Lean Trump with a chance of a Kasich write-in or Castle vote if he's on the ballot here.

I used to think you were a good poster with an interesting perspective. Shame.

Because of an election with two godawful choices? I voted three times for Obama including the 2008 primaries. This time, I wanted Kasich. I donated to him. He didn't win. As I said, I'm considering writing him in, and it's not like Hillary's going to lose my state.

I don't like Trump, but the Supreme Court is a legitimate issue this time, and it's hard to pull the trigger on a non-major candidate. I'm not voting Hillary, period.

Another thing I think people are missing is that Trump isn't saying he wants the Russians to hack and steal Hillary's emails. The emails he's referring to are gone. Trump's saying that the Russian might already have her emails from a previous attack before they were deleted and that he hopes to see them released if that is the case.

You are spinning his words into something that he didn't even say. Just stop trying to even defend this, because it is not something that can or should be defended.

How could Trump be encouraging a hack for something that he knows doesn't exist anymore? It doesn't make sense.

He stated that he wants Russia to find the emails. Enough said.

Which would only be possible if they had previously hacked her server years ago. It's a retrospective hypothetical not a call for attacks on the US.

I asked @realDonaldTrump:"Would you as president want to recognize #Crimea as Russian, lift sanctions?" - "Yes we would be looking at that"

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why not recognize Russia as having annexed Crimea? Sticking our fingers in our ears doesn't change reality.

For as much as people are talking this speech up, I've seen almost no coverage of it elsewhere.

Calc isn't required until intermediate micro/macro, and even that depends on the school.

Also, a non-government official saying they hope something happens is not treason.

Um, isn't he receiving classified information at this stage as a major party nominee?

A) My recollection is that the party nominees get one four-hour briefing that's very general and signed off on by the President. I'd hardly consider that being a government official.

B) It isn't treason unless he actually directly aided a foreign power to harm the US government.

It is not treason, yet. But it is very indicative of his judgement. He will, almost certainly, commit treason if in office.

If that happens, you can gleefully gloat as he's impeached and removed from office.

If you define Russia's hacking as an act of cyberwar then this is treason

About as treasonous as Hillary taking in millions of dollars for selling Russia our uranium.

Only because they said there wasn't enough direct evidence. Politifact has become a bit of a joke, honestly. The NY Times story on the matter is much better than Trump's reductive version.

Bill can be as likable as he wants, but at the end of the day, it's Hillary on the ballot.

Trump will win the state comfortably, but I think Hillary will win more counties than the usual Latah, Blaine, and sometimes Teton.  Shoshone, Valley, Ada, and maybe even Bannock counties are within reach for her.

Shoshone seems like prime Trump territory but the others are possible.
