it is clear that I'm not a fan of Mr Trump, but in full disclosure I'm not a fan of Hillary either...with that said I do think it makes good politics to have have a competitive race.

I think Mr Trump debating Secretary Clinton would be a complete and utter disaster to his election efforts.

So again, would it hurt him or be advisable for him to back out of all of the debates?

What's with the hand-wringing? He'll do fine in the debates. He's a smart guy who can hold his own.

In addition to my earlier analysis in another thread why Trump will win, there is also the Bernie factor. There are a lot of Dems still angry at Hillary and the DNC for rigging things against Bernie, who will either stay home or vote for Trump.

If he pulls the same stunts that he did in the GOP debates, he'll fall further in the polls.

I think it would hurt him to not do them, maybe more than doing them.

If Johnson is in them, both will spend the whole debate attacking Johnson, they are both deathly afraid you will vote for him and neither one of them will get 270 electoral votes.

I think that it would turn even more people against him to not do them. I'm not sure how well he will fare in a debate at this point, but I'm not sure how well she will either.

What happens if neither candidate gets to 270 electoral votes?

"Smart guy" to me is purely subjective...a smart guy to me would have optioned for a pivot in his campaign and "stuck to the script" so that he would not be so dependent on the debates.

Also, "smart" in the context of the debates, means being highly versed in national and political history, and the dynamics of current domestic and foreign policy/ methodology which I have observed Trump is highly deficient when compared to a Secretary Clinton. It does not mean Trump is "less smart" than Clinton...it just means in the debate format she will eat him for dinner.

One pivot I think Trump should do is a full production remake of this to make amends with Mexicans:

debate

all presidential candidates should debate each other, and face tough Q&A sessions with journalists, and with the public at town hall type meetings.

Whether a debate would help Trump or hurt Trump, it's the right thing to do.
Americans have a right to know what he thinks, directly from him, not from a press release composed by his staff (even if most politicians don't really answer questions during debates; they just go back to their talking points of memorized sound bytes on various topics).

I'll hold my nose and vote for Trump if he has a chance.

However, if it looks like he's sure to lose, I'll switch my expected vote from him to the Libertarian, Johnson. Either way, we'll get Hillary, but at least I can say I spent my vote in a way that helps a third party without having withheld it from a GOP candidate that could have used it to win.

I really wish that a bunch of registered and likely Democrats would consider voting for Gary Johnson rather than Crooked Hillery. If the Dems would split their vote instead of uniting behind her, I'd join a bunch of GOP'ers in splitting our vote and supporting Johnson.

But Democrats love Big Brother government, cradle-to-grave entitlement programs, socialism, and regulation of business. There's no way a small-government libertarian would ever get much support from people who regularly vote "D"

IIRC, if neither candidate gets to 270, the House of Representatives decides who wins - and it doesn't have to be either of the main candidates either.

Any of you who actually believe the "POLLS" are just not in your right mind to think they are not biased. The polls said DT had no chance of being the candidate yet here he is. I think the media, polls and general public have NO idea how many votes DT will get. I think the vast majority of people in this country are completely fed up with where we have been going with illegals mooching off of hard working citizens and the security or lack thereof that the obama and democrits in general have taken us.
I predict a sweeping win by DJT from under the radar citizens who are completely fed up with career politicians and all of the crookedness in the system.

The polls said no such thing, it was media pundits that were saying such things.

Within four days of him announcing he was running, the polls had him in the lead:

Now the polls have him getting beat badly, and now thy're biased :rolleyes:
