Quinn. Never underestimate Chicago.

In a non-Presidential year, turnout will be lower, and Quinn is very unpopular.  IMO, the suburbs will provide his margin of defeat.

Quinn was re-elected in a non-presidential year, he was also unpopular at the time. I'm not disagreeing with you though, I think he'll lose this time around as Rauner is a better candidate than Brady and Quinn is more unpopular than he was before.

That type of “blame America” rhetoric may win Paul accolades at a conference of isolationists but it does nothing to improve our standing in the world.

I agree with this. Imagine if Dillard was the nominee, the race would be over by now

Basically with Hillary vs. the GOP field, you're picking between spending the summer living with the shrill aunt who isn't much fun at all or the uncle whose hand always gets a little too close to your privates whenever you're around him.  No matter how much fun he claims you're going to have reforming government together just you and him, the aunt has the edge.

It would be nice if the tail end of this thread were spliced on to the August thread of the same name and then this one locked so all the comments were in one place.

Bit of a novice at Atlas modding, but can't Mods merge threads? Seems like a pretty basic moderator tool on most other forums

Yes, but that requires one of this board's Mods to do the work. I could do it if it were on the board I mod, but I can't do it here.
